As a vendor, you need just three steps to integrate NetLicensing into your product. Once the product delivered to customers, the customers purchase their licenses directly at NetLicensing Shop, without the need of further product vendor intervention. Payments for the licenses are credited directly to the account of the product vendor through the payment service built into NetLicensing Shop.
The following steps describe main integration and operation tasks:
Plan: No matter if you already have a product or plan to create a new one, NetLicensing can be added at every stage. All you need is to clearly formulate your licensing needs.
Setup: NetLicensing Management Console (NMC) is the integrated online administration center that allows you to control all licensing aspects of your products. Once you have decided on the licensing scheme, log in to NetLicensing Management Console and create desired licensing configuration. You can get back to NetLicensing Management Console at any time to alter your configuration or monitor the licenses. Besides, NetLicensing business intelligence module will consolidate your product usage information in regular reports.
Integrate: Your product needs to communicate with NetLicensing in order to get the actual licensing information. Here comes NetLicensing API into play. With just a single request to NetLicensing API your software receives the complete licensing information for the specified customer. The licensing information is already processed and conveniently formed for direct use in your product’s business logic.
