Pricing & Purchase
WP Migrate DB Pro is a developer tool, more like PhpStorm than most other WordPress plugins. As such, it makes sense for it to be licensed similarly, per developer rather than per site.
Organization licenses are priced by seat. This is ideal for companies with a team of developers, and want each of them to have their own license key. A seat can be assigned to a user, with their name, email address, and their own license key.
A volume discount is applied to every seat for orders of 1 or more seats. Learn more about managing seats.

Frequently Asked Questions
Does it handle serialized data?

What are the requirements to run WP Migrate DB Pro?
- Latest version of WordPress or the one previous
- PHP 5.4+
- MySQL 5.0+
- Apache 2+ or Nginx 1.4+ It will likely work with other web servers that support PHP & MySQL, but we do not officially support those.
- Firefox and Webkit-based browsers like Chrome or Safari. Internet Explorer is not supported.
What counts as an "active site"?
When you use WP Migrate DB Pro on a production site, it is counted as an active site. After 30 days of not using WP Migrate DB Pro on that site, it will no longer count as an active site. Multisite production sites count as one activation. Development and staging sites are ignored and do not count toward the site limit. For example, using your license on awesomesite.com will count as one active site, but using it on dev.awesomesite.com, awesomesite.dev, staging.awesomesite.com, etc will not count toward your limit.
Can I deactivate sites?
Customers told us that logging into My Account to deactivate a bunch of sites every couple of months was a pain. We've implemented the active sites system to eliminate this. By only counting sites you've used in the last 30 days, there's no need to deactivate sites regularly. In the unlikely event that we incorrectly flag one of your dev/staging sites as a production site that counts toward your limit, simply let us know and we'll correct that for you.
What happens if I hit my "active sites" limit?
If, in the last 30 days, you've used WP Migrate DB Pro on as many sites as your license allows and you need to use it on a new site immediately, you can simply upgrade your license instantly from My Account.
Can I use the Personal license on multisite?
Yep, go ahead, but you'll need to upgrade to submit a support request concerning multisite.
Can I share a license among several people?
No, it is against our licensing terms for individuals to use the same license key, whether they are in the same organization or not. Each license key is intended for use by an individual and is linked to their email address. Organizations can purchase a license with multiple seats, allowing each member of their team to have their own license key under a single organization license.
Do you have bulk pricing discounts?
Definitely. If you need a license for a team of 7 or more developers, please send an email to email@example.com> and we'll get you started.
Does it migrate themes, plugins, and core files?
To migrate your theme and plugin files with WP Migrate DB Pro, you must have the Theme & Plugin Files addon installed. WordPress media files are also not migrated natively unless you have the Media Files addon installed. WP Migrate DB Pro does not migrate your core WordPress files.
What types of multisite migrations are supported?
We test and currently support migration from one multisite install to another multisite install at the Network Admin level. With the Multisite Tools addon, you can also migrate subsites of a multisite install to a single-site install.
Will it work on a WordPress.com site?
No, WordPress.com does not enable you to install any plugins including ours.
Do you offer a discount for teachers?
If you are a teacher at a K-12 school or a University and you agree to use your license only for classroom work, then you qualify for a complimentary license for 1 year. Simply use your school email address to email us a link to a page on your institution's web site containing your name, the number of students you would like the license to cover. In a year when your license is about to expire, you can reconfirm your teacher status to extend your license for another year. If you purchased the plugin more than 60 days ago, we can’t apply this discount retroactively.
Do you offer a discount to educational institutions for departments, classrooms, labs, or the entire school?
Yes, we offer a 20% discount to educational institutions. Licenses are issued per student. For more information, email us at firstname.lastname@example.org
Do you offer a discount for non-profits?
Yes, we offer a 20% discount to non-profit organizations that have tax exempt status. You need to provide proof of your organization's tax-exempt status with current tax documents from its country of residence. For more information, email us at email@example.com
Will I still be able to migrate sites after my license expires?
Yep. You can use export, push, and pull after your license expires. For push and pull, you will need to enter your expired license key to unlock those features. Export doesn't require a license key at all.
What methods of payment do you accept?
We accept Visa, MasterCard, American Express, JCB, and PayPal. We will also process checks, ACH, and wire transfers for purchase orders of $1,000 and over. Requests for a quote and any other manual processing are subject to a $1,000 minimum order as well.
Will you automatically charge my credit card or PayPal account after 1 year?
Yes, your purchase is a subscription. You can cancel your subscription and add/remove payment methods at any time from My Account. We'll send you an email 14 days before we charge your account as a reminder.
Do you have a support forum?
Nope. We currently offer support via email only.
Does it migrate media files?
Yep, we have an addon for that. It is included with every license Developer and higher.
Can it merge the changes of two databases?
Not yet. WP Migrate DB Pro currently does not have the capacity to merge two databases together. We simply drop the old tables and import the new ones.
Why wouldn't I just use WordPress' built-in XML export/import?
WP Migrate DB Pro will migrate your entire WordPress database, WordPress' built-in tools will not. For more details, please see our blog post WordPress XML Export/Import vs. WP Migrate DB Pro
Will it work to migrate Drupal, Joomla, or Expression Engine sites?
No, WP Migrate DB Pro only works with WordPress.
Will you migrate my site for me?
Sorry, but we do not offer site migration services at the moment.
Do you offer a discount for students?
If you are a student at a K-12 school or a University and you agree to use your license only for classroom work, then you qualify for a complimentary license for 1 year. To receive your discount, use your school email address to send us a copy of a document issued by your school with your name, institution name, and current date. Accepted documents include:
- School ID card
- Report card
- Tuition bill or statement
In a year when your license is about to expire, you can reconfirm your student status to extend your license for another year. If you purchased the plugin more than 60 days ago, we can’t apply this discount retroactively.
Is the plugin compliant with GDPR?
Yep, see our documentation for details.
What are seats?
Organization licenses are priced by seat. This is ideal for companies with a team of developers, and want each of them to have their own license key. A seat can be assigned to a user, with their name, email address, and their own license key. Learn more about managing seats.
WP Migrate DB Pro is a developer tool, more like PhpStorm than most other WordPress plugins. As such, it makes more sense for it to be licensed per person than per site.
Seem a Little Pricey?
Some quick math... let's say you charge $50 per hour. WP Migrate DB Pro only needs to save you 5 hours and a Developer license has paid for itself! And it certainly will, just look what our customers are saying...
