Entering License Information

When entering license information, please reference the Thank You Email.

Copy/Pasting from the email usually works fine. However, if any troubles are encountered, it may help to enter the information manually.

(Example License Details)


There are many checks and verifications to ensure the license details being entered are in the correct format. If one of these checks fails, an alert will be shown providing further information.

All fields are shown as dots/asterisks because some licenses are installed on client sites, and in this case, the information should not be readily available. This keeps your information safe! If you believe any information has been entered incorrectly, please delete the entire field and start over. This will ensure the correct information is saved.

Once all information has been entered successfully, click on Activate License at the top of the screen.


If  all information has been entered correctly, the following message will show at the top of the screen; Click Complete Installation


Clicking Complete Installation will redirect to the WP Edit Pro admin settings page. At this point the plugin is successfully registered and activated, and all settings are available.
