How do I renew my subscription?
If auto-renew is enabled (which is the default), your subscription renews on the due date and your card is charged. Email notification and receipt are sent to confirm you paid for another year.
You are sent a renewal reminder email 60, 30, 14, 7 and 2 days prior to the subscription renewal date. You can also find renewal information on the My Subscriptions page. These emails are also sent if auto-renew is disabled.
How much does it cost to renew my subscription?
Subscriptions are billed annually at 100% of the purchase price. So if you paid say $49 for a license, the renewal cost will also be $49.
What do I receive when renewing my subscription?
Renewing your subscription entitles you to support and automatic updates to your product for a further 12 months from the date of renewal. This ensures compatibility with newer versions of WordPress, WooCommerce, and BigCommerce, as well as bug fixes and new features and enhancements to the product.
What happens if my subscription expires or is deactivated?
If your subscription expires you will no longer be able to download product updates or receive support. You may still continue to use the current version of the product you last downloaded before your subscription expired.
If you are having trouble with the product, go to the product page and check the Changelog to see if an update may help address the issue. When a product is not working, updating should always be the first step when troubleshooting.
How do I transfer my subscription to another domain?
To transfer your subscription simply deactivate and delete the domain you no longer wish to use and enter the replacement domain in its place. You can do that within the subscription section of your CommerceGurus account.
Remember not to include the https or www part when entering a domain.
Can I transfer a subscription to a client, colleague or friend?
No. Subscriptions are not transferable across accounts at this time.
What is a license key?
When you purchase a product subscription we generate a unique license for your product subscription. You’re probably used to getting license keys for digital products already and having to enter them somewhere to activate your product. Our domain activation method means you’ll never need to enter your key anywhere to activate your subscription. But, there may be occasions where a member of our support team ask you to confirm your product license key when you submit support questions. That’s all you’ll ever need this key for at this time.
