With Ad Inserter Pro license you also get one year of free updates and support via email. You can install and check free Ad Inserter plugin and if you find it useful and need more features you can simply upgrade to Ad Inserter Pro.
How can I upgrade from free Ad Inserter to Ad Inserter Pro?
Upgrading from free Ad Inserter to Ad Inserter Pro is easy and preserves settings. Simply deactivate and remove free Ad Inserter and then upload and activate Ad Inserter Pro.
We offer a choice of four license types for Ad Inserter Pro. Each license includes free updates for 1 year. A license is required for each website that has the plugin installed.
After the free updates period ends you will still be able to use Ad Inserter Pro normally. Only plugin updates will not be available anymore and you will not be eligible for support via email. You can still keep using the version of the plugin that you have installed. Of course, you can renew or upgrade the license anytime.
Each website (domain or subdomain) that manages and updates plugins needs a license. Of course, this assumes that each WordPress installation is accessible through only one domain name. For example, typical website can be accessed either via example.com or via www.example.com and not via both domain names at the same time – you should redirect one domain name to another also for SEO purposes. In the case some WordPress installation can be accessed through more than one domain it will consume one license for each domain. The same applies also for subdomains.
For licensing purposes, a typical multisite installation counts as one site. Assuming that only the main multisite site which manages the plugins (network administration) will contact license server under one domain and the WordPress installation for the main site is accessible through only one domain, it will take up only one site slot of your license as only the main site (accessible through one domain) manages and updates the plugins. Normally, the plugin is available with settings and widgets to all the sites on the network. Ad Inserter Pro supports additional options to disable Ad Inserter Pro settings page, widgets and post/page exceptions for sites (except for the main one).
You can extend the license period anytime. On the same page where you can download the plugin you can also renew or upgrade the license. If you have lost your download link or license key you can recover it by entering PayPal email address that was used for payment. We offer 20% discount for license extensions and renewals during the license period and 30 days after the license expires. We also offer license upgrades. If you decide to upgrade to a different license type during the license period you get 20% discount on the regular price and the license period extended for one year.

<iframe>ads like AdSense) but is not available in Ad Inserter Pro Personal.
Country is determined from the IP address of the website visitor. All Pro licenses support Webnet77 geolocation database. Business and Corporate licenses support also MaxMind geolocation database (Ad Inserter Pro will download and use GeoLite2 data created by MaxMind). All Ad Inserter Pro licenses support also CloudFlare geolocation.
Default Webnet77 database is lightweight (around 2 MB) but slightly less accurate than MaxMind. If you select MaxMind database and enable automatic updates Ad Inserter Pro will download and use GeoLite2 database (around 60 MB).
If you are using free Ad Inserter you need to deactivate it and remove it first – saved settings will be preserved. The Pro version will automatically import existing settings from the free version.
