POD Credits

Library Expert Enterprise customers on current maintenance have free access to existing parts in our Parts on Demand database, and may purchase credits to request new parts.

Users of the free Library Expert Pro and POD Builder editions (view comparison) may purchase POD credits to access all existing parts, as well as request new parts. These credits will be assigned to the account purchased and/or specified (via POD Builder Key) at time of purchase.

Credits do not expire, are non-transferrable, are non-refundable. Credits may be applied at the rate of $1 per credit for purchase of any Library Expert software license.

If you do not have the Enterprise version with a USB or SL Key, please specify your account POD Builder Key. If you do not have a POD Builder Key, get one by following Step 1 on on this page.

Note: New POD Credits may take up to 24 hours to post to your account.

Please note, it's important that you only purchase credits you will use while you have the latest released version. If you do not upgrade to the latest Library Expert version, you may have compatibility issues with downloaded FPX files from POD. There are no refunds or adjustments for unused credits or parts downloaded that are not compatible with older versions of the Library Expert (use the latest release).
