How to

Allow payments to be taken with invoices and orders

Before you can add any payments to the invoice or order, you must:

  • Allow payments to be recorded for invoices and full orders in the Invoice and Order Settings.:

    Open: Sales Order Processing > SOP Utilities > SOP Settings | Invoice and Order Entry.

    Open: Invoicing > Invoicing Utilities > Invoicing Settings | Invoice and Order Entry.

    • Select Allow payments to be recorded during invoicing and full order entry.
  • Specify the text to printed on invoices that are paid in full, on the Invoice Printing tab.
    • Enter the text in Invoice Printing section.
  • Set up payments methods here in Maintain Payment Methods.

Create a payment method

  1. Click Add.
  2. Enter a code and description.
  3. Enter the bank account the payment is taken from.

    Note: You can only select bank accounts in your base currency.

Change or delete a payment method

You can edit any of the details of the payment method except for the Name. Any changes you've made will be applied the next time the charge is added to an order or invoice.

You can delete a payment method at any time, regardless of whether it's linked to an invoice or order.

Useful Info

About payment methods

If a customer pays at the same time as ordering something from you, you can create the invoice or order and enter the payment at the same time. This can be when a customer pays part of the value, as a deposit for example, or when the invoice is paid in full.

Payment methods are just a way for you group payments from the same bank account or that use a particular type of card, so you can report on this.

If you want to integrate Sage 200 with Opayo (formerly Sage Pay), an Online Card Payment payment method is automatically created, when you set up Opayo. See Take card payments with Opayo (Sage Pay).

Payment methods work only in the base currency, so you can't enter a foreign currency payment with an invoice or order.

Reporting on Payment methods

You can see the total value of payments paid using each payment method using the following:

  • The Payment Methods Totals Summary report.

    Open: Sales Order Processing > Reports > Processing > Payment Methods.

  • The View Payment Totals screen.

    Open: Invoicing > Enquiries > View Payment Totals.

    Open: Sales Order Processing > Enquiries > View Payment Totals.

About taking payments with invoices

You enter the invoice details in the usual way and enter the payment details on the Payment with Invoice tab.

When the invoice is posted:

  • The invoice and payment are posted to the customer's account and allocated to each other.
  • The payment amount is posted to the bank account on the payment method.

Make sure any invoices with payments get posted soon after saving as HMRC rules require that the tax point date is the date the payment is received if this is before the invoice date.

About taking payments with orders

You enter the sales order details in the usual way and enter the payment details on the Payment with Invoice tab.

About invoicing payments Immediately

HMRC rules state that VAT should be recorded on the VAT return at the time of invoicing or on receipt of the payment, whichever is the first.

When a payment is taken at the time of ordering, you need to decide whether the payment should be invoiced at the same time.

Note: This doesn't apply to invoices entered via the Invoicing module as it's expected that these will be posted in the same period as they're entered.

Using Opayo

Note - information

Opayo is the new name for Sage Pay. If you're using Sage 200 Professional versions up to 2020 R1, where you see references to "Sage Pay" in the app, these are referring to the Opayo payment service.

Opayo is an online card service provider similar to PayPal. Opayo integrates seamlessly with Sage 200 making it easier for your customers to pay you and easier for you to process those payments.

Once you've subscribed and integrated Opayo with Sage 200, you can:

  • Take card payments from your customers and input them directly into Sage 200. This is useful when a customer pays you over the phone.
  • Add Pay Now buttons to invoices, statements and debtor letters, so your customers can pay you immediately. Your customer just clicks the button and enters their card details.
  • Import payments made using the Pay Now option, directly into Sage 200.

If you want to integrate Sage 200 with Opayo (formerly Sage Pay), an Online Card Payment payment method is automatically created, when you set up Opayo. See Take card payments with Opayo (Sage Pay).
