How much does Nacsport cost? Do I have to pay for it every year? Is it possible to pay in installments? How do 'lifetime licenses' work?

 

These are common questions which we get asked on a daily basis. In this article, we explain how our pricing policy works and show you how much a Nacsport software license will cost you.

First of all, please note that there are 8 different programs in our range of software (plus a free app), and, in terms of licensing and payment, they don’t all work in the same way.

 

Let’s kick off with an explanation of some of the core concepts of Nacsport payment and, later, we’ll talk about each product, case by case.

 

 

 

Two Important Concepts: License and the Support and Updates Service (SUS)

 

These are two concepts that we’ll talk about throughout this article, so we think it’s important to define them at the outset.

 

License

 

This is the activation code that allows you to use the program. Without a license, it’s impossible to use Nacsport.

 

Support and Updates Service (SUS)

 

This is an annual payment which gives the user access to technical assistance and program updates. Updates generally include new tools and fixes designed to improve the Nacsport experience.

 

 

 

Different Types of License  

 

Lifetime License

 

The majority of Nacsport products come with lifetime licenses. But what does this mean? Well, basically, that once you buy Nacsport, you’ve bought it. The software is yours to use as you see fit and you won’t have to pay for it again. This is a different model to that favoured by many other video analysis programs such as Sportscode with whom the user has to pay a yearly subscription to be able to continue using the software.

 

In this article, Nacsport founder Alberto Rodríguez explains why we favour the lifetime license model. In a nutshell, it keeps us working hard for you, the end user.

 

So which software in the Nacsport range include lifetime licenses? Almost all of them:

 

•    Basic
•    Basic+
•    Scout+
•    Pro+
•    Elite
•    Tag&view

 

Of course, a lifetime license doesn’t mean that you’ll be able to use the program forever. There are too many factors outside our control to be able to guarantee this. Variables such as operating system updates, changing video codecs, compatibility issues and the natural advance of technology can all affect how the software functions.

 

Because of these and other factors, we thoroughly recommend that you subscribe to our Support and Updates Service.

 

SUS is an annual payment which provides regular updates to the software, adding new tools and ensuring that it continues to function correctly in the face of the ever-onward march of technology.

 

Annual License

 

Coach Station and Viewer are the only products in our range which do not come with a lifetime license. Instead, they include a 12-month license. This means that a new license must be purchased every year in order to keep the software working.

 

 

 

Payment Plans for Lifetime Licenses

 

Single Payment 

 

Simply pay the full price for the license and it’s yours! You’ll never have to pay for the license again.

 

Installments

 

We offer payment plans where the user can pay for the license in two or five installments, depending on the product.

 

In this case, you won’t own the software until you’ve made the last payment.

 

With this type of plan, payment of each installment must be made on time in order to continue using the software. Failure to pay will mean that the software will be locked and unusable.

 

If the payment date is missed, the user will have three months to pay the next installment. In the event that they do not make payment, the plan will be scrapped and, should they wish to use Nacsport again in the future, they’ll have to start payment again from scratch.

 

An Example...

 

You’ve obtained a license with a payment plan of 3 yearly installments. You made the first payment and received the license on the 3rd of August, 2020. 

 

The second payment is due the following year on the 3rd of August, 2021. If the payment is not made, the software will cease to function on this date. You will then have until the 3rd of November to complete the transaction and reactivate the software. 

 

If the second payment is not made by the 3rd of November, the payment plan will be considered void and, should you wish to continue using Nacsport in the future, you will have to begin a new payment plan from scratch.

 

If payment is made before the 3rd of November, the third payment will be due on the 3rd of August, 2022, not the date you paid the missed installment. 

 

 

 

The Support and Updates Service (SUS)

 

SUS is available for all licenses except, as we said above, Coach Station.

 

SUS is a yearly fee which entitles the user to technical assistance from the Nacsport Support Team and regular updates to the newest version of the software. If SUS payments are not up-to-date, neither of these services will be available

 

Here’s how SUS payments work, depending on the software:

 

Nacsport Basic and Tag&view: Mandatory

 

For Nacsport Basic and Tag&view, SUS payments are mandatory in order to keep the software functioning. In other words, if the yearly fee hasn’t been paid, the software will not work.

 

Nacsport Basic+, Scout+, Pro+, Elite and Viewer: Recommended

 

For the above mentioned programs, SUS payment is recommended and not mandatory. This means that, should the user decide not to pay for the service, the software will continue to function as normal.

 

Of course, this also means that the user will not be entitled to assistance from the Nacsport team and there will be no updates.

 

As we mentioned above, we can’t guarantee that the software will work forever in this case as many of the updates we release ensure compatibility with operating systems, video codecs, third.party software, etc.

 

A Highly Recommended Service

 

This is why SUS exists. Our team works hard every day to ensure the best experience for our users. We can guarantee that they have the latest version of the software and that our team will always be on hand to assist with any issues they may be having.

 

In other words, we thoroughly recommend this service. It’s a testament to its usefulness that 90% of users resubscribe to this service every year

 

SUS Included During Payment Periods

 

When purchasing a license with a single payment, SUS for the first year is included in the price. After the first year, payment must be made annually.

 

When buying a license in installments, the price of SUS will be included in each installment. This means that if you buy using a 3-year payment plan, SUS will be covered during that entire period and a separate annual payment must be made in year 4 onwards for the service.

 

Payment of SUS

 

When the date of SUS renewal arrives (mandatory or recommended), the user will have a maximum of 3 months to make the payment.

 

If payment is not made within this period, a surcharge of 12.5% is added to any future payments and, every 3 months hereafter, the same surcharge will be added.

 

An Example…

 

On the 4th of July, 2020, you made the third and last payment in the terms of your license. SUS is included for this year but on the 4th of July, 2021, you must decide whether or not you want to continue paying for support and updates.

 

You have 3 months to make up your mind. If you choose to pay, great, you can contact the Nacsport team any time you need help with the software and you can download any updates automatically!

 

You have three months to make this decision. If on the 3rd of October, you decide not to pay, no problem, you can continue to use the software (unless you’re using Basic or Tag&view, as explained above). However, you will get no support from the Nacsport team of experts and there will be no updates.

 

If you decide in the future that you want to resubscribe to this service, a surcharge of 12.5% per three month period since the last payment was made will be added to the price. This is to cover the cost of all the updates added to the software.

 

This may seem complex, but it’s really not. If you have any doubts, feel free to contact us and we’ll put your mind at ease.

 

Ok, let’s move on to talking about each specific Nacsport product. As we move forward, remember to keep in mind the terms “license” and “SUS”!

 

Nacsport Payment Plans

 

 

 

Which Product Do You Want?

 

Nacsport Basic

 

•      License: Single payment or in 2 installments (one per six months).
•      SUS: Included in the first year’s payment. Mandatory from the second year onwards. If SUS is not paid, the license will be void and the software will cease to function.

 

Nacsport Basic+, Scout+ or Pro+

 

•      License: Single payment or in 3 installments (one per year).
•      SUS: Included for 1 year in the case of single payments. Included for 3 years in the case of installments. Highly recommended after the payment period has ended.

 

Nacsport Elite

 

•      License: Single payment or in 3 or 5 installments (one per year).
•      SUS: Included for 1 year in the case of single payments. Included for 3 or 5 years in the case of installments (depending on payment plan). Highly recommended after the payment period has ended.

 

Nacsport Tag&view

 

•    License: Single payment.
•    SUS: Included in the first year’s payment. Mandatory from the second year onwards. If SUS is not paid, the license will be void and the software will cease to function.

 

Nacsport Viewer

 

•      License: Single payment or two installments (one per year).
•      SUS: Included for 1 year in the case of single payments. Included for 2 years in the case of installments. Highly recommended after the payment period has ended.

 

Nacsport Coach Station

 

•      License: Must be renewed each year (no lifetime license).
•      SUS: Included.

 

 

 

In Summary

When buying Nacsport, the two important concepts to keep in mind are licenses and SUS.

 

Every Nacsport product comes with a lifetime license, except Coach Station. When the payment period ends, the software is yours to keep, although this does not ensure that the software will remain compatible with operating systems, 3rd-party software, etc.

 

To guarantee this compatibility, we recommend our Support and Update Service (SUS), which provides technical assistance and the latest version of Nacsport. SUS is mandatory for Basic and Tag&view and highly recommended for all other products.

 

Generally speaking, users have a 3-month period to make payment, whether that’s for installments or SUS. After this period, payment plans for licenses will be considered void and the user will have to start again with the payment and, in the case of SUS, a 12.5% surcharge will be added for each 3-month period which passes without payment being made.

 

As always, if you have any doubts about the payment process and would like us to clarify anything, get in contact with us and we’ll be glad to put your mind at rest.
