Upgrade to BetterZip 4 With a Mac App Store License

Prerequisite: Make sure that you opened BetterZip 2 from the Mac App Store (MAS) at least once before upgrading. If you need to, you can re-download BetterZip 2 from the Mac App Store’s Purchases tab. Just make sure you delete BetterZip 4 before doing that, because the MAS won’t install the old version over a newer one. After installing the MAS version, start it once and quit again.

  1. Download and install BetterZip 4.
  2. Open BetterZip 4 and it will recognize your MAS license and ask for your email address. (You can get back to this window by choosing BetterZip > Registration from the menu.)
  3. Enter your email address and click Register.
  4. BetterZip will download a temporary key for you which you can now use to buy the discounted upgrade.

I Tried, but It Really Doesn’t Work

If you can’t seem to get it to work, simply forward me the email invoice you received from Apple when you bought BetterZip. I will manually generate an upgrade key for you.
