Installing Addons and Activate Licenses

Why do you need a license?

Licenses are required to have automatic update notices for addons and update them with a single click, without FTP access.

Also a valid license is required if you want to have premium support. Premium support request message can be easily sent in WP BASE admin using the form in  WP BASE → Help → Support page. When you use this form, we will automatically get information about activated licenses and Addons and system info about your installation.

Purchasing an addon on our website will give you unlimited download right to the addon file and a license key for activation on 1 or 5 or unlimited websites, depending on the variation you have purchased.

Downloading Addon File

After your purchase, when you click the Return to Merchant link on PayPal website, you will be redirected to Purchase Confirmation page. On this page you will see your license key and link for the download file. Click the link to zip file and install the addon to your website like any other WordPress addon.
