To purchase a Max license as a gift, place your order anonymously on our online shop. This means that you will not sign in or create a cycling74.com account.
If you are purchasing from a country in the European Union, you will be subject to VAT which is a kind of tax on your purchase. Unfortunately, Cycling '74 cannot control this tax.
If you are exempt from paying VAT, you can provide a valid VAT ID at the time of purchase. For those providing a valid ID, no tax will be collected, and the ID will be included on the invoice upon purchase completion. If you neglect or are unable to enter a VAT ID at the time of the purchase, contact our order processing service (questionacharge.com) with the order reference / ID and the valid VAT ID.
Returns accepted within 30 days if you purchased a full-priced license of Max. Discounted copies of Max are not eligible for return or refund. Discounted copies include: Student, teacher, crossgrade, school, and NFR.
Returns are not accepted for the Cycles and M products, and for C74 Recordings.
Returns of Cyclops, Pluggo, Mode, Hipno, Radial, UpMix and Octirama licenses are not permitted.
