incremental purchase of licenses

Do you guys have documentation on incremental purchases of licenses?  For example,  If a company purchases for requirement of (25 JIRA licenses at $1200 in January) and then has requirement for additional (25  JIRA license in June) what are the options? 

Would company pay another $1200 for June reqs or would they pay the difference from initial purchase?  Another way of illustrating question....

Option 1: 

Jan - pay 1200 (25 user license)

Jun - pay 1200 (25 user license)

Total spent 2400 (for 50 licenses)


Option 2:

Jan - pay 1200 (25 user license)

Jun - pay 1000 (25 user license)

Total spent 2200 (for 50 licenses)


Thanks for the help.

Actually, contact directly - they're quite amenable and will generally set up something that works for both you and them.

Imagine a similar case to the one you've described (I've used different numbers to make it a bit more clear).  25 licences in January, and you want increase to 100 in June.  You've paid for 25 for 1 year.  After 6 months, you jump to 100.  Atlassian will charge you for 100 licences now, but whether the bill is actually 75 for 6 months, or 100 for a year (more up front, but essentially extending the original 25 for an extra 6 months and getting a full year at 100) is probably negotiable.  

(Licences are not incremental though, they're tiered)

Hey Angela

Here you can check all license types available and how to use them.

In case you need to change them before complete 1 year, you will need to contact Atlassian Sales Team and ask for a quote for your specific case, since it can change according to the case.

Hope it helps!
