Beginning with Sage 100 ERP 2013 the ability to use PC Charge from Verifone as a way to integrate your credit card merchant account of choice to your Sage 100 ERP has been discontinued. Instead Sage now offers integration to their own Sage Payment Services as the sole available option for integrated credit and other payment processing.
This has caused customers and partners to wonder whether third party options which re-enable credit card integrations to providers other than Sage Payments might be forthcoming.
At least one provider of such a solution had announced plans to upgrade their integration to work with Sage 100 ERP 2013.
Sage last night clarified their position on third party credit card integrations to Sage 100 ERP. In short they will not be allowed.
Starting with Sage 100 ERP Sage removed all credit card information from Sage 100 ERP and now stores it in the Sage Vault. From this location Sage can process integrated credit card transactions and does not need to subject each release of their Sage 100 ERP (including product updates) to an expensive PCI audit or review.
If you are using a credit card merchant other than Sage Payments and you wish to have integrated credit card processing in Sage 100 ERP 2013 then you will need to contact Sage Payments to obtain a merchant account through them.
