Purchase a Commercial PixInsight License

These are the steps to purchase a commercial license of PixInsight:

  1. Make sure you read the important information provided at the bottom of this page. In case you already haven't done so, we encourage you to take a look at our FAQ page.
  2. Make sure that the email account you are going to associate with your license is valid and can receive messages sent from our corporate email server. Please add pixinsight.com to your safe senders list or equivalent resource in your email client application. Also make sure that your email provider does not reject our messages. Please note that your license will be associated with the email address that you specify when you pay your license with PayPal. If you can't receive notifications from us, you won't be able to activate and use your license. You can use our contact form to check your email account with us.

    I can receive email messages from pixinsight.com.
  3. Accept our End User License Agreement.
  4. Perform the online payment of your license with your credit card or PayPal account using our PayPal-based online payment system. The price is 230 Euros for users from non-EU countries. Users from EU member countries must pay their respective VAT rates, that is, the final price for an EU user is 230.00 EUR plus the VAT rate applicable in his or her country. See this page for detailed information on the European legislation that forces us to apply VAT rates this way.
  5. Once you have completed your payment, you will receive two email messages:
    • Our system will email you with detailed download and installation instructions. As a commercial user, you will have a permanent user account on our file servers that will allow you to access our Software Distribution System.
    • PayPal will email you with a receipt for your payment.

Important Information

No Refund Policy — We do not offer a refund policy. Once a copy of our software has been downloaded by a commercial licensee, we accept no return and we offer no refund. We have two main reasons why we don't offer refund:

  • We offer free trial software licenses that you can use to evaluate a fully-functional, full featured trial version of PixInsight on any supported platform.
  • We stand behind our software. We provide support and updates at no additional cost (included with all commercial licenses). When you buy a PixInsight license, you are getting a good piece of software that is backed by its original developers.

Entities (clubs, associations, schools, universities, etc.) — Please do not try to buy a commercial license of PixInsight. This payment interface can only be used by individuals, not by entities.
Licenses purchased by entities will be invalidated.
