You probably bought it from an App store? I'm guessing? So you got a discounted price on an older version. 2019 is $249.00
Which, to be honest.Has very few feature advantages over 2019. Now I'm a windows user, so I don't all the differences between 2018 and 2019 Mac.
You can look it up on TechSmith's website and find out. If you really want 2019, I'm sure you have time to seek a refund for 2018.But you can probably update to 2019 cheaper.And may want to wait till Version 2020 or 2021 before updating.Or perhaps wait even longer?

The App Store is actually saying 2019.. that's very weird.

I already have a bit of a similar question and nobody answered since yesterday .. I think I'll go ahead and get ScreenFlow instead!

 I was guessing. I don't know if he got it there or not?

If he did, I see 2019 as clearly as you.I would contact them and get the 2019 version.Or maybe he downloaded the wrong one??? IDK  For $99 that's much cheaper then buying directly from TechSmith.
Why, I don't understand?

Hi guys, here's another thread on the same confusing issue.
Not only is the MAS less expensive, there seems to be more "seats" than the direct-with-TechSmith 2 seats. Then the question is, what happens with Camtasia 2020 and beyond? Full purchase, upgrade, or you get it for free?
