Included in the Sage 100 2017 release late last year, Sage improved payment flexibility by allowing you to offer your customers the option to pay invoices through ACH transactions. Not only does this new feature allow you to get paid faster, it can also reduce fees associated with credit card payments.
Here’s a closer look at the new ACH Payments in Accounts Receivable and Sales Order.
ACH Payments in Accounts Receivable
In accounts receivable, you can now enter ACH payments in the following tasks:
- A/R Invoice Data Entry
- Cash Receipts Entry
- Repetitive Invoice Entry
To enable this feature, you must have a Sage Payment Solutions account that is set up for ACH payments. You can then enable the feature on the Payments tab in Company Maintenance and set up ACH payment types in Payment Type Maintenance (screenshot below).
ACH Payments in Sales Order
In sales order, you can now enter ACH payments in the following tasks:
- Sales Order Entry
- S/O Invoice Data Entry
Again, you must have a Sage Payment Solutions account that is set up for ACH payments to enable the ACH features in Sales Order.
More Flexible Payments
A number of fields were added or renamed throughout the software in order to accommodate the new ACH payments capability. In addition, a number of reports and listings have been updated or added. Refer to the Sage 100 2017 Customer Upgrade Guide for full details and guidance.
The end result is that you can now offer customers more payment flexibility and get faster access to your funds by accepting ACH transactions and electronic checks.
