Licensing uses the Google Pay feature, which is tied to the user authenticated in Chrome.
Once you complete a purchase, you have a 30 days free trial period. After this period, your credit card will be charged once for the whole year (with automatic renewal).

The Options dialog shows your license information, its expiry, and a link to your Google Pay account so you can easily manage your subscription.
Once you have a license, you can use the more advanced features of Da Vinci Tools without restriction. You can even use a different account to access Google Analytics, Google Tag Manager or Data Studio. This provides the benefit of using a single license tied to your master account while not restricting you to use different accounts with the Google Marketing Platform.
