Volume discounts for multiple license purchasers and resellers
Each individual FDSE license costs $40. A 50% discount is offered for qualified bulk purchases subject to these requirements:
Purchases must be for 10 or more licenses.
Payments must be made via mailed check or Paypal payment.
If you are a value-added-reseller*, you must provide all basic end-user support.
If you are a value-added-reseller, the end-user price must exceed $40 per license. Resellers are not allowed to compete with core sales.
Please contact Fluid Dynamics if you would like to discuss other bulk licensing or co-branding options.
* Value-Added Resale - Policy
FDSE is not meant to be resold by itself. If somebody wants the purchase a normal license to the engine, then the xav.com web site is the only place they should visit.
However, in a variety of cases, FDSE is provided to a customer along with associate services from a third party, like customization or hosting services. It makes sense to the customer to pay a single bill to the third party. These third parties providing services thus act as value-added resellers of FDSE, and if they sell in sufficient volume and meet the other criteria above, then they can receive the bulk discount to reflect our savings in overhead.
