  • License Question

    Hi,
    I'm in the process of purchasing a forum site, the owner is selling the site with an owned vb license. He have provided me the customer number, which I have sumitted a ticket via sales for license validation. Is this correct? Also I saw somewhere on this forum about transferring the license, what are the steps to take on this? Once the license is validated, should I go ahead and pay him than transfer the vb licnese? or should I have all license related tasks finsihed before paying? Thank you.

    I'd be very very careful about buying a used vBulletin license. There has been instances where the license was valid, but then the original purchaser did a chargeback, thereby invalidating the license, and the person who bought it used ended up with nothing while the original purchaser ended up with money.

      Thanks, is it safer if this owned license has already been renewed? He mention that the license has been renewed and this is the second year, can the orginial owner still be able to do the chargeback and invalid the license?

        So as long as he paid with a credit card at one point or another, he's still eligible to do a chargeback.

          The bottom line is that you take a chance and assume all risks when you purchase a license second hand.
