What is the difference between products taged digital license, physical license, and physical license with DVD?
Digital license (referred to as ESD)
ESD stands for Electronic Software Distribution. These licenses are sent solely electronically and you will receive them into your e-mail immediately after we process your order. It’s the quickest way to receive your products.
Physical license (referred to as CoA)
CoA stands for Certificate of Authenticity. It’s an original sticker from the manufacturer of the software product that contains the license (product key). The sticker will be sent to you via parcel delivery service.
Physical license with DVD (CoA + DVD)
You will get an installation DVD along with an original sticker (CoA) from the manufacturer of the software product. The sticker contains your license (product key). Both of these items will be sent to you via parcel delivery service.
What types of licenses do you sell?
We sell three types of licenses: OEM, Retail/FPP and Volume. The basic differences between them are as follows:
The Original Equipment Manufacturer license. This type of license is usually acquired when you buy a computer, a laptop, or other device from an e-shop, a physical store, or directly from companies like HP or Dell, and it comes with an already installed operating system and some of the Microsoft apps. The lifelong license is transferable between machines – that means that you can deactivate the license from one device, and then activate it on another. .
The Full Packaged Product, more commonly referred to as retail is probably the simplest type of Microsoft licenses. You just buy your license online, or in a store, and it’s yours forever (you may have bought Windows or Office products this way in the past). It can be installed, re-installed, or uninstalled as many times as you want, as long as you use it only on one device at any one time.
This type of licensing is best suited for businesses and organizations that require a purchase of higher number of software licenses without the need to have accompanying physical items such as CDs or DVDs, a user’s guide, or a box. Purchasing in volume cuts the costs for these items as well as reduces the price per installation as the software can be used simultaneously on multiple computers within the organization.
Legal note: Reselling of software licenses (including OEM) is completely legal within the European Union. According to EU law “An author of software cannot oppose the resale of his ‘used’ licences” and “even if the licence agreement prohibits a further transfer, the rightholder can no longer oppose the resale of that copy.” – The CJEU judgment in Case C-128/11 UsedSoft GmbH v Oracle International Corp.
