Learning WooCommerce API Manger

What is WooCommerce API Manger?

WooCommerce API Manger is used to secure your software with API License Key activation, deactivation and automatic updates of WordPress plugins and/or themes. However it can also be used for some applications outside of WordPress as well, but we will be talking mostly about how to use it with a custom WordPress plugin.

You need to at least make sure you have at least PHP Version 7.00. Here's how you can check from the linux command line:

php -v

Type the above command and press enter and you should get results that look similar to this:

Alternative Solution to WooCommerce API Manager

You may have noticed this article isn't complete. That is because I decided to go with a different system for selling WordPress plugins on my site with API keys, WooCommerce didn't provide the level of support I needed and their documentation was poor. I discovered Easy Digital Downloads which was much simpler to deploy. Easy Digital Downloads(EDD) in combination with the EDD Software Licensing add-on and the EDD Instant Updater for plugins that I developed myself, became the ultimate solution for selling WordPress plugins outside of WordPress.org. If anyone is interested in how I did it, email me at linian11@yahoo.com and I can assist you.
