Find out where you can purchase fully legal Microsoft Office licenses at discounted prices. 8. One more point. Be careful when buying Microsoft Office Home and Student. Not because it might be illegal. But because it has a very restrictive license that makes Office Home and Student unsuitable for all professional activities. When you read the license that came with Office Home and Student, it says it can`t be used for commercial, nonprofit, or revenue-generating activities. If you need to use Microsoft Office for charitable, religious, or similar charities) or Microsoft Office for commercial activities, avoid purchasing Microsoft Office Home and Student. Because Microsoft Office Home & Student is limited to home activities and students, we don`t offer Microsoft Office Home & Student. You will not find it on our website. Instead, we offer and recommend Microsoft Office Standard and Microsoft Office Professional Plus.
By the way, the latest, Office Professional Plus, is the most powerful suite in Microsoft`s Office lineup and the most popular version of Office we sell. It is rich in programs, including Microsoft Outlook, Microsoft Publisher, and Microsoft Access. Microsoft Office remains the gold standard for Office applications, but a Microsoft Office license can cost a fortune. A year after its release, Microsoft Office 2021 Home & Business still costs just under $250 for a single PC license. In fact, in many cases, you might come across products from the so-called gray market. Fortunately, however, there are reliable providers that manage both legal and compliant licenses. Speaking of free desktop software, you can also find every component of Office for free on mobile devices. Again, this isn`t necessarily about getting an Office license, but it`s still beneficial if you want to save money legally. The resale of Electronic Software Download (ESD) licenses retrieved from decommissioned machines, for example in cases where companies migrate to the cloud, is a practice governed by the judgment of the Court of Justice of the European Union (C-128/2011). This proves that purchasing a license key for an ESD product from Mr Key Shop and similar suppliers is 100% legal.
Other things to keep in mind.5 OEM software stands for Original Equipment Manufacturer. OEM software is intended for computer manufacturers. They install OEM software on the computers they build. A Microsoft OEM license is the most restrictive type of license. For example, OEM software cannot be sold without the hardware (computer). When the hardware dies, the OEM software dies with it. In other words, OEM software cannot be legally transferred to another computer. If you are not a computer manufacturer and someone sells you Microsoft OEM software without the hardware, you are using the software illegally.

Trust seals are images on a website designed to build trust in the customer so that they are more likely to buy.
For example: “100% Guarantee”, “Lowest Price Guarantee”, “Shop with confidence”.

No relationship whatsoever. So, don`t think that because a website has trusted brands, that any Microsoft software it sells has to be legitimate. Because that would be a false assumption.

The line “We are cheap because we sell large quantities” is false. Typically, Microsoft offers very small discounts.

Companies like Dell and HP can get better discounts than anyone else. But they play in a different league. For example, Dell`s revenue in 2016 was $54 billion. But no chance for the smallest fish.
