Can I buy upgrades in the FileMaker Licensing programs?
Only standard volume licensing (VLA) offers discounted upgrade pricing. The site programs (SLA & ASLA) do not have specific upgrade pricing because these programs already give heavily discounted pricing. AVLA is an annual program and includes upgrades at no extra cost.
What is the minimum order quantity for VLA and AVLA?
The minimum order quantity is 5 licenses for your first purchase. If you already have a license contract, you may add any number of new licenses to it by providing your previous contract number.
I’m an existing licensing customer. Can I place orders for additional licenses?
Yes. As long as you give us your existing contract number, simply choose your program and follow the steps to buy licenses.
What is Maintenance?

Maintenance is upgrade insurance.
This means that upgrades commercially released by FileMaker during the Maintenance period are automatically licensed and sent to you at no additional charge.
