I've made dozens of Avast purchases and the license details always arrived within minutes.  You should have received emails from "element 5 Notification" as the sender with the following subject lines from my experiences;

1. Payment information (element 5 order no. xxxxxxxxx)
2. License Key for "avast! etc" (element 5 order no. xxxxxxxxx)
3. The login information you requested

The last email (No. 3) you only get if you request that information towards the end of the purchasing process.

So yes, you should have gotten the info pretty much straight away, unless you got a message at the end of your purchase that your card details needed to be checked with your financial institution before the order would be processed which sometimes happens.

If you got none of the above yet have been charged for your puchase, then sales@avast.com and perhaps support@avast.com are your only other online options.  Support can take a while to get back to you at times unfortunately.  Good luck and hope you get sorted quickly.

Cheers...

Hi Mate - yes I always received the license stuff within a few minutes of the sale confirmation. As Andrew says it comes from element5 and has all the stuff.

By the way - for Avast! version 5 you should notice that its a file rather than a text key as it was before.

Did you install it OK, and what version did you end up with? I bought it from CNET I think and got an earlier version that crashes my system, so I have resorted temporarily to the Free version, as it is up to date and doesnt bugger the bootup...

its in the email from element 5 usuallly about halfway down there will be a link actually in the email. you must click the link to download the lic file. it does not come as a attachment normally for me. the link they give you remains for 7 days. i have bought many lic's now and never had a issue with one yet.

That looks like it's from the "Payment information (element 5 order no. xxxxxxxxx)" email.

Is that the only email you received after your purchase?

If so, something has definately gone wrong.. because you should have received another email containing the License information.

If that's where you're at then I suggest you get onto "sales@avast.com" and ask for your license information. I can understand your frustration.. sucks when you have a problem after doing the right thing. Alwil should put issues like this towards the top of their priority list.

Good luck..

avast sales was awesome to deal with. im sure they will take care of you. send them a email and im sure they will help. but from my experience they do take 24+ hours to respond. so dont worry if you dont get a immediate response. they took care of every issue i had.

This is a great post - apology accepted of course. Everybody knows frustration from time to time.
Good to hear it's okay now.
