Looking for a developer with VBA / HTTP API experience to build some VBA code so our excel spreadsheet can communicate with a licensing tool running on our online server (WordPress plugin).
The spreadsheet will have to communicate with a licensing plugin for WordPress called WooCommerce Software License. However, we are open to using a different plugin if you have a different recommendation.
Note that the plugin offers methods and functions that can be called by the spreadsheet (activate, deactivate, status-check, etc.) and it also provides online documentation to facilitate the integration work with our spreadsheet.
Overall objective: create a licensing system for spreadsheets that we distribute online to prevent their misuse and their unauthorized distribution.
Main VBA features to be built in the spreadsheet:
- Request user to enter License Key then check key against online database via API calls to confirm it is valid and not already in use (I.e. a key can be used an unlimited number of times but only on one computer = node-locked)
- Check for user's computer ID and check this is the correct ID associated with that license key
- Ability for user to manage its key based on the features / calls offered by the plugin (such as deactivating a key so it can be associated with another Computer ID for instance)
The code must be compatible with both MacOS and Windows and with previous versions of excel (to a certain extent).
The code must not require the user to install / add any external libraries or add-ins (i.e. the code must work in a standalone spreadsheet downloaded by the user on our website).
We will share a more detailed (but straight forward) process flow to the developer once confirmed. In addition, we hope to capitalize on the developer's experience to receive guidance and recommendations on how to optimize / enhance this process if possible.
So if you have experience in this type of work and have performed similar assignments before, please feel free to reach out! We're more than happy to discuss further!
