Is there a discounted upgrade price available for people who own an earlier version?

There is not. Transmit 5 is currently one price for all users. Fun fact: The last time we charged for an update was over seven years ago in 2011.

What about a student discount?

If you’re a student or an educator, we do have a 25% discount available. Should this apply to you, send your details to info@panic.com and we’ll get you set up.

I own Transmit 4. What do I need to do to upgrade?

There’s nothing more you need to do other than to simply purchase a new copy of Transmit 5 from our website or from the app store. Once you download Transmit 5, drag it to your Applications folder, overwriting the previous version. Once Transmit 5 has been installed, your Favorites from Transmit 4 will be automatically imported at first launch.

Note: your Transmit 3 or Transmit 4 serial number will NOT work with Transmit 5. You will receive a new serial number via email after purchasing a copy of Transmit 5.

I’m using an old Mac and want to purchase an older version of Transmit. Where can I do that?

Older versions of the app are no longer for sale, but we would be happy to generate a license for any of the older versions provided that you purchase a copy of the latest version. That way, you’ll have the latest version should you ever upgrade to a newer Mac. If this is something you’d like to do, purchase a copy of Transmit from panic.com, then email transmit@panic.com with your order details.

Can I use Transmit on more than one Mac?

Our licenses are per-user, not per-Mac, so Yes! You can use Transmit on all of your Macs provided you’re the only user. If multiple people will be using Transmit, each person needs their own copy.

Where can I find your license agreement and privacy policy?

You can find our plain-english EULA here, and our Privacy Policy here.


We can refund most purchases provided you contact us within 60 days of purchasing the app. Be sure to include your order information when reaching out.
