Purchasing Find Any File

Here you can purchase licenses that are meant to be used either as a "single user" (for accounts on any computers you and your family uses) or "single computer" (for professional use in a company where multiple users may use the same computer).

Find Any File costs US $6 if you pay via Paypal or FastSpring (or $8 in the App Store).

You have the following payment options:

Note: Choose FastSpring or the Mac App Store if you need a formal invoice!

Once you've paid, you'll get instructions on how to stop the recurring purchase reminder in the program.

Note: I advise against buying from the App Store because:

Paying with Paypal

You may either pay the minimum or pay more if you feel generous (I'd certainly appreciate it).

Volume purchases

For purchasing a few more licenses use Paypal or FastSpring - both offer the option to enter a quantity.

If you like to purchase more than a handful and like to get a volume discount, use FastSpring or contact me directly (see blue link at the top right of this page).
