What is Software Billing Panel?
Software Billing Panel is really a web site that allows to handle orders and customers assigned with your software.
If you are software developers, and you want consolidate all incoming orders for all your existing applications and automatically process online activation, orders managing, customers manging, then Software Billing Panel is your choice!
What can Software Billing Panel do?
- It can accept incoming orders from automatic registrars like Shareit, Avangate, Regnow, Plimus, automatically generate licenses/registration keys and send them to user. From the other side, if you want to create an order manually, you can do freely
- Consolidate all customers that are using your software, allow simple web interface for customers to access own account with new versions update, license information and so on
- If your software based on a "subscription for new versions" model then Software Billing Panel allows automatically process subscription process and does not allow user to download newer version if subscription is expired
- You do not need to use email confirmations for users regarding new versions update, users may simply log in to their account and download latest available versions. Also, if you want to note all of users regarding some important changes or versions update you may use New feature or just generate automatically emails and send them to customers
How does it work:
Once the system is configured, it is waiting for an incoming orders from registrars. Registrars should be set to call remote keys generate (that named as Purchase Link) when new orders comes.
1. Once order comes, the system processes it, and based on a email of the order it creates (or uses existing) new client account. Also, depending on the settings, control panel sends to user Login Information (so client may come, log in and download available version), generate license/registration information or send an Activation Id (if Online Activation is used)
2. Once client gets this email, he logs in to the Control Panel, download available version and registers it (or activates of Online Activation is used)
