Buy Lion

There are three different licenses for the use of Lion, which only differ in who is allowed to use Lion in which environment with the corresponding license: While schoolchildren and students can use Lion particularly cheaply with an EDUCATION license, HOME is the right choice for everyone who wants to use Lion purely for private purposes. Commercial use for the self-employed and in companies is only permitted with a BUSINESS license.

Licenses are valid for one year from the date of order and are not renewed automatically. You do not enter into a contract or take out a subscription.

Please select the license type that suits you and click "Buy" to start the secure ordering process.

What are the payment options
Pay easily, securely & conveniently either by bank transfer, PayPal, credit card, GiroPay or on account.
How many licenses do I need?
You need a separate license for each person who wants to use Lion. You can specify the number of licenses (= persons) during the ordering process and receive a set of license data for the specified number of users. Each license allows one person to use Lion on up to 3 PCs - for example on the computer at the workplace and on a notebook on the go.
Are the licenses a subscription / are they automatically renewed?
No! Your annual license simply expires after a year - no contract, no subscription. If you would like to continue using Lion afterwards, as we of course very much hope, you will have to order a new license yourself.
Can I order on account?
Of course. Simply select the "Purchase Order" payment method in the ordering process.
When does the term of a license begin?
The term of a license begins on the day of purchase.
Is the order process secure?
Of course. For payment processing, we work together with "MyCommerce" (formerly "Share-It") - a payment service provider of DigitalRiver GmbH from Germany, which has reliably processed license orders on the Internet for well over 20 years. Of course, the order takes place via a secure connection ("SSL"). As a provider, we never have access to your payment data such as credit card number or bank details - these are only processed in the high-security data center of DigitalRiver GmbH.
