Salesforce: Sign up for a free Salesforce Developer account

Objective

This article will quickly guide you through creating your own free Salesforce Developer account.

About free Developer accounts:

  • They only expire if you leave them dormant for 6-12 months.
  • They're generally fully functional Enterprise accounts.
  • Supports both modes: Classic and Lightning.
  • Includes access to the Service Console and Sales Console, in addition to the usual Salesforce applications.
  • Supports two users, so you can test with more than one login at a time, if needed.
  • You can use them to test and display 8x8 phone integrations for Virtual Office, VCC, and ContactNow.

Sign Up

To get your free Salesforce account:

  1. Navigate to to the following link (pops a new tab):
  2. On your signup page, fill in all the blanks with any info you like, except for:
    • Email: This must be your real email address. You'll receive all password resets and other info here.
    • Username: This is your login ID. It should be a fake email address so it doesn't clash with other Salesforce IDs you may already use.
  3. Check the Terms of Use box and click Sign me up.
