Full Packaged Product (FPP)

Definition - What does Full Packaged Product (FPP) mean?

A full packaged product is a complete off-the-shelf software product sold in a shrink-wrapped box. Packages often included a CD-ROM or DVD for installation, as well as printed user guides and software agreements, the paper equivalent of a digital “readme” file.

Techopedia explains Full Packaged Product (FPP)

A full packaged product, which is also sometimes called a shrink-wrapped license product, often includes a particular EULA or end-user license agreement. This is sometimes called a “click wrap” agreement. The user agreement inside the package can be used as a legal tool for intellectual property protection. However, most companies also include some type of EULA digitally when the product is installed and executed. The phenomenon of cloud-delivered and web-delivered software, or Software as a Service, changes the traditional conventions that the use of a full packaged product is based on. Therefore, full packaged products are declining in popularity and use.
