The Clip Studio Paint subscription model SaaS service, launched with the iPad version in November 2017, is available for all devices, and the number of subscriptions has increased by 130% year-on-year (compared to 2023 results).

In addition to the subscription model, the one-time purchase version of Clip Studio Paint continues to be sold on Windows/macOS. This model allows users to access the latest functions through an add-on subscription or by paying to upgrade the version. This model has contributed to an increase in subscription.
