As we gear up for another action-packed year of new product launches – and with all of the online conversations on the topic – it felt like the right time to clarify Corel’s approach to product upgrades. Our commitment to both existing and future customers is to provide high-quality, affordable products with straightforward and simple guidelines regarding the use of those products.
Corel is happy to offer our customers special upgrade pricing if you are currently using one of the last two versions of our product. Whether you are using PaintShop Pro, Painter , VideoStudio, WinDVD or one of our many other products, our approach to upgrades is the same across the board. In some cases, we have existing products, such as CorelDRAW Graphics Suite, where the upgrade pricing is currently available to owners of any previous version of the software. However, as new versions of these products are released, they will follow the same “two versions back” approach to qualify for upgrade pricing.
We always aim to deliver the best options for our customers, which includes giving you plenty of opportunities to move up to the latest versions of our software, at a fair price. In addition to our upgrade policy, as we launch new versions, it’s common practice for us to run special, time-limited upgrade pricing promotions for our long-time users who may still be on much earlier versions of the software. Generally we would like to see all of our customers using one of the latest two versions of our products since this ensures that you have full access to the latest product improvements and that you are fully supported by our technical and customer support teams. In order to be eligible for special upgrade pricing and other benefits, all you need to do is register your product, either when you’re first installing your software or by visiting Corel.com, where you can create a Corel account and then follow the registration instructions.
Also, if you’re not currently using our products but are curious to try them out, we encourage you to check out the full-featured free trials of our most popular brands. We have powerful and affordable solutions for photo and video editing, graphic design, digital painting and office productivity. In addition, if you visit Corel.com and sign-up to receive our Deal Alert, we will be offering users of competitive products special pricing if they choose to switch to Corel products. All in all, it’s a great time to get to know Corel!
