I have Bibleworks 3.5 and it fulfilled my needs as a layman for a long time. I recently purchased bibleworks 7 from someone in Wisconsin (thought I could use a more up to date program than Bibleworks 3.5). But I find that it is way to much for my needs and would like to post it for sale if anyone knows someone looking for it, let me know. I would like to sell it for $159.00. The going price of Bibleworks 9 is $359.00 and to upgrade from 7 to 9 is $199.00. The Bibleworks is deregistered with Bibleworks and the license agreement would be transfered to the new owner. Thank you Michael Hanel and BKMitchell for your responses, very helpful for a first time forum user.

I hope this is the proper place to post this.

As far as I know, BW hasn't stopped people from re-selling BW here on the Forums (as most of the other software companies do). I don't want to harm your transaction, but that price seems pretty high. If someone wants BibleWorks, I don't know why they wouldn't want the latest version with all of the updates, latest additions, etc. If one were to buy your copy for $200, and decided they wanted to upgrade, the cost for upgrading to 7 to 9 is currently priced (http://store.bibleworks.com/upgrade.html) at $199. So a person would be paying $200 for BW7, and then 199$ to upgrade to BW9. But BW9 itself resales for $359 for those starting from scratch, which is less than the cost of upgrade added to the cost you are asking for. I'm sure someone might say that BW7 is all they want, but I think they'd be missing out on a lot.

Welcome to the BibleWork forums,

One, when, you 'purchased' BibleWorks 7 did you and that 'someone' make sure to contact BibleWorks so that the license agreement for BibleWorks7 was legally transferred and registered to your name? If, not then anyone who receives BibleWorks7 from you will be unable to upgrade should he/she desire to.

Two, I am guessing that the majority of BibleWorks forum users have already acquired licenses for BibleWorks9, or at least version 8. So, I think you might have better luck selling an ancient version of BibleWorks on Ebay or the Craigslist.
