This article provides information about re-selling NI products and registering second-hand purchases of NI products.
Selling a Native Instruments Product
You can sell your NI product after unregistering its license from your user account. You will receive a License Transfer ID, which enables the new buyer to import the product to his / her user account. Sellers can find detailed instructions in this article.
Buying a Second-Hand NI Product
After buying a second-hand NI product you will receive a License Transfer ID by the seller. You can register the product with this ID to your own user account. Buyers of second-hand NI products can find detailed instructions in this article. If you haven't received a Transfer ID, because you have no contact to the previous owner, please read this article.
Can I Resell my Hardware and Software Separately?
Product packages consisting of hardware and software bundles can only be sold or given to third parties free of charge as a whole. The individual components of a bundle may not be sold or transferred separately. The software activation requires the prior registration of the hardware. Therefore, the software can not be sold separately from the hardware.
In detail, this means:
- KOMPLETE KONTROL S-Series Keyboards and the KOMPLETE 11 SELECT sofware bundle belong together.
- MASCHINE controllers, their respective MASCHINE software version and the included KOMPLETE 11 SELECT software bundle belong together.
- TRAKTOR KONTROL controllers and their respective TRAKTOR software version belong together.
EDU and NFR licenses Information
EDU and NFR product versions cannot be resold or transferred. Please refer to our Terms & Conditions for more information.
If a product is removed from your user account, all product upgrades which are based on this product will become invalid. In this case, the NI Registration Support staff will contact you before deleting a product from your user account. For instance, if you upgraded KOMPLETE 11 to KOMPLETE 11 ULTIMATE, you cannot remove KOMPLETE 11 from your account without KOMPLETE 11 ULTIMATE becoming invalid.
Third-party (OEM) products license transfers
The license transfer of third-party (OEM) is carried out by the manufacturer. Please contact the manufacturer of your library to arrange a license transfer. If the manufacturer is referring to Native Instruments, please ask for a written authorisation confirming that we can delete the registration.
