How to buy a license for Papers2
If you like Papers2 a lot and wish to continue using it after the 30 day trial, we ask you to support our work and buy a license.
Download Papers2 from our Website if you haven't done so and give it a good try (remember, you have 30 days to decide before you need to buy a license).
When you're ready to buy a license, go to Purchase Papers License... from the Purchase menu on Papers for Mac.
- If you are using Papers for Windows, go to Purchase Papers from the Help menu.
Enter your personal details if Papers hasn't done this already for you, make sure they're correct and choose the number of copies you wish to buy (remember, a single user license allows you to activate Papers on up to 3 of your personal Macs or PCs).
Next click the Buy now button and you will be transferred to Paypal for the final checkout.
Once you have paid you will receive both an invoice and a serial number by email.

You can buy a license directly from within Papers by visiting the built-in Papers store.
Alternatively we can handle purchase orders for multi-user licenses ourselves, for which we would need the following information:
- the exact number and type of licenses you wish to purchase
- a billing address
- the VAT ID of your institute (if based within the EU only)
If you provide us with the above we can send you a quote on the basis of which you can generate the purchase order. Alternatively you can pay by creditcard (the fastest route), we can send you a payment link if you wish to do so.
Note that you don't need a paypal account, Paypal will let you
do a guest creditcard checkout as described here:
We can handle purchase orders for multi-user (3 or more copies) licenses ourselves, see the section on volume licenses on what we would need. Single user licenses can only be bought through Paypal at the moment.
If you cannot use Papers or are ordering on behalf of someone else you can order licenses either via purchase order (3 or more copies, see section on volume licenses). Or if you send us your complete billing address (+ institutional VAT ID if applicable) we can send you a creditcard payment request. Once you have paid we can then issue a Papers serial number.
We only sell Papers2 licenses, however if you buy a Papers2 license we are more than happy to send you a complimentary license for Papers1 that you can use. If you send us your complete billing address (+ institutional VAT ID if applicable) we can send you a payment request. Once you have paid we can then issue a Papers1 serial number.
Yes, you can use your serial number to activate up to 3 of your personal Macs or PCs.
Currently this is not possible. We are investigating this route, but this will still take a while as the Mac App store poses too many restrictions at the moment and would require us to remove features from the application.
