Buying Omni applications for Mac

All of our Omni applications for Mac are available as a standalone purchase for a one-time fee, or as a monthly/annual subscription.

The standalone traditional license option lets you purchase the current version of our Mac application (this includes any same-version updates) upfront with a one-time fee. This purchase does not include new major version releases (though we provide a discount for folks that would like to upgrade).

The subscription option is a great way to get one of our applications on all of your devices––Mac, iPhone, and iPad––for one price. Subscribing gives you the option to pay monthly or yearly for access to OmniFocus, OmniGraffle, OmniOutliner, or OmniPlan — and also includes any new versions we ship in the future.

All Omni applications for Mac are sold both through the Omni Store and Apple’s Mac App Store.

Omni Account

An Omni Account is required in order to start a trial, make a standalone purchase, or purchase a subscription. This means no matter where you download and purchase our app, your Omni Account will keep track of your trials and purchases. Read more on Omni Accounts here).

This process applies to all our apps!

The buying options and purchasing process detailed in this article is the same for all of our paid applications. The screenshots below use OmniPlan for illustration purposes, but the same steps are applicable to users purchasing OmniFocus, OmniGraffle, or OmniOutliner.



Standalone Purchase

Discounts are available for customers who purchased an earlier version of our Mac apps. In order to receive an upgrade discount, you’ll need to purchase the new application in the same store that you purchased the earlier version from. We are unable to migrate customers from the App Store to our Omni Store — or from the Omni Store to the App Store. Here’s how to check where your earlier purchase was made. Standalone purchases are eligible for a 30-day refund.

Omni Store Standalone Purchase

Registering a License Key

If you purchased an Omni applications for Mac through The Omni Store before June 2020, or purchased the application via our Education store or our Gift and Resale license store, Omni has issued you a two-part, 23-character license code. These licenses can be registered to your Omni Account for ease of use in the future. Registering a license key to your Omni Account provides many benefits, most notably that you won’t have to continue to keep track of a license code going forward - instead, you’ll simply sign in with your Omni Account to activate new apps. Other benefits include seeing your lifetime purchase history, synchronized trial periods, and being able to find discounted upgrade pricing at a glance.

License keys can be registered to your Omni Account via the Omni Account management page, or via current versions of the Mac application.

Important Note

These instructions assume that you are registering a license in an application which has been set up on your Mac previously. If this is your first time launching the application on this Mac, you will need to either Sign in or Sign Up with an Omni Account when prompted and temporarily run the application in Trial Mode, or run the app in Free Viewer mode before following the steps below.

To register a license key via the Mac application:

  1. Launch the Omni Mac app, open the application menu in the menu bar, and select the Manage Omni Account and Purchases… menu item to open the Omni Account menu (note, if you have never licensed this copy of the Omni Mac app, this menu item may be titled Unlock OmniApp).
