We at Cart2Quote offer you two module purchase methods; ‘one-off’ and ‘subscription’. The license which you receive when purchasing Cart2Quote via these two options differ from one another in small ways. You will find details below which will inform you of everything you need to know about these purchase methods and what they entail. I hope to hereby offer you the ability to make an educated decision regarding which purchase method best suits your requirements.
The ‘one-off’ payment option is our original module purchase method. As the name indicates; this payment option does not require any recurring payments. You will not be recharged after purchasing Cart2Quote Starter, Business, Enterprise or the Developer edition via the ‘one-off’ payment option, and your purchase will include a six, nine or twelve month free update period respectively. In other words: you may update your purchased module free of charge within this period. Thereafter, you will need to purchase a module update if you wish to update your installed module to the latest version. If you are happy with your installed version however, you may continue using this indefinitely and at no cost. You purchased the module, it is yours.
We introduced the ‘subscription’ payment option a few months ago. The best way to understand this payment method is to compare it to a Netflix or Television subscription. You can choose between monthly or yearly payment options and you can update to the latest module version at any time, but if you cancel your subscription then your module license will be deactivated remotely. This payment option does work out to be cheaper than its ‘one-off’ counterpart in the long term and is a big hit among our more permanent customer base.
Both payment methods offer pros and cons. It is up to you to decide which would best suit your requirements and to then base your decision around these terms.
It should be noted that the Cart2Quote Developer edition is not for sale via the subscription payment option. This module edition can only be purchased using the one-off payment option.
Happy decision making,
The Cart2Quote Team.
