Batch payment file to upload to the bank

Customer who has come from Sage 50 used the feature where she could create a batch file with a list of bank details, names and amounts due to be paid. She could then upload this to her bank and it would action all the payments so would not need to do them one at a time. Would be great if this could be added to Sage Business Cloud also

    Without this feature being added, I will not migrate clients to Sage Accounting from Sage 50 where bulk payments are needed. I do not understand why this has not been implemented in Sage Accounting, as it is not a complicated process. To manually enter each payment into bank software as apposed to uploading them all as one single file is far to time consuming and prone to error. I suspect it hasn't been implemented to enable some other 3rd party to charge per transaction, something I refuse to pay for.

    This would be so useful. Will save time, and reduce manual errors. Too easy to pay the wrong supplier at the moment.

    Would love to have this feature on SageOne, as this is an important feature missing to SageOne.

    This would be very useful. Taking it one step further it would be great if the batch file could be automatically uploaded to the bank once required authorisations applied e.g. we want all payments to be authorised by two people with the appropriate delegation of authority levels.

    This is an important missing feature

    Would really like this feature - it saves having to do everything twice and much less margin for error, also having to manually create accounts for all of my suppliers is very time consuming

    Just noticed this post and I have just added this as an idea - worth getting this as a really useful feature that did exist on Sage 50

    I struggle each month to upload to barclays net, if bank details were included on reports e.i., payment daybook or creditors report, it would make life a lot easier. Why do you have this facility if it cannot be included on your reportd

    Definitely would welcome this!

    dearly love to be able to pay supplier in sage and have it paid via my bank without having to do it all twice!

    Particularly useful when paying several invoices from a supplier as it reduces the risk of paying the wrong amount. I will normally make 4 or 5 batch payments every month - I prefer to pay local suppliers almost as soon as invoices are received.
