NOTE: Please ensure the Sage 50 Connector is installed on your main Sage 50 machine/server - if managed by your IT, they can follow the same steps to install.

Once you have signed up to Satago, you'll be asked to connect your accounting package. If you use Sage 50, which is a desktop version of Sage, you'll need to install Satago's Sage 50 connector which will pull your data from Sage and push it into Satago. This is a read-only connection, meaning Satago will not push any information back to your Sage 50 and you can uninstall the connector from your machine at any time.

The connector should be installed on the same machine that your main instance of Sage 50 is installed on. If your Sage 50 is installed on a company server managed by your IT team, you will need to ask them to assist with the installation.

Follow the steps below to connect your Sage 50 accounts package.
