Purchasing & Licensing FAQ

A Unique Purchasing Model

Atlassian is different from most companies when it comes to how we sell on-premise and Cloud software. Our goal is to build incredible, affordable tools that people can try before buying. To do this, we rely on a slightly different sales model. Here's what makes Atlassian different:

We're here to help at any time, so please contact us.

Evaluations

1. Can I evaluate a product for free before purchasing it?

Server products - You can evaluate a product for 30 days (can be extended to a maximum of 90 days) before purchase, allowing you to see and use Atlassian software before you proceed with a purchase. Atlassian provides a fully functional server version of each Atlassian product for evaluation. What you'll be using during your evaluation is what you'll be getting when you buy.

To generate an evaluation license key, or extend your evaluation, simply log into My Atlassian. From here, click on 'New Evaluation License' and follow the instructions to associate your Server ID. A new evaluation license will be generated that you enter into your server product.

All installed evaluations include access to our technical support resources. Evaluation keys are for the highest user tier available and are compatible across stand-alone product/apps user tiers and license types.

Atlassian Cloud - Atlassian offers fully functional evaluations of our Cloud products for a period of 7 days (can be extended to a maximum of 37 days upon request). When your evaluation expires, you can continue using Atlassian Cloud by adding a credit card from your My Atlassian account. Should you opt to discontinue use of our Cloud services, we offer full refunds during the first month of paid service following the end of the evaluation, if you decide Atlassian Cloud isn't for you.  After the first paid month, we are unable to offer refunds or exchanges.

Although Atlassian Cloud evaluations include access to Technical Support, please note that we do not provide data backups for Evaluations, only for monthly and annual subscribers.

2. How do I extend my server product evaluation?

We're happy to extend your server product evaluation period for up to 90 days. To generate a new evaluation key:

  1. Login to my.atlassian.com. You'll arrive on the Licenses page by default.
  2. Click 'New Evaluation License' to create a new key with an additional 30 days evaluation time.
  3. Apply this key to your server under the Administration > License Details page.

3. How is the software distributed? Will I receive a CD-ROM or shrink-wrapped product?

Atlassian has adopted the Electronic Software Distribution (ESD) model. Consequently, software is available only via HTTP download. Atlassian does not distribute any software on CD, DVD or as a shrink-wrapped product. As all commercial and academic licenses include 12 months of software maintenance (support and updates), the ESD model is the best way to stay up-to-date with the numerous software releases made available to you. 

4. After I purchase a license, do I need to reinstall the software?

There is no need to reinstall your software. Your existing installation can be updated by copying your purchased license key into the 'License Details' page of your product's administration console.

Pricing and Discounts

1. How much do Atlassian products cost?

2. What training solutions are available?

Atlassian offers instructor-led training courses for Jira, Confluence and Dev Tools. Each course is delivered in our virtual classroom (via WebEx) either privately or publicly. Please visit the Training page for further details.

3. Does Atlassian offer any discounts?

We do not offer any discounts. Our goal is to make awesome applications available at the best price and to treat every customer equally. Our products start at just $10 for 10 users. We like to build discounts directly into the prices we publish openly to everyone so there's no guessing or uncertainty around what you're buying and how much it costs.

4. Are there any discounts for government organizations?

Discounts are offered to United States Federal, State and Local government organizations through Atlassian's Government Aggregator Carahsoft. You can contact Carahsoft at atlassian@carahsoft.com or visit http://www.carahsoft.com/atlassian. All other International Government organizations, purchasing Atlassian software, are required to purchase commercial licenses.

5. Are there any discounts for academic institutions?

Academic pricing is available to qualified academic institutions for Atlassian's server products.

6. Does Atlassian offer reseller discounts?

Atlassian does not offer any reseller discounts. Discounts are only offered to official Atlassian Partners.

Ordering

1. What is the process for ordering Atlassian products?

All orders are placed via the secure online Quote & Order Form. If you are a reseller, please check the box marked "I am a reseller purchasing on behalf of my customer" during the checkout process. Once that is done, a quote or invoice will be sent via email. If credit card details are not provided through the secure online form, the quote can be paid by mailed check, ACH (US customers) or direct bank transfer.

As Atlassian is Net-0, license and source downloads (if applicable) will only be made available online when full payment is confirmed. Please be aware that we can only accept credit card payments for $10 Starter Licenses and the Atlassian Cloud monthly payment plan.

2. How can I request a quote?

Requesting an obligation-free quote is easy! Just use our Quote & Order Form, which allows you to pay for your software immediately or save a price quote for later. Only quotes submitted through our online form are considered valid, screen prints of the shopping cart are not the same as an official quote.

Please note: Starter Licenses must be purchased with a credit card.

3. How can I pay an outstanding quote or invoice?

You can pay an outstanding quote or invoice by credit card using our secure online payment form or any of the other accepted payment methods (mailed check, bank transfer). You can find complete payment details on the first page of your quote/invoice, as well as our How to pay page.

4. How can I submit a Purchase Order (PO number) to Atlassian?

To get started, please complete our secure online Quote & Order Form. On the final confirmation page, check the PO number box to add your PO number. The PO number will appear on your quote or invoice (valid for 30-days). If you already have a quote or invoice, you can update the quote or invoice through your My Atlassian account via the Orders tab.

Atlassian is happy to reference a PO number on a quote or invoice for your internal tracking and record keeping. However, we do not accept purchase orders as a form of payment nor the terms and conditions commonly associated with purchase orders. We provide fully functional evaluation licenses for you to use while payment is being arranged. We are able to keep our prices low by offering standard product agreements to all our customers and do not offer commercial credit.

Our payment terms are Net 0-day and we accept payment by bank transfer, mailed check, and credit card. Details can be found on the first page of a quote or invoice. Once payment is received in full, we will issue the license keys and email the nominated billing and technical contacts.

5. Can I request a quote or invoice in a currency other than US Dollars?

Atlassian is able to generate quotes in both US Dollars (USD) or Australian Dollars (AUD), however, AUD is reserved for customers in Australia. 

To request a quote in AUD, please Contact Us, and we would be happy to assist. 

Australian dollar quotes and invoices are calculated using an exchange rate that includes a currency fluctuation margin.

Please note that we are unable to issue quotes or invoices in Australian dollars for orders containing Atlassian Cloud, Starter Licenses or Marketplace apps.

6. Are there any applicable taxes?

Atlassian is an Australia-based company. As such, Atlassian must collect GST from all Australian based customers. As of 01 July 2012, Atlassian will collect VAT from customers within the European Union who have not supplied a valid VAT ID, in accordance with EU tax legislation. 

Tax Treaties: As an Australian company, Atlassian is exempt from withholding taxes in some countries like the United States. For compliance reasons, U.S. customers may wish to obtain a copy of the W-8BEN-E form; or for non-U.S. customers, the Australian Taxation Office Certificate of Residency for Atlassian.

Prices may be affected by organizations based in countries that do not have an income tax treaty with Australia and are therefore required to impose withholding taxes. If this applies to you, Australian taxation law requires us to provide proof of tax withheld. As such, we will require documentation from you which states the amount of tax withheld (your tax office should be able to supply the relevant documents). Please contact our Sales Team to discuss the potential implications.

7. How can I make changes to a quote?

Simply log into your My Atlassian account to edit your quote. Once logged in, select 'Orders' at the top of the page. There, you'll see all quotes tied to your email address. Click the pencil icon on the right-hand side, and you'll be able to make any necessary changes. If your quote contains a Cloud subscription or an Enterprise product such as Data Center, please contact us regarding any needed changes.

Payments & Refunds

1. Which payment methods are accepted, and what are your payment terms?

Atlassian accepts the following payment methods:

Credit card*  — (MasterCard, Visa or American Express) via our secure Quote & Order Form (1 to 3 business days). We cannot accept credit card payments for AUD orders. Unfortunately, we're unable to accept payments via Discover cards.

Bank transfer  — Can take up to 7-14 business days for bank transfers to clear through our banking facilities. You can email your remittance advice to remittance@atlassian.com

Mailed check — Can take up to 7-14 business days to be received and processed by our financial institution. We cannot accept checks for AUD orders.

ACH (Automated Clearing House) - Can take between 7-14 business days to process.

Atlassian's payment terms are strictly Net 0-day. This means that the license key(s) or Atlassian Cloud subscription will only be made available after full payment is received. If you have placed your order but find that you are waiting for your organization to make the payment, you can contact us and request a fully-functional evaluation license key to help you cope with any bureaucratic delays.

*Credit card is the only acceptable form of payment for monthly Atlassian Cloud subscriptions.

*Please note that we are unable to issue quotes or invoices in Australian dollars (AUD) for orders containing Atlassian Cloud, Starter Licenses or Marketplace apps.

2. My Visa debit card is showing two transactions, it looks like I was double charged

When possible, we recommend customers do not use Visa debit cards. This is because Visa debit cards place an authorization hold on funds (making them unavailable) for the amount of the purchase. Atlassian settles the transaction immediately (known as "settlement"), but the authorization hold can remain from 1-5 days until it "falls off" depending on Visa's and your bank's policies.

If the funds are not made available 5 days after the transaction, we recommend contacting your bank to see when the authorization hold will drop off.

3. How can I pay an outstanding quote or invoice?

You can pay an outstanding quote or invoice by credit card using our secure online payment form or any of the other accepted payment methods (mailed check, bank transfer). You can find complete payment details on the first page of a quote or invoice and on our How To Pay page.

4. I am in Europe. Will your bank transfer details work?

Only European bank accounts issue IBANs. The number we provide in the quote or invoice can be used as the "IBAN" for your bank transfer. It may also be worthwhile to let your bank know that this is a US Dollar account and that the alpha-numeric number has been supplied and verified by our bank's international payments team.

5. After an order has been placed, how and when can the license key and source be accessed?

Access to your license key(s) and any applicable source code is provided only after the successful receipt and processing of your payment. Once payment is received, the Billing and Technical contact specified on the order can log into their My Atlassian account, and view all corresponding license keys. 

6. Can I get a refund, exchange or upgrade after purchasing a server product license?

Yes, you can request a refund or exchange/upgrade of your commercial or academic server license up to 30 days after the original date of purchase. After the 30-day period, standard pricing for upgrades will apply and exchanges/refunds will not be available.

To request a refund/exchange within 30 days of payment, please contact our Sales Team.

Please Note: Given the charitable nature of funds collected from Starter Licenses, we are unable to offer refunds or exchanges for Starter License purchases.

7. Can I get a refund for Atlassian Cloud?

Refunds for Atlassian Cloud are only available within the first paid month after the evaluation period for monthly subscriptions and within 30 days of payment for annual subscriptions. After these periods we cannot offer refunds.

To cancel your evaluation/subscription for Atlassian Cloud, please follow the instructions below:

  1. Log in to your My Atlassian account, the account page will display. Atlassian Cloud will be listed in the Licenses section.
  2. Click the '+' sign for your Atlassian Cloud subscription, your account management screen will display.
  3. Click the 'Cancel Subscription,' or 'Cancel Evaluation," link to request the cancellation of your account.

The Atlassian Cloud subscription will be terminated at the end of the current billing cycle and your credit card will not be charged again. No credit is offered for canceling an account prior to the end of a billing cycle.

To request a refund during the first month of paid service (following an evaluation) or within 30 days of payment for an annual subscription, please contact our Sales Team.

8. Can I sign up for automatic renewals?

Yes, you can sign up for automatic renewals by credit card to ensure your organization doesn't experience any service interruptions.

To sign up for auto-renew, please follow the instructions below:

  1. Log in to your My Atlassian account, the account page will display.
  2. Click the '>' sign for the Atlassian product you would like to auto-renew.
  3. Click the 'Turn Auto-Renew On'
  4. Select any additional products you would like to auto-renew.

5. Are there any fees that I am responsible for if I choose PayPal?

Buying with PayPal is usually free. There is no charge to open a PayPal account and there is no cost for buying products or services. If your transaction requires a currency conversion, PayPal will use a retail exchange rate (the wholesale cost of foreign currency as denominated by an outside financial institution) plus a conversion service charge. Please see PayPal Currency Conversion and Merchant Fees for more information.

7. Do I need a balance in my PayPal account to use it?

Nope! If you link a bank account to your PayPal account, money is taken directly from your bank account when you make purchases or send money.

8. What do I do if I'm locked out of my PayPal account?

If you are having issues signing into your PayPal account because you forgot your username or password, PayPal can help you recover this information. Please contact PayPal Support for assistance.

US Taxes

US sales tax is only applied to orders addressed to billing customers based in the States listed in Question 2 below, containing purchases or renewals of taxable Atlassian products.

Please Contact Us with your exemption documentation and quote number (AT- XXXXXXX) if you are eligible to claim a sales tax exemption in relation to your existing quote.

Where available, Atlassian recommends providing blanket certificates (covers all orders) which remain in force until revoked in writing or by a tax authority.

2. Where can I find US sales tax exemption forms?

The US sales tax exemption forms applicable to each taxable state can be found below:

If your purchases are U.S. sales tax exempt, please Contact Us with your valid exemption documentation and your quote/order number (AT-XXXXXXX) to avoid being charged U.S. sales tax on future orders.

4. US sales tax was applied to my order, however I can now supply valid exemption documentation covering the period of the purchase. How can I obtain a refund for the US sales tax portion of my payment?

Generally US sales tax will be applied to all taxable orders where valid exemption documentation has not been provided to Atlassian.

However if valid exemption documentation covering the period of the purchase can be supplied, please contact our Sales Team to arrange for the refund of your purchase within 30 days of payment.

After that time, you may contact your local state tax authority or amend your sales tax return to obtain a refund directly from the your local revenue authorities.

5. I'm a Reseller located in a taxable US state, but I'm buying on behalf of a customer who is not located in a taxable US state. Will US sales tax apply?

For Reseller or Partner orders, the application of the US sales is based on the location of the Reseller/Partner and not the location of the customer or technical contact. If a valid reseller exemption certificate has not been supplied at the time of order, then US sales tax will automatically be applied to the order.

Value Added Tax (VAT), Japanese Consumption Tax (JCT) and Goods and Services Tax (GST)

1. Why are you applying VAT, JCT or GST to my order?

a) VAT

In accordance with EU, Iceland, Norwegian, Turkish, and South Korea VAT legislation, VAT will be applied only to orders in those countries where exemption documentation or a valid VAT ID has not been supplied at the time of payment.

VAT in other countries such as Switzerland and South Africa is applicable on all taxable sales where a valid exemption documentation has not been provided to Atlassian prior to payment. 

b) JCT

In accordance with Japanese tax legislation, JCT is applicable on all taxable sales.

Please contact our Sales Team with your VAT ID/exemption documentation and quote number if you would like to apply a VAT ID or exemption status to an existing quote.

c) GST

In accordance with Indian service tax legislation, service tax will be applied only to orders where a valid Permanent Account Number (PAN), Corporate Identification Number (CIN) or Service Tax registration number has not been supplied at the time of payment. Australian customers are subject to 10% GST. 

2. Do you include Tax in the prices listed on the website?

No, the prices listed on our website are in US Dollars and do not include any tax. 

However, quotes generated via the Atlassian Store prior to purchase will state the applicable tax in US Dollars.

Please note:

For customers located in Australia, the tax conversion rate will be displayed on the Tax Invoice, which is issued upon receipt of payment in full.

For customers in the European Union, Norway, Iceland, South Korea, Japan, India, Turkey, and South Africa the equivalent tax will be displayed on the final invoice, which is issued upon receipt of payment in full.

3. The VAT/JCT/GST on my quote is shown in US Dollars. Where can I find the equivalent tax in my local currency?

The equivalent tax in Euros / Norwegian Krone / Icelandic Krona / South Korean Won / Japanese Yen / Turkish Lira / South African Rand will be displayed on the final invoice, which will be issued after full payment has been received.

This is because exchange rates fluctuate constantly and the equivalent tax in the non-USD currency cannot be determined until receipt of payment.

4. I've never had to pay VAT, JCT or GST on my orders before, what has changed?

From time to time, domestic governments introduce new taxes or apply VAT, JCT or GST to new taxable items through new legislation.

To be a good global citizen, Atlassian endeavors to be compliant with all relevant international laws. To uphold our core value of "Don't #@!% the Customer" where possible, Atlassian will go to the additional effort of registering, implementing, collecting and filing local VAT or JCT returns to be compliant with these legal requirements rather than ceasing to sell Atlassian products in a country with new taxes.

5. VAT or GST was applied to my order, however I can now supply my valid VAT ID, PAN, CIN, or GST registration number. How can I obtain a refund for the VAT or GST portion of my payment?

Generally VAT or GST will be applied to all taxable orders where exemption documentation or a valid VAT ID, PAN, CIN, or GST registration number has not been provided to Atlassian.

However, if exemption documentation or a valid VAT ID covering the period of the purchase can be supplied, please contact our Customer Advocate Team to arrange for the refund of your purchase within 30 days of payment.

After that time, customers with a valid VAT ID may claim a refund for VAT paid on business expenses directly from your local tax authority via your business VAT return. You do not need to self-assess VAT on this transaction again under the reverse charge system.

6. I am a Reseller located in a taxable country, but I am buying on behalf of a customer who is not located in a taxable country. Will VAT apply?

a) VAT

For Reseller or Partner orders, the application of the VAT is based on the location of the Reseller/Partner and not the location of the customer or technical contact. If no valid exemption documentation or VAT ID has been supplied at the time of order, then the VAT rate of the Reseller's/Partner's country will be automatically applied to the order.

b) JCT

JCT is applicable for all taxable sales. 

c) GST

For Reseller or Partner orders, the application of GST is based on the location of the Reseller/Partner and not the location of the customer or technical contact. If no valid PAN, CIN or GST registration number has been supplied at the time of order, then GST will be automatically applied to the order.

7. How do I update my My Atlassian (my.atlassian.com) account to include my VAT Number, PAN, CIN or GST registration number?

Visit your Atlassian account profile page. Enter your VAT Number, PAN, CIN or GST registration number in the Tax ID section of "Your Personal Info" and click "Save"

Please note, this is not applicable to JCT

8. How do I update my My Atlassian (my.atlassian.com) account to include my VAT exemption documentation?

Please contact our Sales Team with your exemption documentation and quote number if you would like to apply your tax exemption status to an existing quote.

2. What are the benefits of renewing software maintenance?

Renewing your server software maintenance is entirely optional, but it will ensure your continued access to the following great benefits:

Legendary Support

You'll continue to receive Atlassian's legendary support for another 12 months. Atlassian's support is available to you via our online support system.

Software updates

Our products continue to evolve via frequent and significant updates. If you're after new features, ever improving usability and the latest innovations in issue tracking, active software maintenance ensures you continue to receive all the latest software updates for another 12 months.

Peace of mind

If your team depends on our products for many of its day to day activities, having a guaranteed direct line of contact to a committed support team offers fantastic peace of mind. Renewing ensures that the privileges of software maintenance continue uninterrupted.

Order your renewal today

If you wish to renew your software maintenance, or upgrade your license, simply submit your order using our Quote & Order Form.

3. When does software maintenance start?

  • New license: Your 12-month software maintenance period will commence from the date of payment confirmation.
  • Upgrade: Your 12-month software maintenance will commence from the date of payment confirmation and replaces any active software maintenance of the upgraded license.
  • Software maintenance renewal: Your 12-month software maintenance will commence from the expiration date of the previous maintenance period, regardless of when the maintenance renewal was purchased.

Please note: maintenance renewals commence from the date the previous maintenance period expires, regardless of when the maintenance renewal was purchased.

4. What happens when the included maintenance ends?

After the first 12 months, your software maintenance will expire and you will no longer be able to receive technical support or software updates. Renewing your software maintenance is done purely at your discretion and can be renewed in advance of your maintenance expiration to ensure uninterrupted access to the support and software updates.

As all commercial and academic licenses are perpetual, you can use your software into perpetuity. This means the server product will continue to operate in its current state after the maintenance period expires.

Please note: maintenance renewals commence from the date the previous maintenance period expires, regardless of when the maintenance renewal was purchased.

5. Can maintenance dates be co-termed/synchronized?

Software Maintenance comes in 12-month blocks. If you have purchased multiple Atlassian products on different dates, your maintenance renewal dates can be co-termed/synchronized to the same date, so long as one license renews at least 12 months of software maintenance. To do this, please request a renewal quote by simply clicking the 'Renew' tab in our Atlassian Store. Once your renewal quote has been created, Contact our Customer Advocate Team, and we'll be happy to help!

Please note: Because upgrades and new license purchases include 12 months of maintenance from the date of purchase, they cannot be co-termed to existing licenses for less than 12 months.

6. How can I purchase a maintenance renewal?

Anyone can purchase or request a quote - all that's needed is the Support Entitlement Number (SEN) and the email address of any current contact for the license being renewed. To order a server product software maintenance renewal, please visit our Quote & Order Form and click on the "Renew" tab*. On the Renew tab, you can renew a product that you are associated with or provide us with the details of the product you wish to renew.

Once that is done, a quote or invoice will be sent via email. If credit card details are not provided through the secure online form, the quote can be paid by mailed check, ACH (US customers) or direct bank transfer.  License and any relevant source downloads can be accessed online upon confirmation of payment.

Following payment confirmation, a new license key will be issued. The Billing or Technical contact can access the license key via their My Atlassian account. The existing installation can be updated by copying and pasting the new license key into the "License Details" page of product's administration section.

To request a quote from My Atlassian:

  • Log into my.atlassian.com, the account page will display.
  • Click the '+' sign of your Atlassian product being upgraded, your product management screen will display.
  • In the Actions section click "Renew."
  • Select the product to upgrade using the drop down and "Add to Cart.
  • Review the cart and click "Proceed to Checkout."
  • Complete the Licensee and Organization Details in step 3 of the Quote & Order Form then "Continue."
  • Next, select "Pay now via credit card" or "Get a Quote" then "Review My Order."
  • If the order is accurate click "Submit Order."

The quote or purchase confirmation will be sent to the named billing and technical contact(s).

Please note: Customers can hold a maximum of 3 years worth of active software maintenance for a server product. Atlassian Cloud customers can purchase a 12-month subscription.

*Pricing for software maintenance may be reviewed from time to time. For products whose maintenance is based on an old licensing model, which is no longer available, you will be quoted at the current renewal pricing. At our sole discretion, we may offer a limited-time grandfathering program for server products (not hosted) that we would announce to all customers holding licenses that experienced a change.

7. Atlassian Support End-of-Life Policy

Atlassian supports major versions for two years after the first major iteration of that version was released (for example, we support Jira 6.3.x for 2 years after Jira 6.3.0 was released).

You can find more information and specific EOL dates in our End-of-Life Documentation.

Licensing

1. How are users counted in Atlassian licenses, as named or concurrent?

A user is, by definition, any account with the permission to log into the application. A named user with this permission is counted towards the user limit, whether logged in to the application or not. Our licensing model is not based on concurrent users.

2. Can I purchase a Marketplace app at a User Tier other than that of the parent product?

All Marketplace apps must match (or exceed) the parent product in terms of User Tier. For example, if you license Jira Software at 100-Users, and Confluence at 50-Users, all Jira apps must be licensed at the 100-User Tier, and all Confluence apps must be licensed at the 50-User Tier

3. What are the conditions for an Atlassian Academic License?

The following organizations are eligible for an Atlassian Academic License:

7. Would additional licenses be required if multiple instances of the software were to be installed on a single server?

Yes, additional licenses would be required. Each license permits only the deployment of a single instance of the software in a production environment.

8. What are developer licenses, how are they used?

Developer licenses are available to existing commercial, academic, and select Starter license holders (not available for cloud products) who wish to deploy non-production installations for use in testing and development of the Atlassian software (e.g. version upgrades, customizations to the software, etc) that should not be done on a live production instance.

Developer licenses can also be used for non-production installations of the software deployed on a cold standby server.

This license is provided free of charge and the maintenance expiration of this license will be synchronized to the maintenance expiration date of your product.

The technical contact for the license can generate a developer key by following these steps:

  1. Log in to My Atlassian.
  2. Click the Atlassian product in question - your account management screen will display.
  3. In the Actions section click "View Developer License."
  4. Review the Developer License agreement.
  5. Finally, click "View" to agree. A license key will be presented. Copy and paste this key into your development server.

You may generate more than one license key if running multiple pre-production servers, e.g. development, testing, and QA, servers.

9. Can I combine multiple licenses to increase the number of licensed users I have for a single instance?

Server product licenses cannot be combined to increase the number of users for a single instance. To increase the number of users, you will need to obtain an upgrade to the desired user tier. You can get additional information on upgrades of each respective product: Jira SoftwareJira Core, ConfluenceFisheye, Crucible, Bamboo, Bitbucket, Crowd, Portfolio for JiraCapture for Jira, Team Calendars for Confluence, and SharePoint Connector for Confluence.

Managing My Account
