- Copy this generated Key and apply it to your store license section.
How to activate the plugin using the license key?In plugin configuration section, click "License" button. Apply your activation key to the respective store URL. Click "Save". This should provide "Green Tick" at the right side of key box, it indicates that the license is active and enabled.
Can I change my Store URL after licence key is generated?No, the licence key is specific to the store URL, you will need to generate new licence key if store URL is changed. Though the Extension version can be changed to get the new Key.
I have two environments staging and production. Staging environment which works on subdomain e.g. test.mystore.com and production on mystore.com, so can I use same key for both?No, both are different URLs so you will need separate keys. At present for few plugins we support upto three license keys on one purchase, so you can use one for the staging environment and another for production environment. If you are looking for multiple licenses then please verify the same with our support team
What is the validity of License Key?License Key will work for ever till the Extension version or Store URL remains same.
Can I use same License Key if I upgrade my NopCommerce version but use the same extension version?Yes, if the downloaded extension supports the NopCommerce version and if you are using same extension version then the key stays valid.
Why license key shows invalid?Verify if the Store URL and Extension version is correct in the order details (My account > Order > Details).

So we strongly recommend to store the keys where you can find it even if it is accidentally deleted from your order details.
Will my Extension work with the license key even after 1 Year of support?Yes, it will work till you change the Store URL or version.
Can I use the Extension on my local system?The Full license plugin do not need license to run the Store on 'Localhost'. But you cannot use it while debugging because the package contains production build and do not contain information needed for debugging.
Why I am Not getting New License button?Probably your license has expired. You need to purchase new license for the key. If this is not the case then please contact support at contact us
Can I download plugin after license expires?No, package cannot be downloaded after license has expired. This is because new version will need new license key to activate. So, please keep the license Key and package safe after license has expired.
