The TLS 1.2 shift
In 2015, the PCI Security Standards Council mandated that merchants must discontinue the use of TLS 1.0 by June 2018. Transport Layer Security (TLS) ensures privacy between communicating applications and their users on the internet. However, TLS 1.0 and 1.1 no longer meet minimum security requirements due to known vulnerabilities in the protocol. TLS 1.0 and 1.1 carry a significant risk of data breaches.
As of May 2, 2018, users of Sage 100 versions 4.5 and below (formerly MAS90 and MAS200) are no longer TLS 1.2-compliant. Users of these versions have the option to upgrade to a newer version of Sage 100 to maintain TLS 1.2 compliance and to continue processing credit cards.
But what if you don’t want to upgrade your Sage 100 software?
No upgrade required
EBizCharge for Sage 100 is TLS 1.2-compliant for all versions of Sage 100. Whether you use Sage 100 4.05 or 4.6, EBizCharge is fully TLS 1.2-compliant. There’s no need to upgrade your software or pay hefty upgrading costs simply to continue processing credit cards.

EBizCharge for Sage 100
EBizCharge is a native integration for Sage 100 that allows you to accept debit, credit, and ACH payments directly in your Sage software.
Simply process payments with the EBizCharge module inside Sage 100, and the module will automatically post payments to invoices and update your accounts receivable and general ledger. No more double data entry, switching between programs, or hours spent reconciling payments. EBizCharge streamlines your workflow and automates the payment process so you can focus on what truly matters—your core business.
You can also take advantage of EBizCharge Connect, our online customer invoice payment portal that simplifies the collections process.
With EBizCharge Connect, customers log in to a secure online portal to pay off outstanding invoices from any internet-connected device. Whether they’re on the go or in the office, customers can make full or partial payments when it’s convenient for them. Once payment is made, EBizCharge Connect syncs back to Sage 100 and posts payments to invoices. You can even set up automatic payment reminders—emails sent to customers reminding them to pay—so you don’t have to manually contact clients and ask them to pay.
No more time spent contacting clients or arranging times for payment. EBizCharge Connect makes it easy and convenient for customers to pay and removes the burden of collections from you.
