Payment options for e-commerce keep growing! Having more options gives vendors a better ability to negotiate rates. But offering additional payment methods is also important for online revenue growth. In fact, online buyers will stop a purchase if they are not satisfied with payment options. Keeping up with the rapidly expanding payment method field is far easier by using a third-party payment processor. Luckily for Sage 100 users, there are many options and our solution, IN-SYNCH, can provide automated integration for credit card tokenization between the systems to ensure a secure, user-friendly process.
Why Integrated Payment Processing Is Beneficial
In online sales, providing a smooth, simple buying experience is critical. Online buyers will abandon their carts when payment processes don’t meet their expectations. According to ppro research, 42% of online buyers will stop their purchase if they can’t use their favorite payment method. And 58% say they will abandon the checkout process if it is too complicated.
According to McKinsey, (McKinsey: Trends in US Consumer Digital Payments) modernizing payments technology requires three things:
- Fully automated and optimized payments functions including on-demand tokenization, and distributed ledger
- Middleware to easily enable new workflows such as routing and authorization
- Front-end channels that improve the customer experience
We find that companies who use Sage 100 often need greater flexibility with their orders that are purchased with a credit card. Integrated credit card processing is beneficial because it streamlines accounting processes by allowing the credit card transaction to be finalized in Sage 100. This is important if changes are needed to the order for any reason, such as adding freight, or removing a backordered item. In addition, it will vault the card for future use such as processing credit memos or returns.
Payment Processors for Sage 100
With all the current and future changes in payment processing, most online vendors are choosing to use a third-party payment processor. There are several popular payment processors that work with Sage 100 systems. ROI has many customers who use these third parties and IN-SYNCH for integrated credit card tokenization.

Paya: This company uses an open environment which allows simple connectivity for payments from online, in store, or mobile. Their recent acquisition of VelocIT is meant to provide even more advanced digital payment solutions for Sage 100 users.
