Instructions to Activate your MailPoet Key

After you have subscribed to any MailPoet plan (either a Premium License or one of the available sending plans from our Sending Service) you will receive an activation key to activate the Premium features and/or the MailPoet sending method.

Here are the steps to validate your MailPoet activation key.

Make sure you have the latest version of MailPoet installed which is available as a free download:
Grab the  activation k ey from your account page here Once inside your account's dashboard, click on the "Manage" link and you'll see the key:
Go to your WordPress dashboard > MailPoet > Settings > Key Activation tab, paste the key in the field, and then "Verify": 

Key activation will not work if your website is on a localhost environment, behind a firewall or if you're trying to activate the key for an IP address.  Check here other known errors when validating a MailPoet key and how to fix them.

After your key has been validated, the MailPoet Sending Service will be automatically activated and a test email will be sent to you (if the MailPoet Sending Service is included in your plan) and you'll be able to download and install the MailPoet 3 Premium plugin:

You need to keep both  MailPoet 3 and MailPoet 3 Premium plugins installed and activated if you want to have access to the Premium features. If you have only the Premium plugin installed, the MailPoet plugin won't work.

When clicking on the "Download MailPoet Premium plugin", you'll get a .zip file. Go to your  WordPress dashboard > Plugins > Add New and click on the " Upload Plugin" button:

Upload the .zip file from the MailPoet 3 Premium plugin:

Getting the Premium plugin from your MailPoet 3 account

If you can't download the Premium plugin from the  WordPress dashboard > MailPoet > Settings > Key Activation tab for some reason, you'll be able to get the .zip file for the Premium plugin on your MailPoet account

Then follow the steps to manually upload it on the  WordPress dashboard > Plugins page.
