The process of purchasing
Everything starts with the Activation in the Market. When you buy a product you do not actually get the product itself but the right to use it an unlimited number of times, but on a limited number of computers. This parameter is set for each paid product individually and it is disabled for free products.
After one activation you can use the product on a computer without any restrictions. You will not be able to download the copy of the product on another computer. If you installed the file manually, you will not open it either. Number of activations can be found on the page with a detailed description of the product in the column with its specifications (described above).
For example, you have decided to buy Stock & Commodities 05/2014 magazine, you can activate it 10 times. It means, that you will be able to read it on any 10 computers. You can open it any number of times.
Even if you have lost the file on any of these computers, you can download it free from the MetaTrader Market. Just go to the Market - Purchases. However, if you want to read your magazine from the 11th computer, you will have to pay.
