Josh:
I am wondering how many of you have utilized trialpay as a means of purchasing a program? What programs do you know of which support this method of payment? I know of Winrar, mIRC, and winzip, but what else does?

mouser:
Trialpay was discussed in a few threads, most notably this one: http://www.donationcoder.com/forum/index.php?topic=12786.0
but also this one: http://www.donationcoder.com/forum/index.php?topic=5900.0

And DC Member (and shareware author) Renegade wrote about it on his blog a couple of times:

Here's a somewhat old list of TrialPay offers (probably not comprehensive): http://maggiewang.com/2007/06/06/maggies-big-list-of-trialpay-free-software-offers

The comments include additional info and at least one pointer to another list.

I've used TrialPay a couple times, and I'd use it again if I found a set of deals I wanted - but it's still a buyer beware situation.  A few comments:


* look for eBay offers - at least once they had an offer where all you had to do was make a bid - you didn't even have to win the item;
* use it only when the trial you're paying for is something you'd purchase without the software (or pretty close to it);
* realize that you might pay more for the thing you're buying on TrialPay than if you bought directly though the vendor's site.  In this case you're essentially paying for the 'free' software by paying more for whatever you're buying on TrialPay, so the 'free' software might not be that much of a bargain.  I know this is true for some or all of the flower offers;

Josh - I registered my copy of Ad Muncher through TrialPay yesterday and it was great! I bought a product that I needed anyway (spare toner cartridge) at a very competitive price.  :Thmbsup:
