Volume-based License

The volume-based license is one of iText’s commercial licenses and is a capacity rental license for companies that install their PDF applications on hosted platforms (e.g. Amazon Cloud, Azure, etc.) or in cases where instance counts cannot be made. This license is available for Java and .NET.


Why use Volume-based License?

The pricing for this license is based on the specific volume of PDFs that your company processes annually. Please note that we distribute one license per application and that there are steep discounts available for companies that produce high volumes.

Possible to install on a hosted platform

Our volume-based licenses allow you to install iText 7 on a hosted platform. The instance count will fluctuate depending on the traffic.

You don't have to share your application and/or source code (closed-source)

This license had significant benefits when compared to AGPL, because it releases you from “copyleft” AGPL license requirements, as well as from the requirements to not change the PDF Producer line in the document’s properties. It offers indemnification in the event of IP (intellectual property) or patent infringement and grants you access to iText’s professional and dedicated support team.

Use Case: unlimited instances

Your company runs a web application on rented Azure infrastructure. Since the number of instances that Azure allocates to you depends on how much traffic you have at any given time, you cannot give an exact instance count.
