Subscription vs Outright
Subscribe to your software for a fixed period, usually 12-24 months. You'll receive ongoing updates and upgrades so your software will always be up-to-date. You'll need to renew your subscription to continue using the software. To do this, simply buy a new POSA card or ESD from Officeworks.
Outright (or perpetual)
Make a one-time purchase of your software for a single computer and use it for as long as you wish. Suitable if you don't need to upgrade your software version regularly, or don't want to use it on multiple devices.
Number of devices
For subscription-based software, check the number of devices it can be installed on.
Check the operating system requirements and device options (eg PC, Mac, Android, tablet, phone).
At Officeworks, software returns must be within 30 days of purchase. Change of mind is not accepted.
