Frequently Asked Questions
(These questions only relate to Timing's purchase process.
For other questions, see our general FAQ.)
Is this a one-time, yearly, or monthy fee?
What does "Free Updates for X Months" mean?
After you purchase Timing once, you can use the app for as long as you want.
However, it is not possible for us to provide free updates for life.
Therefore, each Timing license comes with 12 months of free updates by default.
If you install a version of Timing that has been released after your free update period has ended, you will be asked to downgrade to an older version or purchase a discounted update license (19/29/49, respectively) to get another year of updates.
We believe this combines the best of both worlds:
Your purchase lets you use Timing for as long as you like,
and we as developers are incentivized to provide updates that you consider worth purchasing an update for.
If you would rather not have to worry about updates at all, we offer a premium "supporter's edition" of Timing Expert on request, which includes unlimited updates. Please contact us for details.
Which version should I choose?
Timing 2 comes in three editions.
- If you only want to know how you spend time on your Mac, the Productivity edition is the right choice for you.
It will track time spent in apps, lets you assign those activities to projects, and create rules.
It also computes a productivity score so you know exactly how you are doing.
- If you also want to track off-computer time, group blocks of time into tasks, or bill your time, consider the Professional edition.
In addition to all the features of the Productivity edition, it lets you create tasks and even makes suggestions on blocks of time that belong together.
It also lets you start and stop manual timers and generate reports suitable for sending to your clients.
- If you are a heavy power user or want maximum control over your time tracking, the Expert edition is for you.
It adds the option to save filters (in addition to projects) to further analyze how you spend your time.
It also offers additional options for customizing reports, and lets you control Timing (and extract data) via AppleScript.
By the way, the feature list at the top of this page is complete — only the features listed specifically for Professional and Expert are exclusive to those editions.
How many Macs is one Timing license good for?
You can use Timing on up to two, three, or five (for Timing Productivity, Professional, and Expert, respectively) personal Macs belonging to you or your family (as long as only one family member uses Timing for business purposes). If you are using Timing in a business, each employee needs their own Timing license. (E.g. you can't use the same Productivity license on two Macs used by different employees.)
Can I upgrade to a different edition of Timing later?
Yes. Upgrading is a manual process and costs the difference between the two options, plus 10.
When you need to do so, please contact us.
Is Timing 2 available on the Mac App Store?
No, and we have no plans right now to change that.
The Mac App Store's sandboxing rules would restrict the details Timing can track for you, resulting in a worse experience.
In addition, paid upgrades (which are required to keep this business sustainable, with frequent app updates) are not supported on the Mac App Store, either.
Do you offer bulk discounts?
Yes. We offer bulk discounts on orders of three licenses or more.
Please contact us for details.
Is there a discount for students, faculty members or nonprofit organizations?
Yes. Please contact us with a proof of your student/faculty/nonprofit status more details.
Please note that educational licenses must not be used for commercial purposes.
I am a European business customer. How can I have VAT deducted from my purchase?
Simply click the "Add VAT Number" button during checkout, before entering your payment information:
If you have already purchased, please contact help *at* paddle.com with your VAT information and receipt number so our payment provider can refund the VAT for you. In addition, your receipt email also contains a link to e.g. customize your address in the receipt.
Note that our payment provider is based in the UK. Thus, UK-based businesses can not have VAT deducted this way but can get it refunded from the UK tax authorities instead.
By the way, did you know that we offer bulk discounts on purchases of three licenses or more?
Contact us for details.
Upgrading from Timing 1
What's new in Timing 2?
Timing 2 has been rewritten from scratch and comes with a completely new interface,
as well as tons of new features.
Please see this page for details.
I have purchased Timing 1 before — do I get a discount on Timing 2?
If you have purchased Timing 1 in 2017, you are eligible for a free upgrade to Timing 2 Expert edition.
If you have purchased Timing 1 before 2017, you can still upgrade to Timing 2 at discounted prices of 19/29/49, respectively.
How can I claim my discount?
Simply install Timing 2 on your Mac and complete the onboarding.
If you are eligible for a free upgrade, Timing should automatically tell you as soon as the app has launched.
Otherwise, open the "Timing" menu, then use the "Purchase Timing…" option (might also be called "Request Free License…").
After purchasing, please allow for a few minutes for your registration email to arrive, then click the activation link in that email.
If you encounter any problems with this process, please contact us.
In case the order page that you opened via the steps above does not show the proper prices (free or 19/29/49, respectively),
please make sure that you have Timing 1 installed and, if you didn't purchase it from the Mac App Store, that your Timing 1 license is activated.
After that, restart Timing 2 and follow the steps above again.
If you still aren't getting the discounted prices, please contact us.
I am getting a "License not found" error?
During Timing 2's early access phase, we let you generate temporary licenses for a while.
The early access phase has ended, so these licenses are no longer valid.
If you'd like to keep using Timing, please purchase a license above.
If you have purchased Timing 1 before, please see here for our upgrade discounts.
