How to Transfer Your WPForms License to Another Domain

Would you like to move your WPForms license to a different URL? You may need to transfer a license to a new domain if launching from a staging site or if you’d prefer to use WPForms on a different site.

In this guide, we’ll show you how to deactivate a WPForms license on one site so you can activate it on another site.

  1. Deactivate a WPForms License on Current Site
  2. Install WPForms and Activate License on New Site

1. Deactivate a WPForms License on Current Site

There are two ways to deactivate a WPForms license: from your site’s WordPress admin area, or from your WPForms Account page.

For this approach, you’ll first need to log into your WordPress site.

Once you’re logged in, you can open WPForms » Settings to view your site’s License Key field.

On the right side, click the Deactivate Key button.

How to Deactivate Site License From WPForms Account
If you’d prefer to deactivate your license through your WPForms account, you’ll first need to log into the WPForms site.

On your account’s Overview tab, you’ll see a list of any licenses you’ve purchased. Under the license key, click the Manage Sites link.

2. Install WPForms and Activate License on New Site

Once you’ve deactivated your license key for the previous domain, you’re ready to activate it on your new site.

First, make sure you’ve installed the WPForms plugin on this new site.

After the plugin is installed and activated, you’ll be able to verify the site’s license key within WordPress.

That’s it! Now you can transfer your WPForms license key from one site to another.
