  • do i pay twice for brand free?

    if i already paid for brand free on 3.8, do i have to pay again for 4.0?

    the payment page gives an option to buy it, but i already have this, right?

    i just renewed my license 3 weeks ago, do i have to pay the full price for 4.0?

    how much will it cost me for the full suite and when is it ready to download?

    can i have you guys do the upgrade to the full suite, if i have a few add-ons?

    thanks!

      If you are upgrading, your branding free option goes with that upgrade. If you are purchasing a new license and want it brand free, you would need a new branding free option, same as before.

            Upgrading uprades you current licenses to 4.0. If you purchase a new license, things like branding free would need to be re-purchased.

                Why can't the user transfer the branding free license to the new product?

                      We've never allowed branding free transfers.


                      You can upgrade by going to http://www.vbulletin.com/order and clicking on the Customer Login link.

                          You qualify for the reduced fee to upgrade to either the Vb4 suite or VB4 Forums only.
                          You're worse off than me, i renewed in September.

                          Allegedly the VB4 Suite Or Forums will be available in Q4 of 2009, so, you get to pay twice for not being able to download the software before the cheaper price expires

                            Now this is extremely disappointing and puts every license holder who has a branding free license against the wall. It's challenging enough that our licenses went from a value of a few hundred dollars to a zero market value in one day - but I guess this was the obvious market strategy. For some of my forums, the amount of time it may take to "upgrade" makes it prohibitive and using 3.x forums without vulnerabilities serves the purpose as a forum very well. But for these boards it's either pay $190 now or $175 later or lose everything, including the branding free license, the moment a new vulnerability is discovered and the 3.x forum will sit prone to attack.

                            I've been a customer since the dawn of time for vBulletin. Thanks for the clarification as I was under the impression buying a second license could have been a viable option. I'll consider myself served and will have to figure it out during this short period. Ironic that the presale ends Halloween night.

                              From the day we started offering brand free licenses, we've never allowed the transfer from one license to another.
