Subscription licenses can be purchased via our website or through our sales team. After adding the desired licenses to your shopping cart, sign into your existing account or create a new one to complete the purchase.
If you need any assistance or a custom quote, please contact our sales team at 888-646-4223 from 9:00 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. ET, Monday – Friday or by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org. Customers from outside the United States may find a local distribution partner using our online map.
Once the purchase is complete, installation information and your license information will be available in the Customer Portal. Your subscription will automatically renew on the specified renewal date unless canceled.
Starting early January 2023 in select markets, you can receive a discounted price on the first year of an annual subscription when an eligible perpetual license is converted. To redeem this offer, enter the full serial number of your perpetual license in the discount code field during checkout. This process will transfer ownership of the perpetual license back to Vectorworks, and you will no longer be able to use any version of the perpetual license. If you need assistance or have questions about converting a license, please contact us at 888-646-4223 or email@example.com.
If you have a trial version installed and the trial period has ended, you will automatically be prompted to enter a new serial number when you open Vectorworks. If your trial period has not expired, you can enter the new serial number under Tools > Options > Vectorworks Preferences. Click on the “Session” pane then the “Serial Numbers” button and click “Add” to enter your new serial number and begin using your professional license.
Yes, licenses can be installed on up to two machines, but you can only actively use your Vectorworks license on one device at a time.
You do not need a constant internet connection to use Vectorworks, but you will need to connect to the internet to activate the license and you will need to reconnect at least once every 90 days to reauthenticate. Additionally, active subscription customers must connect to the internet within 3 days of the subscription renewal date.
If your organization is tax-exempt, please contact sales at 888-646-4223 or firstname.lastname@example.org. Prior to making a purchase, please provide documentation of the tax-exempt status as we cannot retroactively apply tax exemptions to completed purchases. Once our team has processed your information, you will be able to make tax-exempt purchases directly through the e-store.
For additional questions, please review our purchasing policies.

Project sharing requires high-speed network connections. As the network bandwidth increases, so does project sharing performance. Slower network speeds can still provide a satisfactory user experience if you minimize operations that transfer large amounts of data over the network (such as committing changes to the project file or refreshing a local working file).
