If you are updating the license to your already-purchased addon, then follow the blue hyperlink labeled ‘Click to renew an existing license’ and follow the prompts.

Also, If you have a discount coupon you can redeem it by clicking the hyperlink where it says ‘Click to enter it’ beside ‘Have a discount code?’ and click ‘Apply’ the discount will be activated.

NOTE: Licenses last for exactly one year after the date of purchase and they are needed in order to receive updates to the addon. Without a current license, you will have to purchase a license renewal in order to update the addon.


After completing the purchase, you should see a page with your purchase confirmation, and also an emailed receipt will be sent to you within five minutes. Both the Purchase Confirmation page and the email sent to you with the subject ‘Purchase Receipt’ will contain blue links to where you can access and download the .zip files the contain the addons. If you bought multiple addons, then click on each addon one by one to download.

* Note: Occasionally, certain browsers with certain settings will automatically unzip the file as you download resulting in just the files. If you do not see a zip file after downloading, try using a different browser to download your addons.


After downloading the .zip file, go into your WordPress dashboard and click on ‘Plugin’ and click ‘Add New’.
