Purchasing Live as a gift
If you’d like to purchase Live as a gift for a family member or friend, please proceed with the following steps:
- Create an Ableton account under your name.
- Purchase a Live License at your convenience. Once the transaction has been completed the license can be found under Software in your Ableton account page.
- Once you exchange gifts, have the recipient of the Live License create an account..
- After, you can submit a license transfer to the recipient directly from your user account.
If you are purchasing a Live Educational License (view our educational license requirements) you'll be prompted to upload a verification document once the transaction is complete. Please upload one of the following:
Student ID Card
For Teachers & Faculty:
Teacher ID Card
Proof of employment (anything that helps us link you to your respective institution)
Teacher/Faculty Directory (online)
* If you can't access any of these documents without ruining the surprise, don't worry you can always verify the license after the gift has been revealed.
