Sage, which makes cloud enterprise management solutions, has integrated PayPal’s payments software into Sage 50Cloud, Sage’s newest cloud accounting platform.

Sage users can now sign up for PayPal and start to accept payments with a business account. Once the account has been set up, Sage 50cloud customers can start taking payments on invoices straight away.

“Our partnership with PayPal is another great example of how we can support businesses who want simple, accessible and flexible ways of managing money,” stated Seamus Smith, executive vice president of global payments and banking at Sage. “We have created a partnership with a world-leading payment provider to offer a safe and easy way for customers to pay, by adding a 'pay now' button to invoices. I’m excited about the potential opportunities provided through this partnership to further drive customer success.”

“For small businesses looking to grow, time and money are both paramount,” added Nicola Longfield, senior director of small and medium business and partnerships for PayPal, in a statement. “PayPal has the solution to support a business with payments online, on a mobile device, in an app or in person and our integration with Sage continues our commitment to create by better ways to manage and move money, at the same time as offering choice and flexibility when making payments or getting paid.”

Sage 50Cloud already accepts payments through Sage Payment Solutions, if accountants choose to use that feature alongside the accounting software. The company’s payments platform enables payment with credit or debit cards, and checks.

The integration is currently live in the United States, Canada, Germany and the U.K.
