Easy Digital Downloads Software Licensing allows you to provide license keys along with your digital products that can then be used to properly license and activate the buyer’s copy of the software. Whether you are selling WordPress plugins, themes, or any other kind of software, including video games and desktop applications, the Easy Digital Downloads Software Licensing add-on will become a huge asset for you that also helps to take your business to the next level.
License key management
Through simple, intuitive interfaces Easy Digital Downloads Software Licensing allows site admins to easily view and manage customer license keys.
Each individual license key includes a complete details screen that makes all relevant purchase and customer data easily accessible.
License key generation can be enabled on each product in your store separately and every product gets its own settings, allowing you to easily sell many different product variations and non-software products at the same time.
Easy Digital Downloads Software Licensing includes a complete and easy to use JSON API that can be used for activating, checking, and validating license keys. This provides software developers a way to remotely activate and validate license keys within software applications.
The API includes methods for the following requests:
- license activation
- license deactivation
- license validation
- latest version / update details
Included with Easy Digital Downloads Software Licensing is a complete renewal system to allow customers to renew their license keys when they are nearing expiration. The renewal system provides automated email reminders that can be sent to customers when a license is about to expire, and from the email customers can, with a single click, go directly to your store and renew their license key.
Renewal discounts can be configured by site administrators to help incentivize customers to renew their license keys.
Site administrators can also manually renew license keys on behalf of customers at anytime, or manually email renewal notices to customers.
Easy Digital Downloads Software Licensing also provides a complete reporting view that displays a graph of license renewals and earnings from those renewals over time so you can better understand how many customers renew their licenses.
The renewal system is also fully integrated with our Recurring Payments plugin, allowing you to set up automatic renewals with recurring subscriptions.
License upgrade paths
For sites that sell multiple versions of their software, allowing customers to upgrade from one level to the next is important. Easy Digital Downloads Software Licensing provides a complete system for creating upgrade paths for customers to upgrade between license levels.
Upgrade purchases can be prorated based on the customer’s existing purchase and can even include additional discounts. Upgrade paths can be configured to allow customers to upgrade between license levels of a single product or even to entirely different products.
Add one-click updates to your WordPress plugins and themes
With the complete API for providing automatic updates for WordPress plugins and themes to valid license key holders, this Easy Digital Downloads Software Licensing add-on will not only make your life as a distributor of products easier, but it will also thrill your customers by allowing them to update their themes and plugins to the latest version with a single click.
