Upgrading from Sensei to Sensei with WooCommerce Paid Courses

In May 2019, the original Sensei plugin was split into 2 new plugins – Sensei LMS (free) and WooCommerce Paid Courses (paid). If you had an active Sensei license at that time, it was automatically converted to a Sensei with WooCommerce Paid Courses license.

If you have Sensei 1.12.3 (or lower) installed, and you sell your courses with WooCommerce, you’ll want to follow this guide to upgrade to Sensei with WooCommerce Paid Courses.

Note that if you are using any Sensei extensions, you will need to update them to version 2.0.0 or higher. Older versions of extensions are not compatible with Sensei with WooCommerce Paid Courses.

On your plugins page, you’ll see the following:

Go to WooCommerce > Extensions > WooCommerce.com Subscriptions.

Make sure you’ve connected your site to your WooCommerce.com account, then click the Update button to refresh your Subscriptions:

Now look in your list of subscriptions, and you’ll find your former Sensei license has been replaced by a WooCommerce Paid Courses license. It should look something like this:

Click the toggle switch to activate the subscription if it’s not already active, then click the Update button:

The update will run, and you should see the following:

Return to your plugins page and you’ll find that Sensei has been successfully updated to Sensei with WooCommerce Paid Courses. That’s it! You can now continue to sell your courses with Sensei.
