Anything License related with LiquidFiles is done at https://license.liquidfiles.com. This is where you can purchase licenses, renew licenses and upgrade licenses to more users.

License Upgrades

You can upgrade your license at any time if you wish to add more users.

When upgrading your license, the way this works is that conceptually you will purchase a new license with the new number of users that you want, and we will refund the value of your existing license. The calculation for the refund is using the formula:

existing_license_cost
--------------------- * months_left_to_renewal = Refund towards new license
         12

for yearly licenses, and:

existing_license_cost
--------------------- * months_left_to_renewal = Refund towards new license
         36

if you have a 3 year license. During the license upgrade this will be automatically calculated for you.

As an example, lets assume that it's the 1st of November 2015, and you have a 20 user yearly license that will expire 1st of January 2016 (2 months away). You wish to upgrade to a 50 user yearly license. The 20 user license cost $199 and the 50 user license cost $499.

During the upgrade, the refund for the remainder of your existing license will be: $199/12*2 = $33. The upgrade cost to 50 users will then be: $499 - $33 = $466. The new license will expire 1 year from today (1st of November 2016 in this example).

A common misconception

It's only ever possible to have 1 license installed at any given time. Every so often we get a support request by someone that had say a 10 user license and purchased another 10 user license and wish to add the license to the system. This is not possible. You cannot add a license to another license. Please use the license upgrade mechanism to upgrade your license to more users.

 

How to Upgrade
