License key

What will happen after the license key expires?

After the license key expires, you will still be able to utilize all Permalink Manager features without limitation. All custom permalinks, redirects, and plugin settings will remain unaffected. However, until you renew your license key, you will be unable to update the plugin to the most current version or request support.

It is not possible to purchase Permalink Manager Pro under a subscription model, thus the license keys are not automatically renewed. Therefore, you will not be charged for anything else after your license expires. However, unless you purchase a “lifetime” license or renew your key for another year, you will no longer be able to access customer support and access the plugin files.

Can a single-site license be used on development websites?

You can use the same license key on two separate domains, such as your development and production websites. Furthermore, subdomains and domain names that contain the words "dev", "staging" and "test" are not taken into account when considering the two-domain limit. This is because the update server's license validation system has been designed to ignore these types of domain names.

If you have more than two domains, you can use the same license key on all of them for a transitional period of up to 48 hours. During this time, you can switch the domains associated with the license key as often as needed (for example, when moving from a staging site to a production domain).

There is no need to re-activate or deactivate the domain because the old domain will automatically disappear from logs. The update server request logs are carefully inspected and analyzed in order to identify any potential abuse. Should any be found, your license key may be restricted, which will prevent you from using the automatic update feature of the plugin from within your WordPress admin dashboard.

How to renew or upgrade your license key?

You can check the expiry date of your license key in Permalink Manager settings or on "License info" page.

License key field

If you renew the license before it expires, the key will be prolonged in your favor for an additional year, starting with the expiry date. For instance, if you renew it on November 10, 2021 and it is good until December 15, 2021, the new expiry date will be December 15, 2021.

If you acquired a license key for a single year or one domain (ex. to test the plugin) you can still upgrade the license to any higher plan in a few clicks and you will pay just the difference in the price.

For example, if you purchase the lowest variant, the price of an upgrade to a higher variant will be automatically reduced by the 45 EUR you have already paid

How do I reload the expiry date from the license server?

The Permalink Manager license expiry date is checked by your WordPress website every 12 hours. After renewing or extending the validity of your license key, it may take some time for the new expiration date to be updated from the server. During this period, an old expiry date could still be displayed in its admin section.

To speed up this process, you can manually flush and refresh the license info on your site by clicking "Check for updates" button located in "Plugins" admin section of WordPress.

Do you have a VAT-EU number?

Paddle automatically will apply VAT (value added tax) rate applicable in your country. However, if you have a valid VAT-EU number, you may have it deducted from the final price before you pay.

If you require an invoice and have a valid VAT-EU number, please enter it during the checkout procedure. After entering your email address in the checkout form, you will see a "Add VAT Number" button on the final screen where you may select a payment method.

The tax amount will be refunded in max. 12 hours after it is confirmed by Paddle.

Why do I use Paddle to collect payments?

Paddle operates as a Merchant of Record and handles all taxes (VAT, etc.) that should be collected from normal consumers (non-B2B transactions) in EU. Building a system to verify and store customer data in compliance with current EU tax legislation, as well as making the shop VAT-MOSS compliant, would be excessively costly and difficult for a small business like mine.

In brief, when you acquire the license, you buy it from Paddle (Merchant of Record, intermediary/reseller). Technically, Paddle issues invoices, charges my clients and collects VAT tax from them. Every month, all the single transactions are totalled up and Paddle deducts its fees and commissions. After that, I can generate a VAT invoice for Paddle that gives me the money in a single wire transfer.
