CartoType is purchased for a subscription with a minimum commitment of one year, payable in advance. The subscription gives you the right to use CartoType to develop a single application, and ship an unlimited number of units, and to have continuous access to all upgrades as well as ongoing technical support.
When the subscription period expires, you can continue to use your currently licensed version of CartoType as long as you need without further payment. You can purchase a new subscription at any time to receive a further year’s support and access to new versions and new features. However, there is a discount of 25% for renewal within two months of the previous expiry date, maintaining the anniversary of the expiry date.
All licenses now include graphics acceleration for platforms on which it is available (all standard platforms except .NET).
Prices are in British pounds (GBP). Our costs are in GBP, and it makes most sense to price our wares in that currency. You can pay us by bank transfer (details are on all invoices) by specifying that the payment is to be denominated in GBP; or we will be happy to do the conversion for you at current rates, and quote a price in your currency.
