Purchasing additional White Label licenses

A White Label license lets you rebrand one Control panel. In the other words, you can replace MotoCMS brand information with your own company information for only one website's admin panel by using one White Label license.

You can purchase a White Label license in 2 ways:

1) You can purchase one license with your template by adding White Label offer to your purchase on our website www.motocms.com

2) You can purchase multiple licenses in your Accounts page. In order to do so you will need to open "White label" tab and click on "Purchase" button.

Please specify amount of licenses you would like to buy in a popup window that will appear. Then simply use "Buy Now" button to proceed to checkout.

Managing a brand

1) Please create a new brand that will be used with your templates. In order to create a new brand, you need to Log in to your MotoCMS account at our Accounts page.

2) Once you are in your account, you will need to click on the "White label" tab. This action will open a page where you will need to fill in all settings. Here is the list of settings you will need to set up:
