consider this scenario:
i have 10 available licences for a product. A buyer purchases 2 licenses (qty 2) for a product.
How can i automatically deliver those licenses after the purchase so i can have 8 available licenses after the transaction, ready to be purchased by another buyer?

Update: A serial/license key selling feature has been added to the plugin. Details of this feature here:
WP eStore does not deal with software licenses directly. If you tell WP eStore to sell 10 copies of this product it will make sure that it only sells 10 copies (you set this restriction in the inventory control section of the product). Now, for the license generation after the payment most people take one of the following approaches:
1. Create a stand alone script that takes PayPal’s IPN and does all the license generation and sending of the license to the customer and all those (everything to do with the license).
2. Now you simply tell WP eStore to forward the PayPal’s IPN to the script mentioned in step 1 and all done.
1. Modify the WP eStore’s IPN handling script to do your license generation stuff before the email is sent out to the customer.January 7, 2012 at 6:56 pm #32091
Has anybody done this ? I am interested in licensing my downloads as well.
How do you tell wp-estore to forward ipn number in the above scenario ?January 8, 2012 at 6:57 am #32092
You can tell eStore to forward the IPN to your script by specifying it here:
WP eStore Settings -> 3rd Party Integration tab -> POST IPN to a 3rd Party ApplicationJanuary 9, 2012 at 8:37 pm #32093
I will play with that setting. Thanks.
Sounds like a fairly easy script to create.
I am assuming you would use a stand alone database with this as well.
I did notice the mention of a licensing plugin being developed. That would be ideal if it integrated with wpestore.
Any progress on that front ?

“I am assuming you would use a stand alone database with this as well.” – This is upto you (depends on your need).
We do have a license management plugin in the works but it can only be used to license WordPress plugins and themes at the moment (we don’t have the resources to support that plugin just yet).
We are looking to add a simple serial key selling feature to eStore. It will be a basic one so it may not suit everyone’s need. Basically, you will be able to place your serial keys/license keys in a text file then eStore will retrieve one key at a time when a customer makes a purchase and add it in the email.January 15, 2012 at 3:27 pm #32095
That sounds like it might be adequate. Is there a place on the website I can check for updates when they are ready ? I would also be interested in the licensing plugin if it can be used for php scripts/downloads.

WP eStore’s changelog will be updated. Since this is a feature that I am going to add within the next 5 to 6 weeks, you should be able to contact us in 6 weeks time and get an update.

I purchased WP-eStore a few days ago and have got it working. But I cannot find the Serial Number/License Key Settings (Click to expand) anywhere in my version of WP-eStore. Where is it, please? I’m running version 6.5.9.
Many thanksMay 13, 2012 at 7:37 am #32098
We just added this so you may need to get a new build. You can get a new build from here:May 13, 2012 at 6:29 pm #32099
Thanks for this, Amin and team. It works superbly! Saves a lot of manual work.
ps My serial keys are in a notepad file, 1 serial key per line. Do you know a quick way of replacing the ‘enter’ for commas? That way I can just copy/paste my serials straight into WP-eStore. Just popping the question and trying my luck. I know this has nothing to do with your great plugin!May 22, 2012 at 3:30 pm #32100sarnorealroiMember
what if I want to allow my customers to install on unlimitied blogs? Can one key be reused?
Thank YouMay 23, 2012 at 1:48 am #32101
This serial key selling feature only issues one serial key to your *customer* when they purchase the product. It doesn’t (as a matter of fact it can’t) manage how a serial key will be used in your software (this is something that you as the software developer needs to address in your software).
With that said, I don’t see why one key cannot be reused if are going to allow usage on an unlimited sites.May 27, 2012 at 10:40 am #32102
I’ve just worked out how to get my 10,000 serial numbers to be comma separated. I’ve added them to the product. But I have a problem. In the email to the customer, the serial number is missing it’s last 4 digits!
Basically, I have a 16 digit serial number, split into sets of 4, separated by hyphens. So I have 10,000 of these, all separated by commas, as per the instructions.
But in the email, theh customer only sees the first 3 sets of digits plus the last hyphen!
Please help.May 27, 2012 at 11:16 am #32103
Actually, I’ve just seen what the problem is!
I’ve deleted all but 1 serial and it works fine (as before). Started adding batches of 1000 serial keys and found that I can only add about 3000 serial keys. I tried to add 10,000. That’s fair enough. I just hope that when the last serial is issued, then the system goes back to the top and issues serials from the top again.
The final thing I noticed was that even though I tried to add 10,000 emails, it only let me add a little more the 3000 BUT the last serial had lost its final 4 digits after the hyphen. HENCE, I SUSPECT, WHY ALL SERIAL NUMBERS WERE BEING ISSUED WITH THE LAST 4 DIGITS MISSING!
Apologies for burdening you with this, key master, but I hope this post is helpful to others….
