    Hey boys and girls..I’m building a site and using a staging installation on a subdomain of the domain I’m using my Pro license on. I’ve only paid for a license to use on one site but when I’m setting up my staging site I of course need to add a license. When I add mine it says I’ve exceeded the number of activations. Is there anyway around this so I can use a staging and live site?

    Easy! Just don’t activate the license on your staging site. 🙂


    Hi @Ben,

    We have a site that two developers will be working on. We’ll also have a staging site, and of course (eventually) the live site.
    Is there a way for the two developers to share the same api key AND have it active on the stage site? In an ideal world we’d have one key that works for all three environments, such as:


    Do you know of a way we can do this using one api key? The project will rely heavily on the use of WC Vendors Pro and as such it wouldn’t be ideal if we have to keep deactivating and reactivating the keys in different environments.

    By the way – I’ve used this business account to purchase the pro plugin. The developer (and author of this post) is actually @trymedo who will be working with another developer on this project. I’ll post using my other account in second to ensure I get the follow-up replies 🙂


    Tom here – just signing up for replies…


    Replying to this post too – I am the 2nd Developer on this project.

    Hi Andy, Tom, & Jason! For Pro, the activation keys are for automatic updates. You dont need to activate Pro’s license on your staging or dev servers at all….


    Ah, ok then. It’s a little misleading when there’s a message in the admin area saying “The WC Vendors Pro license key has not been activated, so the plugin is inactive! Click here to activate the license key and the plugin.”

    I was under the impression the plugin wasn’t going to work correctly without the API key – thanks for clarifying!

    I think Jamie updated the license message for Pro v1.3.3 to be more accurate of a message. 🙂
