Definition of Shareware

Shareware is an existing marketing method which allows you to try top-quality software before you pay the author. With Shareware, you cannot be disappointed spending money for a program that's not right for you.

If you continue to use the program, you must send the author a registration payment which may entitle you to technical support, printed manual, bonus programs, and more. Your payment supports authors, allowing them to continue writing newer and better Shareware software.
