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!

This is a wonderful plugin and fits mostly all needs. Hats off to the creator for making this free. Highly recommend. The best license key plugin for WordPress. PERIOD. Works for WordPress 5.7.2. (The notes say its untested for this version)

Good functionality, but it can be improved by adding: 1.update product url, 2.license per url 3.version for product Overall is a great plugin, and code quality

What a great plugin! Integrates perfectly with Woocommerce / Subscriptions / Variable products and generates the codes for you. When you consider WC want $200+ for their plugins this is SO good!

Perfect plugin to manage licenses with WooCommerce. I tried all the similar plugins, but this one is the best. Suggest Feature: - Allow customer to download a license file instead of copy past (for extra large licenses).

I was previously using a paid license key plugin, but after rather mixed experiences, I switched to License Manager for WooCommerce and am very glad I did because of the comprehensibility of use, the user-friendly API, the truly fast support and the ongoing development. Cheers!
