Are you trying to find Scrivener using the main store catalogue, instead of your personal Purchases area, where stuff you’ve already bought can be downloaded and installed years later?
Of course if you are searching the catalogue you will only find the newest version. If you want to update, send us an email
to the update query address, with your original Apple proof of purchase PDF attached. We’ll get you an upgrade discount coupon that you can use to purchase from our store
. Sorry, but the Mac App Store does not allow upgrade discounts (hence why they are asking you to buy it all over again for full price—we would absolutely make this easier for you if we could!).
In fact, if you bought it around a year ago, you may very well be eligible for a free upgrade. I don’t remember exactly when the window starts, but it was around Sep – Oct 2017.
Whatever the case don’t buy it for full price
