The Stagelight store uses two types of credits: Content credits and Cash credits

Content credits are given when you register your Stagelight account, use our referral program to get other users to sign up, and when you purchase one of the feature unlocks. These credits can only be used to purchase loop and preset packages, not feature unlocks.

Cash credits are credits that are purchased from the IOS, Google Play or Windows stores. These credits can be used to purchase any items in the Stagelight in app store, including feature unlocks and content.

You can check the status of your credits in the in app store by pressing “store credit” in the upper right corner. Here you will see your total credit amount and a breakdown of how much of your total credits are Cash credits and how much are Content credits.

In the Windows version of Stagelight, you can use a credit card directly in the app to make purchases. All credit card purchases are processed by Paypal and Open Labs does not retain any of your credit card data.

In the Android and iOS versions, you will need to purchase credits through the Google Play Store or App Store. These credits can be used in both the Windows and Android versions

The Windows, Mac, iOS and android versions of Stagelight are functional the same, but they require separate licenses. All in-app content is shared between devices and projects need to be transferred between Android to Windows, iOS or Mac and vice versa.
