Sage MAS 90 and Sage MAS 200 Credit Card Processing Module
If you thought credit card processing was simply too time consuming or too complicated to fit in your sales process, think again. The Credit Card Processing module for Sage MAS 90 and Sage MAS 200 makes this procedure simple and efficient.
The Credit Card Processing module integrates GO Software’s PCCharge Payment Server with Sage MAS 90 and Sage MAS 200 products, allowing you to accept credit card payments through Sales Order Processing, as well as the .store and .order e-Business Manager applets. Credit card payments are authorized and processed directly from within the Sage MAS 90 and Sage MAS 200 applications. All transactional information, such as authorization codes, are captured and stored within Sage MAS 90 for historical lookup and reconciliation purposes.
How Does It Work?
You can choose between a modem connection, or if your credit card processing network supports it, the Internet. Authorizations and payment requests initiated within Sage MAS 90 are sent through the PCCharge Payment Server to your credit card, an intermediary between Sage MAS 90 and your credit card processing network. Validated transaction information is then passed from the processor to PCCharge, and then automatically into your Sage MAS 90 software. You must check with your bank to see which processing network they use and ensure that it is one of the many supported by PCCharge.
The Credit Card Processing module handles both pre-authorizations and deposits in an intuitive fashion. During Sales Order Invoice Entry, for example, once you choose a payment type of credit card, you will automatically be prompted for credit card information. After entering the card number and expiration date, you can enter a deposit amount and press the Authorize Now button. You’ll then be notified that such authorization is being sought, and when obtained, the data is automatically filled into the on-screen fields for Authorization Number, Date, Time, and Transaction Number.
During Sales Order Entry, after you enter the credit card number and expiration date, you have the option of seeking a Payment or a Deposit. If you check the Deposit Box, an option for Pay Balance by Credit Card appears. When you choose these options, you will process the deposit amount immediately and get a pre-authorization for the balance of the sales order. You will then process funds for the balance of the sales order when you create a sales order invoice and update the Sales Journal for this transaction. If your business lends itself more appropriately to batch processing of credit cards, rather than real time authorizationPC Charge Payment Server will support it.
On occasion you may pay for purchases with a credit card. When entering an invoice to record the credit card purchase for your credit card vendor, you can transfer the purchase amount from the credit card vendor to the "purchase vendor" (this is the vendor from whom you purchased the items) to track 1099 and payment history for the purchase vendor. Payment history is recorded for both the purchase vendor and the credit card vendor.
Two reports in Accounts Receivable help to reconcile your transactions. Reports are also available directly from PCCharge. From a convenient option, you can access the PCCharge software’s server and print transaction data directly from the source.
Support and Fees
One year of technical support for PCCharge Payment Server is included in the price of the Credit Card Processing module. This support is provided directly by GO Software and can be used for initial configuration as well as ongoing support questions. The fees paid to process credit cards through the Credit Card Processing module are no different from the fees that would be paid by using traditional terminals, and are paid directly to the processor, not Sage Software or GO Software.
Security and Fraud Prevention
Security is obviously a vital concern for your customers, and is addressed in strategic ways within Sage MAS 90 and Sage MAS 200. Credit card numbers are stored in an encrypted format within the Sage MAS 90 or Sage MAS 200 database. E-Business Manager uses SSL (Secure Socket Layer) to communicate with the Internet client. Further, the system can be configured to only print the last four digits of the credit card number on internal documents.
Credit card fraud costs business millions of dollars each year. PCCharge Payment Server addresses the problem of credit card fraud by using Address Verification Service (AVS) and Card Verification Value 2 (CVV2). CVV2 is a security code printed on the back of most credit cards. When asked for, it helps to ensure the buyer is in possession of the card.
The powerful processing features of the Sage Software Credit Card Processing Module give you the ability to process credit card transactions quickly, efficiently, and cost effectively, while providing superior service to your customers.
