Buy.com has launched an online software licensing programme in the US so that customers can buy Microsoft products over the web.
The License Online scheme allows customers to buy the entire line of Microsoft licensed products at www.buysoft.com. US based buy.com, which also operates in the UK, said it plans to add more software licences in the future.
Murray Hennessy, chief executive of buy.com's UK division, said the programme is not currently available in the UK, "but we are looking at an electronic software download scheme as a possible expansion" for the region.
Greg Hawkins, chief executive of buy.com in the US, said once a customer places an order for a software licence, the order is forwarded to Microsoft and the customer should receive the licence within a few business days.
"It is a significant move for us to be able to offer our customers a quick and hassle-free method to acquire software licenses online," he said.
Buy.com also launched a volume licence software programme for small businesses that need more than one licence.
