How to Setup and Use Serial Key
You can set up serial keys for downloadable products for Simple & Variable Products. Follow these steps :
- Create or open any existing Simple or Variable Product (make sure it is a downloadable product).
- In the Simple product, look for the Generate Serial Key checkbox under General tab of Product data and enable it.
- For Variable Product, you’ll find this checkbox under each Variations.
- Remember that this checkbox will only be visible if the Downloadable checkbox is checked.
- If you want to limit number of usage of a serial key, you can enter a value for Serial Key Usage Limit.
