Whether Microsoft, Adobe or other software manufacturers - the purchase of licences is expensive for companies. No matter how large your workforce is and what requirements your software has to fulfil: used software licences offer you great savings potential.
When you buy used software, you benefit from the same performance at significantly lower purchase prices. Unused old licences, on the other hand, are not very profitable - if you sell used software, you can easily capitalise on them. With us, you can rely on an expert who supports you with strong advisory services for all concerns and questions.

EVERYTHING YOU SHOULD KNOW
The sale and purchase of second-hand software licences is legal in the EU as well as in Switzerland. This was decided by the European Court of Justice in a ruling of 3 July 2012. In Switzerland, trade in second-hand software licences has been permitted since a ruling by the Cantonal Court of Zug on 4 May 2011.

The licence purchase is a rights purchase, which is completely risk-free for you if it is handled correctly and legally secure via the dealer. Softwarebuddies guarantees you non-liability. Should a licence check be due, we will gladly take over the communication with the responsible examiner.

YOUR ADVANTAGES AS A BUYER
When you buy used software licences, you get the same high-quality product at a greatly reduced price. Savings of up to 70% are possible - money that you can use profitably in other ways for your company.
When you buy used software licences, you also acquire the right to corresponding updates of the software. This way you can always use the latest version of your programmes.
When you buy used software, it may also be a question of acquiring older software versions that are no longer freely available on the market. Used licences also give you the possibility to use this option via so-called downgrade rights.
Important: We only sell used software exclusively to companies and institutions that have their registered office within the European Union. We ask for your understanding in this regard.
YOUR ADVANTAGES AS A SELLER
You have decided on a new software solution and no longer need the old licences? Selling old and used software provides you with additional capital that you can invest directly in the purchase of a new software solution if required. You may also be able to save on your budget by resorting to used licences.
After a software usage analysis, you have found that you no longer use a large number of licences? In this case, too, selling is a good way to gain funds that can be put to more sensible use elsewhere.
When a business is closed down, the remaining stock of company assets must be profitably disposed of. Volume licences also belong to these assets and can be sold as used software if they are no longer used.
Wichtig: We only purchase used software licences from companies and institutions that have their registered office within the European Union. We ask for your understanding in this regard.
