Did you know? You may not actually fully own your web store.
If you used a development company to create your site and/or customize your AspDotNetStorefront cart, you may not actually own those changes.
It is common practice (and perfectly legitimate) for a developer to save you a few dollars by using their own copy of the Source Code to make custom changes to your shopping cart and then just install your “compiled” code. Your site works great, but since you did not buy source code yourself, your developer, not you, actually owns those source code changes.
Protect your investment.
Most online merchants own their code. Your site is one of your greatest assets, but only if you actually own the customizations. Should you lose your developer and need to find a new one, or should you try to sell your company, for example, then you absolutely must own and be able to locate a copy of your custom source code – and it must be licensed via our records.
How to check and see if you own source.
Do you own your source? If you’re not sure, then please either login to ‘my licenses’ and take a look (example below) or, if you don’t have a login, please use Live Chat to talk with one of the team – we can look up your ownership quickly and easily.
We can help.
We will continue working through the end of the month, together with our Development Partners, to make sure you have independent ownership of AspDotNetStorefront source code customizations.
1. Special ‘Amnesty’ Pricing through 3/31 - Save $500
A few of you will discover that you don’t own your source code. We just raised the price of source code on January 1st from $995 to $1495. HOWEVER, if you are just realizing now that you should own your source but you don’t, then we are willing to honor the 2012 price of $995 just until the end of March. Use coupon code SC500 at checkout. Buy here.
2. Source Safe Program
This also seems a good time to make sure that enrolling in our “source safe” program means we will store up to three archived versions of your custom code for you so you always know where to find it.
