YNAB is no longer available on the Mac App Store. If you purchased from the Mac App Store previously, the following article may apply to you.
If you buy it on the Mac App Store, you're allowed to use it on all Macs you own that can access the App Store. Buying directly from us allows you to use it on all of your Mac and Windows computers.
Open the Mac App Store, then click on “Updates”. If there is an update to YNAB 4 available, you’ll see it listed. If you purchased YNAB from us, it will automatically prompt you to update if it's running and there is an update available.
No problem. We just need to get proof that you purchased on the Mac App Store, and we’ll take care of the rest.
If you have the email receipt you got from Apple:
Forward that email to [email protected]. Make the subject of the email “Register Mac App Store Purchase”. We’ll respond with everything you will need to get YNAB installed on your other computers.
NOTE: Please avoid attaching the receipt email when you contact us. Instead just forward the receipt email itself as is directly to [email protected] and skip changing the subject line if you'd like.
Download the full featured trial and get started today (you can paste in your full key later when we reply to your email).
If you don’t have that receipt any longer:
Note: Mac App Store web order details can only be seen in the iTunes purchase history. They are not visible within the Mac App Store application.
Unfortunately, The Mac App Store only lets you download YNAB 4 and its updates if you purchased it on the Mac App Store. There is no way for us to transfer purchases you made with us, to the Mac App Store.
As with all Mac App Store apps, the Mac App Store version is “sandboxed.” This means that:
Other than that, there are not any differences in functionality.
There are serious advantages to purchasing directly from us. 1) You can install YNAB on all of your Macs and Windows machines, 2) All of your purchase goes toward helping us keep the lights on (versus paying Apple a 30% cut).
