For VIP Access Passes, you do not need an update key for each individual plugin or theme. You only need to enter the name and update key for your VIP Access Pass. Your VIP Access Pass update key applies to every plugin and theme on 99Plugs. One entry in the 99Plugs Update Manager and your good to go.

After successfully activating your update keys, you’ll get hassle-free updates for your premium plugins and themes right in your WordPress Dashboard, just like any other WordPress updates.

It doesn’t get any easier than that!

IMPORTANT NOTES

  • All update keys get entered into the 99Plugs Update Manager, not in the themes or plugins themselves. License keys from the plugin author are not related to the update keys from us. Everything works through our system.
  • You can simply ignore plugin or theme specific license key requests. You do not need license keys to install or use them on your websites, regardless of how many websites you have. A license key is only required if you want to receive support and updates directly from the author of the plugin or theme. They do not restrict the functionality of the plugin or theme itself and will work perfectly fine without entering a license key. For more information, please see: My plugin or theme is not activating
  • Don’t forget to add the 99Plugs Update Manager (and update key) itself if you wish to receive updates for the updater plugin as well.
