License price update and ending sales of lifetime licenses

Lifetime License

Unlike “perpetual” licenses sold by other companies, our lifetime licenses include the right to receive future updates indefinitely. It is difficult to predict the future, but we would like to develop and support EmEditor for a long time. Our family and employees depend on the sales of EmEditor, which need to last for future generations. Therefore, we will end sales of lifetime licenses on August 28th, 2024. We will not sell lifetime licenses after August 28th, 2024. If you plan to use EmEditor Professional for a long time, you could save on future costs by purchasing lifetime licenses now. We will also raise the price of a lifetime license on August 30th, 2023 from the current $260 to $380 for a single license. The volume lifetime license prices will also be adjusted accordingly.

Annual Subscription

We will raise the price after the first year from the current 50% of the first year price to 75% on August 28th, 2024. If you have subscription licenses, you can renew your subscription at the current price before August 28th, 2024 without changing the expiration date. If you have subscribed to licenses through our website, you may purchase a single-year renewal if your previous purchase was made more than 30 days ago. If you would like to purchase multi-year renewals, please contact us and we will send you a link to do so. If you purchased a subscription through a reseller, please contact your reseller to purchase multi-year renewals.

We will continue development of EmEditor and providing support to our customers.

License price update

We have not changed the price of an annual subscription since we started annual subscription licensing. However, our expense cost continues to grow, and we need to adjust the price so that we can continue development and providing services to our customers. Therefore, we are going to increase the price of licenses. Taking effect on August 1, 2022, we are changing the first year price of an annual subscription license from US$39.99 to US$40.00, and a lifetime license from US$252 to US$260. The volume license prices will also be adjusted accordingly.

We will continue development of EmEditor and providing support to our customers.
