Software Delivery FAQ
What differs in the product I am receiving if I choose electronic delivery vs physical shipment?
The product is the exact same. For electronic delivery, we simply open the product and email you the key. Since nowadays most software boxes don't contain discs to download the software, there is no difference (except that with electronic delivery you are receiving your product faster). Just like retail versions, download versions are transferable and include basic tech support from the manufacturer.
Is this a Full Version or OEM Version?
Full Version. It is fully transferable in the event of hardware failure, unlike OEM licenses. Download products follow the same rules as full, retail products where many licenses are regarded as ‘single user licenses, good for up to 2 computers, meaning that you can install the software on both your home computer and personal laptop. Note: this can vary depending on product or manufacturer, therefore please check the details of the particular product you're interested in.
What happens if I need to reinstall my software?
Not to worry! Simply enter your license key and reinstall. SoftwareMedia.com will keep your software license key on file in the event that you ever lose or misplace it. Just contact our customer service team with your order number, and they can retrieve it for you. On newer orders, you can also grab this data any time by logging into your My Account page
When will I get my software?
Our new express download service gets you your license key via email within one hour of purchase.* No more waiting up to a week for the physical disk to arrive in the mail.
Why is electronic delivery better than getting the physical box?
With electronic delivery, you'll receive the product much faster (typically within one hour*). Also, it's cheaper! By emailing you the key codes, you eliminate the cost of shipping. By eliminating printing, production and shipping costs, you not only save money, but you save the environment. Go ahead and give yourself a nice, green pat on the back. You deserve it!
Where do I download my program?
After you purchase your software, you will receive an email that will provide you with your official software license key and a link to the official product download page where you will be prompted to enter your key.
What is the return policy on electronic delivery products?
All orders are considered complete and closed once the software is installed and activated or the key has been sent. Returns of electronic delivery items are at the discretion of SoftwareMedia.com, and if approved, may take up to 2-3 weeks to verify that the key is still valid.
