Cannot activate the license?

Check out a couple of things:

You activate your license before, somewhere else.

Please note that if your single site license is already activated on another domain, you cannot activate it on your new domain. So make sure you didn’t activate it anywhere else.

Your server PHP is lower than the minimum required version.

WP SMS is fully compatible with PHP version 7.3. If your PHP version is lower than 7.3, then the license activation process may fail.

make sure our servers and IP addresses are not blocked by a firewall or security plugin on your server. To check it out, contact your host provider and make sure this is not the case for you. If it caused the problem, ask them to whitelist the following address

Deactivated license

  1. Make sure the CURL is enabled on your PHP server. you can check through Tools » Site Health
  2. Disable all the third-party plugins, then go to the wp-SMS-pro page and update the license. If this resolved the issue, you need to activate the plugins one by one and check to see if the problem occurs again at each step until the trouble-making plugin is found.

Transfer the license

You can activate your license key on one domain at a time. But it is possible to transfer it if you have changed your main domain. Whenever you want to do that, you can ask us.

Activate the license on multiple domains

Activating your license on more than one website depends on the license you get. If it is for a single site, then you can use it only on one domain. In case you have more than one domain and need to use WP-SMS for all of them, there are some other plans for you: 2-5 sites and unlimited sites.

Use one license key across all network/multisite or on subdomains

You can use your license key on WordPress Multisite Network. Besides, it is possible to use your license key on your subdomains as well.

NOTE: If you install your WordPress in a subdirectory, you should enter that directory in the domain list as well as your website address.
