Reacher Licenses
Last updated: March 21, 2020

Reacher provides its core technology under a dual-licensing model: open-source and commercial.
These two licenses apply to the core technology of Reacher, which is composed of:

1. Reacher Open-Source License

The open source license is designed for you to use Reacher to build open source and personal projects. The reacher open source license is AGPL-3.0, or Affero General Public License, version 3. The AGPL-3.0 has many terms, but the most important is how it is sticky when you distribute your work publicly. From the GPL FAQ:
If you release the modified version to the public in some way, the GPL requires you to make the modified source code available to the program's users, under the GPL.
Releasing your project that uses Reacher under the AGPL-3.0, in turn, requires your project to be licensed under the AGPL-3.0. If you are okay with this, feel free to use Reacher under the AGPL-3.0, without purchasing a commercial license.

2. Commercial License

The commercial license is designed to for you to use Reacher in commercial products and applications, without the provisions of the AGPL-3.0. With the commercial license, your code is kept propietary, to yourself. If you want to use Reacher to develop commercial sites, themes, projects, and applications, the commercial license is the appropriate license.

Purchasing a Commercial License

Purchasing takes one minute, just head to https://reacher.email/pricing and sign-up for the Commercial License. Our purchasing form accepts credit cards and uses Stripe as the payment processor. Once purchased, you’ll receive a commercial license PDF and you will be all set to use Reacher in your commercial applications.
With the purchase of a commercial license:
  • You may use Reacher in as many commercial applications you like.
  • Each license terminates one month after the purchase. To continue using Reacher under the Commercial License, you need to continue paying for the monthly subscription.
  • You may use Reacher in your own commercial applications and products. For example: bulk email list cleaners, email marketing tools, spam sign-up detection tools, LinkedIn scrapers etc.
  • Customers and users of your products do not need to purchase their own license — so long as they are not developing their own commercial products with Reacher.
Commercial Licenses are limited to 8 team members. A team member is someone on your team working on a project that uses Reacher. To use the Commercial License in teams and organizations larger than 8 team members, please contact us using the email below.
