How can we improve WooCommerce?

Import license keys with Software Add-on extension

Many customers ask if the Software Add-on extension supports importing your own license keys. At this time it does not.

This is a request to add a feature that would allow customers to import their own license keys.

If this is a feature addition you would be interested in seeing, please help vote on this idea or leave a comment to be updated on progress here.

        It would also be helpful if we could potentially add multiple license keys per product as we have a single product that needs up to 8 license codes to go out with it.

        I'd also prefer to use an external licensing server that uses a hardware fingerprint to lock an activation to a specific machine. An API could be used to automatically get new license keys as each sale comes in.

        We use SoftwareKey.com's Protection Plus Professional, which ties the issuance of an unlock code to the internal serial number of the customer's computer. This prevents installation on multiple computers. Your system doesn't seem to do this, so we would like to see a function in your system where we could import our own Protection Plus Pro license keys.

        I just checked all comments and found out 1 year and sth has pasted.

        It is a must have function so when will this be implemented?

        Hello we recently purchased your software add-on for licenses. We have spent quite a bit of time and effort customizing your add on to suit our purposes. As a result, we should not and will not update your add on moving forward. We got an notification from Woocommerce recently stating that we need to run their Plug-in manager from now and that we need to pay for for the use of plug-in every year now. We are concerned that Plug-in manager will update your add on and as a result ruin the work we did to customize it - rendering making our licensing completely un-useable :-( Also, if in fact we have to now pay for your plug-in every year, then I can assure you that this was not made clear to us when we bought it :-( Please help to shed some light on all of this. I hope we simply reading the recent Woocommerce message about the Plug-in Manager wrong.

        I'd like to have the possibility to call a php script that'll generate a new key and give it back.

        Hello,
        We absolutely need to import (and therefore sell) our own license codes for different software products we make. Please add this option as it is the only way that we could switch to woocommerce.

        I'd specifically want to see it call a PHP extension for generating licenses based on name.

        I have the need to import different pools of license keys for different classes we are selling. Class "A" would have one pool of keys and class "B", another pool of keys. so the ability to import keys would be extremely helpful.
