SoftMeter Pricing

Comparison of the Free vs Pro editions of SoftMeter product analytics

  Free edition Pro subscription Pro perpetual Source code license
Who is it for?
Opensource developers    
Indie developers    
Software companies    
Companies with multiple software titles    
Companies who want complete control over the used code      
Companies who want to statically compile the source code into their software instead of dynamically linking to a library. Having the SoftMeter source code as part of your source code can also reduce the declarations for Encryption Export Regulations in case they are needed for your software. This means that you will probably not need an extra declaration for SoftMeter and you are covered by the Export declaration for your software.

Notes

  • Updating to new SoftMeter releases: In most cases, there are no API changes so the update is a simple replacement of the SoftMeter library file in your project files.
  • The activation of the perpetual Pro license is done with a PIN code that you will use when calling the library.
  • The activation of the Pro subscription is done via our license servers.
    You will get a subscription ID to enable your PRO license when calling the library.
    At the computers of your end-users, your PRO subscription will be activated typically in 24 hours.
    When ordering the Pro subscription you must specify your Google Analytics account number (the 'xxxxxx' part described below).
  • Format of Google Analytics property ID:
    UA-xxxxxx-y is the complete Google Analytics property ID.
    xxxxxx is the Google Analytics account number. The license covers this number and all Properties beneath it.
    y is the Google Analytics Property number (you can have up to 20 properties under one account).
