If you are a Sage 100 end user, you’ve probably learned that card present transactions aren’t the easiest payments to process through your ERP. For years, USB Swipers have been the only way to process transactions in a card present environment, unless you want to purchase a full-scale point of sale, which can be very costly in the ERP space. USB Swipers do not have the ability to process transactions using the EMV-embedded chips, which have been a standard since 2016 in the USA.

Virtual Terminal – Key Benefits and Features

By Patty Benitez on Dec 7, 2017 7:00:00 AM

If you are accepting credit cards in a retail environment only, you are probably very familiar with credit card terminals or point of sale systems. If you are accepting credit card payments in a non-retail environment (over the phone primarily), you can either process transactions through your physical credit card terminal, or through an online virtual terminal. If you want additional features, like saving credit cards on file (using tokenization, of course), sending emailed transaction receipts, or qualifying for Level 2 and Level 3 interchange rates on business-to-business or business-to-government transactions, a virtual terminal is the way to go.

Sage Virtual Terminal vs. APSPAYS

By Patty Benitez on Aug 18, 2017 1:29:11 PM

What is the difference between Sage Virtual Terminal and APSPays?  

The term "Virtual Terminal" is used to refer to web interfaces for processing card-not-present transactions. Virtual terminals offer the ability to make "card-not-present payments." Virtual terminals allow merchants or customers to enter credit card payment information online or via a mobile device to complete payments. Virtual terminals are the  ideal solution for real estate agents, professional services, online payments and other industries. 

You might be surprised how quickly Sage credit card processing fees add up.  Simple credit card processing mistakes can lead to higher credit card processing fees.  Setting up your virtual terminal accounts properly can prevent you from providing incorrect business information that results in higher processing fees.  If you are using Sage Payment Solutions and Sage Virtual Terminal you have options.  American Payment Solutions also integrates with all Sage ERP systems and offers the same features at a lower cost.
