Frequently Asked Questions

About the Backpack commercial licenses.

What do I get for my €69 or €399?

By purchasing a license you get legal permission for a commercial project to use Backpack v4.x.x. Your invoice will contain a unique license code and instructions on where to place it. The license can be purchased by the developer, the employer, or the client - we don't care.

How long does this license last?

The Backpack commercial license lasts for ever (like diamonds), for one domain name. If in a few years you need to rewrite everything, you don't need to purchase another license.

Does it cover subdomains?

Yes. This license also covers unlimited subdomains.

Does it cover sublicensing?

No. This payment does not cover inclusion in free/paid packages, multi-tenant software or forks. A special sublicensing agreement is needed for that. Please contact us and we'll tell you more about it.

Does it cover parked domains?

If you're running the exact same app under two or more domains, sure. Just purchase one license, send us an email and we'll add those parked domains. But you know that's bad for your SEO, right? You should probably be using a 301/302 redirect.

Does it cover local/staging/testing environments?

No. That's because you don't need a license code to use Backpack in other environments than produciton. Just go ahead and install it.

Can I buy more licenses at the current price and use them in the future?

Sure. Licenses are for ever. Just write "future project" instead of the domain name. You can change it afterwards with an email.

Can I get a free commercial license?

If you're a non-trivial code contributor on Github, yes, of course. You will not only get free commercial licenses, but you'll become a better developer, interact with awesome people and help the community. Already contributed and got nothing? Very sorry about that, please email us and we'll get that sorted.

How long can I use this current version before you release a new one?

Usually years. Each previous version has been maintained and improved for 2-3 years after launch. The current version, Backpack 4.x, was launched in September 2019, as a front-end rewrite and back-end architecture overhaul. It allows us to keep pushing new features to 4.x, without breaking changes, for many many months, even years. But it's always a good time to purchase Backpack. When we do launch a 5.x version, we'll be good guys about it: we usually have steep discounts for recent purchases, and long-time Backpack users.
