  • Under Plugins, click the “Add New” sub-menu

  • Click the “Install Now” button on the ACPT Lite plugin (should be the first one)

  • After installation, you will find a new menu item "ACPT Lite"

Method 2: FTP

Once you have purchased an ACPT Pro plan, you can manage your license activation, account information, and billing information via our integrated licensing system.

Purchase license

Navigate to the checkout page and choose your plan.

Once your payment is done, you will receive the invoice from Paddle and a reset password email from ACPT.

Follow the instructions to set up a new password, and then log in to your dashboard.

Manage license

After you have purchased a Pro license, you can manage everything related to that license in the ACTP User Dashboard.

That's the central place to manage everything related to your license(s), for example:

  • Move your license to a different site;

  • Upgrade your license to a different license;

  • Update your profile details;

  • Cancel your subscription.

Now download the plugin from your dashboard and install it as usual. After installation, you will find a new menu item "ACPT".

NOTE: When the Premium version is activated the Lite version is automatically deactivated if the free version is already installed.

Activating the license

Once the ACPT plugin is installed click on the Account link and should activate the license.

Use your ACPT email and your license code:

Done! You're ready to go!
