Default Selling wmbroidery software?

Has anyone had any luck selling embroidery software? I am looking at a machine that is priced a little high for me but it has software that I do not need. Has anyone ever tried to sell embroidery software? This is tajima pulse creator. Is it legal to sell it?

It can depend upon conditions of the licence, but usually it's perfectly fine to sell software.

As to selling the software, the main problem is that the market is relatively small. Those who actually need such software are few and far between, fewer who can make use of it without official support or training and that is where the expense comes in!

Consequently, even though the original software can be very expensive, it can be difficult to sell at anything close to the proper price.

You may be fortunate, but I wouldn't want to give you false expectations.

I believe you can sell it. You could check with Pulse to be certain. I agree, I think it will be hard to find a buyer who will pay what its worth.

I had the same question a few weeks ago and this is the answer I got from Hirsch:
a license is transferrable, the software will have to be updated to the most current version, DG15 and a transfer fee applies: a) update to DG15 from V12 at the Creator level is $1125.00 which can be discounted to $843.75 plus applicable shipping & handling and state sales tax. b) the transfer fee for Creator is $1250.00 in addition to the update cost
This brings the software up to today's version and enables you to take our live web training classes and have full software and networking support. Total of the update and transfer $2093.75 plus applicable shipping & handling and state sales tax.

Once the transfer has taken place the upgrade to Maestro from Creator is $6995.00 which can be discounted to $5246.25 plus applicable sales tax.

I still do not understand why the prices are so high for our industry?

If you think pricing is bad now wait until the software companies decide to go to cloud services like adobe.

Ver15 Pulse has a cloud option on it I think.

I was told software prices are high because the market isn't large. I think that's partly true but you're paying to get and stay in the industry. I'm using software that's over ten years old but I'll probably be forced to upgrade when I purchase my next computer.
