Sell License Keys for Software

The WooCommerce Software Add-on gives you the ability to manage license keys and activations via your store.

Sell licenses and upgrades

Define your products as software via the edit product page, and after doing so lets you define software specific properties:

If enabled, users can upgrade old keys for a reduced price
If enabled, users can upgrade old keys for a reduced price

Customers purchase software like any other product, but after doing so (when the order is completed) they will receive an auto-generated license key from the system within their order-complete email.

Order emails contain the key, activation email, and activations remaining. You can resend these emails using the in-built ‘send’ button in WooCommerce on the orders screen.

If you ever introduce a paid upgrade for software you can define valid upgrade keys, and an upgrade price, which your customers can make use of. They will just have to enter their license details during their purchase:

View purchased keys

Licences associated with orders can be viewed and edited from the orders screen – activations are also shown:

Licenses and activations on the orders page

To view licenses not associated to orders, or just to get an overall view you can go to WooCommerce > License Keys for a list of keys. This screen also has bulk delete functionality should you want to revoke keys.

Track activations and view reports

The extension comes with a reports page found in WooCommerce > Reports > Software. These reports give you an overview of software sales, and list activations:

Activations report

Interact with the API

This extension comes with an API for generating keys, activating licenses, de-activating and resetting. This API can be integrated into your software/web app to validate licenses. See the documentation for more details on the API.
