Licence Key Problems

If you have just purchased a licence and have not received your licence, please check your spam / junk folder to ensure it hasn't been caught in filters, such as MessageLabs.

You can also view your licence(s) details and invoice(s) by logging into your account, if you purchased from the 22nd of September 2014 onwards.

If the SEO Spider says your 'licence key is invalid', then please try copying and pasting it in again carefully. The licence keys we provide always work, so please read our FAQ, which covers common mistakes inputting a licence key.
