About LicenseSpring

LicenseSpring is a cloud-based Software Entitlement Management Service (also known as a License as a Service, or LaaS) for Software Vendors that distribute software applications. Licensing can be configured as perpetual, time-limited, subscription, or metered, and a license can either be node-locked, or allow for concurrent usage, also known as floating licenses. LicenseSpring also provides offline activation and license check capabilities, so that software can be distributed to clients whose devices do not connect to the internet.

To make it easy to connect to the LicenseSpring service, we provide SDKs in Java, C/C++, .NET/C#, Delphi, Swift/Objective-C, as well as a License API.

LiscenseSpring currently integrates with Stripe, FastSpring, and 2Checkout...

Great value and robust feature set for cross-platform applications

Pros

Price for the features provided is hard to beat. Also easy to set up and use.

Cons

Customer support is sometimes slow for the free tier, which is what we were using during the evaluation period.

Reasons for Choosing LicenseSpring

We evaluated several options before selecting LicenseSpring. It was the best value considering the features it provides and ease of set up. I am using it in a cross-platform application for Windows and macOS.

Best Value for User Rights Management

License Spring has been great to work with. They have been very responsive to requests and issues as we got started with them. And probably most importantly, their licensing service is very reliable.

Pros

License Spring was chosen as one of our most cost effective services for handling license-key creation and registration for our product. License Spring ultimate won out as it supports FastSpring's purchase infrastructure. We got into the service rather early, and had to go a more manual REST API method because of our usage of Unity and being both Windows and Mac based. In the near future we are going to revisit our License Spring implementation and catch up with their licensing SDK improvements.

Cons

The documentation took some time to really come to an understanding with, but was directly comparable to many service's documentation. I would like to be able to delete packages from the dashboard, I made a few in error as I was learning the system (although I recognize this may not be possible by nature of the underlying database structure).

Reasons for Choosing LicenseSpring

Price, Integration with FastSpring, Responsiveness.

Simple licensing system

The overall experience is quite positive to date we have not had any problems and we have received the required support. Perhaps in some features that we have requested to add they have had problems adding them, but in any case I recommend it.

Pros

The product, in general, is easy to use. Its implementation in the program code is quite simple.

Cons

I think that the administration interface needs improvements that allow better administration of orders and users.

Hello, thank you for the review, and for the feedback. We are a fairly small team, and for the time being have prioritized feature development, unfortunately for some aspects to the detriment of the UI. We intend to fully overhaul the interface to make is as intuitive as possible in the upcoming months, so I encourage you to stay tuned! Thanks again for your trust in LicenseSpring!

A Great Platform for Startups

It's been a solid experience for us. Our development pipelines integrated very easily with the frameworks from LicenseSpring, and whenever we faced a challenge, the team was always able to provide a timely solution to us. The support was the breakaway feature!

Pros

The product is incredibly consistent, delivering a reliable experience across platforms and a clear method of use whenever we need to deploy new products, regardless of how they are developed. I also appreciate the ability to tie the product back to our merchant service to have an automated pipeline from point of sale all the way to product activation.

Cons

Some of the documentation on the web portal could use an update.

Perfect for my use case

Having a cloud-based licensing platform gives me more peace of mind as a software creator. I know I cannot stop all forms of piracy, but I can at least try to protect my IP with a key-based solution. It is nice to know I can login to the platform and check the status of my licenses at any time.

Pros

LicenseSpring was easy to get integrated into my software product OmniTag. The API allowed me to get up and running quickly, and because it is cloud-based, I always have control over activating / deactivating licenses.

Cons

The biggest challenge I had was integrating LicenseSpring with my online Shopify store. I had to write my own app for this. However, now that it is up and running, the process works flawlessly.

Reasons for Choosing LicenseSpring

LicenseSpring's free tier allowed me to get up and running quickly. The cloud-based implementation solves a lot of common problems with checking and validating licenses, so it was a perfect fit for my use case.

Fits absolutely our needs

Pros

The team behind the tool is great. Requests for expansion and adaptation are taken up and implemented quickly if technically feasible. We chose LicenseSpring because, in my opinion, it is currently the solution with the best price-performance ratio on the market.

Cons

Actually there is nothing negative that I can mention.

Amazing support during implementation in custom environment

Pros

The environment for issuing licenses is clean and easy to use, the support is amazing, and the system has plenty of features to allow it to scale with your business.

Cons

Implementation of the SDK was rather challenging, but due to the great support it all ended up working great.

Hello, thank you for your feedback, and noted your comment regarding documentation. We are working on improving it so that our customers do not need to rely so heavily on our support as you had to, although support requests are always welcome!

Cons

Not much. It is exactly what we wanted. Keep up the good work!

It's great that there are a couple good options on the market these days for license management. We chose LicenseSpring because of it's easy to use and that it provided all the features we wanted, including subscription licenses and e-commerce integration.
