The subscription service is a great way to support current and future development of the product while giving you the latest features for a fixed annual cost. The Premier Subscription also includes a Network Multisite license, enabling the Store Locator Plus add-ons to work across your multi-sites.

The Premier Plugin
The Premier Plugin, an exclusive add-on pack for Premier Members, brings an entire new set of features to Store Locator Plus that are not available anywhere else. Like any other plugin, once you download it and install it, you own it. These added features will NOT go away if your subscription is cancelled but you will not be able to update newer versions if you do not have an active subscription and if changes are made to the Premier product you may not have access to any “premier only” features and you will not be able to update the premier plug-in to work with the latest versions of Store Locator Plus. Keep in mind, the Sign up fee is non-refundable.

PLUS: All Store Locator Plus Premium Add Ons
Get all the Store Locator Plus goodness for no additional fee.
All of the current and future Store Locator Plus premium add-on packages are included in the subscription. As soon as your account is activated you will have access to all of the current premium add-on packs including Power, Experience, and all Third Party Add Ons.
When a new add-on pack is released you will be granted access to the new add-on pack as soon as it is available to the general public for no additional fee.
You also get the Janitor add-on pack as well as the Buy Here For WooCommerce plugin and legacy plugins with your subscription purchase. Legacy Plugins are available for download via the members-only downloads page.
You also get access to auxiliary products and plugins that are not directly related to Store Locator Plus including several test projects that may become future product lines.
Premier Support Forum
Premier Subscribers will have their questions answered quickly.
All active Premier Subscription accounts will be granted access to the Premier Support Forum. The Premier Support Forum is monitored and responded to during normal business hours with a target response time of less than one business day. It is second only to paid one-day email or login support requests for support priority.
Live Chat Access
Live chat is available any time our developers are online.
Request access to the CharlestonSW Slack channels and reach the developers on live chat any time they are online in “code mode”. Use the Contact Form to request an invite to the Slack channels. The Slack channel is not intended to usurp the Premier forums. The developers might be in the middle of coding and not available to answer general questions so the Premier forum is still the best way to obtain tier one support.
Priority Feature Consideration
When you purchase a Premier Subscription your feature requests are more likely to appear in a future product release.
Premier Support members will be given priority over the standard wish list features that have been requested by the Store Locator Plus community. When the development schedule allows time for user-requested features to be developed, those features requested by active Premier Subscription members will be put on the top of the list for upcoming enhancements to existing products or development of new add-on packs. Premier is required for ALL CUSTOMIZATION Projects.
Get the next product release before it goes into final production.
Premier Members have access to a special downloads page that has all of the latest production and pre-release productions available for download from the site. Get the next iteration of your favorite plugin or add-on pack before it is released to the general public. This allows you to test the upcoming release on YOUR server in YOUR environment before the product is finalized. Perfect for testing upcoming releases on your test or staging site.
Note: Installing pre-release software on a production server is NOT recommended.
Frequently Asked Questions
By purchasing a Premier Subscription you are contributing to the longevity of the Store Locator Plus project. Subscription purchases provide the funding necessary to focus on long term stability and feature improvements in the existing products. It is through the ongoing contributions of subscriptions that research and development can continue on the features that matter most to the businesses that rely on the product every day.
When you purchase a Premier Subscription in place of a one-time add-on pack purchase, it is viewed as a vote for continued improvement of the existing products and base plugin.
Are Subscriptions Required To Use The Product?
Not for single site users. But it is required for SLP add-ons to work on those who run Multisite WordPress sites.
The Premier Subscription is not required to activate single site add-on packs or to keep them active on your site. All products, those included with the Premier Subscription as well as one-time-purchase add-ons, are buy-once and own-forever products. They do not “phone home” to a license server unless you have network multi-sites. The single add-on packs work with the base SLP plug-in version releases at the time and of the same version number as when you bought it.
When your Premier subscription expires the products will not suddenly stop working, but new features with new version updates will not be available.
An active Premier Subscription provides access to all current and future add-on packs, the Premier Support Forum, and insider information articles that keep you informed of current and future developments for the Store Locator Plus product line. The subscription is a great way to provide ongoing support for the Store Locator Plus project.
What Happens If My Subscription Expires?
Access to your downloads and the Premier Support Forum will go away. Any files you have downloaded or have active on your WordPress site will still function as normal, however you may not have access to future updates to your add-on packs. Re-activating your subscription will re-enable downloads and premier forum access.
Are Add On Pack Purchases Going Away?
No. Users that do not wish to purchase a Premier Subscription can still purchase add-on packs as they have done in the past. Any add-on pack they purchase will be available for download and will be updated on an as-needed basis.
