You finally have everything you need to get started building your online business with WordPress Multisite and WP Ultimo.

Now, how do you install WP Ultimo?

Getting the plugin's .zip file

After finishing your WP Ultimo purchase, you will receive an email with the .zip file of our plugin and your license key.

Freemius email with WP Ultimo .zip file and your license key

Keep in mind this download link expires after some time, so if you want to download WP Ultimo after the link expires, you would need to do it by signing into your Freemius account and downloading it from there.

Remember to also have your license key ready, since you will need it to activate WP Ultimo.

Where to find your license key

You can find your License key on the email you received after the purchase and inside your Freemius account. Just click on the Licenses tab and your license will be shown there.

After getting the file, go to your network Dashboard and access the Plugins page where you can manage all the plugins you have.

There, click Add New and then, Upload Plugin.

Choose the .zip file of WP Ultimo and click Install Now*.*

You should receive a confirmation message. Right below this message click to Network Activate your plugin, since WP Ultimo is a multisite plugin and needs to be activated network-wide.
