If you have set up a WordPress multisite network and you want to use the Thrive Products that you have purchased on all of your multisites, then using the Thrive Product Manager is the first step you have to take.
Note: Please keep in mind that the following instructions are valid for the sub-domain, as well as the sub-directory type of multisites.
Install Thrive Product Manager on Network Admin
First of all, you will have to install and activate the Thrive Product Manager on the Network Admin dashboard.
Go to your Thrive Member Dashboard and download the Thrive Product Manager plugin. Then, go back to the Network Admin Dashboard, hover your mouse over the “Plugins” section and click on “Add New”:
Click on the “Upload Plugin” button from the upper left part of the page:
Then, choose the Thrive Product Manager that you have previously downloaded and click on “Install Now”:
Once the plugin is installed, you will have to click on the “Network Activate” button, which will activate the Thrive Product Manager on every site that belongs to this network:
Connect Thrive Product Manager to your Thrive Themes account
After the Thrive Product Manager is activated on all of the websites from your network, you will have to connect it to your Thrive Themes account.
From here on out, you will need to access each website that you want to use the Thrive Products on, separately.
In order to do that, in your Network Admin dashboard, look for the “Sites” section in the left sidebar. Hover over it and then, click on “All Sites”:
This will open the page where you can see every site that belongs to your network. Choose the website on which you want to use the Thrive Products first.
Hover your mouse over it and then, click on the “Dashboard” button that appears under it:
This will open the dashboard of the specific websites from the network. In the left sidebar, you will see the “Product Manager” plugin.
Click on it and then, click on the “Log in to my account” button, in order to log in and access the products you have purchased:
If you were logged in to your Thrive Themes account in the same browser, then you will be logged in automatically. If not, then you will have to complete the username and password that you have used when signing up at ThriveThemes.com and then, click on “Log In”.
Install the Thrive Products you want to use
After you are logged in, you will see a list of the Thrive products. You will have the possibility to install and use them on the respective site from the network.
All you have to do is to select the products and then, click on the “Install selected products” button:
Once the installation process is done, the products will be ready-to-be-used on the respective website from your network.

Important things to keep in mind:
In order to use the same (or other) Thrive products on other websites from the same network, you will have to repeat this process on each website separately.
The fact that you have installed “Thrive Architect” for example, on one of the websites, does not mean that you can use it on the other websites from the network.
This means that you will have to connect your Thrive Themes account to the Thrive Product Manager on each website from the network separately and install the products on them separately as well.
Also, since these are separate websites, every such installation of the products equals one license installation/use.
So, for example, if you have purchased 5 Thrive Suite licenses, and you install the products on 5 different websites from a WordPress multisite network, then you have used all the license installations you had.
Naturally, if you want, you can deactivate one of the license installations from one of the websites, and activate it on another one from your network, by following the steps presented in this article.
