How do licenses work for resources bought on Teachers Pay Teachers (TpT)?

When you purchase a resource on TpT, you’re buying one license to use in accordance with the terms of this TpT Licensing Policy. All downloadable and digitally consumed resources can only be used in accordance with the license you purchase.


Before adding a resource to your cart, please choose the license type that best fits your needs. You can purchase a single license by clicking “Add one to cart”, or purchase multiple licenses by selecting “Buy licenses to share“. In many instances, when you purchase multiple licenses, you receive a discount on the additional licenses purchased.  


TpT for Schools License Purchase Options:

As an administrator of a school on TpT, you have the option to purchase a transferable or non-transferable license. Additionally, you’re able to purchase a single license or multiple licenses, depending on your school’s needs.

  • A non-transferable license is purchased for use by one individual user.  A non-transferable license can only be assigned to one person, so if a teacher leaves the school or changes grades/positions within the school, the resource license cannot be reclaimed for use by another user.
  • A transferable license allows the administrator of a TpT for Schools account to reassign the resource to another user in the case of turnover, leave, or other special cases once per year. In the case of transferable licenses, your school is getting the added benefit of retaining control over the resource. Since more than one teacher can benefit from the resource over time, there is a longer life for the resource and added value to it.
