After your purchase, you’ll receive a download link and license key.

To install FacetWP, upload the ZIP file into Plugins > Add New > Upload Plugin, or manually extracting the plugin folder into /wp-content/plugins/.

License activation

When activated, FacetWP will notify you when new updates are available.

To activate the plugin, browse to Settings > FacetWP > Settings, fill in the “License key” box, then hit the “Activate” button.

Other ways to activate

If you’d prefer to keep your license key in code, we provide 2 other options:

// added to your wp-config.php
define( 'FACETWP_LICENSE_KEY', 'xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx' );
// added to your (child) theme's functions.php
add_filter( 'facetwp_license_key', function( $license_key ) {
    return 'xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx';

Plugin updates not appearing?

If updates aren’t appearing, click “Activate” within Settings > FacetWP > Settings, then click “Check again” within Dashboard > Updates. This should clear WP’s updater cache.

If that doesn’t resolve the issue, check the following:

  • Clear all caching and optimization plugins (WP Total Cache, WP Rocket, WP Super Cache, Autoptimize, etc).
  • Some hosts (Pagely, WP Engine, Siteground, Flywheel, etc) and services (Cloudflare) provide server-side caching that may also need to be cleared.


By default, your license will auto-renew after 1 year.

If you’d like to cancel your subscription, log into the My Account page and click the “Cancel” button beside the active subscription.

To manually renew, enter your existing license key into the “Discount” box during checkout. Just make sure that your license doesn’t already have an active subscription.

A manual renewal will add 1 year to the expiration date. If the license has expired, the new expiration date will be 1 year from the renewal purchase date.
