It’s not immediately obvious which Sage package an online retailer should select but Sage Business Partners, Tradebox, have made it easier with “Getting started with Sage Accounts – The online retailers guide”
Online retailers face a specific set of challenges when using Sage, predominantly because of the high volumes of sales. Non-retail businesses have no where near the number of transactions to deal with compared to online retailers, who also need stock control and management information.
The most popular Sage Accounts packages are either Sage Instant Accounts or Sage 50 Accounts, and both packages have different variants. At the back of the guide is a comparison table but earlier in the guide is a step by step walk though discussing the features to help you decide what you need.
Tradebox’s guide will help you select the best package to suit your needs as well as guidance on how to configure Sage, set up bank accounts and suppliers and of course assist you to import your products into Sage.
Tradebox are the authors of Finance Manager which is designed to rapidly download online sales from marketplaces and websites and create entries in Sage Accounts. Once set up Finance Manager will run your accounts and keep Sage updated for you at the click of a button.
If you need to buy either Sage or Tradebox Finance Manager you’ll find a 10% discount Voucher in the back of the Tamebay eBay & Ecommerce Tools & Services Guide.
