Need unlimited installations (or domains) license

Need unlimited installations (or domains) license

I nearly got sick right now after a huge disappointment. I was installing PowerStore which I bought 6 days ago and was very enthusiastic about getting it to work. I figured it probably worked similar to Webassist’s eCart and since I already used eCart this would be easy for me to figure out. Then I can start using it to offer shopping cart’s to potential clients. It was all great until I found out I bought a Single license....Gosh!. I can run the eCart extension on many websites so I thought the PowerStore worked similarly. I was trying it out to offer it to a potential client but at the price for a single license, my profit margin would be small since I don’t charge much for setting it up. And then if I set it up for any other client and then they backed out, I would be stuck with the extra expense. Goodness Gracious, there are Open Source solutions out there.....Why would you sell us a Single License? I am an individual working from home...can’t you sell people like me the product with an unlimited installations license? I think I’ll end up cancelling it after the trial period.

I'd suggest cancelling before the trial period as that is when you are entitled to your money back... that's if you are allowed a refund on a solution. After the trial period I think you'll find it hard to get your money back. However, you could keep what you've got and use it as a method of learning how to build your own version. I have often paid for solutions, and then constructed my own version once I understood how the solution is built.

you can get a refund within the 15 day trial period.

We do offer discounts on additional licenses of Power Store

the following quote is from the Power Store FAQ page:

  Q: Can I receive a discount if I purchase more than one license?
A: Yes, you can save the most if you buy multiple licenses at once as we offer 10% off two licenses, 20% off three licenses and so on - up to 50% off six or more licenses. Or if you prefer to only buy one license at a time, you can save 10% off when when you buy the second license, 20% off when you buy the third license, and so on - up to 50% off. Please contact Sales in order to receive your discount.

It's still too much money at $399 - 10% at $370 which is what I will be losing from the small amount I wanted to charge in order to be able to build a customer base. I would like to be able to purchase extra licenses for a lot less than the base price.

I also don't have localhost. I'm installing it on a subdomain of my domain for testing purposes. So later on I would be taking it off from there and reinstalling on another website, so I would like that license usage removed from this particular domain and refreshed or renewed so that I can use on the real live site. Is that going to be a problem once I've used the license once? or will you be able to clear it for me so that I can re use it?

And finally, can you tell me why I would be better off using PowerStore over OSCommerce which is open source?

actually, I'll add one more set of questions. Will I be able to get the 50% off if I later on buy 5 more licenses? Does it mean 6 x $399 = $2,394 - 50% - $1197? So just to be very specific, if I already paid $399 will you sell me the next 5 for $798? However, if I purchased it with an offer of 25% off, does that mean I would be able to get the 6 for $897? and once again, will my first purchase be taken into consideration if I later on saw the discount and wanted 5 more licenses?

thank you.

You get an additional 10% off the retail price for each additional license you purchase up to 50%. This cannot be combined with any sales or discounts.

If you purchase in bulk you get the lowest discount off of all of them.

That means if you buy 1 you pay full price. The second you get 10% off that purchase and the third you get 20% off that purchase, but if you buy all three at once you get the 20% off all three. This is a volume discount, so it doesn't work retroactively.

If you buy 1 at full price and then later purchase 5 at once, then you get 50% off the five you purchase but it doesn't effect what you paid for the first one. The only way to get 50% off all of the is to have bought 6 up front.

Once you have purchased 6 or more combined or together you can buy as many as you want in the future one at a time for 50% off.

thanks for answering the last paragraph. Can I get some sort of answer for the other two questions I had written:

I also don't have localhost. I'm installing it on a subdomain of my domain for testing purposes. So later on I would be taking it off from there and reinstalling on another website, so I would like that license usage removed from this particular domain and refreshed or renewed so that I can use on the live site.

I want to be able to customize the look of the store a whole lot. For example I want to add another column to the right and create the links that I want. There's currently only four templates provided which I know I can customize somewhat. I found this page on your site.

Does this apply to PowerStore 4? Or is there an updated set of instructions for customizing version 4?

I have to figure this out as quickly as I can so your answers to these questions would be most helpful. I appreciate your feedback.

Read my thread: showthread.php?t=16199

It talks about how and where to look when using custom templates.
