1. How Do I Specify Zip Package Paths Manually?
If you have Premium plugins that aren’t in the WordPress repository, PluginBot will let you enter in the download link to those plugins and save it in a field for automatic install. The download path is the actual location of the file online. Local file installs are currently not supported.
Ex: http://pluginbot.com/plugin.zip (not real)
In most cases Premium plugins are protected by activation codes or licenses. So you’ll need to re-enter your license or activation code to utilize the plugins, however the download path is usually provided by the plugin vendor.
Another solution is to upload your premium plugins to a secure folder (make sure folder has no-index, no-follow index.html file) on your domain or even an Amazon S3 account. Then use those zip paths to download the files.
