Automatic installation

The automatic installation is the easiest option. WordPress will handle the file transfer, and you won’t need to leave your web browser. To do an automatic installation of Enwikuna License Manager, log in to your WordPress dashboard, navigate to the Plugins menu, and click ‘Add New’.

In the search field type ‘Enwikuna License Manager’ then click ‘Search Plugins’. Once you’ve found us, you can view details about it such as the point release, rating, and description. Most importantly of course, you can install it by! Click ‘Install Now’, and WordPress will take it from there.

Manual installation

There are 2 ways to perform the manual installation:

WordPress admin dashboard file upload
1. Download Enwikuna License Manager
2. Upload the ZIP file through the ‘Plugins > Add New > Upload Plugin’ screen inside your WordPress dashboard
3. Activate the plugin when asked after upload

Which product types are support?

We currently support simple & variable products. If you are using WooCommerce Subscriptions, you can also use simple & variable subscriptions as well.

Why is there a paid extension?

Maintaining and developing a business software is very time consuming. About 4 people work on such a software in the background. In order to be able to realize a further development according to the wishes of the customers in the long run, it is indispensable to outsource the particularly complex part. This is the only way to ensure further development.

Can I connect an external database for storing my licenses?

We’re currently working a feature that will support external storing of your licenses by giving you the option to connect to an external database.

Is it possible to perform an offline activation of licenses?

This feature is one of our main requested features which will be available soon!

I really do love the WooCommerce Subscriptions & Trial feature. It improves my workflow and helps me gain more customer by offering a trial license. Furthermore, the REST API does a great job including a user login and JWT authorization. They even helped me to implement custom functionality for free – never experienced this before.

Enwikuna License is a game-changer. With its user-friendly interface and seamless integration, keeping track of licenses has never been easier. The customization options cater perfectly to our needs, and the responsive customer support is a huge plus.

I managed the integration of the licensing solution by Enwikuna in our C++ software. It was very easy to do, test and manage everything, even with limited cloud engineering and server knowledge. The code snippets (available in different languages) really ease up the integration process. The JSON file for Postman allows for immediate testing. The documentation is done well and delievers all the info needed.Important to mention that Johannes was always available for help and tutorials, indicating an amazing and very personal customer support (one of the best i've come across).
