HI! I’ve looked everywhere and I can’t find where to enter serial numbers. Sorry if it’s really obvious, but I can’t for the life of me find it!!!
But my product entry page looks the same as this: http://www.tipsandtricks-hq.com/ecommerce/addedit-products-screen-90
Where do I enter the serial numbers?
Thank you!January 7, 2013 at 3:28 pm #52846wzpModerator
Look for a field labelled “Serial Number” in the Add/Edit Products interface.March 17, 2018 at 6:52 pm #52847
I have a question regarding serial numbers. I have the part working where buyer purchases digital content from page and receives email with serial code. What I cannot figure out is how buyer enters serial number to access product when back on the web page? The product is an image from my media library with a link to my google drive that opens a map. The media library image exists on the page and it works, but I want to be able to collect a payment to be able to open the image/link. In current state when buyer comes back to site after purchase the media library image on the page opens up without requirement of a serial number. Does use of the serial number require being a member? Does the product need to be displayed on the page versus the library image (so there’s an association with a serial number), if so is there instruction on that. I’m a newbie and purchased WordPress a few days ago. I’ve scoured the forum and figured it was time to ask. Thanks.March 18, 2018 at 4:55 am #52848adminKeymaster
Serial numbers are mainly used for software products. This is not something you can use with an static image. There is no online business (that I know of) that distributes images using a serial key (it just doesn’t work that way). So you should re-think how you want to distribute your images.
Usually, you sell the images to your customers and they get a digital copy of the image after the purchase. Why do you want serial key there?
We do an a specific plugin that handles selling of image. If you look at the demo of that plugin, it can give you an idea of the type of setups people go for when selling images online:March 18, 2018 at 4:50 pm #52849
Thanks. In this particular case I do want to redistribute images, I want to charge a fee to open a link to a map on my google drive (the link happened to be embedded in an image in my example). The map opens up and shows gps position on a trail, ensuring user they can stay on course. Is there a short code that might charge a fee for user to open a link to a map? The user would return to use same map again during the planning and execution of the trip; i.e., multiple times, but would not be charged for multiple uses.
In re-thinking this I’ve thought about subscriptions. I have not yet used the subscription short-code but would that allow a user to ‘subscribe’ to a single map link for an annual or one-time fee?
I hope to be selling images on the site soon, so the wordpress-photo-seller-plug in is right up my alley, thanks!March 18, 2018 at 4:51 pm #52850
*….do not want to redistribute images,…

okay, I think one of the following 2 options will work for you:
1) Use the pay per view feature of estore:
It basically allows the customer to click on a link after they make a payment. The can click on the link a few times before it expires (you can specify how many times they can use that link).
2) Use a membership system. When you want a user to be recognized by the system and then give them access to things on your site based on their membership permission, a membership system is the way to go. The following plugin can do this:
So instead of selling a link, you will be selling them a membership. They can then log into your site as a member and access posts/pages that contains links, images, video etc.
Watch the video tutorials which will give you a good idea of what it does then you can decide.
