WooCommerce Serial Key & License Manager Plugin
Distribute and license your digital downloads easily
Automatically issue, validate and control unique license keys or serial keys for software, virtual and digital products with this popular WooCommerce license manager plugin.
Focus on building your product, not all the infrastructure!
License management for software, digital goods, downloadables and virtual products is a tough problem. You want to generate serial keys, distribute them, perform license validation from user’s installation, and control unauthorized usage. Almost always you also want to restrict features, control access and manage permissions.
Makers, designers and developers often end up creating complex license key systems. Users also have to save all these serial numbers and licenses safely, apply them correctly and reach out to you if they lose them.
Your time is one of your most important asset. So if you build a license management solution yourself or if you are stuck with some complex system, you are wasting not only yours but also your customers’ valuable, creative time.
Therefore, for all use cases of virtual and downloadable product distribution, software and memberships that require a unique key to identify a purchased license, this WooCommerce license manager plugin is the right business choice.
Automatic serial keys generation, Issue and Import
This Serial Key plugin automatically issues key codes / licenses on product purchase. If you have pre-generated keys, you can import them with a CSV file as well.
Easy for Customers – No more lost keys!
Distribute license keys in order confirmation email and show them with order information on “My Account” page within WooCommerce. We’ve also added a special page so customers can self-manage usage of serial keys allotted to them.
Powerful Access Control
Assign a unique serial key for each purchased product and set the expiry date, download limits and number of times a key can be used. Flexible licensing control means amazing control over plans and pricing of your products!
Excellent API – easy to integrate
Add license checks, validation and permission checks easily within your digital products. This plugin provides a simple but powerful usage tracking and validation API. You can call this API from your software or any third party system for flexible integration.
Works with WooCommerce Subscriptions & other plugins
Selling recurring subscriptions, memberships or other type of products? This plugin can issue a key code with any product, and is fully compatible with WooCommerce Subscriptions – among others.
License dashboard for store owners
As an admin, you can easily track every key’s status, edit license details, and manage keys within orders.
“The easiest licensing API to integrate”
I’m so happy with StoreApps WooCommerce Serial Key plugin. I have been fighting with various other licensing API’s free & paid but this was the easiest one to integrate. Took me a whole 5 minutes to code the validation in Python for my desktop app.
Why is WooCommerce Serial Key plugin the best digital product license manager and key code distribution solution?
Set usage limit, download limit and expiry date
Set different license expiry values for both simple and variable WooCommerce products. If you’ve set an expiry for the product (number of days or downloads), the license key will be rejected once product access expires.
License key delivery in ‘My Account’ and order confirmation email
Customers can view their license serial keys in their My Account > Downloads area. The keys are also included in the order confirmation email for easy reference.

Generate multiple serial keys for multiple quantities of the same product
If your customer purchases five quantities of your software / digital product, the plugin will generate and issue five unique serial keys, one for each instance of the product!
Add validation code in any software or app
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 API integration so you can add the license validation function in any other system / software app. See our integration documentation for more.
Easy self-service license management for customers
Your customers can manage their licenses from WooCommerce’s ‘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.
Powerful license management for store owners – apply filters, bulk delete…
We’ve added features to WooCommerce so you can easily find serial keys and manage orders. You can search for a customer order using a serial key or update serial keys in an order. This will save you a ton of efforts!
You also get a dedicated dashboard to easily track every license key status, delete keys in bulk, apply search filters for managing keys and more.
Not just for software – use this plugin anytime you need to issue unique key codes with a product purchase / order completion
Sure, a lot of customers of our WooCommerce Serial Key plugin use it to distribute and manage licenses for their softwares – plugins, apps, desktop software etc. But the plugin can be used for lots of difference scenarios – because it allows importing pre-generated codes and issuing them automatically.
