According to posts on the internet and information gleaned from our Channel Partner Network it would appear that on May 2nd, 2018 Sage 100 versions 4.5 and prior, formerly MAS 90 and MAS 200, could no longer process credit cards through Paya, formerly, Sage Payment Solutions. Most companies on these versions of Sage 100 mentioned they had a processing blackout for over 24 hours, some even longer. It is currently unclear whether the companies using these versions have abruptly been forced to stop processing or whether they will be forced to stop processing as of June 30, 2018 the last day the card brands will allow transactions to flow on any TLS lower than TLS 1.2.
APS SUPPORTS TLS 1.2 IN BOTH SAGE 100 4.4 AND 4.5 VERSIONS
This puts Companies using these products and the Channel Partner Support Network in a real bind.
In response, APS has answered the call. If you are still running these versions and need the ability to process payments immediately, APS has created a quick-boarding process to help assist merchants in need. Here is how it works:
Submit your two most recent merchant statements to Patricia at firstname.lastname@example.org, and provide the following information:
- Is your company consumer facing, or business-to-business?
- What type of products are you selling?
- Are you processing payments through your ERP only? If not, are you processing eCommerce or Retail (card present) transactions as well?
- What version of MAS are you running? Example: MAS90 4.4
Once this information is supplied, within a few hours a merchant application will be emailed back to you, which can be filled out online. Within 24 hours, your company will have the ability to process payments through American Payment Solutions, while funding may not happen within a few days until the account is approved through underwriting.
