Resolve 15 activation key emailed?

PostThu Jan 17, 2019 2:37 pm

Hi Folks

I have been using the free resolve version for a while now and want to get the studio version.
There are no dealers listed in South Africa on the website so will have to buy from elsewhere.

So I see on some sites it is an activation card that is posted to you after purchase. Then I came across one in California that says nothing is posted but they email you the key.

Is that legit? It would be my preferred way of purchasing to avoid the postal pigeon?
The site offering the email key is listed on the Resolve how to buy list.

Thanks

If they are listed by Blackmagic, they should be legit.
But it's obviously on their own, since the official policy is snail mail. Do they send you the card too?

Their site is listed for sure on BM page. They state nothing is posted but you receive a key via email 3 hours after purchase during normal business hours.
I will have to drop them a email but one thing I did see in not so small font on the product page is that it was for US customers only so I am probably up the creek without a paddle there hehe.

I will find someone else to DHL or Fedex me one. Our normal postal service is atrocious and its a lottery as to when and if you get anything from them.

Thanks

Why not ask BM to use a better service for some extra bucks?
