How much does it cost? Glad you ask, as at this moment it does have a cost. You can get the software by
paying 49.99 USD per server monthly or
through the founding in which you will get an IP license per each 300 CAD you donate.
Does it include free installation? If you get the license by the monthly fee, you have right to basic free installation. A basic installation is just installing the software and making sure it routes calls, it does not include rating list configuration.
Will the software be converted to Opensource? Yes, it will, when the funding goal is reached. When that happens, we will release an opensource and we will give one month of transition period if you are using a closed-source release. After that, the licensing server will be disabled.
I did a donation, I have changed the server IP, what should I do? Just drop us some lines stating your donation information, the old IP and the new one.
May I charge using PayPal? Yes, you can use PayPal. Just enable the currency you are going to use in your PayPal account and set up the plugin.
May I accept credit or debit card? Yes, you can. We support Stripe as it is the easiest to setup. Sign up at Stripe website, take note of your public and private keys and set up the plugin.
Does the billing module support muti-currency? Yes, it does. You can have a selling price list in USD and bill a user in MXN. The system will do the conversion in real-time.
