You can sell your plugin or theme through the WooCommerce with WooCommerce Software Add-on platform using Appsero.
Let us see the steps, shall we.
To add a new plugin, click on the Add New button. There you will find two options “Add Plugin” and “Add Theme“. Click on the “Add Plugin” button.
Now you have to click on “Yes, It’s a Premium Plugin” button.
Because it is a premium plugin, all the details have to be filled up manually. All the necessary data needs to be added. Check out what you need to add.
Now, you can add the details in the fields.
Now, onto the Licensing part. Appsero will ask you a question, Whether you want to manage your plugin ‘s license through Appsero or not. Now, we recommend choosing “Yes;“
Then you can use every feature of Appsero including Analytics, Licensing & Deployment. So it is recommended to select Yes.
You can choose “No” also. In that case, then you can only use the analytics part.
If you want currently WooCommerce with WooCommerce API manager or WooCommerce with WooCommerce Software Add-on – select them.
But if you want to use Appsero directly with WooCommerce without any other plugin, you need to choose I don’t use any of them.
Use WooCommerce with WooCommerce Software Add-on
On the following screen, select the platform you are already using.
On the next screen, Appsero will ask you how do you want to manage your licensing going forward
- If you want to use Appsero to handle licensing for future sales – select “Use Appsero“
- If you want to use Software Licensing to generate licenses but want to use Appsero for license checking only, select “Keep using existing license generator and use Appsero for license checking only“
The redirected page will show you a message that “I have installed Appsero Helper plugin”.
When you click on the “I have installed Appsero Helper plugin” you will get an API key.
Now, to verify the API key, you need to install the Appsero Helper plugin on your website. Then, you need to navigate to Admin-> Settings-> Appsero Helper. Then you need to paste the API key from Appsero to your website and hit the Connect button.
Now, when you click the Verify button, it will give you a message that the connection is successful.
Now, you need to select your website that you connected with Appsero.
After selecting the website, you need to select your existing project on your website. If you are getting any error in this step, we recommend adding your product already to your store.
After adding your project, you need to hit the Next button to complete.
That’s it. Rest is the same as adding a Premium plugin or theme. You can get help from this documentation.
Choosing License Validity of Each Product
After you have gone ahead and added your Appsero Client, head over to Settings -> Pricing. Make sure the pricing section mirrors your product information like your WooCommerce product.
Also, make sure to change activation limits
That’s how you can use WooCommerce with Appsero as the license manager. If you face any issue, feel free to send an email to
