Provide a universal key, a static URL, or generate a key

If your product has only one activation key or coupon code (coupon codes are considered keys) or if you send customers a static download URL to an unlocked version of your product, enter the key or URL in the box provided and we will include it in your Delivery Instructions.

If you generate a unique activation key using a combination of customer information, product information, and static text, we can generate the key for you and include it in your Delivery Instructions.

We can generate activation keys using the following information (parameters):

Name Placeholder Description (and sample format)
First Name %fname% Your customer’s first name
Last Name %lname% Your customer’s last name
Email %email% Your customer’s e-mail address
SubID %sid% An optional parameter you append to your Campaign URL
Country %country% The standard two-digit code of the country where the customer placed the order (US)
Order ID Number %oid% A 7-letter ID we generate for each transaction (ZJ7HVFH)
Product ID/SKU %pid% Your product’s optional ID/SKU
Traffic Source Id %tid% Your campaign’s Campaign Name (cartpage)
TABLE 1 Supported activation key parameters

To have TrialPay generate a key for a customer, select each variable that makes up the key from the Customer Info and Transaction Info drop-down menus. This will insert variables’ placeholders. You may add static characters before, between, or after any placeholder.

For example, if your activation keys are always a customer’s last name followed by your product’s SKU and the number 1234, you would choose the Last Name and Product ID/SKU variables from the drop-down menus, and append the number 1234. The resulting text would look like this:

%lname%%pid%1234

Please note that in order for us to deliver the URL, you must enter it in the Product Download URL section.
