License key management
Through simple, intuitive interfaces Software Licensing allows site admins to easily view and manage customer license keys. Each individual license key includes a complete details screen that makes all relevant purchase and customer data easily accessible. License key generation can be enabled on each product in your store separately and every product gets its own settings, allowing you to easily sell many different product variations and non-software products at the same time.

The API includes methods for the following requests:
- License activation
- License deactivation
- Latest version / update details
- License validation
See the API documentation for an example.

Renewal discounts can be configured by site administrators. It helps incentivize customers to renew their license keys. Site administrators can also manually renew license keys on behalf of customers. You can manually email renewal notices to customers, or renew it any time. Software Licensing also provides a complete reporting view that displays a graph of license renewals and earnings.
