"Modules/plugins or extensions" are not needed to use AJAX-ZOOM!!! You can integrate AJAX-ZOOM anywhere or use it as a stand-alone application.

However, our modules will facilitate the integration of AJAX-ZOOM into various established e-commerce systems like Magento, Prestashop, or WooCommerce. Please note that the automatic download of AJAX-ZOOM core scripts during modules installation may fail. In this case, you will need to download AJAX-ZOOM main scripts (see above) separately and upload the "axZm" folder into the AJAX-ZOOM module directory. More information about modules and installation instructions can be found in the "Mudules/Extensions" section.

* Prices and taxes
All prices are one-time payments; those are NOT monthly or yearly payments plans.

All image files and the software itself are installed on-premise, so you have complete control over them. Don't hesitate to contact the support if you have any questions or doubts about the security.

Prices are subject to (slightly) change without notice. That should not bother you if you already have bought a license.

The prices are excluding VAT (value-added tax). That does not affect customers from outside of the European Union in any way. Companies or individuals outside the European Union do NOT need to pay VAT and provide a VAT-ID.

Within the EU (European Union), this offer exclusively addresses professional customers with a valid VAT-ID (value-added tax identification number). The "reverse charge" applies, and tax obligations are passed over to the invoice recipient. Thus, the German VAT (19%) will be added ONLY for customers located in Germany.

If you are from an EU country and do not have a valid VAT-ID yet, please ask your web development company, which normally should have a valid VAT-ID, to purchase the AJAX-ZOOM software for you. They can then charge you domestically. Should that for a reason be not possible, then please get in touch with the AJAX-ZOOM support to see if we can find a solution for you.

1 Number images
The license types mainly differ by the number of images displayed at a domain or subdomain within the AJAX-ZOOM viewer. The second significant differentiation is the ability to apply the multi-resolution technology (see below). the "Simple" license, you can display unlimited images, but the viewer does not use the multi-resolution technology.

If you would like to use the multi-resolution technology and you have an online shop with 1.500 products and on average three product images, you will need a license that can handle up to 4.500 images - in this case, the "Business" license (up to 5.000 images).

For the 360° rotate / spin tool, each frame counts as one image! For example, if you have 250 product spins with 36 frames in each spin, you need a "Corporate" license (up to 9.000 images).

Using both still images and 360-views within the AJAX-ZOOM viewer means that the numbers of images need to be summed. Adding the two examples above would result in 5.000 + 9.000 = 14.000 images. That means you need at least an "Enterprise", the "Unlimited", or a "Simple" license.

See the "Version Updates and Upgrades" section of the license agreement for upgrades between license types. It is best to ensure that at least the medium-term development of your project covers the AJAX-ZOOM license. If necessary, we recommend ordering the next larger license in advance to avoid heretic movements later on. The "Unlimited" license gives you the freedom and insurance to neglect any restrictions such as the number of images or anything else. We also prioritize support requests from owners of the "Unlimited" license.

2 Multi-resolution pyramid and image tiles technology
The AJAX-ZOOM viewer can "stream" parts of an image using the so-called image tiles and an image pyramid. When the user zooms in, only the required parts of an image are loading to fill the visible viewport. On the other hand, when the image is not zoomed in, the viewer loads image tiles from the pyramid level that best fits the screen resolution and density. This is similar to Google Maps - when you zoom in, the view gets sharper after a while.

The AJAX-ZOOM software automatically creates pyramid images and tiles if they are missing. It also has a batch tool that can pre-generate all AJAX-ZOOM needs with one button press.

You can disable the multi-resolution image tiling by enabling the "simpleMode" option in a config file. The original source image loads entirely at full zoom level or, whenever appropriate, depending on the resolution and screen density. That is how most software of this kind works.

The "simpleMode" option is not available for "Basic", "Standard", and "Business" license types. On the other side, the "Simple" license type does not have the multi-resolution feature. The "Unlimited" license can automatically switch between "simpleMode" and multi-resolution by a definable resolution threshold.

Please read this article to learn more about the "simpleMode". It also contains a demo that depicts the difference.

If you are unable to understand this technology and the difference to make your licensing decision, please contact the support to schedule a consultation. Don't worry, it's not trivial, so you should understand even the slightest bit. In these days, it's surprising that you visit a site that isn't called Google or Facebook, right?

3 Branding
The Demo, Evaluation, and Developer versions have a small text at the corner of the viewer. The Demo version has an additional watermark in the middle of the viewer. After purchasing a commercial license, all texts, brandings, and watermarks disappear. The viewer no longer contains anything indicating the origin.

4 Technology
PHP or ASP.NET? If you use one of the modules for Magento, Prestashop, Shopware, WooCommerce, and the like or integrate AJAX-ZOOM manually into a LAMP system (Linux, Apache, MySQL, and PHP), NGINX / PHP [...] you certainly need a PHP license!

ASP.NET is for IIS (Internet Information Services / Server) and other Microsoft products without native PHP installed.

5 Resolution
"MP" stands for megapixel regarding the image resolution (width x height). The demo version has a limit of 3.2 megapixels for the source images. Exceeding this limit triggers an error. If you have successfully integrated AJAX-ZOOM into your project manually or installed a plugin and would like to test the software without the resolution limit, contact the support to request a temporal evaluation license for your domain or subdomain. The development domain or subdomain should be within DNS (not localhost or an IP address).

Buy Commercial License

The license is bind to domain / subdomain and not to the purchaser of the license! Thus as a provider of web development services you can purchase a license for your customer's domain.
- PHP - ASP.NET (Phalanger)
Select the platform - PHP or ASP.NET "Phalanger" PHP compiler. If you are using one of the modules (Magento, PrestaShop, WooCommerce...) this is certainly PHP.
Select the License Type you want to purchase. Licenses mainly differ in the number of images. The current selection - Standard - allows you to use AJAX-ZOOM with 1.500 images on one domain or subdomain.
Number images info
Enter a valid domain or subdomain name without http(s) and without www, e.g., mydomain.com or products.mydomain.com (both protocols and www subdomain are included). The domain / subdomain name must be already registered in the DNS. Internationalized domain names are supported. Note that the domain / subdomain name you enter here cannot be changed later.
If you would like to receive a "Standard" license as a free supplement to the "Unlimited" license, the "Basic" license as a free supplement to the "Enterprise" license, or the "Developer" license as a free supplement to all other license types, please enter the domain name of your development server. You can also request those supplementary licenses after purchase.
Enter your company's name. If you are a freelancer, please enter your first and last name.
Select your country.
BY TICKING ON THIS       CHECKBOX, YOU CONFIRM THAT YOU HAVE READ, UNDERSTAND AND AGREE TO THE LICENSE AGREEMENT AND ITS TERMS AND CONDITIONS BELOW.

Please note that you do not need a PayPal account to purchase AJAX-ZOOM in many countries. You can also pay with a credit card accepted in your country. After the payment is processed and confirmed, you will automatically receive an email with the invoice and the license key. The email goes to the PayPal email address you are using to make the payments. Should this email is not delivered to you, check your spam folder (if such one exists), and if you don't find anything there, contact us to immediately receive a copy of the bill with your license key.

If you prefer not to pay via PayPal or PayPal is not present in your country, request a PDF invoice and pay via bank transfer. As soon as we receive your payment, which can last a couple of days, we will send you the license key by email. To get the (proforma) invoice, send us your order. Thank you.

5. Full Versions

This paragraph applies to You only, if You have paid the fee for a Full Version License, specified at www.ajax-zoom.com; unless explicitly stated differently in this paragraph all terms and conditions of this License Agreement remain valid.

5.1 Full Versions

Subject to the terms and conditions of this License Agreement, Licensor hereby grants You a worldwide, non-exclusive, perpetual right to use AJAX-ZOOM Software within one internet domain on a per customer basis; www.example.com and example.com is one internet domain; de.example.com (subdomain) is another one.

To avoid any doubts: You are not allowed to serve domains other than licensed within an iframe, frameset, embed AJAX-ZOOM in applications, which do not show the URL using proxy servers or similar. An iframe license to your own domain(s) can be purchased separately. See also paragraph 3.2 (Services). Please contact the support to get an obligation-free quotation.

Changing the domain name(s) after purchase is not possible.

There are different License Types named "Simple", "Basic", "Standard", "Business", "Corporate", "Enterprise" and "Unlimited". These Licenses mainly differ in the amount of images, which are displayed on Your internet domain within AJAX-ZOOM software. By purchasing one of the full versions and use of AJAX-ZOOM You agree not to exceed the amount of images limited by the purchased License Type.

On "multistore" systems such as Prestashop or Shopware, where the subshops / multistore shops are operated on a server system with shared cache, the license of each subshop with a different domain or subdomain name must cover the number of images for all subshops with the different domain or subdomain names configured on that "multistore" system. This does not affect e.g. language subshops located under same domain (e.g. example.com/de and example.com/en). Additional domain / subdomain names within a "multistore" system are discountable. Please contact the support to get an obligation-free quotation.

Please note, that the new "Simple" License type does not include the multi-resolution, image tiling feature. For the "Simple" License, the "simpleMode" is instantly enabled and on full zoom or appropriate conditions, the original sized images are loaded.

For "Basic", "Standard", "Business" license types, the "simpleMode" is not available. The "Unlimited" License type can instantly switch between "simpleMode" and multi-resolution tiling feature depending on the resolution of the image. This threshold is adjustable.

5.2 License Fee

All published prices are subject to be changed at any time and without any prior notice. Successful online transaction provided published prices constitute a valid offer in the moment of purchase of a Full Version License. All published prices are without VAT. Depending on European Union law VAT (value added tax) might be added.

Within European countries (EU) all offers exclusively address professional customers which have a valid VAT-ID; as a provider of web development services You can purchase Licenses for your customers domains.

5.3 Delivery

Upon paying the fee for a Full Version License, it is Licensor's obligation to deliver a License Key. The License Key can only be delivered by email specified during transaction and within five working days after receipt of the payment. By using electronic payments such as PayPal the License Key is usually delivered immediately after the payment is confirmed.

The AJAX-ZOOM software package is delivered via download on www.ajax-zoom.com; it can be freely downloaded and tested before purchasing one of the Full Versions Licenses.

5.4 Support

The Licensor provides unlimited access to technical support via email. Contrary to paragraph 3.3 Licensor guarantees the provision of technical support for at least 30 days after the purchase of a Full Version License. This guarantee does not imply that a particular problem will be solved by the support. Technical support does not include any customization or installation services. These services can be subject of separate agreement.

5.5 Version Updates and Upgrades

  • Upgrades to generally available bug fix- and minor releases are free.
  • Upgrades to major releases within one year from the date of purchase are free of charge. If You purchased AJAX-ZOOM License within one year and two years period before the date of major release, the price paid for the older License accounts to 50%.
  • Upgrades within different License Types as stated in 5.1 are only possible to "Business", "Corporate", "Enterprise" or "Unlimited" Licenses. In this case, the License Fee paid for a smaller License Type accounts to 50%. Downgrades to any License Type or upgrades to "Simple" license are not possible. Calculation example: upgrade from "Standard" License to "Corporate" -> purchased price "Standard" €199, price "Corporate" €549; upgrade price: 549 - 199 * 0.5 = 449.50; for upgrading please contact the support.
