This sounds very interesting.May 18, 2011 at 10:15 am #23176andrejayMember
Hi Amin, is there any new on integrated licensing … Like Frank I have products just waiting … if it is likely to take some time please say so I can look at an alternative approach.

Hi Amin — I’ll add my voice of support for you releasing/selling this plugin — any updates?
Thanks, ChrisMay 24, 2011 at 3:36 am #23178DThrasherMember
This plugin sounds very close to what I’d need as well. In my case, I’m selling an installed software product, and I need to provide a license key in the response email either by calling an external license service or my reading a text file containing available license keys.
So count me as another vote for releasing/selling this plugin or addon.May 24, 2011 at 11:45 pm #23179amin007Participant
@DThrasher – “I need to provide a license key in the response email either by calling an external license service or my reading a text file containing available license keys.” – You won’t need a license manager to do this. You can do a little tweak to call your script that generates the license from eStore’s post payment processing script then add the key returned by that script to the email.July 13, 2011 at 7:19 pm #23180LincolnMember
@amin007 How can I purchase this activation plug-in from you? I have a product that is launching asap. Thanks.September 12, 2011 at 6:59 am #23181mikru2010Member
I’m looking for a tool that will license and protect for instance wordpress plugins and / or themes or other software from unauthorized / non-licensed use.
Sounds like your license manager plugin would be a good fit.
Do you still plan to release / sell your license manager plugin?
Can you give an estimation when it will be ready / released?September 13, 2011 at 4:53 am #23182
Yeah I plan to do that but I just didn’t get any time to fully complete this project. I will dedicate some time for the license manager after I release the next plugin.September 24, 2011 at 2:34 am #23183detoxMember
@admin – I have seen a number of posts that state you can tweak the post processing scripts to run a custom license key generator, but have found no instructions on how to actually do that.
Let’s assume that I have a custom php function that returns a string that is the key (e.g., “XXXX-XXXX-XXXX”): generate_custom_license_key($name, $email, $transactionID);
Internally, the function queries a database for an existing key matching that parameters, and if one is not found, it generates the key. Regardless, it does return the license key as a string.
I would like to display this license key in both the email that gets sent to the buyer, as well as on the “thank you” page.
Where exactly would I call my script to make this happen? Should I be modifying paypal.php? eStore_process_payment_data.php?September 24, 2011 at 3:20 am #23184
Simply call this function to generate your license key then add this data to the email body. Search for the following line of code in “paypal.php” file and you can manipulate the content of the email body field value:
$body = stripslashes(str_replace($tags,$vals,$email_body));September 27, 2011 at 6:11 am #23185detoxMember
Thanks for the quick response! That did the trick!October 1, 2011 at 12:28 am #23186SMazMember
If you need some Beta Testers for this – you’ve got one with over 20 years of development experience anxiously awaiting the release of this – for Beta or for sale.October 1, 2011 at 1:19 am #23187
If you want to license a WordPress plugin or theme then the plugin is ready to handle that. If you want to try that let me know and I will arrange something.January 8, 2012 at 8:28 pm #23188pmaiorMember
Any updates on this project ? I am looking for a license manager as well.
Detox, care to share your function ? I could probably write my own, but my php skills are not that great.
Also where would you put that function inside of wp-estore ?January 9, 2012 at 8:05 pm #23189midnightdonkeyMember
I’m interested in this as well for my WordPress Theme. Is it possible to try out what you have developed already?
One question though – I’ve already sold nearly 300 copies, would I be able to mass email my existing customers their unique key?
