Astounding flexibility

Unit-based commercial licenses are the most common type. They are used for applications that are installed and run from your own devices. Commercial licenses offer significant benefits over AGPL, including:

  • Release from the CopyLeft AGPL license requirements

  • Release from the requirement to not change the PDF Producer line in the document’s properties

  • Access to dedicated support from iText

  • Ability to use iText 7 add-ons for advanced typography, document cleanup and invoicing

  • Indemnification in the event of IP (intellectual property) or patent infringement

Server license

iText 7 costs €2,640 per server (includes a perpetual license for €2,200, and 1st year support for €440) exclusive of all taxes, VAT and duties. Contact us for pricing for quantity purchases and for add-on pricing.

  • One license per server, virtual machine or node installation, independent of the number of end-users

  • One-time fee, perpetual license

  • 50% discount for non-production servers (e.g. testing, development, Q&A, UAT, BA or DR)

  • Unit-based server licenses are perpetual, support is renewable yearly at 20% of the prevailing list price

Usage example: An airline has a PDF form generation solution on their internal servers. Customers enter their information on the airline's web portal and iText uses that data, data from the airline's database and template rules to create a PDF on the fly for the customer.

End-user license

End-user licenses are the ideal choice to create applications that run on desktops, laptops and/or mobile devices. Licenses are priced at $280 USD per end-user device, exclusive of all taxes, VAT and duties. Contact us for pricing for quantity purchases and for add-on pricing.

  • One license per desktop, laptop or other end-user device installation

  • One-time fee, perpetual license

  • Maintenance and support costs 20% of the license costs per year.

Usage example: Your company has a CRM system that is locally installed on each of your staff's desktop. You have created an archivable PDF Invoice application to turn data entered into the CRM into a PDF Invoice.
