What is Financial Shareware? It's "Try Before You Buy" Software.
Financial shareware is financial software offered by the software's developer on a "try before you buy" basis.
The term "shareware" is all about the way a software company markets its products.
In a nutshell, shareware is a method of software marketing and distribution. Shareware is not a particular type of program.
For example, there are many different types of financial software on FinancialShareware.com. The one thing they have in common is that the software companies which offer trial versions of their products on FinancialShareware.com all want you to try their products to see if they meet your needs..
In fact, another term for shareware is "try before you buy" software. With the spread of high-speed Internet access, the shareware marketing method is now used by nearly every large and small software company which provide free trial versions of their software as online downloads.
Other terms you'll see on software company web sites which indicate they use the shareware method of software marketing include "trial version", "evaluation version", and "free trial". Software requires an investment of your time and money. It makes sense to try a product before you commit to it. So go ahead ... try it before you buy it ... that's what financial shareware is all about!
