Native WordPress updates from our repository server
When authors send us their product, we will store it on our repository server. This is how we can serve customers native updates directly in WordPress without them having to manually download newer versions of items from our website. This only applies to plugins and themes.
Our platform automatically generates a licence key for the customer when they purchase an item. All licence keys can be found in the customer’s account dashboard. All licences are valid for 1 year and must be renewed in order to continue receiving updates. Read more about licences.
Gutenberg Market Plugin
Customers must install our Gutenberg Market plugin on the website where they plan to install their purchased plugins or themes. Without our Gutenberg Market plugin installed they will be able to use a purchased plugin or theme just fine but they will not receive native updates when a new version is released. Therefore, it is highly recommended that customers install it. It can be found and downloaded within their account dashboard.
In order for customers to sync our plugin with their Gutenberg Market account, they must generate an Auth Token in their customer account dashboard on our website. When customers enter this along with their username in the Gutenberg Market plugin settings page, it will list all of their valid licences which they can activate to a domain. Read more about auth tokens.
No-code licencing solution
Our plugin doesn’t require authors to add any additional code to their plugins or themes. It simply just works. This is because all the clever stuff is happening in our plugin. Therefore, if authors currently have any licencing code in their plugin or theme, they can simply strip it away from the version they provide us.
We want to make it as simple as possible for authors to be able to start earning from their hard work, that’s why we have opted for a no-code licencing approach.
If you have any special requirements or a rare licencing setup in your product, please tell us about it so we can work with you to hopefully find a solution.
