Extensions SubscriptionSince vtiger 7.0 there is new license agreement of our extensions.
With subscription you buy also 1 Year support and updates (License is still not Time-limited. You can use your license as long as you want and need). Also if you buy subscription of extension you will gain access for all version of this extension: it means one license is valid for vtiger 5.x, vtiger 6.x as well as vtiger 7.x.
After 1 year you will have 3 options:
- you will renew your subscription with discounted price(see discounted prices for loyal customers)
- you will use your license of extension further but without updates and support
- you will use your license further, but some time later you decide that you need subscription. You will renew your subscription for full price.
Also to be correct to our customers, anyone who bought license of extensions for 5.x or 6.x one year ago also can download 7.x version of extension and use it.
But be careful: using license key twice is still valid:
„This license gives the holder right to install extension on ONE productive vtiger CRM installation and ONE develop vtiger CRM installation for unlimited users. „
Vtiger 7 was published 27. May 2017. To be correct for our customers (because it takes time to convert all extensions to be compatible with vtiger 7) we take one year ago always from 27. May 2017
Some scenarios to better understanding new license agreement:
