Chapter 1: Getting Started
Learn the basics of Sage 300 Payment Processing, including opening your account with Sage Payment
Solutions, using Sage Virtual Terminal, and more.
Payment Processing Overview
Payment Processing is a Sage 300 program that lets you process credit card payments from your
customers. You use it with Sage Exchange, a secure payment-processing application that integrates
Sage 300 with Sage Payment Solutions.
Some features described in this guide may not be available in your Sage 300 system .
Payment Processing Features
Payment Processing includes the following features:
l
l
l
l
Secure, PCI-compliant payment processing. Sage 300 Payment Processing meets the Payment
Application Data Security Standard (PA-DSS) for processing transactions and storing credit card
details.
Secure storage of customer credit card information. Sage Payment Solutions stores credit card
details securely in an online vault system. This allows you to save and reuse credit card information
for your customers without storing it in your company database, ensuring that your payment
processing is PCI compliant and reducing your exposure to credit card fraud.
A Process Credit Card screen. This screen allows you to review, and where applicable, edit billing
information, document totals, and other information for a transaction before you submit it to Sage
Payment Solutions for processing. After you process a transaction, it displays transaction details and
status information you can use to verify that the transaction was processed correctly, and to look up
transaction reports.
Card reader device support. You can use a card reader device to swipe credit cards at the point of
sale, minimizing manual data entry and reducing the risk of errors.

Seamless integration with Accounts Receivable and Order Entry. You can open the Process
Credit Card screen from key screens in Accounts Receivable and Order Entry to quickly preauthorize, capture, and process payments, or to void or refund previously processed transactions.
Real-time transaction reports. Sign in to Sage Virtual Terminal to view and export reports on
transactions, batches, and expiring credit cards.
Support for multiple currencies, banks, and merchant accounts. Flexible processing codes allow
you to select the bank, currency, and merchant account to be used when each credit card
transaction is processed. If you use multicurrency accounting, you can set up separate Sage
Payment Solutions merchant accounts to process transactions in USD and CAD.
Support for Level 2 Data Credit Card Processing. Payment Processing supports Level 2 Data
Credit Card Processing by submitting sales tax information separately from transaction totals.
English, French, and Spanish language support.
Processing Credit Cards in Accounts Receivable and Order Entry
After you install and activate Payment Processing, screens in Accounts Receivable and Order Entry
are updated to support credit card processing. For more information, see "About Payment Processing
Transactions" (page 17).
Getting Started
For instructions on installing, activating, and setting up Payment Processing, see "Setting Up Payment
Processing" (page 7).

About Sage Exchange

stored in a PCI-compliant vault, protecting you from exposure to non-compliance penalties and credit
card fraud.
In addition to providing integrated ERP payment processing, Sage Payment Solutions also offers gift
and loyalty card programs, merchant cash advances and loans, non-profit and healthcare payment
solutions, and more.
To learn more about Sage Payment Solutions, visithttp://na.sage.com/us/sage-payment-solutions.
About Sage Exchange
Sage Exchange is a secure payment-processing application that connects Sage 300 to Sage Payment
Solutions, enabling merchants to process credit card transactions directly in Sage 300. This allows you to
process credit card transactions without storing sensitive credit card information in your company
database, which reduces your Payment Card Industry (PCI) compliance costs and protects you from the
risk of credit card fraud.
Downloading and Installing Sage Exchange
After activating Payment Processing, you must install Sage Exchange on every workstation you will use
to process credit card transactions.
To download Sage Exchange, visit
https://www.sageexchange.com/install/sageexchangedesktopbootstrapper.zip.
Known Installation Issues
Firewall and antivirus software may prevent you from installing Sage Exchange. To prevent installation
issues, you may need to perform the following steps:
1. Add the following URLs to the safe zone in your antivirus and firewall software:
l
sagepayments.net
l
sageexchange.com
User's Guide — 3
Chapter 1: Getting Started
2. Add the following files to the safe zone in your antivirus software:
l
Sageexchange.exe
l
SpsModuleSdkCl.dll
If you experience other issues while downloading and installing Sage Exchange, see "Sage Payment
Solutions Support" (page 70) for Sage Payment Solutions support information.
Launching Sage Exchange
Sage Exchange launches automatically when you process a transaction in Payment Processing, and
runs in your system tray.
To start Sage Exchange manually, click the Start button on the Windows taskbar, and then click All
Programs > Sage Payment Solutions > Sage Exchange.
The first time you enter credit card details or process a transaction, you may experience a delay while
Sage Exchange launches, authenticates your merchant account information, and opens the Sage
Payment Solutions browser form.
After the initial authentication, Sage Exchange remains open in the system tray while Sage 300 is
running, so subsequent credit card transactions will launch the Sage Payment Solutions browser form
much more quickly.
About Sage Virtual Terminal
Sage Virtual Terminal is a secure website that you can use to:
l
Review, process, or void current transactions
l
View reports on transactions, batches, and expiring credit cards
l
Export reports to an Excel spreadsheet, PDF, or XPS file
l
Print receipts for credit card transactions
l
Settle credit card transactions
Each transaction you process in Sage 300 Payment Processing is recorded in Sage Virtual Terminal,
so you can sign in anytime to view current transaction information and reports.

About Card Reader Devices
Card reader devices, also called terminals or card swipe devices, allow merchants to accept debit card
payments and credit card payments by swiping a credit or debit card through a terminal at the point of
sale.

swipe a customer's card, eliminating the need to manually enter card information and reducing the risk of
data entry errors.
Sage Payment Solutions offers new and refurbished Class A-Certified card reader devices from leading
industry manufacturers, including countertop and wireless solutions. For more information, visit
na.sage.com/sage payment solutions.

information you need to set up Payment Processing.
Setting Up Payment Processing
To use Payment Processing, you must have the current versions of Accounts Receivable 2017 and
Order Entry 2017 installed and activated.
You must also apply for a separate Sage Payment Solutions merchant account for each currency in
which you will process credit card transactions. To apply for a Sage Payment Solutions merchant
account, visit http://na.sage.com/us/sage-payment-solutions.
To set up Payment Processing:
1. Download Sage Exchange and install it on each workstation you will use to process credit card
payments. For details and instructions, see "About Sage Exchange" (page 3).
2. In Common Services, use the PMT Options screen to select options that specify how you preauthorize and process credit card payments. For more information, see "PMT Options Screen"
(page 41).
3. In Common Services, use the PMT Processing Codes screen to set up processing codes that
specify the bank, currency, and merchant account information to be used when processing credit
card transactions. For more information and instructions, see "About Processing Codes" (page 10)
and "Adding, Editing, or Deleting Processing Codes" (page 11).
4. Set up Accounts Receivable, Order Entry, and Payment Processing security authorizations for
Sage 300 users. For more information, see "Payment Processing Security Authorizations" (page 8).
Because Payment Processing integrates with Order Entry and Accounts Receivable, the system
administrator may also need to assign additional security authorizations to users for tasks related to
those programs.
User's Guide — 7
Chapter 2: Setting Up Payment Processing
To pre-authorize credit card payments and void pre-authorizations in Order Entry, you must have
Payment Processing Card Transaction Processing security authorization. If you need to process
(capture) and void credit card payments in Order Entry, you must also have the following security
authorizations:

Order Entry: Invoice Entry
l
Accounts Receivable: Receipt Entry
5. On the A/R Payment Codes screen, specify the payment type SPS Credit Card for each payment
code you will use when processing credit card transactions.
6. If you want to enable Accounts Receivable users to void credit card transactions, or to process
payment for a credit card transaction after printing a receipt or deposit slip, open the A/R Options
screen and select the Allow Edit After Receipt Printed and Allow Edit After Deposit Slip Printed
options on the Transactions tab. (If you do not select these options, the Charge, Quick Charge,
and Void buttons are disabled on the A/R Receipt Entry screen).

Chapter 2: Setting Up Payment Processing
About Processing Codes
A processing code specifies the bank, currency, and merchant account that will be used to process a
credit card transaction. Before you can process credit card transactions in Accounts Receivable or
Order Entry, you must set up at least one processing code with the merchant ID and merchant key for a
Sage Payment Solutions merchant account.
On the PMT Processing Codes setup screen, you can create multiple processing codes to specify
different combinations of merchant account, currency, and bank.
Example:
Say you use separate merchant accounts to process credit card transactions for your web store and
retail outlet, but you use the same bank and currency for each account. You could set up two
processing codes called WEBSTORE and RETAIL that use the same bank and currency, and then
specify the merchant account to be used for each code.
After setting up processing codes, you select a processing code when entering a credit card transaction
in Accounts Receivable or Order Entry, or when entering credit card information for a customer in
Accounts Receivable.
Using Merchant Account Information
You can use the same merchant account information in multiple processing codes. However, each
merchant code is linked to a single currency, so all processing codes that use a common merchant
account must also use the currency for that merchant account.
If you use multicurrency accounting, you must apply for a Sage Payment Solutions merchant account
for each currency in which you will process credit card transactions.
For more information, or to apply for a merchant account, visit http://na.sage.com/us/sage-payment-
solutions.
Modifying and Deleting Processing Codes
You can use the PMT Processing Codes screen to modify and delete processing codes you have set
up, as long as they have not been specified for saved credit cards or used in any transactions.
10 — Sage 300 Payment Processing
Adding, Editing, or Deleting Processing Codes
If a processing code has been specified for a saved credit card in Accounts Receivable, or if it has been
used to process a credit card transaction, you cannot modify or delete the processing code.
Adding, Editing, or Deleting Processing Codes
A processing code specifies the bank, currency, and merchant account that will be used to process a
credit card transaction.
You can use the same merchant account information to create multiple processing codes. However,
merchant codes are currency-specific, so all processing codes that use a common merchant account
must also use the currency for that merchant account.
For more information about processing codes, or for help using the fields on the Processing Codes
screen, see "About Processing Codes" (page 10).
Before you start:
l
You must have at least one Sage Payment Solutions merchant account for each currency in which
you will process credit card transactions. For more information, or to apply for a merchant account,
visit http://na.sage.com/us/sage-payment-solutions.
To add a processing code:
1. Open Common Services > Payment Processing > PMT Setup > Processing Codes .
2. Enter basic information for the processing code.
a. In the Processing Code field, enter a name for the processing code. For example, you might
create a name that reflects the context in which the code will be used (such as WEBSTORE) or
the bank and currency (such as SEATACUSD).
b. In the Description field, enter a description that will help users select this code when it appears in
a Finder or list.

code.
d. In the Currency field, select the currency in which transactions that use this code will be
processed.
Note: When you are processing a credit card transaction that uses this code, if you select a
currency other than the one that was specified for this code, an error message informs you
that the currency does not match the one specified for the processing code.
3. Enter and validate merchant account information.
a. In the Merchant ID field, enter the merchant ID for the Sage Payment Solutions merchant
account you will use to process transactions that use this code.

About Payment Processing Transactions
Payment Processing integrates seamlessly with key screens in Order Entry and Accounts Receivable,
allowing you to process credit cards while working in Sage 300.
You use the integrated screens in Accounts Receivable and Order Entry to launch the PMT Process
Credit Card screen, where you enter or review billing information, order totals, and credit card details.
From this screen, you launch the Sage Payment Solutions browser form, where you complete the
transaction.
After Sage Payment Solutions processes the transaction, transaction details and a status message
appear on the Process Credit Card screen.

O/E Invoice Entry. Depending on the options you select on the PMT Options screen, a Capture
button allows you to capture a pre-authorized credit card payment for a shipment.
O/E Order Entry. Pre-authorize, Quick Pre-authorize, and Capture buttons allow you to preauthorize and capture a credit card payment for an order.

to capture and invoice pre-authorized credit card payments for multiple Order Entry documents.
O/E Shipment Entry. A Capture button allows you to capture a pre-authorized credit card payment
for an order.
About Pre-authorizing, Capturing, and Forcing Credit Card
Payments
You pre-authorize a credit card payment when you want to verify that sufficient credit exists on a
customer's credit card before processing a sale.
When you create a pre-authorization, the cardholder's credit limit is reduced by the amount of the preauthorization until the pre-authorization is captured or expires.
18 — Sage 300 Payment Processing
About Pre-authorizing, Capturing, and Forcing Credit Card Payments
After pre-authorizing a payment, you can capture (process) the payment or void the pre-authorization. In
Order Entry, you can also use the O/E Capture Payments With Invoices screen to capture and invoice
pre-authorized payments for multiple Order Entry documents.
If a pre-authorization has expired recently, you may be able to force a payment for the pre-authorized
amount.
Pre-authorizing Payments
On the O/E Order Entry screen, you can click Pre-authorize or Quick Pre-authorize to pre-authorize a
credit card payment.
The amount of a pre-authorization does not need to match the amount captured in the final sale. The
captured amount may be more (as when a restaurant customer adds a tip) or less (as when a service
station customer swipes a credit card, and then purchases fuel that costs less than the amount preauthorized for a fill-up).
Important!
If it is likely that more than seven days will pass before an order is shipped, you should not preauthorize a credit card payment for the order. If you do, the pre-authorization may expire, in which case
your merchant service provider will charge a fee. (Credit card pre-authorization in Sage Payment
Solutions expires after approximately seven days.)
Rather than pre-authorize a credit card payment, you can process an initial prepayment when the
order is created, and then process the balance when the order is shipped.
For more information, see "Pre-authorizing a Credit Card Payment" (page 28).
Capturing Pre-authorized Payments
You capture a pre-authorized credit card payment when you are ready to process payment for goods
that you have shipped, or for goods or services that a customer has received.
You can capture a pre-authorization only once. After you capture it, the pre-authorization is released in
full, regardless of whether the amount captured matches the amount that was pre-authorized.
On some Order Entry transaction screens, you can click the Capture button to capture (process) a preauthorized credit card payment. This button appears on the O/E Order Entry and O/E Shipment Entry

Forcing Payment for Expired Pre-authorizations
If a pre-authorization has expired, you may be able to force a payment for the pre-authorized amount.
Note: Forced transactions may be subject to higher fees than regular transactions, depending on the
terms of your agreement with your merchant service provider.
You can force a payment if the pre-authorization has expired recently (typically within 30 days), and if
you used a saved credit card for the pre-authorization (that is, you did not select the Enter A Card For
One-Time Use option when processing the pre-authorization).
If you attempt to use the PMT Process Credit Card screen to capture an expired pre-authorization that
cannot be forced, a message informs you that you must create a new pre-authorization or prepayment.
If you are using the O/E Capture Payments With Invoices screen to capture and invoice multiple preauthorized payments, Sage 300 attempts to force all expired pre-authorizations. If an expired preauthorization cannot be forced, a message informs you that the payment could not be processed.
Voiding Existing Pre-authorizations
On the O/E Order Entry screen, you can click the Void Pre-auth button to open the O/E Preauthorization screen, and then click Void to void an existing pre-authorization.
Merchant service providers charge a fee for voiding a credit card pre-authorization. However, this fee is
lower than the fee that is charged if you do not void or capture a pre-authorization and allow it to expire.
For this reason, we recommend that you void any pre-authorization that will not be captured.
For more information, see "Voiding a Credit Card Pre-authorization" (page 36).

About Quick Processing for Credit Card Transactions
If you use Payment Processing, 'quick' processing buttons allow you to process some credit card
transactions with one click:
l
Quick Pre-authorize. Pre-authorize a credit card payment with one click.
The Quick Pre-authorize button is available on the O/E Order Entry screen.
l
Quick Charge. Process a credit card payment with one click.
The Quick Charge button is available on the following screens:
l
O/E Prepayments
l
A/R Prepayments
l

Note: The Quick Charge button cannot be used to capture a pre-authorized payment.
Before you can use quick processing buttons for a customer, you must:
l
Set up a credit card for the customer with the Use This as Default Card option selected (on the A/R
Credit Card Information screen).
Also, this default credit card must use the same currency as the customer’s currency.
The currency for a credit card is determined by the Processing Code specified for the credit card on
the A/R Credit Card Information screen.
The currency for a customer is determined by the Account Set specified for the customer on the
Processing tab of the A/R Customers screen.
l
Specify a payment code for the customer (on the Processing tab of the A/R Customers screen) that
uses the payment type SPS Credit Card.
Note: When using quick processing buttons, you do not enter any information for transactions. If you
need full control over transaction details (such as billing information, order totals, and credit card
details), use the Pre-authorize or Charge buttons instead.

Capturing and Invoicing Pre-authorized Credit Card
Payments
You capture a pre-authorized credit card payment when you are ready to process payment for goods
that you have shipped, or for goods or services that a customer has received.
In Order Entry, you can use the O/E Capture Payments With Invoices screen to capture and invoice
pre-authorized credit card payments for multiple orders or shipments in a batch. For more information
about the O/E Capture Payments With Invoices screen, see the Order Entry help.
Note: You can also use O/E transaction entry screens to capture individual pre-authorized payments
by document. For more information, see "Capturing a Pre-authorized Credit Card Payment" (page
32).
Before you start:
l
A credit card pre-authorization must exist for one or more Order Entry documents. For instructions
on creating a credit card pre-authorization, see "Pre-authorizing a Credit Card Payment" (page 28).
l
Sage Exchange must be installed and running on the workstation you are using to capture the preauthorized payments. For more information, see "About Sage Payment Solutions" (page 2).
l
You must have a working Internet connection.
To capture and invoice pre-authorized credit card payments:
1. Open Order Entry > O/E Transactions > Capture Payments with Invoices .
2. In the A/R Receipt Batch Date field, specify the date for the receipt batch (or batches) that will be
created when you capture pre-authorized payments.
Note: If you process payments that use multiple processing codes, a separate Accounts
Receivable receipt batch is created for each processing code.
3. If you want to filter documents by processing code or document number, specify criteria.
a. In the From/To Processing Code fields, specify a range of processing codes to view, or accept
the default entries to view pre-authorized payments for all processing codes. (A processing
code specifies the bank, currency, and merchant account that will be used to process a credit

card transaction.)
b. In the From/To document number fields, specify a range of shipment numbers and/or order
numbers to view, or accept the default entries to view pre-authorized payments for all documents.
Note: If you specify ranges of both shipment numbers and order numbers, only pre-authorized
payments that match all criteria you specify will appear in the table.
c. Click the Go
button.
Documents that match the criteria you specified appear in the table.
4. If you do not want to capture and invoice pre-authorized payments for all documents that appear in
the table, set the value in the Apply column to "No" for those documents, and then select documents
for which to process payments.
l
To set the value in the Apply column, select a row, and then double-click the Apply column or
press the spacebar.
l
If you want to set this value to "No" for all documents, click the Apply None button.
l
If you want to set this value to "Yes" for all documents again, click the Apply All button.

invoices, a message displays detailed information about each error.
Tip: If any payments were not processed, or if any invoices were not created, print this
message to create a record of errors that you need to resolve.
l
If you select Print Invoices After Capture, the O/E Invoices report screen opens after Sage 300
processes payments and creates invoices. By default, the numbers of the first and last invoice in
the new batch are specified in the From Invoice and To Invoice fields, and the Include Invoices
Already Printed option is cleared.
l
If you select Print Receipts After Capture, the A/R Receipts report screen opens after Sage 300
processes payments and creates invoices. By default, the numbers of the first and last Accounts
Receivable batches created while capturing payments are specified in the From and To batch
number fields.
After capturing and invoicing credit card payments
If any payments could not be processed, resolve errors related to those payments.
When you pre-authorize a credit card payment, credit card information is validated in Sage Payment
Solutions, and the cardholder's credit limit is reduced by the amount of the pre-authorization until the
pre-authorization is captured or expires. For these reasons, it is rare for errors to occur while capturing
a payment. However, the following issues may cause a capture to fail:
l
The pre-authorization has expired and cannot be forced. Pre-authorizations usually expire after
seven days, and you may be able to "force" payment for an expired pre-authorization up to 30 days
after expiry. If more than 30 days have passed since the pre-authorization expired, you may be
unable to process payment.

l
l
The pre-authorization has expired and credit card information was not saved. If credit card
information was not saved when the pre-authorization was created, you cannot force payment after
the pre-authorization expires.
The pre-authorization has been voided. If you or another user voided the transaction in Sage 300 or
in Sage Virtual Terminal, you cannot capture payment.
The receipt amount is zero. You cannot capture a pre-authorized payment if the receipt amount is
zero.
Another user modified the order or shipment during payment processing. If another user changes
the order or shipment information during processing, the transaction may fail.
The Internet connection was lost or interrupted. If a capture fails due to issues with your Internet
connection, you should be able to process the transaction again successfully when the connection is
restored.
Merchant information has been changed. If you or another user changed the merchant information
or processing codes for your Payment Processing system, capture may fail for pre-authorizations
created using the original merchant information or processing codes.

Pre-authorizing a Credit Card Payment
You pre-authorize a credit card payment when you want to verify that sufficient credit exists on a
customer's credit card before processing a sale. When you create a pre-authorization, the cardholder's
credit limit is reduced by the amount of the pre-authorization until the pre-authorization is captured or
expires. The amount of a pre-authorization does not need to match the amount captured in the final sale. The
captured amount may be more (as when a restaurant customer adds a tip) or less (as when a service
station customer swipes a credit card, and then purchases fuel that costs less than the amount preauthorized for a fill-up).
28 — Sage 300 Payment Processing
Pre-authorizing a Credit Card Payment
If you use multicurrency accounting, you can pre-authorize a credit card payment only if the customer
currency matches the currency specified for an existing processing code. For example, if you want to
pre-authorize a credit card payment for a USD customer, USD must be specified as the currency for an
existing processing code.
Merchant service providers charge a fee for voiding a credit card pre-authorization. However, this fee is
lower than the fee that is charged if you do not void or capture a pre-authorization and allow it to expire.
For this reason, we recommend that you void any pre-authorization that will not be captured.
If a pre-authorization has expired, you may be able to force a payment for the pre-authorized amount.
You can force a payment only if the pre-authorization has expired recently (typically within 30 days), and
if you used a saved credit card for the pre-authorization (that is, you did not select the Enter A Card For
One-Time Use option when processing the pre-authorization).
Note: Forced transactions may be subject to higher fees than regular transactions.
If it is likely that more than seven days will pass before an order is shipped, you should not pre-authorize
a credit card payment for the order. If you do, the pre-authorization may expire, in which case your
merchant service provider will charge a fee. (Credit card pre-authorization in Sage Payment Solutions
expires after approximately seven days.) Rather than pre-authorize a credit card payment, you can
process an initial prepayment when the order is created, and then process the balance when the order is
shipped.

Capturing a Pre-authorized Credit Card Payment
You capture a pre-authorized credit card payment when you are ready to process payment for goods
that you have shipped, or for goods or services that a customer has received.
You can capture a pre-authorization only once. After you capture it, the pre-authorization is released in
full, regardless of whether the amount captured matches the amount that was pre-authorized.
On the O/E Shipment Entry screen, when you open a document with a pre-authorization, the Create
Invoice option is selected by default. You must create an invoice when capturing a pre-authorized
credit card payment from this screen.
Depending on the settings you specified on the PMT Options screen, you may be required to capture a
pre-authorized payment on the O/E Shipment Entry screen before shipping an order, or you may be
able to post the shipment, and then capture the payment later when creating the invoice.
If a pre-authorization has expired, you may be able to force a payment for the pre-authorized amount.
Note: Forced transactions may be subject to higher fees than regular transactions.
For more information about forcing payment, see "About Pre-authorizing, Capturing, and Forcing
Credit Card Payments" (page 18).

the current transaction, that card is selected by default in the Card ID field when you open the PMT
48 — Sage 300 Payment Processing
PMT Process Credit Card Screen
Process Credit Card screen.
For transactions where the Card ID field is editable, you can:
l
Select a saved credit card from the customer record
l
Add a new credit card to be saved in the customer record
l
Add a new credit card to be used one time only
If you select the Enter a Card for One-Time Use option, card details will not be stored in Sage Payment
Solutions, and billing details will not be saved in the customer record.
Entering Billing Details
Enter billing details for the cardholder as they appear on the credit card. If you use Address Verification
Service (AVS), the information in these fields (except the Comments field) is verified against the
information on record for the cardholder when a transaction is processed.
The billing details you enter here may be different from the information in the Sage 300 customer record.
For example, the customer may be using a company credit card, or may be authorized to use a card on
behalf of the primary cardholder.
Important!
Do not record credit card details in the Comments field, including card number, expiration date, and
CVV number. Storing details in this way can compromise credit card security and may constitute a
violation of the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS).
If a security breach occurs, merchants that do not comply with PCI DSS may be subject to fines, card
replacement costs, forensic audits, and other penalties.
Reviewing Transaction Totals
When you initiate a credit card payment from Accounts Receivable or Order Entry, totals for the
transaction appear in the Totals group.
For some transactions, you can edit the amount in the Taxes field in order to comply with Level 2
processing requirements. When you edit this amount, the amount in the Subtotal field is calculated
automatically by subtracting the taxes you entered from the transaction total.

can be different than the amount that was pre-authorized. For example, if a customer at a restaurant
adds a tip, the amount captured will be greater than the amount that was pre-authorized.
You can capture a pre-authorization only once. After the capture, the pre-authorization is always
released in full, regardless of whether the amount captured is equal to or less than the amount that
was pre-authorized.
Reviewing Transaction Details
After a transaction is processed by Sage Payment Solutions, information about the transaction
appears in the Transaction Details area, including the time the transaction was processed, an
authorization code, and a short message indicating the status of the transaction.

Appendix B: Payment Processing FAQ
General Information
What is Payment Processing?
Payment Processing is a Sage 300 program that lets you process credit card payments from your
customers. You use it with Sage Exchange, a secure payment-processing application that integrates
Sage 300 with Sage Payment Solutions.
For an overview of product features and integration with Accounts Receivable and Order Entry, see
"Payment Processing Overview" (page 1).
What features does Payment Processing include?
For an up-to-date list of features included in Payment Processing, see "Payment Processing Overview"
(page 1).
What is Sage Payment Solutions?
Sage Payment Solutions provides complete, Payment Card Industry (PCI) compliant payment
processing solutions for all business types. Sage 300 Payment Processing works exclusively with Sage
Payment Solutions to enable merchants to seamlessly process credit card transactions directly in Sage
300.
For more information, see "About Sage Payment Solutions" (page 2).
What is Sage Exchange?
Sage Exchange is a secure payment-processing application that connects Sage 300 to Sage Payment
Solutions, enabling merchants to process credit card transactions directly in Sage 300. For more
information, see "About Sage Exchange" (page 3).
What is Sage Virtual Terminal?
Sage Virtual Terminal is a secure website that you can use to process credit card transactions, and to
view and export reports on transactions, batches, and expiring credit cards. For more information, see
"About Sage Virtual Terminal" (page 4).
Do I need to install Sage Exchange to use Payment Processing?
Yes. You must install Sage Exchange on each workstation you will use to process credit card payments.
User's Guide — 59
Appendix B: Payment Processing FAQ
For more information, see "About Sage Exchange" (page 3) and "Setting Up Payment Processing"
(page 7).
Can I save credit card information for a customer?
Yes. When you add a credit card, general information about the card is stored in the Accounts
Receivable customer record, and card details (card number and expiration date) are stored in a secure
online "vault" managed by Sage Payment Solutions. For more information, see "Adding, Editing, or
Deleting a Credit Card for a Customer" (page 13).
Payment Card Industry Information
What are PA-DSS and PCI compliance?
The Payment Application Data Security Standard (PA-DSS) is the global security standard created by
the Payment Card Industry (PCI) Security Standards Council. PA-DSS was implemented in an effort to
provide the definitive data standard for software vendors that develop payment applications.
Sage Payment Solutions is included on the list of validated payment applications published by the PCI
Security Standards Council at https://www.pcisecuritystandards.org/approved_companies_
providers/vpa_agreement.php.
For more information about PA-DSS and PCI compliance, including education resources, FAQs, and
compliance deadlines, visit na.sage.com/sage payment solutions/compliance/PCI-Education-and-
Resources.
What is a vault?
A vault is a secure system that stores credit card information. Sage Payment Solutions uses a vault
system to ensure that credit card information is stored securely, allowing merchants to process
payments in a PCI-compliant process without ever storing credit card information in their own systems.
Does Payment Processing support Level 2 and Level 3 Data Credit Card Processing?
Payment Processing supports Level 2 Data Credit Card Processing, which requires that each
transaction include card information, billing details, and sales tax information that is submitted
separately from the total transaction amount.
60 — Sage 300 Payment Processing
Transaction Types
Payment Processing does not currently support Level 3 Data Credit Card Processing, which requires
that each transaction include additional line item details and freight/duty amounts. We are working to
include Level 3 processing in a future release of Payment Processing.
Transaction Types
What is a credit card payment or sale?
A sale transaction authorizes a payment service provider to initiate a payment from the cardholder's
issuing bank to the merchant account. A sale is typically settled within 24-48 hours, before which time it
may be voided by the merchant if there was an error or if the customer wishes to reverse the transaction.
What is a pre-authorization?
A pre-authorization temporarily reduces a cardholder's credit in order to guarantee that funds are
available for a pending transaction. For example, a service station creates a pre-authorization when you
swipe your credit card at a gas pump and authorize a fill-up.
For more information, see "Pre-authorizing a Credit Card Payment" (page 28).
What is a capture?
When a pre-authorization exists for a credit card payment, you "capture" the pre-authorization to
complete the sale.
When you capture (process payment for) a pre-authorized credit card payment, the amount captured
can be different than the amount that was pre-authorized. For example, if a customer at a restaurant
adds a tip, the amount captured will be greater than the amount that was pre-authorized.
You can capture a pre-authorization only once. After the capture, the pre-authorization is always
released in full, regardless of whether the amount captured is equal to or less than the amount that was
pre-authorized.
For more information, see "Capturing a Pre-authorized Credit Card Payment" (page 32).
Can I void a pre-authorization?
You can void a pre-authorization if it has not been captured and has not expired. (Pre-authorizations
typically expire after seven days.)
User's Guide — 61
Appendix B: Payment Processing FAQ
Merchant service providers charge a fee for voiding a credit card pre-authorization. However, this fee is
lower than the fee that is charged if you do not void or capture a pre-authorization and allow it to expire.
For this reason, we recommend that you void any pre-authorization that will not be captured.
For more information, see "Voiding a Credit Card Pre-authorization" (page 36).
What is the difference between voiding a sale and issuing a credit?
Voiding a sale prevents the sale from being processed, whereas a credit (refund) is applied against a
sale that has already been processed. You can void a sale only if the sale has not been settled by the
payment service provider.
For more information, see "Voiding a Credit Card Payment" (page 34).
Processing Transactions
What fees will I pay as a merchant using Payment Processing?
The fees you pay as a merchant using Payment Processing depend on the details of your merchant
account agreement with Sage Payment Solutions. This can vary depending on many factors, including
the number of transactions you process per month.
For more information about Sage Payment Solutions merchant accounts and fees, visit
na.sage.com/sage payment solutions.
What happens when a transaction is processed?
Cardholder, merchant account, and transaction data are encrypted and submitted to Sage Payment
Solutions as an XML request over a secure channel. If you are saving credit card information for an
Accounts Receivable customer, a secure vault ID is created in Sage Payment Solutions to store this
information.
After processing the transaction or storing the card details, Sage Payment Solutions returns an XML
response to Sage 300, and your customer database is updated with details for the transaction.
How long does it take to settle a transaction?
Sage Payment Solutions credit card transactions are typically settled within 24-48 hours.
How long does a pre-authorization remain active before it expires?
Pre-authorizations typically expire after seven days.
62 — Sage 300 Payment Processing
Processing Transactions
If it is likely that more than seven days will pass before an order is shipped, you should not pre-authorize
a credit card payment for the order. If you do, the pre-authorization may expire, in which case your
merchant service provider will charge a fee. (Credit card pre-authorization in Sage Payment Solutions
expires after approximately seven days.)
Rather than pre-authorize a credit card payment, you can process an initial prepayment when the order
is created, and then process the balance when the order is shipped.
Can I swipe cards for payment?
When processing credit card payments in Sage 300, you can use a supported card reader device to
swipe a customer's card, eliminating the need to manually enter card information and reducing the risk of
data entry errors.
Sage Payment Solutions offers new and refurbished Class A-Certified card reader devices from leading
industry manufacturers, including countertop and wireless solutions. For more information, visit
na.sage.com/sage payment solutions.
How do I process a credit card payment in Sage 300?
For instructions on processing a credit card payment, see "Processing a Credit Card Payment" (page
25).
How do I pre-authorize a credit card payment in Sage 300?
For instructions on pre-authorizing a credit card payment, see "Pre-authorizing a Credit Card Payment"
(page 28).
How do I void a credit card pre-authorization or payment in Sage 300?
For instructions on voiding a credit card pre-authorization or payment, see "Voiding a Credit Card Pre-
authorization" (page 36) and "Voiding a Credit Card Payment" (page 34).
Can I process multiple pre-authorized payments in a single batch?
Yes. For instructions on processing multiple pre-authorized payments, see "Capturing and Invoicing
Pre-authorized Credit Card Payments" (page 22).
Why does an error message appear when I try to process ("capture") a pre-authorized payment?
When you pre-authorize a credit card payment, credit card information is validated in Sage Payment
Solutions, and the cardholder's credit limit is reduced by the amount of the pre-authorization until the preauthorization is captured or expires. For these reasons, it is rare for errors to occur while capturing a

payment. However, the following issues may cause a capture to fail:

The pre-authorization has expired and cannot be forced. Pre-authorizations usually expire after
seven days, and you may be able to "force" payment for an expired pre-authorization up to 30 days
after expiry. If more than 30 days have passed since the pre-authorization expired, you may be
unable to process payment.
The pre-authorization has expired and credit card information was not saved. If credit card
information was not saved when the pre-authorization was created, you cannot force payment after
the pre-authorization expires.
The pre-authorization has been voided. If you or another user voided the transaction in Sage 300
or in Sage Virtual Terminal, you cannot capture payment.
The receipt amount is zero. You cannot capture a pre-authorized payment if the receipt amount is
zero.
Another user modified the order or shipment during payment processing. If another user
changes the order or shipment information during processing, the transaction may fail.
The Internet connection was lost or interrupted. If a capture fails due to issues with your Internet
connection, you should be able to process the transaction again successfully when the connection is
restored.
Merchant information has been changed. If you or another user changed the merchant information
or processing codes for your Payment Processing system, capture may fail for pre-authorizations
created using the original merchant information or processing codes.
When processing credit card transactions, should I record credit card details (such as card
number, expiry date, and CVV number) in the Comments field?
No!
Do not record credit card details in the Comments field, including card number, expiration date, and
CVV number. Storing details in this way can compromise credit card security and may constitute a
violation of the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS).
If a security breach occurs, merchants that do not comply with PCI DSS may be subject to fines, card
replacement costs, forensic audits, and other penalties.
