How to download & install paid addons

Once the addon has been purchased and downloaded you should have a zipped package ready for installation. You will also receive a download link at the email address you've used to purchase the addon.

Installing the addon via your WordPress dashboard

Installing the addon is just like any other WordPress plugin. Navigate to your WordPress “Plugins -> add new” page, inside of your WordPress dashboard, and follow these instructions:

  1. Click the "upload plugin" button.
  2. Select the downloaded zipped package file.
  3. Press the "install now" button.
  4. Activate the addon.

The addon is now activated and ready to be configured.

Installing manually via FTP

Once you have the zip file, open it (typically by double clicking it) and inside you'll file a folder with the name of the addon you've purchased.

Use your favorite file transfer tool (e.g Filezilla) to copy that FOLDER (not just its contents) to your server, and place it in folder


Then go to the plugins page in your WordPress site and you should see the addon in the plugin list. Click the Activate link and you'll be ready to use the addon.
