Details on licensing, upgrade and payment options

A personal license is designed for individual use. Geneious can be activated on a maximum of three machines, but will only run on one machine at a time.

A floating license is best for groups that are sharing resources. The number of floating licenses purchased equals the maximum number of simultaneous users. The best package will depend on your group’s usage requirements.

A subscription license ensures you are always current. You receive new versions (upgrades), updates and comprehensive support for the entire subscription period. Subscriptions are usually the most cost effective and flexible choice.

A perpetual version-only license gives you use and updates to the version that is current at the time you purchased. To upgrade to a newer version you must purchase an upgrade. Upgrades are 50% of new license list price.

The following table sets out the entitlements associated with purchase:

Right to use Upgrades Updates Support
Subscription For subscription period Yes Yes Yes, full support
Current Version Forever No Yes 1 year full support

Approximately once a year, a new Geneious version is released. A new version (eg R10) has new features, functionality and improvements. If you do not have a valid subscription you must purchase an upgrade to use a newer version.

Our development team support the two most current versions of Geneious and will release updates (eg R10.1) to these versions. If you have purchased this version the update is free.

You can read the release history at the Previous Versions Page.

If you are on a version-based license plan, a new version upgrade can be purchased at 50% of the current version-only price or you can switch to a subscription based licensing plan. Visit the Upgrade Geneious page to upgrade your license.

You can renew your subscription easily online up to 60 days before your current license expires:

  • Select the license plan you want to purchase
  • On the Billing Information page check the "Is this a subscription renewal?' box
  • Enter the start date for your new subscription (the day after your current expiry date)
  • Fill in the rest of your payment details
  • You will receive your new license key via email
  • Enter the license key into Geneious and continue working with no disruption

Geneious reverts back to restricted mode when the subscription has expired. You will receive a reminder before the expiration date. In restricted mode you can view your data and import and export your files, however most other functions are disabled.

Support consists of both scientific and technical support and can be accessed directly via Geneious or by visiting the support website. All support services are undertaken by highly qualified staff with deep domain expertise.

Scientific support gives you greater understanding of functionality and how to work with Geneious to achieve your goals. From basic functions such as importing sequence data and calling bases, through to more applied activities such as NGS data analysis, constructing phylogenetic trees or designing primers, we have scientific experts available to guide you.

Technical support is for technology related issues that affect your use of Geneious. For example, we actively monitor changes to supported operating systems and external databases such as NCBI and issue updates to Geneious if required. We will also review any specific issues you experience and offer our perspective on how best to address the matter, which occasionally results in a change to Geneious itself.
