PaperCut M&S: the FAQs
How much does M&S cost?
M&S costs a percentage of your license value – and the percentage depends on how much M&S you buy. Basically, the longer you get M&S for, the less you pay per year. You can also purchase M&S for up to five years in advance to convert the annual fee into something more like a capital fee – if that helps with approval processes.
What do I receive when I purchase M&S?
Your digitally-signed license file will be stamped with the upgrade assurance expiration date. Once installed, this date is visible on the application's About page. This license file will automatically work with all future versions released during the purchased period, and you can upgrade any time with the standard 'install over the top' upgrade procedure.
Is M&S just about getting quicker access to tech support?
You do get priority access to support, but you also get access to software upgrades. In a constantly changing environment, having the latest version of PaperCut is highly recommended – not just for features, but for timely security enhancements as well. For example, only versions 17.2.1 and later support customer GDPR obligations.
How can I find out if my M&S is current/active?
Your M&S expiration date is listed under the license details, which can be found in the application's About page.
