Automatic license renewals in SOLO Server when using a 3rd-party e-commerce solution.

Payment plans are supported through SOLO Server's integrated eCommerce. We recommend using PayPal's PayFlow Pro payment gateway.

If you are using a different solution, it is still possible to use SOLO Server for automatic license renewals.

You or your developer would implement logic on your web server that uses SOLO Server's web services to achieve integration with a third-party e-commerce platform/service. Here are some more specific, high-level points:

  • First, you need to pick one of two approaches with regards to these subscriptions. We generally recommend approach 2 as described here, because it is generally simpler.
  • You would use the XmlLicenseService.UpdateActivationFields method to update a license as needed, when a subscription is activated or deactivated.
  • We strongly recommend you require validating the license with SOLO Server periodically:

Also, note that if you are using FastSpring for your e-commerce, we have built-in FastSpring integration.
