Price policy changed

We really want Bookmanager to be available for many. That is why from version 2.0 we introduce a new price that is not fixed and defined by you via Pay What You Want scheme ($5 minimum). It no longer goes with Vol.06 Books package. Follow the product link for more information.

Thank you everybody for the feedback

Bookmanager goes free with Vol.06 Books collection, but if you buy it separately you will get a $40 discount to this volume. All updates with new features are also free. Please contact us at [email protected] for any questions or ideas for future releases.
