The best way to upgrade to LifterLMS 3.0 from a previous version is to follow the instructions in the official LifterLMS 3.0 upgrade guide.
If you would like a web developer to assist with your upgrade, we recommend these development resources.

I’m new to LifterLMS, where do I start?

‹_Local_—_WordPressIf you’re new to LifterLMS, and ready to give LifterLMS 3.0 a test drive for the first time, go to the LifterLMS homepage and click on the “Download Now” button. You’ll get your free copy of the LifterLMS software, and you will receive an email with everything you need to know to get going.
There is also a quick setup wizard inside the plugin that walks you through the initial set up of everything when you first install LifterLMS on your website.

I understand there were changes in the pricing model in LifterLMS 3.0. Can you explain that clearly?

The best way to understand LifterLMS pricing is to review the LifterLMS pricing table.
From a pricing perspective, three things happened with the release of LifterLMS 3.0:

  1. The free LifterLMS became more powerful.
  2. A few features became more expensive (the optional PayPal and WooCommerce integrations).
  3. A new product bundle called the Universe Bundle has been introduced, which makes leveraging all the third party integration add-ons and design tools that LifterLMS offers now and in the future much cheaper.

LifterLMS is a free plugin that allows you to create, sell, and protect engaging online courses. You can download it for free at
With LifterLMS 3.0, two integrations were moved out to premium add-ons and were given more advanced functionality

Universe-Bundle-2With the release of LifterLMS 3.0, the Universe Bundle rolled out. This allows users to save big by offering all the third party integrations and design tools that LifterLMS makes as one package at big savings from the products’ combined retail value.
People with existing active licenses can upgrade to the Universe Bundle and get their active licenses prorated. See the next section about that.
We also launched a software scholarship program. If you need financial support because of geography based currency issues or exceptional life circumstances, click here to explain your situation and apply for a partial or full software scholarship.

I am an existing customer, can i upgrade to the Universe Bundle from my existing purchases?

We will prorate the status of your existing active license/s.
Simply send an email through the contact form from the email address associated with your account on Please put “Universe Bundle Upgrade” in the subject and the body of the email.

I need support. Where can I get help?

Lots of places.
Be sure to work through the entire LifterLMS demo course.
The LifterLMS documentation is a great place to go next.
Here is how to get free and premium support from the LifterLMS team.
