Ordering and Payment
In order to order sample sets (meaning licenses as described below), please fill in the order form on our website. Payments can be made using PayPal (automatically during the ordering process) or European Bank Transfer (using IBAN/BIC). Inside the EU, the free IBAN/BIC method is preferred because it saves us the rather high PayPal fees. By ordering the sample set, you agree to receive the invoice electronically (PDF, sent to you by email).
Shipping and Delivery
Sample sets are delivered by download. When your order is completely processed (payment has arrived and has been manually checked), license codes and download links are generated and shown in our customer area (myPROSPECTUM). You need a myPROSPECTUM account for access. You can either sign up manually to myPROSPECTUM, or, if required, our system automatically creates a myPROSPECTUM account for you as part of the ordering process.
Please note that we manually check every order for security reasons before issuing licenses. Usually this takes 0 to 2 business days.
