I purchased Designer by itself. What is the cheapest/best way to purchase Photo and Publisher without buying the bundle?


Recommended Posts

Hi, 

I purchased Designer a few months ago because I had a use case for it and not the other two products.
Now I have a use case for Publisher and I'm currently in trial mode for the V2 Suite. I'm sure I could find a use for Photo too but I'm not really a photo editor. 

What is the best way to purchase the other two products to make it equal to the bundle price for individuals?

Thanks.

Welcome to the Serif Affinity forums.

The "bundle" you refer to, I suppose, is the Universal license. You can't simply purchase Publisher and Photo and get an equivalent of that, because the Universal license covers 3 operating system families (Windows, macOS, and iPadOS), but any individual product license covers only one OS family. So, for the price of the Universal license you are actually getting 9 products: Designer on 3 OSes, Publisher on 3 OSes, and Photo on 3 OSes. And to get the equivalent of that you would have to buy 2 more Designer licenses, 3 Publisher licenses, and 3 Photo licenses.

It would be much less expensive to simply forget that you had purchased Designer by itself, and simply buy the Universal license now.

Of course, maybe the other OSes are not relevant to you today. But maybe they will be, one day, before V3 comes out.

If you are going to make a purchase, though, it might pay to wait for the expected Black Friday sale, which will get you a discount.

That makes sense. 

My use case is limited to Windows so a possible Black Friday sale for the Universal license might be best for me.
I'll keep an eye out on the main sight for any Black Friday announcements.

Thanks for the info. I appreciate it.
