Upgrading from Eset Nod 32 to ESET Smart Security Premium

Recommended Posts

Hello there,

I have been trying for a bit now to test out the ESET Smart Security Premium I downloaded it and installed it but the seconds I logged into my account with ESET it defaulted to the ESET NOD 32 installation which I did not catch. I want to upgrade to the ESET Smart Security Premium. Is there any way to do this from my account? I have tried to add a license or upgrade but the options are something like add a free license or upgrade my current NOD 32 to 3 users but nothing for me to upgrade to ESET Smart Security Premium

Please let me know what I am missing and where I can do this. Thanks!

Within the product on the main splash screen click on Help and Support, then Change Product. See if that way works.

Thanks for the reply.. I tried that too. You would think trying to upgrade your subscription would be the easiest thing in the world and interface. I mean to be honest that is probably the most important part of the product..

Ok, so try it the hard way, do the upgrade to Internet security and then upgrade that to smart security. It prorates the prices just as it did it for the NOD to internet security upgrade. Outside that wait for an actual Eset employee to pop in the thread or email support.

Ahh a progressive purchase.. I will give that a go and post back just to close this post. It will be awhile I am away from the PC at the moment.

Only other thing you could do is contact support/sales

contact the support of your region and ask them to upgrade the license key. i did it myself and after paying a small ont-time fee my key was upgraded to Premium and was able to upgrade the installed program.

Thanks for all the replies... Sorry have been ill.  I decided to upgrade to Internet Security and then Upgrade to Premium through the portal. It is 2 steps, but I did not have to talk anyone. It was a small fee as stated above and to be honest, the extra features provided for me having used NORTON before. All I can say is I like the way ESET does it better.. its faster, cleaner, its just nice.. So kudoz to ESET for making the premium a great upgrade to invest in.

Maybe Eset should fix this? 

This is the only way right now to upgrade your license from say NOD32 to Smart Security Premium or Internet Security:
Login to : https://login.eset.com
Select your license and open it
Click on the icon with the two up arrows (upper right corner)) and select Upgrade.
Upgrade and pay for your license.
NOW you can assign the upgraded license either online or by following these instructions in the Eset application (Change products after installation):

I upgraded from EIS to ESSP yesterday via Eset eStore. After my credit card payment was applied, EIS auto upgraded to ESSP. The only thing I had to do was restart EIS per Eset GUI home page display alert. After EIS restart, I was running ESSP.

I suspect that an upgrade from NOD32 to ESSP would be more involved and require a full Eset installation of ESSP.

My major complaint about the ESSP upgrade is this: https://forum.eset.com/topic/30896-i-have-had-it-with-eset-na-license-purchase-procedures/
