The MoneyWell 3 FAQ

Updated on Monday, October 17th to reflect the end of the Preview Sale.

Q: How much does MoneyWell 3 cost?

The regular price is $60 USD. We also offer upgrade pricing for anyone with a license key for a previous version. The upgrade price is $40 USD. See following question for more on that.

Q: Is there upgrade pricing?

Yes! Upgrade pricing is always available to anyone who has previously purchased or licensed a copy of MoneyWell, even if you skipped a version. For Direct customers, visit the MoneyWell 3 Upgrade Checkout page. For Mac App Store customers, forward a copy of your email receipt from Apple. Upgrade pricing is $40 USD.

Q: Will MoneyWell 3 be on the Mac App Store?

Yes, although our plans have changed a bit on this front. We initially planned to submit to Apple as soon as 3.0 was ready. We are now investigating making version 3 a free download with a single in-app purchase to unlock the full version.

This change has a few advantages. First it will match the distribution model we use for the Direct version. We think it makes sense for people to have the opportunity to try the software before committing to it. While this has always been possible through the Direct version not everyone is aware of or willing to go that route. The second benefit is it should be easier to move between the Direct and App Store versions as needed.

These changes may cause some delay in getting through the App Store approval process so we can’t give a timeline on when it will be available.

Q: I just purchased MoneyWell. Do I need to pay again?

If you purchased on or after June 1st, 2015 your MoneyWell 2 license key will work in MoneyWell 3 as well. No need to pony up any more of your hard-earned cash!

If you purchased via the Mac App Store, contact us with a copy of your email receipt from Apple and we’ll gladly issue you a license for the Direct version. Once MoneyWell 3 is available on the Mac App Store we will be investigating ways to make this process a bit more straight-forward.

Q: What are the system requirements?

You need Mac OS X 10.7.5 Lion or newer to run MoneyWell 3. For best results we recommend El Capitan (10.11) or Sierra (10.12).

If you’re currently running MoneyWell 2 then you’re all set as MoneyWell 3 has the same system requirements.

Q: Can I still buy/run MoneyWell 2?

Yes, you can still download and run MoneyWell 2. We no longer sell version 2 license keys on our Direct store but a version 3 license key will work with version 2. Additionally, we will continue to sell MoneyWell 2 on the Mac App Store until version 3 is approved to replace it.

Q: What about updates?

All updates, including the final 3.0 build, will be delivered through the in-app updater as well as through our site.
