How to Buy
Prism for groups
Prism group subscription license
Science is collaborative by nature, and often a Prism group license is the best option in an academic or corporate setting. If your students or colleagues wish to use Prism - to work on your projects or their own - you can save money by purchasing Prism together under a group license.
A Prism group license is an annual subscription license that allows you to activate Prism on a set number of computers, with options starting at 2 seats and scalable to thousands. Your subscription comes with licenses for both Windows and Mac. You distribute Prism to users in your group at your discretion. Any Prism upgrades released during the term of your subscription are included free of charge.
When you purchase a subscription license, we set up an online account for you to manage your license. You will be able to authorize users, distribute the software, monitor your usage and purchase additional seats. You can choose to distribute Prism for your users to install on their own, or for larger groups, allow your IT staff to deploy Prism using conventional IT tools.
We understand that you'll replace computers from time to time and that lab members come and go, so we make it easy to transfer Prism to a new computer or new group member. If someone leaves your group (or installs Prism without your permission), or if you need to replace a computer, you can sign in to your account to deactivate that Prism seat and reissue to a new user or computer.

The tables above show the pricing at various quantity tiers, but you can purchase any number of seats from 2 up. You can easily add seats at any increment during your annual term to accommodate a growing group. We simply prorate the cost for the remaining time in your current annual term at the time that you want to expand the license. If your group grows to reach the next pricing tier, your add-on order will reflect that new pricing tier's volume price break. This add-on ability allows you to start low and increase your license during the annual term if needed, especially if you're not quite sure how many computers on which you need the software now. There are additional discounts at higher tiers. Inquire for details.

Prism for one user
Personal Subscription License
A Prism annual subscription license is typically the best option for purchasing Prism for just one person. A subscription license includes all upgrades and works for both Windows and Mac. You can activate your subscription on up to two computers (one work and one home) that you alone will use. Keep in mind that a personal license may not be shared with any other person. If your students, colleagues or labmates wish to use Prism, you should review the group license options above and purchase a license to cover your needs.

Please note that at this time we accept only Visa, MasterCard or PayPal for personal subscription license purchases. We do not accept checks, bank wires, any other type of credit card, or institutional purchase orders for personal subscription licenses. To qualify for academic pricing, you must have a primary appointment at a degree-granting institution or nonprofit registered charity and plan to use Prism exclusively for academic research. All prices in US dollars.
Personal Perpetual License
If you prefer to purchase a license for a fixed version without an annual fee, choose a perpetual license. Pay a one-time fee to purchase Prism 7. Upgrades are not included and may be purchased for an additional fee. Your license does not expire, but it is not a "lifetime" license. Keep in mind that Prism 7 may not be compatible with future operating systems and upgrades may be required to continue using Prism. That is why we recommend against this option.
If you purchase multiple perpetual licenses on a single order, you will receive a volume discount. Please note that this option is not a true group license. This is simply a bulk purchase of individual licenses that must be managed and installed individually. The online account management, distribution and deactivation tools available for annual group licenses are not an option when purchasing individual perpetual licenses. We strongly recommend that groups take advantage of the cost savings and simplified management of our annual group licenses.
Each Prism user needs their own license.
|Prism 7||Pricing||Prism 7 academic||Pricing|

You may purchase one license at upgrade pricing for each Prism version 5 or Prism version 6 perpetual license you own. An upgrade is the full program at a reduced price. You don't have to have Prism on your computer to upgrade - you just need your existing valid serial number. Remember that your upgrade will replace your old license with a Prism 7 license. An upgrade is not an additional license. You may not transfer your old version to another person after you upgrade because the license to your old version is no longer valid. You may purchase an upgrade from Prism 6 to Prism 7 for US$249. Upgrades from Prism 5 to Prism 7 cost US$349. All prices in US dollars.
