WinEdt Registration

The program can be registered for individual or multi-user use. Below you will find the Tables of available licenses, together with their description and cost. If you'll be using credit card, please read On-line purchasing with credit cards before proceeding.

    NOTE: VAT or local taxes may apply for credit-card orders from certain countries, states, or provinces!

For other methods of payment or questions about licensing, please contact orders@winedt.com with the details of your license requirement and your preferred method of payment. We offer a wide range of payment options: PayPal, Purchase Orders, cheques in many foreign currencies, money orders, direct bank deposits (POs and payment by bank transfer carry an added fee). We strive to answer e-mail inquiries in a timely fashion. Note that, except for subscriptions, licenses are one-off purchases; they do not expire but are non-transferable and non-convertible.


Before you buy a License...

WinEdt may be used for an evaluation period of 31 days. Any further use requires a license, obtained through the Registration Procedure. You are strongly advised to take full advantage of the generous (31+ days) free trial period and be sure that you actually want to use/keep WinEdt: buying a license won't make any unresolved "problems" that you may have with the trial copy go away. The unregistered trial copy is fully functional!

IMPORTANT: This being explained WinEdt License purchases are non-refundable. ALL SALES ARE FINAL!

Should you decide to register, you'll receive your registration data by email. You then enter this data - exactly as given - in your copy of the program, at the Register Dialog, which is located under the Help Menu: Register WinEdt...

Your copy of the program becomes licensed after you enter your data in the Register Dialog and press OK as prompted.

N.B. You don't have to reinstall WinEdt (you can keep the copy that you have tried and possibly customized during the trial period). Entering the Registration Data will suppress any registration reminders (if your registration is overdue); it will also remove the text, "Unregistered Version", from WinEdt's Caption.

WinEdt Web Store and License Tables

The Web Store is hosted by Digital River's MyCommerce/ShareIt! platform. Use the links below for immediate credit card submission and processing. Note that MyCommerce/ShareIt! is obliged to collect VAT from EU customers (unless VAT exempt, in which case use the box provided on the order form to enter your VAT ID). Local taxes may apply for US customers and also for others globally, in countries where Digital River is obliged to collect sales tax and remit it to the proper local authority. If you are tax exempt place the order and then send your certificate to MyCommerce Client Services, quoting your order number; they will refund the tax portion of your order. For non-credit card payment, contact us at orders@winedt.com. Third-party buyers: please contact us after having placed your order with the actual end-user details.

(a) Personal license: a personal license is issued in the name of the person using the program, for single, individual use only. A personal license entitles the individual to use WinEdt on any computer available to him/her, provided that the program is not used by anyone else with access to these machines. Cost depends on the category, as follows:

License description Educational Business/Govt Student
Personal License US $60 US $100 US $40

The educational rate is applicable to school/university personnel as well as to users not so affiliated but who will use the program for private purposes. The Business/govt rate is required if you are using WinEdt for profitable enterprize or in affiliation with a commercial institution or government agency. Students must use the "Company" field on the order form to specify their educational institution or university, together with student ID number.

NOTE: A personal license never expires (it does not have to be renewed on a yearly basis). It entitles the user to free upgrades for up to (a very generous) five years from its purchase. After that period an upgrade fee applies.

IMPORTANT: Users that can afford it are strongly encouraged to pay an upgrade fee for all major new releases of the program. Such contributions go a long way in helping to cover the ever increasing costs associated with WinEdt's development and maintenance: they are essential to keep this project alive!

(b) Personal License Upgrade: only for registered individuals of an earlier version of the program upgrading to the latest version. You should include your current registration code at the Company field on the order form:

License description Educational Business/Govt Student
Personal License Upgrade US $30 US $50 US $20

(c) Subscription: a subscription license is for multi-user use and allows the application of the license among x-number of users on-site as well as distribution of the same registration data to members of your organization/ research group/ course, etc., for off-site use. This is a per annum license, renewable on a yearly basis. The premium is based on category (educational or business/government) and the estimated number of potential users, as follows:

License description Educational Business/Govt
1 Year Subscription up to 10 users US $150 US $250
1 Year Subscription up to 25 users US $250 US $350
1 Year Subscription up to 50 users US $350 US $500
1 Year Subscription up to 100 users US $500 US $750
1 Year Subscription up to 500 users US $1200 US $1600

For more than 500 users contact us at orders@winedt.com.

A Subscription License carries an annual expiry date and it is up to the institution/ contact person to renew it. The actual users would obtain their [renewed] code from their institution and enter it in WinEdt's registration dialog in order to renew the license for their copy of WinEdt. We leave it to the discretion of the institution to distribute the license quota to eligible members. Also we prefer to deal only with one person (the administrator) and would expect that that administrator be the one to whom any end-user's queries about the program be addressed...


On-line purchase with credit card

If you click on any license price in the Tables above you get connected to the appropriate secure on-line order page at WinEdt's Web Store, hosted by Digital River's MyCommerce/ShareIt!, for immediate credit card submission and processing. The order page is a simple form, asking only for basic information. We, the WinEdt Team, need some more:

  • If you are 3rd-party buyer: please send an e-mail to orders@winedt.com with details of end-user name.
  • If you are upgrading: please use the "Company" field to specify your old code.

After your order is verified you will receive an automated e-mail notification from MyCommerce/ShareIt! with your invoice attached. We, too, get a notification, with the details of your order (but not your credit card information: Digital River is the credit card processor). We will respond as promptly as possible by e-mailing the registration data directly to you. Please be patient: we are not automated at the WinEdt HQ and sometimes there are internet interruptions; also, there may be time-zone differences; etc. If you order more than one license we will contact you by e-mail about the names in which each license is to be registered. Please make sure that you include a valid e-mail reply address (or we may have a hard time reaching you). If, for some odd reason, you have not received your code within 3 days, please contact us. Include your order number and an alternative method of contacting you.

About WinEdt Dialog


Licensing Agreement

The use of WinEdt is subject to a simple (no-nonsense) Licensing Agreement:

WinEdt is distributed as try-before-you-buy software. The program may be used for an evaluation period of 31 days. Any further use requires a license obtained through the Registration Procedure.

Purchasing a license for WinEdt (i.e., registering) entitles the licensee to use the program according to specific conditions. A personal license is for single use only, entitling the named individual to use WinEdt on any and all computers available to him/ her, provided that WinEdt is not used by others with access to these machines. Personal licenses do not have an expiration date and do not have to be renewed on a yearly basis. Organizations wanting multi-user access should order a Subscription License, which is renewable annually. WinEdt licenses are not transferable and cannot be handed over to another individual or organization even if the original license holder no longer uses this software.

Holders of a personal license are eligible for free upgrades to newer releases of the program for 5 years from the purchase of their license. It is the responsibility of the license holder to save their registration key for future use. Due to tightening privacy laws we may not be able to verify and restore lost registration keys more than two years after the purchase. The availability of older versions of WinEdt and our upgrading policies are subject to change at the discretion of WinEdt Team.

Copying/duplicating this software is prohibited, except for purposes of backup and/or archiving. This software cannot be sold without written authorization from the author. You may not decompile, disassemble, reverse engineer or modify this software in any way.

The trial version of WinEdt is fully functional and is not crippled in any way. Note that some commands make sense only in certain contexts. For your convenience such commands are automatically disabled when they cannot be applied. Purchasing a license will not change this!

Once the trial period has elapsed, WinEdt will begin issuing warning messages reminding you that registration is overdue. While such warnings won't cause any damage to your documents they will prove rather annoying and distracting. If you are using WinEdt for serious work you are advised to arrange the registration prior to the end of your trial period.


Disclaimer

This software is provided as it is, and you, its user, assume all risks when using it.


Privacy Statement

The information collected by the WinEdt Team in the process of registration is private and confidential; it is not and will not be made available to any other individual or organization. A database of registered users is kept for the purpose of identifying legitimate upgrade and support requests. We do not send any non-solicited messages (spams) including but not limited to any notifications regarding the availability of new versions of WinEdt and/ or companion tools. The Mailing List and WinEdt's Home Page are the places where interested users can obtain any such information.
