How to Purchase Microsoft Office 2007

By Geoff Schmidt

Office 2007 is a productivity software bundle made by Microsoft. It includes popular programs like Word, Excel, PowerPoint and Outlook 2007.

Direct Sales

You can't purchase Office 2007 from the Microsoft website because the company is focused on selling Office 2010, but you can still gain information about the product on the site. You can also download updates and service packs. For the same reason, it's difficult to purchase Microsoft Office 2007 in electronics stores.

Purchasing on Amazon.com

One popular way to purchase software is to visit an online site like Amazon.com. Enter the words "Microsoft Office 2007" in the search bar and click on the link for the software CD-ROM. When you do, you will find a product description and many customer reviews. These reviews can help you make up your mind if you're not certain about your purchase. If you are certain, you will find both new and used versions for sale. You must have an account with Amazon and use a credit card to complete your purchase.

Purchasing on eBay

Another way to purchase Microsoft Office 2007 is through an online auction site like eBay. You will find more sellers on eBay, and might find the software at a significantly reduced cost. You will be able to purchase it new or used. You will need an account with eBay, but may pay with a check or money order as well as a credit card, depending on the seller's preferences. Be sure to check the seller's feedback and only purchase from a seller you think you can trust.
