Created: 11 Mar 2011 | 9 comments

I need some more PGP licenses for our NPO. I can't buy online as I figuered out ... os is there a way?

I am just referrred to "local partners" but the two I called don't sell PGP ... Any way to order PGP online as before?

Thanks, Tom. Now it seems to work.

But why it says "Price per license: Starting at $62.57" for PGP Desktop Home but the cheapest license is $99.

I'm guessing that the difference is the cost of the one year upgrade assurance.  You might want to try the Chat with Sales option to see if you can omit that it you don't want it.

Thanks Tom!

Is it possible to use the onlione store outside the USA?

I coundn't figure out ... if I change the country, I get into completly different Symantec websites with no PGP available ... :(((

I think this is what you want.  If it isn't available from outside the US, it may be due to US export controls - there are countries that PGP is not allowed to be exported to.

I'm from Switzerland and before PGP came under Symantec there was no problem purchasing and downloading PGP.

The problem now is that PGP is only available in the Symantec US online store and when you want to by you get to the checkout and there https://store.symantec.com/en/us/checkout/payment  it says:

Billing Information

United States or Canadian addresses only.

:(

This is apparently related to US export restrictions of encryption software outside of US and Canada.  This was greatly relaxed in 1999, but I believe is still well regulated.  I have no idea if this is a temporary result of the Symantec purchase of PGP Corp, or intended to be ongoing.

This shouldn't be related to export rules.  I think it is just a limitation on Symantec's North America web store.  I do not know if/when a Europe-based store will carry PGP products but I certainly expect and hope that will happen.

There are a number of Symantec resellers in Switzerland who provide the Encryption (PGP) products:
