To install the plugins:

For the plugins you get with the theme you don’t need buyer license to use them.

Since we have the extended license we give all our clients plugin updates through theme updates. There is only one license per purchase – so only we can use this license to get the updates and then share the update with our clients.

If you have any problem with the plugins or if you need help updating the plugins please open a ticket in our private support system here – http://support.wpestate.org/ and we will help you asap.

Click on the Install Plugins notice:

install plugins

Then select the plugins, select “install” and click “APPLY” button:

install plugins active

If there’s an error during plugins install it means the server doesn’t allow the auto-installer to make this action. In this case, do installation like this:

Download all files and documentation from buyer account:
