How do I keep the trial running after 40 days?
Install your purchased license file in the About page to continue to operate without losing your install and configuration.
What if we take longer than 40 days?
We understand that purchase decisions can take a longer than the trial. Don't worry, there's no loss of data as PaperCut keeps running in the background.
How much does it cost?
PaperCut NG pricing is based on the number of users (not servers), and industry you're from. A one off payment with no obligation to upgrade and no annual fees.
I'd like to try but don't want to install it yet in production?
We agree, installing trials on live systems can ring alarm bells! Consider a standalone machine or VM if you're keen to have a quick play. If you're installing on a production system, we recommend setting up in "silent monitoring" mode by ensuring you don't yet set up any limits or quotas.
