💠Frequently Asked Questions💠

Ans: Sage 50cloud (also known as Sage 50c) is primarily a desktop application NOT a cloud-based program. It is the same desktop program as the traditional Sage 50.The “cloud” is in the name because it has several cloud-based add-on features that are not available in traditional Sage 50.

Q2. Do I need to Renew My Sage 50 Cloud License Every Time or Does it Have a Perpetual License like the Traditional Sage 50 Software?

Ans: Sage 50cloud is subscription based – if you don’t renew your subscription you will be able to view your existing data, but you won’t be able to enter anything new.
