How to Import Serial Keys from CSV file

Initially Serial Key had this tiny limitation i.e. the store admin had to use the serial keys generated by the system. From Serial Key version 1.7+, you can create & use serial keys of your own.

How to use your own Serial Keys

  1. Create a CSV file consisting of all the serial key text you will like to distribute to your customer’s (instead of system generated).
    Note that, do not include any special characters in your serial key text.
  2. Import this file to the WooCommerce Serial Key dashboard

  3. If you want to import separate set of serial keys for separate product, upload CSV file via link provided in that product or variations

  4. Once imported, the CSV file is validated and you will see a table like this. This table gives you complete information of how many serial keys have been imported and the ones that are skipped and why (A serial key is skipped if; it is duplicated / already used / has a special character)

  5. Also, for the convenience of the Store Admin we have included a notification feature. This feature will inform you when the serial keys are nearing the end. By default, this email will be send when 20 serial keys are remaining, which you can change.
    For example: You want to get notified when there 10 serial keys left. You will get an email which will look something like this

If you do not add on to the list of serial keys even after all the initial serial keys get exhausted, the system will automatically generate serial keys of it’s own.

Note: A sample CSV file is present inside plugin folder for your reference.
