PRO license vs. FREE license

Some features of APEX are only (fully) accessible to PRO users. A PRO license can be acquired here.

Note that if you paid for a PRO license once, you will keep certain advantages forever as your license will go back to BASIC status instead of FREE.

You can find more information about what the licenses entail in the license section of the handbook.

  • Linking licensees: Preceding any person’s name with the @ sign will make it clickable in the chat window and link to the licensee’s profile.
  • Linking commodity price information: Posting a commodity’s ticker together with a commodity exchange code (for example HE3.CI1) will display the current price information for that commodity.
