License Renewals Guide

License Renewal

Extensions for WP eCommerce are licensed for one year at a time.  After that you may renew your license to continue to receive updates and support.

What happens if a license is not renewed?

  1. The Extension will continue to work normally
  2. Automatic security and feature updates will be discontinued.
  3. You will no longer have access to technical support for the item.

If I renew my license, do I need to also re-download the software and install it again?

No, the built-in automatic update system will take care of all of that for you.

Will my extension work with an inactive or expired license?

Yes, extensions are designed to continue functioning even if your license key expires. However, due to the nature of software updates (such as WordPress and other plugins), there is the possibility that the extension will eventually stop working due to other updates within WordPress or related plugins. For this reason, it is highly recommended that you renew your license, but it is optional.

Can licenses be renewed early or late?

Yes. Renewing early will extend your license from its previous end date.

Are there lifetime licensing options?

Yes.

If I have Live and Testing servers, do I need to activate my license on both sites?

No, you should only activate your license on your Live site.  You may still install your extension on your Test server and use it without an active license.

How do I renew my license?

See this guide for renewing your license keys.

Will my license renew itself automatically?

Not at the moment.

What if I don’t want to renew?

You don’t have to do anything, just don’t renew your license.
