Get paid faster with Invoice Payments*
The biggest challenge most businesses face is keeping a healthy cash flow. The best way to tackle this is to get paid faster by your customers and reduce the likelihood of invoices being unpaid.
With Invoice Payments from Sage Pay you can do just that. By adding Pay Now buttons onto your invoices, your customers will be able to pay you instantly, easily and securely. You’ll also be able to accept card payments over the phone from directly within Sage 50 Accounts. All payments you take are automatically posted into your accounts, saving lots of time. Businesses like yours who use Invoice Payments get paid at least twice as fast as those that don’t. There’s no additional monthly charge…you’ll simply pay a flat fee of 2.5% for the value of each payment you take.
Improved error correction
Everybody makes mistakes and there’s nothing more frustrating than realising that you need to delete and start something again. But the latest functionality within Sage 50 Accounts means that is a thing of the past. You can now quickly and easily edit journals, un-allocate credits and payments from an incorrect invoice and track which users have edited transactions. Meaning it’s never been easier to keep your accounts accurate and up-to-date. Plus, you can feel comfortable knowing that you can quickly review what’s been edited, by who and when.
Drill down on aged debtors and creditors
Get more control of who owes you money and who you owe money to, without the need to move in and out of different screens. A more streamlined process makes it easier to get insight into your cash flow at the click of a button.
