How to Buy
As of May 24, 2019, purchasing of legacy software for Craft 2.x has changed. See options below...
New Purchases of Freeform 1.x
You can continue to purchase Freeform 1.x for Craft 2.x indefinitely. However, the process is a bit more manual now as we transition new purchases away from our own store to the Craft 3 Plugin Store. It essentially requires you purchase a Craft 3 compatible version of Freeform, and then contact us with the license(s) and we'll provide you with a copy of the Craft 2 compatible version.
Please purchase Freeform 2.x (Lite/Pro) via the Craft 3 Plugin Store website and then contact us for a Craft 2.x copy of the plugin.
The Full Details
Please follow the steps below:
- Create a new Craft ID account (if you don't already have one)
- Visit the Craft Plugin Store website to shop for Solspace plugins.
- Click on the plugin, scroll down and click the Buy button to add it to your cart.
- In the Cart page, click the Checkout button and complete your purchase.
- Once completed, visit the Plugins page in your Craft ID account and retrieve your new license(s).
- Contact Solspace Support and provide us the plugin license key(s) and we'll get back to you quickly with the Craft 2.x compatible version of Freeform.
In the future, whenever you're ready to update your site to Craft 3.x, you'll have immediate access to Freeform 2.x for Craft 3.x as well as a valid license for it (within 1 year of purchase), so you won't need to contact us in the future to have the license transferred, etc.
What About Updates?
Since over a year has passed since Craft 3 launch, we are no longer actively developing our Craft 2 plugins. We will continue to make security fixes, and any further updates for Freeform will be visible from the Craft 2 Updates page inside your site control panel.
Upgrading 1.x Lite to Pro
If you wish to switch an existing Freeform Lite 1.x license to Freeform Pro 1.x, the procedure is the same way it has been before (no changes).
Please follow the steps below:
- Visit your Account on the Solspace website.
- Locate your existing Freeform Lite 1.x license in your list of purchases and click the Switch to Freeform Pro Add button next to it to add the upgrade to your account.
- In the Cart page, review your item(s), click the Checkout button and complete your purchase.
- Once completed, you'll see an additional product inside your Account for Freeform Pro. Download a copy of that and use those files to replace the Freeform Lite files currently on your site. No other changes or steps are necessary.
- You'll then see the new Freeform Pro features. Be sure to copy over your new Freeform Pro license key to the settings as well.
If you run into any issues, or the Upgrade add to cart button isn't showing, please contact Solspace Support for assistance.
Transferring 1.x License(s) to Craft 3
When you're ready to upgrade your site to Craft 3.x and you currently have a Freeform 1.x license that needs to be upgraded to Freeform 2.x+ as well, please read below...
For any Craft 2 licenses you'd like to transfer over to Craft 3, please contact us and let us know the following info:
- Your Solspace.com account email address
- Plugin name & Solspace license key (listed together if you have more than 1 to transfer)
- Your Craft ID account email address
The Full Details
The license keys for our Craft 2.x plugins are only for Solspace's use, and do not tie in with the Craft 3 Plugin Store licensing verification system in any way. If you'd like to transfer your Craft 2 plugin license(s) over to the Craft 3 Plugin Store, that's something we can do for you.
Both new and previous purchases of our Craft 2 plugins receive 12 months of quality, private helpdesk support and 12 months of access to all updates of the plugin. If you purchased a Solspace plugin for Craft 2 within the past 12 months, you can receive the remaining balance of that time on Craft 3 upon request. So for example, if you purchased Freeform Lite on November 15, 2018, you can request your license be transferred to the Craft 3 Plugin Store for no extra charge at any time until November 15, 2019, where you'll receive the duration of your 12 month license (which would expire November 15, 2019 and be up for optional renewal then).
Once your 12 month term is finished (whether that's a new purchase or the remaining time from a Craft 2 license transfer), you will be allowed to continue using the plugin, but you will not be eligible for new updates and official product support until you purchase a renewal.
If your Craft 2 plugin license has already expired (more than 12 months since purchase), we can grant you an expired license for Craft 3. That way you only need to purchase the renewal fee instead of a full new purchase to have a valid Craft 3.x plugin license.
