How to choose an app licensing option
When using Mailer, you pay only for the messages that you send via that app. Therefore, you do not need to purchase a license for Mailer when hosted in Webasyst Cloud. A license is necessary, only if you want to install Mailer on your own web-hosting server.
With all other apps, on Webasyst Cloud, you have a choice between the renting and purchasing a license.
- Rent option allows you to quickly start working without large expenses at the very beginning, because monthly rent is lower than the license price. Once you feel comfortable and decide to keep working with Webasyst, it is advisable to purchase licenses for your apps.

To start quickly and to pay little at the beginning, choose the rent option.
