What if my business is selling an intangible product or service that requires a license to be provided to customers? Well, we have you covered in this instance as well.
To activate the feature please go to WooCommerce > Settings > Products Tab > Product Types & Related Options>Product Licensing
Once enabled, when customizing your product, under Product Data regardless of which product type you choose, now a new Licensing option is available.
If selected, in the left hand side under Product Data you can define the Licensing section.
License Type – select the type of license for the product
Digital content: Used when selling media content online (e.g. photo or video in a media file format)
Regular software: Downloadable program (Activation limit – number of uses before no longer available, Invoice license key – display license key in invoice)
Web software: Online product/service (Activation limit – number of uses before no longer available, Invoice license key – display license key in invoice) For this option you can define the time availability of the license, either lifetime or per year.
License key prefix: Text field to define the characters in front of the exact license
Keeping track of the licenses is easier by using [ cw_customer_licenses ] in the Account Endpoints, for it to be displayed in the customer’s account and also a new Licenses section will be available under the WooCommerce menu.
