Plugin Boutique is a site that has been used by Composers because the price of products are cheaper compared to other sites and plugins are distributed free of charge.
This article explains the advantages of Plugin Boutique and how to buy and how to get coupons.
1. What is “Plugin Boutique” ?
It is a plug-in specialty store that handles many plug-ins such as iZotope, Arturia, Softube, Soundtoys, Eventide, Slate Digital, Fabfilter.
Plugin Boutique is a frequent sale. There are many free plugins, and in the past, paid plugins such as Ozone Elements, Nectar Elements and Neutron Elements have been distributed for free.

The details of Reward + Token and Virtual Cash and how to get them will be explained in 3. Reasons to recommend.
Enter the address and name in English.
Checking “Store my billing address in my account” saves time since you do not have to enter it next time.
Select payment method by PAYPAL or credit card.
Purchased products will be reflected in “MY ACCOUNT” on the upper right. You can download either Windows or Mac.
However, there are manufacturers who need to go to the product’s homepage, register as a user, register their Serial Number, and download it from the software’s website or application.
You can see how to install and authorize each product from “VIEW DOCUMENTS (installation instructions)”.
There are three main types of authorization.
- Download directly from Plugin Boutique and use by registering Serial Number at startup.
- Go to the product’s homepage to register user, need serial number registration on HP or application etc.
- Go to the product’s homepage to register the user, register the serial number, and require license authentication (iLok etc.)
3. Reasons to recommend
I recommend Plugin Boutique for four reasons:
- You can get Rewards + Token (discount coupon) and Virtual Cash (points)
- Can be used immediately after purchase
- It is cheaper compared to other sites
- Plug-ins from different manufacturers can be managed collectively
You can get Rewards+ Token (discount coupon) and Virtual Cash (points)
Plugin Boutique offers Rewards+ Token and Virtual Cash depending on the purchase. Each of them is listed below the product price.
“MY ACCOUNT” shows how much you have. Virtual Cash can be used as a discount as it is, and Rewards+ Token can receive a discount coupon from “Take Me To My Rewards” below. You can also change Rewards + Token to Virtual Cash from the bottom of the “Take Me To My Rewards” page.
Virtual Cash is 5% of purchase, Rewards+ Token is 1 Token = £ 1.25 Virtual Cash or discount coupon. You can get a fair amount.

Can be used immediately after purchase
Plugin Boutique is almost always available immediately after purchase. Delivery takes time depending on where you buy. By using Plugin Boutique, you can save time and effort.
When you purchase, your serial number will be displayed on your account and you can download it from Plugin Boutique.
It is cheaper compared to other sites
This depends on the thing, but it may be cheaper than other sites. In addition, Plugin Boutique may distribute paid items for free. In the past, the following paid plugins have been distributed free of charge.
- iZotope Ozone Elements
- iZotope Neutron Elements
- iZotope Nectar Elements
- iZotope Iris 2
- Mastering the Mix EXPOSE
Plugins from different manufacturers can be managed collectively
Plugins from different manufacturers can be centrally managed with a Plugin Boutique account. Usually, it is troublesome because it requires separate management.
On the other hand, Plugin Boutique is very convenient because you can manage all serial numbers and download links in your account.
Plugin Boutique has many free plugins, so it’s better to just create an account.
Also, Plugin Boutique sells and distributes free of charge frequently, so be sure to check it out regularly. It is a recommended site that I often use.
