Overview

Serial Codes

Serial Numbers, Product Codes, PINs, Activation Keys, Enrollment Keys, Usernames, Passwords, Game License Keys and more—together with professionally presented Instructions, Warranties, Rules, or whatever customized text is required—easily managed and automatically delivered to your customers from your Magento store.

What are Serial Codes?
There are many business models that require the sale of products with unique Serial Numbers, Product Keys, PINs, Activation Codes, Enrollment Keys, Usernames, Passwords, Contest Codes, ID Numbers, etc.—the list goes on and on. In an effort to assist with discussion and avoid confusion, we have adopted the term "Serial Code" as shorthand for any piece of information that must be uniquely issued for each individual product sold. This term is used throughout our documentation, and is also used by our extension within the Magento Admin Panel. It contains two parts—the type of Serial Code (e.g., Serial Number) and the actual value of the Serial Code (e.g., 12345A67890).

Features

• Easily manage and automatically deliver Serial Codes for any standard Magento product type—Simple, Grouped, Virtual, Downloadable, Bundled, or Configurable. Fully compatible with Magento Enterprise Edition.
• Choose to automatically issue Serial Codes based on customer group, checkout success, or when an order is invoiced and paid. Supports the option to create multiple invoices per order.
• Simple interface for installing or updating Serial Codes in bulk, with full editing capability including mass updates.
• Allow inventory stock quantities to be continuously updated based on remaining available Serial Codes.
• Automatically assign Serial Codes to deferred payment orders as "Pending" without actually issuing them to the customer until the order is invoiced. Allows for more effective tracking and inventory control. Pending codes are automatically returned to "Available" status if the order is cancelled.
• Send customizable notifications to administrators and/or others when remaining available Serial Codes are getting low.
• Add Serial Codes to existing products in your catalog. No need to reenter products to use this extension.
• Issue Serial Codes by individual product and store view, have several products and store views issue from the same Serial Codes pool—or both. Allows for translation of Serial Code types and customer messages or notifications into multiple languages.
• Track issued Serial Codes by customer order.
• Issue Serial Codes to ordered items and/or deliver them to customers by email directly from the Admin Panel.
• Add, delete, or edit Serial Codes on existing orders.
• The ability to issue Serial Codes for Bundled products to the parent product, to any or all of its child products, or to both at the same time.
• Issue Serial Codes for Configurable products from either the parent product or from its child products. The Serial Codes will always be assigned to the parent product.
• Issue Serial Codes based on Simple product Custom Options. Using Simple product Custom Options in Magento disables tracking of inventory stock quantities.
• Automatically withhold issuing of Serial Codes for standard Magento deferred payment methods ('Check or Money Order,' 'Cash On Delivery,' 'Bank Transfer') with the ability to notify customers that Serial Codes will be issued upon receipt of payment. Additional deferred payment methods from specific payment modules are also supported.
• Show Serial Codes issued to registered customers on orders in the front end—or not. This feature can be turned on or off for individual products and store views so that some products may show their Serial Codes and others may not.
• Notify customers by email at checkout of issued Serial Codes based on product and store view—or not. This feature can also be turned on or off for individual products and store views.
• Customizable Serial Codes email notification templates that can be assigned to individual products and store views containing Instructions, Warranties, Terms, Rules, or whatever customizable text is required for that product. Allows for translation into multiple languages.
• Send notification emails individually by product purchased, group several products within a single email, or both. Or send each individual Serial Code in its own email.
• Notify customers on checkout success page when Serial Codes notification email(s) have been sent.
• Assign (by product and store view) an email type (Warranty, Instructions, etc.) that will appear within the success page notification and can also appear within the actual email itself. Allows for translation into multiple languages.
• Limit access to individual Serial Codes maintenance activities in the Admin Panel to specific users and roles.
• Magento translation tools enabled for translating this extension into other languages besides US English.

Limitations

While this extension will issue multiple Serial Codes for each product ordered based on quantity, it currently has the ability to issue only one Serial Code type per product and store view (translatable into multiple languages). If more than one Serial Code type is needed for a product, the work-around is to merge the codes and separate them with delimiters (we like using the 'pipe' symbol for this, but any symbol can be used). For example, your store sells online subscriptions that require a Username and a Password for the customer to gain access to the resource. You could use the following:
    Serial Code Type: Username | Password
    Serial Code: member0003 | 4321!z9876#
This will appear to the customer as:
    Username | Password: member0003 | 4321!z9876#
Note that spaces are allowed since they may help with legibility.

About the Developer

This extension was developed by and is supported by ModifyMage

Serial Codes 5 5 16 16
Great product - Great support Hi, I'm a merchant and had the opportunity to try this magento extension. I'm very satisfied at all stages of this purchase. Special thanks to David who supported us in making all of the features work smoothly. We suggest this extension to any merchant who can automate serial codes delivery. Wish great success to Modifymage. Michael July 16, 2014
Fantastic Product, Even better support/Service! I can't say enough good things about this developer. They were always timely in responding to my needs and answering any questions. I had a tricky implementation of this extension that required a module to be made that extended the Serial Code extension so that it would generate our custom product serial codes. I was expecting great pain. But with David's help, I was always on the ground running and implementation went way better than expected. We now have our store generating serials and attaching them to orders/emails! Excellent Product. Great support! June 4, 2014
Excellent extension worth every penny! 10 stars to this extension and more than 10 to David. Wanted to express gratitude for this incredible extension and thank David for the amazing work he has done as well as superb service and communication at all times. This extension works flawlessly and fits our needs perfectly! May 10, 2014
Excellent extension and support Does exactly what it says and post sales support is great. One of the better things of the extension is the documentation it comes with. If you read the documentation of the extension, everything is explained extremely well. We had just one doubt and it was solved very quickly by the support team. April 17, 2014
Great Great Great ! Great extension i am full satisfy. Thanks again !. February 17, 2014
AMAZING this extension is amazing, I use it to sell cellphone, internet vouchers and it works perfectly, it would be more perfect if there was an option to encrypt and decrypt the seria codes when the codes are issued. But for now I am very happy. good support. it's not a fake a review, it works. easy to install, easy to manage. February 6, 2014
Amazing extention Great extension and really fast support! If you look for THE serial-, key- or code-manager, you reach the right page! We recommend it! January 9, 2014
My most important extension I can't properly deliver ESD software without this extension, nuf said? January 8, 2014
Excellent software and support I rarely write reviews, but this software is awesome. We can use it to control products that go on sale. You can issue a limited number of serial numbers, and when the serial numbers end, that is it, the product go "out of stock". Someone might ask, why not use the stock control in Magento? That is ease, because we sell products that have serial numbers, and and want and need to keep track of whom bought what. The developer gave and awesome support, and the last update improved and added nice features. Recommended. December 18, 2013
Works! Funciona e tem ótimo suporte! Ao configurar os seriais e o item apontando para as configuraçoes a extensão atribui o valor de estoque do item igual a quantidade de seriais adicionados e faz a entrega de tudo perfeitamente por email quando o pedido é finalizado e pago com sucesso. When configuring serial and item pointing to configurations the extension assigns the value of the inventory item equal to the amount of serial added and takes delivery of everything perfectly via email when the order is finalized and paid successfully. Eu recomendo! I recommend! A LOT! August 26, 2013

But! Is there a way to display the PINS after the purchase is completed as our customers will try to purchase WiFi access and until they get it, they want have access to their email to view the pin!

Also instructing them to click on the order to view their pin sometimes is confusing for them!

You think you can do it?

Thank you for contacting us. It is possible to modify the order success page to display the PINs, but once the customer leaves that page, it's gone forever. Please PM or email us at support@modifymage.com to discuss this in greater detail.

Answer: 
Yes. You can install serial codes in bulk by using copy and paste (one serial code per line). This works well from spreadsheets, emails, text files, or HTML documents. The extension can easily handle thousands of codes for each product, but it may take a minute or so for the extension to install them since a record in the database is created for each serial code. The numbers are associated to a specific product (or to multiple products).

The codes are then issued to the order when the product is purchased based on quantity. If a quantity of five of an item is purchased, then five serial codes will be issued. The status of issued codes is marked as "Used" and the order number is attached as a note to that code. There are multiple features available that allow for tracking of issued and available serial codes.

We have added a "Pending" status to serial codes in addition to the "Available" and "Used" statuses in previous versions. This allow us to assign serial codes to an order without actually issuing them to the customer. It results in better tracking and inventory control. Cancelling an order that contains "Pending" codes returns those codes to the "Available" status so they may be issued to future orders.

Please let us know if you have any additional questions or concerns.

Answer: 
The answer is yes (though we're not sure why you'd want to), but the ability to do so can be limited to specific administrators. Magento Access Control Lists for users and roles is enabled within the Serial Codes extension. Access control for our extension has been separated into four resources which can be enabled or disabled individually for each admin user:

Serial Code Order Items - Disables the ability to view, add, edit or delete Serial Codes on existing orders.

Serial Code Order Edit - Disables the ability to add, edit, or delete Serial Codes on existing orders while still allowing them to be viewed.

Manage Serial Codes - Disables the ability to view, install, or edit lists of Serial Codes.

Serial Code Product Attributes - Disables the ability to view, set, or change the product attributes associated with this extension (those listed under the Serial Codes tab).

Answer: 
Not by default. Serial codes are delivered to the customer using their own separate custom email, or through the customer account for logged in customers.

However, it is possible to modify your theme template files to include them anywhere you like. We are happy to assist with information on how to make these modifications if necessary.

Hello:
I want to know if your extension allows customers to redeem a downladable product with a specific serial number. Customers will find that number on phisical cards that they can buy in a physical store (or I can give as a present). All of this without going through checkout.

I appreciate your answer!

Answer: 
Thank you for contacting us. Our extension is designed to be a serial codes delivery, management, and tracking system. Our extension is not involved in any way with the actual creation, verification, validation, activation, or use of the serial codes. These are all issues that, while they may be integrated with our extension, must be handled by your particular application. In your case, it sounds like you would need an application that allows for entering a key to enable a download that has not been purchased through Magento. This is not a part of the extension.

Where our extension would be useful is if you decided to issue serial codes directly through Magento, or if you wished to track available, assigned, and issued serial codes within Magento by customer, product, and order.

So, unfortunately, the answer is no, this functionality is not available through our Serial Codes extension.

Hi, is it possible to include a barcode version of the serial codes in the email that goes to customers?

i.e. can the serial be converted to a barcode in the email template?

Answer: 
Yes. In fact, we have just added a new event to the extension which should make it easier to do so by allowing the serial codes delivery email to be modified just prior to being sent to the customer.

The barcode would have to be generated from the serial code within the observer for this event. One method for doing so would be to use Magento's built-in barcode generation tool from the Zend framework, "Zend_Barcode." Once generated, there are several methods by which the barcodes could be added to the email.

The new event looks like this:

-----------------------------
Mage::dispatchEvent('sc_dispatch_customer_email_before', array(
'template' => $emailTemplate,
'source' => $source,
'dispatch_options' => $dispatchoptions));
-----------------------------

This event will be available in all version of the Serial Codes extension after version 1.4.4, but if it is needed now, just contact us and we'll email a copy of the this updated feature with instructions and example code. You can find out more about how this extension implements Magento's Observer Events here:
