Purchase FAQs

Here are some frequently asked questions about licensing and payment. If your question is not answered here send us an email and we’ll get back to you.

How is Perch licensed?

We have two options for licensing of Perch, a one-off license or a multi-site subscription. The license terms are the same for both, however with a one-off license there are no further costs. A subscription license is only valid while your subscription is being paid.

If you are building a single site, or are an end client who needs to buy a license for your own site then the one-off license would be your choice.

If you are a design agency building many sites each year, and you typically keep control of those sites then the multi-site license may be a great choice.

How is Perch Runway licensed?

Currently we do not offer subscription pricing for Perch Runway, Runway licenses use the one-off license model only.

Buy a Perch Runway license and there are no ongoing costs.
