        Licensing Options

        GreenSock’s standard “No Charge” license is very permissive (it even covers most commercial uses), but “Business Green” Club GreenSock memberships come with a comprehensive commercial license plus time-saving bonus plugins and tools.

        Benefits

        Most developers find that GSAP’s workflow features alone save them so much time that the license pays for itself literally in a matter of days. After factoring in the bonus plugins and the performance boost, the expense quickly turns into profit.

        Business License

        Our paid license is only necessary in projects that you sell to multiple end users. That's it. Even if you charge your client a million dollars for whatever you create for them, it's fine to use GreenSock tools under the standard license as long as it's a one-off project.

        Enterprise Level

        We realize that some legal departments can be quite picky and enterprise institutions have a unique set of needs, so if our standard "BusinessGreen" license isn't quite what you need, check out our Enterprise Licensing page.

        What's Covered?

        license

        standard

        business

        Usage in 100% free apps, games, sites, and other software even if you charge a fee to develop these products

        This includes advertising, internal sites and tools, promotional web sites, free software, and pretty much everything that isn't sold to multiple end users.

        Distribution of GreenSock files as a part of your Work Product

        Even in open source projects, as long as you leave the source files unedited and recognize that the GreenSock files are subject to their own license. Only BusinessGreen members can distribute the members-only bonus plugins (like ThrowPropsPlugin), and solely to be used as a part of their Work Product.

        Usage in web sites or products that require a fee to use or join (NetFlix.com, Ancestry.com, eHarmony.com, etc.)

        Usage in games or products that are sold to multiple end users

        Usage in games or other apps that use micro-transactions for optional features/upgrades

        An example of a micro-transaction is when a user can optionally pay to unlock a certain feature in a free game/app, or a gambling site where the user can technically visit for free, but they may choose to pay to place bets or play games.

        Usage of members-only tools like ThrowPropsPlugin, Physics2DPlugin, etc.

        One of the nice things about becoming a member is that you gain access to some useful tools that create eye-catching effects, smooth your workflow, and generally save a lot of time and hassle. See the Club GreenSock page for details.

        Business-Friendly

        GreenSock’s dual licensing model keeps it extremely accessible and completely free for the vast majority of use cases while at the same time providing a small funding mechanism that sustains ongoing support, innovation, and sustainability. The web is littered with abandoned “open source” projects, but GreenSock has a years-long track record of commitment to the platform. Some of the largest companies in the world trust GreenSock tools in their business-critical applications every day.
