Frequently Asked Questions
A perpetual license is a traditional way of purchasing software, meaning you pay for the license upfront so you have the right to use the software in perpetuity. With a subscription license, a customer prepays a user fee, entitling them to use the software only during the subscription term. Quark added a subscription option because it has become a common software licensing model, benefitting both the customer and the vendor. Determining which license model to choose comes down to personal or organizational preference: owning the license with or without extended maintenance and support or having flexibility in terms of budgeting and scalability through a subscription. Another consideration is that a subscription license entitles the user to the latest version of the software plus applicable updates as long as the subscription is active, whereas the lifecycle of a product with a perpetual license will reach an end of life – meaning software updates and support will stop after a certain point.
A perpetual license for a new version of QuarkXPress has an average lifecycle of two years. The subscription license provides access to the latest version of the software plus applicable updates as long as the subscription is active.
