License Manager for WooCommerce

Description

The License Manager for WooCommerce allows you to easily sell and manage all of your digital license keys. With features like the bulk importer, automatic delivery, and database encryption, your shop will now run easier than ever.

Key plugin features

  • Automatically sell and deliver license keys through WooCommerce
  • Manually resend license keys
  • Add a single license key and assign it to a specific product
  • Add multiple license keys (by file upload) and assign them to a specific product
  • Export license keys as PDF or CSV
  • Manage the status of your license keys
  • Create license key generators with custom parameters
  • Assign a generator to one (or more!) WooCommerce product(s), these products then automatically create a license key whenever they are sold

API

The plugin also offers additional endpoints for manipulating licenses and generator resources. These routes are authorized via API keys (generated through the plugin settings) and accessed via the WordPress API. An extensive API documentation is also available.

Support

If you have any feature requests, need more hooks, or maybe have even found a bug, please let us know in the support forum or e-mail us at support@licensemanager.at. We look forward to hearing from you!

You can also check out the documentation pages, as they contain the most essential information on what the plugin can do for you.

Important

The plugin will create two files inside the wp-content/uploads/lmfwc-files folder. These files (defuse.txt and secret.txt) contain cryptographic secrets which are automatically generated if they don’t exist. These cryptographic secrets are used to encrypt, decrypt and hash your license keys. Once they are generated please back them up somewhere safe. In case you lose these two files your encrypted license keys inside the database will remain forever lost!

Easy to use Plugin to sell Licenses through Woocommerce. Drazen and he promptly replied and helped me achieve my requirement. Very good plugin and the fast support.

This plugin is just what I was looking for. It is perfect for selling Serial Numbers for digital products. Before being familiar with this useful plugin, I should send every serial number manually but now they are delivering automatically. Thanks you for developing this excellent plugin wish the best Mr. Dražen Bebić
