The Pixelmator Pro upgrade bundle contains two apps — the original Pixelmator for Mac and Pixelmator Pro. It's intended as an upgrade path for the users who already own the original Pixelmator. The upgrade bundle works by subtracting the amount you paid for the original Pixelmator for Mac from the total price of the bundle. The original Pixelmator itself is  downloaded. This way, it's possible to get Pixelmator Pro for around 40-50% discount. 

To download the Pixelmator Pro upgrade bundle:

1.  Launch the App Store app on your Mac.

If you're using the App Store for the first time, you'll need to create a new Apple ID.

2. Find the Pixelmator Pro upgrade bundle on the App Store.

Search for Pixelmator Pro bundle using the search field in the top-right of the screen or click the link below:

Important: The Pixelmator Pro upgrade discount does not apply if the original Pixelmator for Mac was purchased outside of the App Store, purchased on sale, or if the address or the region of the Apple ID used to purchase the original Pixelmator for Mac has changed.

3. Head to the check-out. 

Click the price badge next to the bundle and follow the directions on the screen. You may be asked to enter your Apple ID password or other details.

4. Download and launch Pixelmator Pro.

Once you purchase the upgrade bundle, the download of Pixelmator Pro should start automatically. There's nothing special you need to do to install Pixelmator Pro once the download is complete — you can launch it from the Launchpad or the Applications folder on your Mac.

Tip: In case the initial download is interrupted and you cannot restart it, try rebooting your Mac. Once the Mac restarts, go to the App Store, then click your Apple ID in the sidebar on the left and find Pixelmator Pro in your list of purchases.

Note: Sometimes the Mac App Store will not allow you to download Pixelmator Pro (often when installing on a different device) after purchasing the bundle. If this happens, first download any free app from the Mac App Store on that device, then check your account to see whether Pixelmator Pro appears in the list of your purchased apps.
