Pricing FAQ

Please contact us and we’ll get back to you to set up your preferred way of payment (credit card or bank transfer). We can also send you a Quote and accept Purchase Orders.

No, only developers (i.e. someone who edits the Python code) need a paid subscription. End users can use xlwings PRO tools for free via deploy keys. Deploy keys don’t expire but are bound to a specific version of xlwings.

Please contact us so we can give you access to a private GitHub repository where you can build your installers.

Sure thing! It’s also a great way to support the open source package.

Your xlwings tools with a deploy key will continue to work forever, but they can’t be upgraded to new versions of xlwings unless you renew your subscription. If you use the one-click installer, you’ll also lose access to the build toolchain.

End-users don’t need a paid subscription to use xlwings PRO tools.

No, the license check works 100% offline—no data leaves your computer. You can always verify this by looking at the source code (this includes the source code for xlwings PRO).

Sure thing! xlwings is licensed under a BSD 3-clause license, which is a permissive open source license with minimal restrictions. Companies like this type of license, as it never forces them to publish their changes to the source code.
