• FlippingBook Publisher licensing

FlippingBook Publisher (Professional and Business editions) comes with a perpetual license. That means that you pay a one-time fee, and you can use the software forever. You can use Publisher as often as you want, and make as many publications as you want. You can upload your publications to your own (or clients’) server, without limitations.

To make sure that you use the product that best suits your needs, without paying for things that you don’t use, there are several choices that you can make. In this article, we specify the costs of these options, and explain them briefly. For more detailed information refer to Optimize your FlippingBook Publisher license:

Full pricing plan

Base license

We offer two editions of FlippingBook Publisher: Professional and Business. The edition determines which functionality is available to you. For a detailed overview of all features, see our pricing page https://flippingbook.com/order

Prices for a perpetual license are as follows:

Edition US$ Euro GBP

€599 £499

Renew Support and Updates

When you buy a perpetual license, you get a full year of Support and Updates for free. After the first year, Support and Updates is available as an optional service:

Support and Updates (per year) US$ Euro GBP
Basic (legacy product)

 $199

€149 £129

Professional

$329

€249

£219

Business

$669

€499

£419

To renew through the website, sign in to your account and click the "Renew" button. A pop-up window will show you the available renewal options. You can renew Support and Updates in three ways:

  • Auto-renew: renews your Support and Updates for 1 year, and it will automatically be renewed again upon expiration next year. This also fixates the renewal price, meaning that you are not affected by any price increases.
  • 1 year: no future charges, but (about) ~10% more expensive than Auto-renew.
  • 2 years (15% off): no future charges, 15% cheaper than two renewals for 1 year.

After selecting the desired renewal period you can click on “Checkout” and will be redirected to a payment form to confirm the payment. Instead of checking out immediately, you can also request a quote first. You will receive an email with a link to the quote in PDF format, and a 'Place order' link.

 


 


Unlimited Cloud

With Support and Updates, you can also host up to 3 publications on our FlippingBook Cloud. If you need more publications to be active at the same time, then you can switch to ‘unlimited cloud’. Support and updates are included in this case, you don’t have to buy them separately. Prices per year are as follows:

Support, Updates & Unlimited Cloud (per year) US$ Euro GBP
Basic (legacy product)

 $339

€249 £219

Professional

$590

€449

£399

Business

$1,390

€990

£839

If you switch to Support, Updates & Unlimited Cloud then:

  • We don’t change the expiration date of your Support and Updates. Instead we add Unlimited Cloud to it, and charge you pro rata, based on the remaining time.
  • We deduct any outstanding money that have already paid for Support and Updates.

You can switch to Unlimited Cloud in your online account by pressing the button ‘Get Unlimited Cloud’. As said, by default this does not renew your current contract. Your current expiry date remains the same. However:

  • If the remaining time on your contract is less than 3 months, then you will see a 'recommended' option to renew for a full year, in addition to the upgrade to Unlimited Cloud.
  • If the support contract is already expired or if the cost for the upgrade is less than $10 (typically because just a few days remain), then a renewal for a full year is required.
  • If the remaining time on your existing support contract is more than 3 months, but you want to renew anyway, then you can renew as a separate transaction after upgrading. 

 


 


Additional users

If you want to use the software on more computers than your current license allows, then you can buy additional users at any time. The prices for additional users are as follows:

 Additional User US$ Euro GBP
Professional additional user

 $399

€299 £299
Business additional user

$599

€499 £449

To buy additional users, please contact us. Leave your license email address and the amount of extra users that you need. We will be happy to provide you with a quote.

If you use our ‘Support and Updates’ or ‘Support, Updates & Unlimited Cloud’ services, then additional users will also get to enjoy these benefits. However, on the next renewal, a surcharge will be added per additional user.

Difference in extra services

(*)

(*) (*)

(*) If you use services like Support, Updates (& Unlimited Cloud), then an upgrade fee applies as well. This is done 'pro rata' for the remaining service time. The first year of Support and Upgrades is free, so we charge no upgrade fee.

 


 


Changing billing information

If you use the Auto-renew option for 'Support and Updates' or 'Support, Updates & Unlimited Cloud', then we will automatically charge you for another year when these services are about to expire (assuming that you pay by credit card). It is of course possible that your credit card details change in the meantime. In that case, you can update them in your online account by clicking the button 'Update Payment Method'. If you don't pay with credit card, then we will send you a message that the next payment is due with details on how to pay before the auto-renewal is due. 

 


 


Review billing history

All payments that you have made to us are stored in your online account. To review them or download the invoice, log in, and click on the ‘View billing history’ link.

 


 


When I bought my license, it included extra workstations. How does it affect renewals?

Currently, FlippingBook Publisher licenses come with a single workstation included. You can buy additional workstations as needed, offering optimal flexibility. But in the past, FlippingBook Publisher was sold in packages with a preset number of workstations included. For example, you may have bought "FlippingBook Publisher Business 3 workstation", and you could install and use it on three computers at the same time. In that case, when you renew your Support, Updates (and Unlimited cloud, if applicable), the two 'extra' workstations do NOT count as additional workstations and will not affect your renewal fee. The same is true if you upgrade to a higher edition of FlippingBook Publisher. But if you buy more extra workstations, then these will be counted for future upgrades and renewals.
