- full compatibility with Magento 2.4;
- regular functional updates of the extensions;
- full support coverage;
- access to the additional services, including installation and configuration services.
How do Subscriptions Work?
When purchasing Aheadworks extension a 30-day license with support and upgrades is provided. Additionally, you can subscribe to Support and Upgrades, which will come into effect at the end of the initial 30-day support period. If you choose to unsubscribe, with the expiration of this term you still have the lifetime right to use the already installed extension version. Please note that the download option will be deactivated upon Subscription and Updates expiry, whereas composer install will be available only for the version released last before the Subscription and Updates expiry.
The users with active subscription are allowed to:
- Download the latest version of the extension;
- Get free installation;
- Get free configuration (test configuration of the product to very it is fully functional);
- Receive the highest quality support.
You can choose from monthly or annual subscription plans and prolong or cancel it anytime before its expiration. Find out more information here.
