    From my original post over at DSLReports.com:

    "I decided to go with another year of NOD32. It's fast, I've never had a virus with it, and it just works. The only thing still bugging me is how, whenever NOD32 finds something infected or a malicious file, it just about NEVER is able to do anything about it. It always says it can't quarantine it.. or it can't delete it. It got me wondering what I have it installed for in the first place.. it finds dangerous files, but can't do anything to them. Sorta pointless, eh? In one way or another, I still always managed to neutralize the threat, so it's not a huge problem. I would like it to be able to actually delete or quarantine the dangerous files. Even so, I've never been infected with it installed, and I guess that's what's most important with A/V software. Real-world protection.
    Anyway.. since I'm a student, and a one-year license for their A/V product is 40 bucks.. I was wondering if NOD32 offers reduced prices for students? Would anybody around here happen to know?

    TIA"

    Actually.. I *WOULD* be a returning customer :). I had NOD32 on my system for 2004, and I want it back for 2005. My license ran out on January 5th 2005. Can I still renew? I mean.. since it's January 14th now :)

    I just bought a 1 year renewal from here: http://www.nod32-av.com/purchase/purchase.htm

    Thanks to for sending me that link ;). Cheapest one of the bunch. I paid through PayPal and received a confirmation email. I'm still wondering why I was not asked for my old username and code for NOD32. Wouldn't that be logical if I'm buying a renewal? Otherwise, ANYONE could buy NOD32 at the renewal price, rather than at the new copy price. I'm confused now. :/
    Maybe NOD32 Sales will contact me and ask me about the old username/pw.

    Thanks all ;)

    you're right - sorry I didn't read it correctly...

    all license renewals are cheaper than first time purchases, so the $23.40 per single license renewals are the same whichever reseller you purchase a single renewal from I think... there MIGHT be a reseller discounting, but Eset really discourage the practice, so it might be a long hunt...

    Even we (NOD32USA.com) don't discount renewals....

    o_O $23.40 is retail pricing for a 1 year renewal...


    You should have been asked for your code to renew - we ask for them when renewals are purchased, and we have to provide them to Eset when your order is electronically submitted to their system... I'm not sure WHY you were not asked for it, but you should have been I think.

    Just a general e-commerce question - was paypal payment a PLUS for you? It looks like it was the ONLY option on the site you purchased from - would it have been ok to have just had paypal as an option, or is it a preferred option for you?

    cheers

    I checked out that site also, but chose not to order from it since, even if you use a credit card it goes through PayPal. There have been some real problems with Pay Pal recently -freezing of customer accounts, etc. I realize that some places such as eBay only uses Pay Pal, but they have a quarantee on their site. I prefer NOT to use Pay Pal.

    Some clarification may be in order. If a business uses PayPal that does not mean one needs a PayPal account (or to use that account). It is a processor just like any other business offering the same services. It is up to the purchaser if they want to use their PayPal logon (on that site) for purchasing (PayPal balance, Checking Account balance or just their Credit Card) or just a Credit Card (when the business has a PayPal Business account a.k.a. Premier).

    There have been various "pricing " posts over the time here

    As I understand it NOD set a base price and the reseller can choose to take less profit in the hope of attracting more customers

    I would though ask "ALL resellers not to use these forums to start a price war as that doesn't benefit anybody

    Hi there,

    for german users paypal is very good for online transactions all over the world especially in America/USA.

    I have bought things over Ebay in USA and have no problems with PayPal ever.

    If you don't have a credic card and want to pay/buy something in e.g. USA, PayPal is a very good solution, because you can transfer money from you local bank to Paypal for free and then you can pay/buy with that Paypal account what you want.

    So its very good that this NOD32 reseller support PayPal, but it isn't so good, that Paypal is the only pay method.

    But as I know, you can pay/buy with credic card over PayPal, without joining Paypal/without creating an account at PayPal..(only with CC)

    thx and best regards,

    iNsuRRecTiON

    There are several ways of knowing you are a customer of Eset:

    1) Your actual name.

    2) Your Email address

    3) Your Nod32 Username

    Any or all of the above is sufficient.

    Hope this helps...

    Cheers :D
