WordPress admin dashboard file upload
1. Download Enwikuna License Manager
2. Upload the ZIP file through the ‘Plugins > Add New > Upload Plugin’ screen inside your WordPress dashboard

It is hard to choose the reason for this 5-star rating because not only the software does what is expected and more, but the developer has demonstrated being astounding in both support and development (the product has been coded in an excellent way).

Ich war auf der Suche nach einem License Manager für meinen Shop. Habe mir ein paar angeschaut, getestet, und mich für den von Enwikuna entschieden. Neben dem Aufbau, Übersichtlichkeit und Funktionalität hat mich am meisten der erstklassiger und schneller Support überzeugt. 1A +++ Das Produkt spricht für sich! Vielen Dank nochmal an das gesamte Team von Enwikuna. Bleibt euch treu und weiter so! Danke.

Ich liebe dieses Plugin! Es ist so durchdacht – als Entscheidungshilfe hatte ich die Live Preview getestet – allein dieses Angebot fand ich schon klasse, so hatte ich die Möglichkeit mich vorher überall durchzuklicken. Jetzt hab ich es im Einsatz und bin wirklich begeistert. Aber was wirklich am besten ist: der Support. Ich hatte sofort Hilfe bekommen. Kann den Lizenz Manager wirklich nur jedem empfehlen. Man merkt wie viel Liebe und Arbeit in die Entwicklung gesteckt wurde.

I don’t sell software, I actually have a scuba diving business, so way do I need this plug in? The reality that you can use it for so munch more, not just for selling licenses. It’s a great alternative, well documented tool that helps you sell subscriptions and solves problems that are not in your ordinary flow or covered by mainstream plugins. As for the support team, simply the best, just write them in the chat, and for me specifically since I require different tags and usage they offered me help and kindly explained, to me the process step by step and I manage to solve my problem. Thank you and keep up the good work.
