Commercial licenses

Post by ajbrehm » Wed Jun 19, 2019 3:57 am

The hobbyist license is reserved for non-commercial use. For commercial licenses, please see our official website.
So it says on the hobbyist page.

However, on the official website I cannot find a way to purchase commercial licenses or find out about pricing.

Did I miss something?

I think I saw that too at some point. I consider it well hidden.

It makes planning very difficult.
