What is the type of license?

July 5, 2021 - 4:29am #1

I am planning to sell cups with marks on them.

The content will be an app created in Vuforia that will read the mark on the cup and display a message.

The app will be distributed free of charge.

My company will be a small company with about $200,000 in sales.

In this case, is there any problem with the license "Basic"?

Please reply.

Thanks for contacting me.

With the content I'm creating now, it may be a PRO license.

I have purchased the cheapest plan I could find.

How much does a pro license cost?
