Frequently Asked Questions

Answers to the most commonly asked pricing questions

Yes, we do. Please contact us for Educational or Non-profit pricing. You will need to provide proof of educational or non-profit status within 7 days of completing your purchase. We define “educational” as anyone using LCFM Native in an educational setting either teaching or learning, where it is not used to generate any commercial income. Acceptable proof would be a teacher ID, a student ID, or a website link listing the purchaser in an appropriate role in an educational establishment. Non-profit is defined as a registered charity in whatever country you are purchasing from, and you will need to provide proof of charitable status. Please note that in most circumstances we would not regard a governmental organisation as a charity or non-profit.

Yes. Please contact us for a customized quote on concurrent licensing.

Concurrent use means two users or more are online and accessing the FM server at the same time. A concurrent license is required when you do not have names for these users or they change frequently. For example if your app is distributed to the general public via an app store, you are likely to need concurrent licensing. We define “at the same time” as within a 6 hour period.

Yes we do. To qualify for offline licensing your app must never connect to a FileMaker server at any point in its lifecycle, even to log in a user for the first time. Simply select this option on our pricing page.

A user is anyone who uses either LCFM Native the tool – eg your developers – or anyone who accesses the built app – your end users

Our pricing is around 1/3rd of the equivalent FileMaker license cost. However, because we use the Data API, you are likely to need fewer licenses from FileMaker to deploy via LCFM Native, which can represent a substantial saving. Each user license from FileMaker comes with 2GB/month of data use, excluding container data. Your FileMaker purchase will be metered by data rather than users. If you do find the included data in your FM license is not enough, you can buy additional data packs from FileMaker at a modest price ($60/24gb/year at time of writing)

Yes, you do. You need the appropriate number of licenses from FileMaker to cover the amount of data you expect your LCFM Native app to use. See “How does your pricing compare to FileMaker’s”.

We define “online” as ever connecting back to a FileMaker server. Your app can call urls, connect to eg mySQL databases or show browser pages and still count as offline for our licensing purposes. It becomes online when it touches a FileMaker server.
