Setting up eBanking in Sage200c
To set up e-Banking you will need to follow the steps below:
1. Install the relevant e-Banking plugin for your bank.
Each bank will have a specific plugin that will need to be installed on each machine that will create the payment runs.
Not all bank are supported by the e-Banking functionality. The list of supported banks can be found at: https://my.sage.co.uk/public/sage-ebanking/compatible-banks.aspx
Once you have found the relevant banking plugin, you will need to download this and run the file on each machine.
When this is run, it will very quickly complete a progress bar and then present you with the following screen:
The plugin is now installed.
2. Install the e-Banking component.
Within Sage 200 there is an additional component that needs to be installed.
You will need to select the cog icon in the top right hand corner:
Then select Installers > Install eBanking components
This will run through a quick progress box and then will disappear.
3. Set up the cash book accounts to use e-Banking.
Each cash book bank account that you will use to make payments from using the payment runs, will need to be configured. To do this you will need to go to Cash Book > Cash Book Accounts > Amend Bank Account Details.
Select the bank account from the drop down list and go to the E-Banking tab.
The drop down list for E-Banking service will show the list of services that have been installed on the machine. Select whichever is appropriate for this bank account.
