Sage 200 Developer Copies - Setup Process

If you are a member of the Sage Partner program and already have access to the Sage Provisioning Portal, you will be able to set up your test site yourself.

  • Please obtain your authorisation and follow the guidance in the relevant section above.
  • In the case of Standard and Education, you will be able to select the demo rate plan as part of your set up.
  • In the case of Sage 200 Professional, once the site is active you will need to contact [email protected] to change your billing entitlement.

If you are not a member of the Sage Partner Program, please contact [email protected] who will arrange for a partner account to be set up for you within the portal. You will then be able to follow the steps above.

In all cases, developers are not permitted to set up additional sites or use this to distribute to customers.

CAUTION: We will not retrospective correct your billing if you do not set your rate plan correctly, or in the case of Sage 200 Professional you do not notify us of the billing entitlement change. In the case of billing entitlement changes we require a minimum of 2 working days’ notice prior to the end of the month.   

Technical Support / Developer services are unable to setup & provision demo / test sites for you, but once set up we can help with any maintenance or parameter questions, subject to our usual support boundaries.

If you are developing via the API and are not a member of the developer programme, we are happy to set up an environment for you to use, however as storage is required, this is subject to our monthly hosting charge.
