Quickly record payments & refunds received against an invoice and show this to your customer using the “take payment” functionality.

Set up payment methods
The option to take a payment against your invoices will only show up after you've added payment methods to your Current RMS system.
To do this, head to System Setup > List of values and edit the list called “Payment Methods”.
On the next screen, use the green add a list of values entry button to add in a list of ways that you take payments.
Choose one of the payment methods to be the default by ticking the box and click the blue Update List of Values button to save.
Map payment methods to Sage
Head to System Setup > Integrations > Sage and map payment methods in the “Payment Method Mappings” section.
You’ll see a list of your payment methods on the left, a list of Sage deposit accounts in the middle, and a list of Sage payment methods on the right. Map each method here.

Once you’ve set up payment methods, go to an invoice that you’d like to record a payment against and click Take Payment under Actions. Make sure it’s issued and posted first. The “Take Payment” pop-up box appears.
Choose a reference to identify the payment (e.g. “Deposit” or “Part Payment”), select a payment method from the list that you set up earlier, choose a date that the payment was received, and specify the amount received.
Click the blue Take payment button to add this payment.
Your payment will be recorded in Sage and you’ll see that the amount paid and amount due under “Sage Information” have adjusted.
Can Current RMS process credit cards?
Not right now, but this is something that’s on our customer wishlist for future consideration. The wishlist is the primary way that we drive development on Current, looking to implement ideas where there’s a fair amount of customer demand.
If you’d like to see this added to Current RMS, submit your thoughts on that here: Customer Wishlist.
Sage does offer full payment processing however so you can easily get invoices paid via credit card once posted from Current RMS. Check out the Sage website for more information on this.
