Working in an industry that specializes in hype, I was overwhelmed to find that PPAI and SAGE actually outperform their claims! Dealing with your customer service, full line of products, complete training seminars and technical support… it has been an absolute pleasure at all levels. My partner-membership has been the best investment I have made into my own company. The best by far. Thanks for all you offer and do.

What is the PPAI-SAGE strategic alliance?

The Power of Two alliance brings together two of the strongest organizations in the promotional products industry - PPAI and SAGE. As part of the alliance, SAGE Total Access subscribers will automatically receive a PPAI membership and, in turn, PPAI members will receive a licensed subscription to SAGE Total Access. Whether signing up through PPAI or SAGE, distributors will automatically begin receiving the Power of Two benefits immediately. This partnership provides the comprehensive benefits of PPAI with the cutting-edge technology solutions and business services provided by SAGE.

Why is this important to the promotional products industry?

Distributors now have both membership support and the industry-leading research and business management solution for one low price, backed by two of the leading organizations in the promotional products industry.

Do I have to call SAGE to redeem anything?

No. Distributors with PPAI annual dues of $495 (doing less than $250,000 per year in promotional products sales) no longer have to redeem a voucher in order to subscribe to SAGE services, making it easier for you to receive these combined benefits. If you are a larger distributor, you’ll continue to receive a $495 voucher when you renew your PPAI membership that you can apply as a credit to the purchase of any SAGE services.

Who do I pay, SAGE or PPAI?

As part of this new streamlined process, distributors will receive a single, co-branded invoice for your PPAI membership and SAGE Total Access subscription. This co-branded invoice will come via email from SAGE and will show both your SAGE subscriptions and your PPAI membership, along with your $495 (annual) or $49 (monthly) credit. You will pay SAGE by following the instructions on the invoice.

Can I pay on a monthly plan?

Distributors now have the option of being billed on a monthly or annual basis for their PPAI membership and SAGE Total Access subscription. If you choose to be billed monthly, we’ll automatically and conveniently charge your credit card each month for the monthly price of $49.

I am a SAGE Total Access subscriber but not a PPAI member. What do I do?

No problem. Distributors that are current SAGE Total Access subscribers will receive a PPAI membership automatically! You do not need to do anything to begin utilizing PPAI membership benefits. PPAI will contact you with more information about your membership benefits.

I am a PPAI member but not a SAGE Total Access subscriber. What do I do?

Distributors that are current PPAI members will receive one license of SAGE Total Access automatically! This will give your first user access to SAGE Online, SAGE Web, and SAGE Mobile, SAGE's premier suite of product research, presentation, CRM, order management, and virtual sampling tools. Then you just pay for your additional users ($95/year or $9 per month each) and any other SAGE services that you need.

I still have an unused voucher on my account from the prior program. Can I use it?

Of course! Just contact your SAGE account representative before the voucher expires and we can apply it to any SAGE services. Vouchers expire one year from issuance.

How do I get started?

An easy first step is to go to TrySAGE.com for a test drive! You can learn about all the features and modules available with SAGE products and services. We also offer plenty of training, how-to videos, and even virtual one-on-one meetings. If you ever have questions, you can contact your SAGE account executive.
