Vendors allowing license transfers

Buy and sell, post special offers, group buys, etc. NOT product announcements.

Cherry Audio (home of the new Voltage Modular synths)

Transfers allowed with no fees, no NFR. Just a simple email to support to transfer licenses. :tu:

PAlliance seem to have corrected the NFR limitation and their plug-ins are now open for instant transfer. / Jonas

SonicProjects:

In a nutshell - YES, email them first for permission, then pay a $15 fee. License becomes NFR!

Here's the details:

I thought I'd add this to the list as up until now I was never clear on their policy and there was no reliable info to be found.

I enquired directly to SonicProjects about selling my OP-X Pro II and this was their response which I've copy pasted here for reference:

"The first step is asking us for permission which you did herby and it's ok from our side.

The second step is, once you found a buyer, to send us the personal data (full name and living addres) plus email address of the buyer. The buyer must know that the license becomes an NFR (not for further resale anymore) after the transfer. Also he must make sure before that the plugin works in his system (by checking out the demo version).

There's a small transfer fee of currently $15 which has to be payed before we complete the transfer, which serves to prevent abuse and to cover our administrative work. Once we received the buyer's data we will send a dedicated link to you to pay the fee. Once the fee is paid we'll create a new license and will send this one directly to the new licensee, while your entries are deleted. To complete the transfer you'll finally be obligated to delete your installers and keys and all backups of it."

There should really be a public google doc where we can look up the license transfer conditions of most vendors before buying.

I had to learn the hard way with waves and pianoteq. Learned my lesson, never will buy from companies with ridiculous license transfer policies again.

Surreal Machines don't allow license transfer because of their license file activation system.

I would remain cautious about this as their website still states: "You cannot transfer (...) licenses that were previously transferred to you."

That might be, and caution is a virtue, but i have all my licenses ready for transfer. A bunch of them are previously transferred to me and i have already transferred some of them to others. Let´s hope the matter is resolved. / Jonas

Toontrack

Toontrack allow transfer in a free, easy and fast way.
IMHO one of the best, most customer-friendly companies when it comes to license transfers. They respond quickly and sometimes even on holidays and weekends.

I followed up on this idea and created this thread with a google doc.
