Before you can begin using eInvoice’s you will first need to activate your Sage Pay account within your Sage Instant Accounts.
Completing the activation has to be done before any of your transactions can be processed, and reconciled in your accounts software.
Before activating Sage Pay you must first log into your Sage Instant Accounts as a user with administrative rights.
This can be either a user you have created, or the manager on the software.
Changing your settings
Once logged in, you will then need to click on Settings, followed by company preferences.
After selecting Company Preferences, followed by Sage Pay you will be able to enter the details of your account into Sage Instant.
You will be prompted to enter your;
- Vendor Name – of your Sage Pay account
- Username – this is the name of a user from your mysagepay
- Password – the password of the username from your mysagepay
- E-mail Address – your own e-mail address
Important – When entering a username into your Sage Instant Accounts we would advise that you have created a user within your mysagepay to be used specifically with your Sage Instant.
After you have entered the details of your Sage Pay account you will then need to select the bank details for the funds from your eInvoice’s to be allocated too.
Tip – When selecting the bank account please remember to do this carefully, you may find it worthwhile to create a specific bank account for your eInvoice transactions. On a day to day basis you may have a large number of eInvoice transactions that are later transferred into your bank account as a collective value. This will allow you to match the values easier.
You are also able to choose if you would like your Sage Instant Accounts to check for payments each time you open the software, and you can force your Sage Instant to request you enter your password each time.
Your Sage Instant will not automatically download the transactions for you, it will simply take you to the download wizard ready to import the transactions into your Sage Instant accounts software.
