Paying these prices entitles you to:
Once you have paid your initial purchase fee and received an email receipt for it, you can request a license key to convert your 60-day evaluation version of ACCOUNTS to the full unrestricted version, through the program's Evaluation and Licensing window. (Not required for the Remote Database Version.) Any data you have entered up to that point will be unaffected by this process.
Good to Know
Pay for your initial purchase by using a credit card via PayPal.
To continue receiving support and upgrades to the paid full
ACCOUNTS versions after the first year,
an annual renewal payment is required. *
For the Remote Database Version, annual renewal payments are required to keep using the program.
The Annual Renewal prices are listed in the table above, under "Annual Renewals".
Pay for your Annual Renewal by using a credit card via PayPal.
Once you have paid your Annual Renewal fee for the full version and received an email receipt for it, you need to request an updated license key, through the program's Evaluation and Licensing window. (Not required for the Remote Database Version.) This informs the program that it can accept upgrades for another 12 months.
We will contact you annually to invite you to renew your support and upgrades subscription.
You can save on your annual renewal fees by earning referral rewards!
* If you do not pay this renewal fee within six months of your support expiry, you will need to pay another initial purchase fee (twice as much) if you wish to renew your eligibility for support and upgrades.
If you do not choose to renew your support for the program, you can continue using any version except for the Remote Database Version after your support and upgrades expiry date, but you will not be eligible for support or upgrades. However, if you ever need to re-install the program on your computer, or install it on a different computer, the only way that can usually be done is by downloading the currently available version from the program's website. Since that would be an upgrade at that time, an appropriate payment would be required. If you wish to avoid that, your only option is to download a current copy of the installation program from the website before your support and upgrades expiry date, and make sure you have a secure permanent copy of it. We do not retain older versions of the program, and they will never be made available for download.
You can always upgrade from the Standard version to the Local Network or 5 simultaneous user Remote Database version, by paying as follows:
Don't hesitate to contact us if you need help calculating the correct price for this upgrade. These non-standard payment amounts can be paid online, if you wish, through the Custom Payment option on the Payment page.
Effective January 1, 2020, the pricing for only 1 simultaneous user in the Remote Database Version has been eliminated, because we believe that for most users who chose that, the Standard version with the Cloud Storage Service will be a better choice. It has most of the same advantages, enabling safely sharing a database over the Internet, and is much faster. See here for details on switching.
However, for those who want to stay with the Remote Database Version, the following pricing applies for upgrading to the 5 simultaneous user version:
No upgrade or other action is needed on your part after this to make the change to 5 simultaneous users. As soon as we receive and acknowledge your payment, you will be able to have up to 5 users log in to the remote database simultaneously.
Don't hesitate to contact us if you need help calculating the correct price for this upgrade. Any non-standard payment amounts (specifically, the $4 per month in the 3rd bullet point above) can be paid online, if you wish, through the Custom Payment option on the Payment page.
