How to Import Credit Card Statement/Transactions in Sage 2019

import credit card statement transactions sage 2019

Usually within the 4-7-7 Import Credit Card Transactions window, one can utilize the Sage Bank Feeds in order to download credit card transactions automatically over to Sage 100 Contractor.

Likewise the user can also download credit card transactions from their bank to an Excel or CSV file, edit the data as required and then copy the transactions over to the 4-7-7 Import Credit Card Transactions grid, or one can also type the transactions onto the grid.

Once the downloaded transactions are displayed within the grid, the user can then select which transactions to add over to their company records.

Note: The Bank Feeds can connect to one credit card account per card issuer (bank). In case the customer is using Bank Feeds to download transactions from a bank for which they have more than one credit card, then they need to create separate card issuer accounts for every credit card number so that they can import and reconcile transactions for all the credit card accounts. For example, say the customer has a 2 VISA credit cards from one bank, each with a unique number:


In this case, they could set up 2 separate card issuer accounts (in the 4-7-1 Card Issuers Accounts window), in the following manner:

  • 2005 – Visa 9256
  • 2006 – Visa 9214

Next, add the corresponding credit card to every issuer account in 4-7-1 Card Issuers Accounts.

If multiple card holders share a credit card number, in this case you do not need to set up separate general ledger accounts or separate issuers. One can simply import credit card transactions for a single general ledger account if there is only one credit card account number to be reconciled.
