PrefEdit: Buying licenses

Try before Buy

You can download the application PrefEdit free of charge. This allows you to evaluate the software to see if it suits your needs.

If you like the software and want to keep it, you will have to place an order for the number of usage licenses you require. You will receive the requested number of registrations from the software reseller. Each registration allows you to unlock the software to fully utilize it. Standard registrations for single licenses are per computer, while personal use on an additional second computer is tolerated.

IMPORTANT NOTE: Software packages published on June 1, 2016 or later are required for this registration. You can use the registration with PrefEdit 2.4, PrefEdit 3.6, and PrefEdit 3.7 or later. New licenses for use with Mac OS X 10.5.8 or lower are no longer sold.

Immediate Delivery by Email. No Need to Type Codes.

Immediately after the online shop has completed processing of your order, both the license and the invoice will be sent to the email address you have specified. Delivery by email is necessary as additional step to verify your identity, ensuring full compliance with the requirements around strong customer authentication under Payment Services Directive 2 of the European Union and the European Economic Area. The license comes in form of a registration file which is then loaded into the application to unlock it for unrestricted use. Only a few mouse clicks are needed for product activation, no hassle with “serial numbers“ or similar codes is required. More information…

An entry of registration codes may only be necessary if you need to confirm during an upgrade that you had licensed an older product and that older product still used an old-fashioned key code.

You can select between 40 different currencies and the following payment options:

  • Credit card
  • Wire Transfer / Bank Transfer
  • PayPal® (in selected currencies)
  • Check
  • Online wire transfer and debit cards in selected countries

Our information page has the exact details for each of these payment options.

Cancellation, Withdrawal, Returns, Refunds

You can test and evaluate the software —which is the actual product— thoroughly before placing an order. For this reason we have to assume that an order is binding after you have decided to purchase a usage license and the associated registration.

In compliance with the consumer rights in the European Union, specified by EU Directive 2011/83/EU, you are granted the option for withdrawal of the order in the period between the purchase and the final delivery of the registration data to you. After that data has been provided, however, the right of withdrawal is extinguished, because the registration belongs to a group of products not suitable for return shipment. The software dealer makes you aware of this circumstance by a withdrawal right waiver, and the purchase cannot be completed without confirming that you have received notification of this regulation.

Returning a registration after delivery is therefore not possible. Your rights of cancellation in case of product deficiencies remain unaffected of course.
