Commercial Pricing

You can start developing your product with SixtyFPS for free. You only need to purchase a commercial license once you wish to distribute proprietary software. Start for free, pay when you're shipping.

For shipping you need to purchase:

Remember that we also offer completely free options to use SixtyFPS:

  • Open Source (GPLv3): You need to make the source code of your application available to your users, and your users are encouraged to modify and redistribute the software. Making your application Open Source is a great ethical choice.
  • Ambassador: You can also use SixtyFPS for free if you agree to help us promote SixtyFPS (more info).

Regardless of the chosen license, you can always purchase support and services.

Software License

You can choose, for each of your products, between two options:

Software Perpetual License
  • 29900€ / product
  • 30 hours of support included
  • 12 months of free upgrades
Software Subscription License
  • 2490€ / month / product
  • 10 hours of support/month included
  • free upgrades
  • Must be paid as long as your product is being sold

What does "perpetual" mean?

When you acquire a Perpetual License, you receive the right to use the versions of SixtyFPS that were provided to you under the License forever.
The license is valid for all supported versions of SixtyFPS at the time of purchase and subsequent versions released within a 12 month period. As the license is perpetual, development can continue with the purchased versions forever. Commercial use of versions released after the 12 month period is possible with purchase of a new license.

What does "per product" mean?

We do not charge fees based on number of developers, designers, etc.. This gives you the flexibility to scale up your development team without additional cost. We only charge fixed fees for each software program or product built with the toolkit. "Product" means the end result of a software or hardware manufacturing process, which is distributed under a specific name or order code, and which incorporates software written using SixtyFPS' frameworks and/or tools. If you are marketing the same product under many different names, please contact us for custom pricing.

Can I start with one license model (eg. GPL, Ambassador) and move to another license (eg. Commercial) a later point of time?

Yes. No additional fees other than the applicable commercial license fees need to be payed. (no back licensing)
However we retain the marketing rights obtained under the Ambassador License for existing materials.

Distribution License for Devices

Shipping your product on devices requires a distribution license. The price depends on how many devices you're shipping:

Up to 10000 devices, the price is 1€ / device. Contact us for additional volume discounts.

We will give you a free distribution license for up to 10k devices if you purchase the software license 12 months ahead of the start of production.

Support and Services

Support and Services can be purchased in blocks of 10 hours. If you use the GPL or Ambassador License, a minimum purchase of 30 hours applies.
