How to buy

Whether you are an individual student or teacher looking for software for your own use, or you are buying multiple licenses on behalf of a school, college, or university, Steinberg can provide the tools you need at attractive prices.

Multi-user licensing

Schools and higher education institutions can buy multi-user licenses for our professional creative tools. Provided you need five or more seats of a specific application, you can benefit from even lower prices.

Using Steinberg Licensing, our identity-based license management system, you can provide single-user licenses to individual faculty members or install machine-based multi-user licenses on shared computers in your facility for general use.

We can provide support not only for usage of the software, but also for deployment and activation, to help you get up and running as quickly and easily as possible.
