* Prices and features subject to change without notice.
Is there an annual license fee?
No! The software license provides for unlimited, royalty free use on your web site. "Royalty free" means that the initial license fee is your only cost for the calculator as it is delivered. There are no annual fees and no royalty fees based upon the number of times it is used! If you wish to have changes made in the future, there is a small fee for additional work on the calculator.
How will you know what I want it to look like?
The initial proof version that you will review before accepting it, is designed with an eye toward incorporating your website's graphics to reflect your company's graphic style.
How do I give feedback about my calculator during development?
While your branded loan calculator is being developed, you will be consulted regarding design issues as they arise. In fact, the entire development process is a continuous conversation.
The development process begins with the creation of an initial proof version which will be delivered to you as an email attachment or offered as a download from our server. You'll be asked to spend some time with the proof and decide how it might be modified to better fit your firm's idea of what you want. Once you have formulated your feedback, you will send it and the requested changes will be implemented if possible. Then another proof will be sent incorporating the feedback. This proof-review-proof-review process may continue until the application is as you wish it to be for distribution.
Can I install my calculator on my web site?
Yes! It is designed for exactly that purpose. You will install it on your website and it will be available in a webpage for your visitors' web browsers.
Where can I read the license agreement?
Information about the calculator licenses is available for review online here: Licensing. There are actually two licenses, the Domain License which allows you to install it on your web domain and the Visitor License which allows your visitors to use it.
Will my custom website calculator be a whole web site?
No. The calculator will not be a web "site". You will install it on a webpage on your site.
How will people use my CustomCalcs™ website calculator?
By simply visiting the webpage where you have installed your calculator, your visitors will be able to use it within their own web browser, just like they use any other webpage on our site.
Will my custom designed calculator contain any advertising for other companies?
No! The calculator will be installed on your website, on your webpage and will be wrapped with your graphics and information in the way you wish when you install it on your website. No one will see advertising for CustomCalcs™ or any other company. The source code will contain copyright information, but this is only visible if someone view the source of a web page.
Are there hyperlinks in the calculator to web sites of other companies?
Only if you want them! The software will contain hyperlinks only to your web site and internet resources (unless you request other links).
Can I try out the custom calculators you've created for other clients?
Yes! There's no better way to see what CustomCalcs™ can do for you than to use the calculators we've designed for other clients. You'll find examples in our Gallery of Online Calculators.
