Automatically issue, validate and manage unique license/serial keys for digital products.
Easy to use and integrate. Most effective WooCommerce license manager plugin.
Have you gone through this problem?
License management and serial keys can get complex.
Users have to store serial keys and licenses, apply them at the right places and not lose them.
On the other hand, for the issuer/developer, generating and distributing keys as well as controlling unauthorized usage beyond permitted limits is a nightmare. They often end up creating complex systems.
If you have multiple products, there is even a bigger problem.
If you are distributing unique keys for any other purpose – group buying, offers, third-party integrations – you need to not only generate keys and manage integrations but also build the website for distribution.
If you build a license management solution yourself or if you are stuck with a complex solution, you are wasting not only yours but also your customers’ valuable, creative time.
For all use cases of virtual and downloadable product distribution, software and memberships that require a unique key to identify a purchased license, WooCommerce Licensing & Serial Key is the plugin of choice.
- Simple: WooCommerce Licensing and Serial Key plugin is designed to be simple for both users and developers. Show keys on My Account page, templates to show keys on order / invoice, separate page for customers to manage their serial keys.
- Automatic: It automatically issues serial keys to customers on product purchase.
- Control Access: Assign unique serial key for each purchased product and set the expiry date, download limits and number of times a key can be used (so flexible licensing!)
- Dedicated dashboard: Easily track each and every key’s status, edit key details, apply multiple search filters for managing keys.
- Import: If you have pre-generated keys, you can import them with a CSV file.
- Validation: Simple API to call from your software/third party system to validate keys and track usage.
- Works with WooCommerce Subscriptions: If you are selling virtual and downloadable products on subscription basis, this plugin works seamlessly.

Setting up serial keys
You can setup license key issuance on any downloadable simple product or variation. If you’ve set an expiry for the product (number of days or downloads), the license key will be rejected once product access expires.
You can also import a CSV file of your licenses if you do not wish to use the system generated license keys.
Serial key distribution in My Account and order email
When someone purchases a product, a serial key will be issued automatically. The key will also be available in their My Account > Downloads area, and included in the order confirmation email.
Simple licenses validation
This example shows serial key validation – internally the system uses a UUID to identify the user (which can be their email address, domain name, or anything else you choose). We have a simple HTTP based integration API so you can add the validation routine in any system/software. See our integration documentation for more.
Generate multiple serial keys for multiple quantities of the same product
Earlier, WooCommerce Serial Key used to generate only one serial key for one product, irrespective of the quantity of the product. For example, if you purchased three quantities of Smart Manager, a single serial key would be issued for all the three.
Now, if you purchase five quantities of Smart Manager, you would have five serial keys, one for each Smart Manager respectively.
Customer managed licenses
Customers can manage their licenses from WooCommerce My Account area. For example, our plugins are licensed based on the number of sites. As licenses are validated, those sites will show up in license management area within the customer’s dashboard. If they wish, customers can remove some sites to stop using the plugin on an old site, and activate it on a new site.
Admin managed licenses
We’ve added features to WooCommerce so you can easily manage serial keys and orders. You can search for a customer order using a serial key, update serial keys in an order. This will save you a ton of efforts!
