Log in using your email and password.
Then in the Licenses panel click Purchase YoYotta


The store accepts Amex, Mastercard and Visa cards.
Payment can be made in GBP £, EUR € or USD $.
Choose the number of YoYotta licenses required and click the Pay button.

Each license can be installed on a single computer. The license can be uninstalled and reinstalled on another computer. The computer must be online to install and uninstall.
Once installed you do not need to be logged in and YoYotta does not need the internet.
YoYotta LTFS and Automation include all the YoYotta functionality, so you only need to purchase one of the three versions.

Credit card

The store accepts Amex, Mastercard and Visa.
First enter card number, expiry and CVC code.

Cardholder address

Enter the cardholder name and address and click the Pay button.

If purchasing from EU please enter the company VAT number. The VAT number will be checked and if valid then the VAT will be removed.

Sometime your bank may decline the purchase because it is a new online purchase. If this happens nothing will be charged to your card. Contact your bank then they should be able to authorise the payment and you can then retry the purchase.

Install license

When the payment is processed the license panel will appear showing the new license.
Select the license and click Install License.

YoYotta installed

The main window will get wider showing more buttons. The license is now installed and can used on this computer whilst online or offline.
There is an Uninstall License button, after clicking the license will be available to install on another computer.

Purchased licenses are permanent, however they can be installed with an expiration date. For example you may want to install the license on a client's or freelancer's laptop for 2 weeks.

Expiring license

In the calendar select an expiration date for the license. Then click Install License

Expiring license installed

The license expiry date is shown in the table, after this date the license will be available to install on another computer. This is useful if a production needs a license for a few weeks, after that time you don't need to have access to the computer to uninstall the license. If the license is still needed you could screen share to the Mac, log in and install it again.
