FAQ’S

How do I get a license key for the plugin?

You must register your installation of the plugin, regardless of whether you are taking advantage of the trial period or purchased a license outright. At the conclusion of the registration process an email will be sent to you that will include the license key. You can also login to eniture.com using the username and password you created during the registration process and retrieve the license key from the My Licenses tab.

How do I change my plugin license from the trial version to one of the paid subscriptions?

Login to eniture.com and navigate to the My Licenses tab. There you will be able to manage the licensing of all of your Eniture Technology plugins. Refer to the Documentation tab on this page for more thorough instructions.

How do I install the plugin on another website?

The plugin has a single site license. To use it on another website you will need to purchase an additional license. If you want to change the website with which the plugin is registered, login to eniture.com and navigate to the My Licenses tab. There you will be able to change the domain name that is associated with the license key.

Do I have to purchase a second license for my staging or development site?

No. Each license allows you to identify one domain for your production environment and one domain for your staging or development environment. The rate estimates returned in the staging environment will have the word “Sandbox” appended to them.

Why isn’t the plugin working on my other website?

If you can successfully test the plugin from the Connection page (WooCommerce > Settings > Unishippers > Connections) then you have one or more of the following licensing issues: 1) You are using the license key on more than one domain. The licenses are for single sites. You will need to purchase an additional license. 2) Your trial period has expired. 3) Your current license has expired and we have been unable to process your form of payment to renew it. Login to eniture.com and go to the My Licenses tab to resolve any of these issues.

Why are the quotes I receive on my website different than what I’m paying for postage?

The quoted rates will match the amount you pay for postage provided the same shipping parameters are used. If they differ, examine the product weight and dimensions you have entered into your website. Consider making changes as needed. Remember that the weight of packaging materials is included in the weight of the shipment and that your use of box size may also have an impact on the shipment’s billable weight.

Why do I sometimes get a message that a shipping rate estimate couldn’t be provided?

There are several possibilities:

FedEx has restrictions on a shipment’s maximum weight, length and girth which your shipment may have exceeded.

There wasn’t enough information about the weight or dimensions for the products in the shopping cart to retrieve a shipping rate estimate.

The city entered for the shipping address may not be valid for the postal code entered. A valid City+State+Postal Code combination is required to retrieve a rate estimate. Contact us by phone (404-369-0680) or email (support@eniture.com) to inquire about solutions to this problem.

The Trinet web service isn’t operational.

Your subscription to the application has expired because payment could not be processed.

There is an issue with the Eniture Technology servers.

There is an issue with your server(s).
