Automatic subscription-based licensing with Instant Protection PLUS 3 and SOLO Server
  • Product: Protection PLUS, SOLO Server
  • Length: 55 minutes
  • Intended for: New, existing, and potential customers

> Click for Description

Many companies, large and small, are starting to introduce subscription-based licensing models for their software applications. This creates lower upfront costs for customers to acquire your software licenses with predictable monthly expenditures to keep the subscription active.

The SoftwareKey System has all of the tools you need to automate software subscription management, including a recurring billing engine – a feature of SOLO Server which will attempt to bill your customers via credit card at prescribed intervals. An approved transaction will provide your customer with unencumbered use of your software; an ultimately declined billing attempt, however, will cause access to your software to be revoked.

This webinar is intended for all audiences (including new, existing, and potential SoftwareKey customers) and will demonstrate how to set up both Instant Protection PLUS 3 and SOLO Server to automate subscription management. This presentation, to be supplemented with an interactive Q & A session immediately afterward, will focus on the following topics:

  • Overview of subscription based licensing
  • Credit processing requirements for recurring billing
  • Configuring the transaction fee product for recurring billing transactions
  • Configuring payment plans for monthly and quarterly billing
  • Configuring a product for recurring billing by linking it to a payment plan
  • Configuring Instant Protection PLUS 3 periodic expiration settings
  • Placing your first test order
  • Managing customer recurring billing information through the administration interface
  • Customer license portal features allowing customers to manage their recurring billing information
