All Purchases Support Indie Open Source

Beekeeper Studio is developed by a small team. We don’t have big-shot venture capital investors, we’re not backed by a big company, and we’re not independently wealthy. Our business model is to make good software and sell it for a fair price.

Alongside the main Beekeeper Studio app we also publish an open source community edition to help make databases more accessible for everyone. Providing the community edition negatively impacts our revenue, but good software should be available to everyone, not just those with money.

By purchasing Beekeeper Studio, you are not only investing in your own productivity – you are supporting our continued investment in Beekeeper Studio, and also the development of the open source Community Edition. That’s called a win-win-win.

How Perpetual Licenses Work

Pay for 12 months of Beekeeper Studio and get lifetime access to any version of Beekeeper Studio released within your subscription period.

For example:

If you pay for a 12 month subscription on March 10, 2021 you get a perpetual license to use any version of Beekeeper Studio released before March 10 2022.

Enterprise Swag Pack

If you subscribe to the enterprise plan, email us at support@beekeeperstudio.io with your desired t-shirt sizes. If you paid for 20 licenses, you will receive 20 t-shirts and 20 sticker packs, plus one extra to give to whoever you like 😁.

Beekeeper Studio vs Beekeeper Studio Community Edition

  • Beekeeper Studio - The full-featured version of Beekeeper Studio available on this website. Perfect for businesses and professionals. This edition contains every app feature and comes with a business-friendly commercial license.

  • Community Edition - A limited version of Beekeeper Studio that supports fewer databases and has fewer features. It is open source, and available from GitHub. This edition is perfect for students or others who are not using databases professionally. The community edition is published with a GPLv3 license.

Upgrading From The Community Edition

If you buy and use Beekeeper Studio after using the community edition, all your data will automatically transfer, no manual work is required.

The one exception is if you were using the Linux snap version of community edition. You will need to copy your Beekeeper configuration directory from the isolated snap directory to your ~/.config directory

If you cancel your subscription

You can continue to use the software forver, but you will only be able to use versions of Beekeeper Studio released within your subscription period.

Volume Discounts

The more licenses you buy, the cheaper each individual license becomes.

  • 5+ Licenses - 20% discount (excluding Enterprise licenses)
  • 50+ Enterprise Licenses - contact us

Multiple Computers

Some licenses are limited to a set number of devices. You must not use the software on more devices than your license allows.

Unlimited-device licenses are issued to people, not machines. Licenses are not tied to specific computers or operating systems. As a license key holder you can use the same license key across multiple computers for which you are the primary user.

For multi-user licenses, so long as the total number of people using Beekeeper Studio is fewer than or equal to your subscription seat count, you’re good to go.

Using A Personal License At Work

If you buy a license for yourself you are free to use it however you wish. You can use it at work, home, or at your grandma’s house.

Using A Business License At Home

You should not use a license purchased for you by your employer at home, except when using a work computer and working remotely. The license is owned by the business and shouldn’t be shared with other companies or individuals.

Managing Licenses

When you buy a license you are provided with a license key. Give this license key to the app users, up to the maximum number of people indicated in your subscription.

It is your responsibility to ensure that the number of individuals using the license is less than or equal to your subscription seat count.

You do not need to track the number of devices the license key is used on, only the maximum number of individuals using the key.

Refunds

If you are not satisfied with Beekeeper Studio within 30 days of purchase, contact us for a full refund.

Unlimited User License

If you are an organization looking to purchase a license to be used by an unlimited number of users, please contact us.

Sharing License Keys

Sharing license keys with other individuals or organizations is not allowed.

Modifying License Terms

If you are purchasing 50 licenses or more, please contact us to discuss reasonable changes.

Paying With An Invoice

An annual emailed invoice with NET payment terms is available for customers purchasing 50 licenses or more. contact us to set this up, and for ACH instructions.

Late Payments

Sometimes payments get missed by mistake, no big deal. We wont immediately deactivate your license key on a missed payment, and will contact you to attempt to resolve the matter.

If we cannot reach you or resolve the issue for 14 days then your subscription will end and your license key will be disabled.

Disputing A Charge

Sometimes a charge is disputed. Typically this is due to turnover or a business not recognizing an infrequent charge. Please contact us if you have any concerns or questions.

If you wish to resubscribe after disputing a charge, we ask that you acknowledge your error in disputing the charge and pay any fees incurred by the dispute.

Resellers

Resellers are welcome. You can easily create multiple subscriptions (one for each customer) in the license management portal.

No More One Off Purchases

We used to offer one-time purchases for Beekeeper Studio, we no longer do (as of Jan 2023). A subscription reflects the continued benefit you receive from the product as we improve it, and allows us to continually invest in making Beekeeper Studio better.

As an indie software studio, subscriptions are a more sustainable business model as the recurring revenue allow us to better plan, and to keep supporting the software far into the future (which is good for you too).

Security and Compliance Documentation

Customers purchasing over 50 licenses should contact us with reasonable requests for documentation.

Privacy and Information Usage

Beekeeper Studio runs entirely on end-user computers and so we never have any access to your data or settings.

Remote Data Collection

  1. Beekeeper Studio occasionally contacts our servers to check for software updates.

  2. Beekeeper Studio will re-validate your license occasionally by contacting our servers.

  3. If an error occurs, you may be asked if you wish to submit the error to us for triage.

  4. You may be asked to consent to the collection of anonymous application usage information. This is opt-in and totally optional.

We do not collect personal information as part of these processes. Any time we collect personal information we will ask for your explicit consent.
