Do I need to purchase a license for development, staging, testing, or any other non-production domains?
Nope. Just purchase one license per public-facing, production domain and feel free to use, develop on, and test Fine Uploader
within your current workflow.
What happens when the one year licensing period is over?
After one year, you do not have to renew your license to continue using the software.
You may continue to use any version released during your one-year license forever under the commercial license.
However, you will not receive updates unless you renew.
Is support included with my license purchase?
Short answer: Yes.
Support is handled on StackOverflow and is provided to any and all users of Fine Uploader.
Before asking a question we ask that you please read over our Support Guidelines.
Why is Fine Uploader open-source, yet commercially licensed?
The intent of our licensing model is to make Fine Uploader freely accessible to free open-source projects, while collecting money from commercial users.
We put a good amount of time, resources, and money into this project, and the financial sustainability of the library is important in order for us to continue to
provide quick support, new features, and maintenance. There are even more reasons for purchasing a license on our homepage.
What licensing plans do you offer for non-profit and/or educational institutions?
We do offer a special discount for non-profit, and education licensing. For more information, please email
