Reasons To Purchase Ultimate Edition

The simplest reason is that Ultimate Edition contains more features than the community edition. If you need the extra features, you should buy it!

On a more personal level, Beekeeper Studio is developed by one person. I don’t have big-shot venture capital investors, I’m not backed by a big company, and I’m not independently wealthy. By purchasing a license you directly support me and make it possible for me to keep improving Beekeeper Studio. Thank you.

I’m careful to strike a balance between the community and ultimate editions of the product. I’m on a mission to make databases more accessible for everyone, but I also need money to support this mission. Your purchase helps. If you ever think I’ve gotten the balance wrong, or have ideas on how to improve the product, please let me know!

Upgrading from Community to Ultimate

If you buy and use the ultimate edition after using the community edition, everything should ‘just work’, and you will see all of your connections and queries in Ultimate edition, the same as you saw them in community.

The one exception is if you were using the Snapcraft version of community edition.

20% Discount For Automated Renewals

When purchasing your license you can choose to enable auto renew. This enrolls you into an annual subscription. By subscribing, you will get a 20% discount for years 2+, so long as you maintain an active subscription.

Subscriptions also allow you to increase the number of seats on your license while maintaining the existing 20% renewal discount.

Subscribing ensures you maintain access to future software updates, customer support, and Team Workspaces without having to manually buy a new one-off license in a year’s time.

License Expiration

All license purchases provide a perpetual fallback license. This means you make a one-time payment, and can use your version of Beekeeper Studio forever, with no further payments.

New Feature Releases & Customer Support

Licenses come with 1 year of software updates and customer support.

If you wish to receive new software features released after 1 year you must renew your license in the license management portal. Good news: You will get a 20% discount.

For example if you purchased a license on May 1st 2021 you can upgrade to any version released before May 1st 2022.

Multiple Computers

License keys are issued to people, and 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 business users, so long as the aggregate number of people using Beekeeper Studio is less than or equal to your subscription seat count, you’re good to go. Again, it doesn’t matter how many devices are used.

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 your employees, 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.

Volume Discounts

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