Frequently Asked Questions

Who is eligible?

Companies and individuals with less than $1 million USD in annual gross revenue and 5 or fewer developers.

How long are the licenses valid ?

The community licenses do not expire. You will continue to receive support and updates for new versions.

Why are you doing this? What's the catch?

We loved what Microsoft did with Visual Studio Community Edition and decided to extend it to our products as well. There is no catch, but we would really appreciate it if you help spread the message through Twitter, Facebook, and LinkedIn.

We are a consulting company that writes applications for other organizations. We qualify but can we deliver products to our customers?

There are two scenarios to be considered.

  • Your organization owns the intellectual property (IP)

    You deliver binaries to your customers, who have no claim on the IP itself. In this case, since you own the IP, redistribution to others is allowed under our standard redistribution grant. It is important that your customer has no claim on the IP. It is also important that the customer does not distribute or “white-label” the resulting application. They can only use it for internal purposes. If they distribute it, the second scenario applies.

  • Your customer owns the IP or distributes the application built on your IP

    In this case, Syncfusion will allow you to give each client a single commercial binary license for free, provided that each entity or organization would itself qualify for the Community License. The only stipulation is that you provide us information on your customer in order for us to confirm their community license eligibility to register a license in their name. In the event your customer does internal development or moves development to another organization, they will need to buy actual commercial licenses by contacting us. As long as your company is the only one working on the application and you continue to meet the requirements for the community license, no further licenses need to be acquired. If you no longer meet the requirements, a Syncfusion account representative may reach out to discuss your paid licensing options.

Are governments and governmental organizations eligible for Community License?

Any government-related organization (i.e., funded by tax dollars) is not eligible for Community License. Governmental agencies that are not taxpayer funded can use the community license after signing a master license agreement. Contact us to initiate the request.

Can the products be used to build commercial applications?


How is the $12,475 value calculated?

Each license of Essential Studio is valued at $2,495. For companies that take advantage of the five-license maximum, the total value is $12,475.

We really like what you are doing. How can we help?

We hope to add even more value to this program in the future, but we need your help in reaching more developers. We would appreciate any help spreading the message through Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn, email, or blogs.

Can the Community License be used for open source projects?

The Community License can be used in open source projects, but we require that you first contact us to register.

Why do you require a LinkedIn or Xing login for the Community License?

Community License is offered at no charge, and we need to verify your eligibility. LinkedIn and Xing are established sites that help us do that as well as save time. At Syncfusion, we take your privacy seriously. We will just do a read-only verification of your profile and neither LinkedIn nor Xing will track your Syncfusion activities.
