What is Payments Acceptance Service?

  Less than to read

The Sage Payments Acceptance Service lets you create invoices and take online payments from customers. It offers payment options to businesses using Sage applications.

Through a Sage application, users can onboard with payment providers, and create an invoice. This is synchronised to the Payments Acceptance Service. The invoice is then emailed to the customers.

The email has a unique and secure URL customers can use to pay their invoice.
