Freemius empowers WordPress plugin/theme developers to sell in minutes, helping them create prosperous subscription based businesses.

With Freemius Checkout you can sell your digital WordPress products from anywhere.

This plugin allows anyone selling WordPress plugins or themes to embed a “Buy Now” button anywhere in your site using a simple WordPress shortcode.

  • plugin_id – Your plugin/theme ID on freemius.
  • plan_id – The plan you want to promote using the button.
  • pricing_id – The plan pricing level.
  • public_key – Plugin/theme public key.
  • image – The plugin/theme logo URL. Will be displayed in the popup.
  • button – The text to display on the button. Default is ‘Buy Now’.
  • button_id – The button tag ‘ID’ attribute. Default is ‘purchase’.
  • button_class – The button tag ‘Class’ attribute, to add your own styling.


[freemius_checkout name="Press Elements" plugin_id="761" plan_id="1078" pricing_id="928" public_key="pk_fe2850d57f7d4f206aefaa106b91f" button_id="purchase" button="Buy Now"]

Why is the checkout button not working?

The theme needs to use jQuery to display the checkout popup. If it doesn’t enqueue jQuery, the button won’t open the checkout popup.

How to have all my products in my WordPress Website ?

Only the pro version allow this feature. You’ll find (for the moment) a custom post type with a single template (customizable).
