As more and more of you take advantage of our fabulous Upgrades, we’ve been conscious of the increasing need to offer a great way to manage your purchases. What if you could track all of your upgrades, manage them, renew them and *gasp* even cancel them, all in one place?
Well, starting today you’ll see a new page in the Store section of your dashboard: My Upgrades.
On that page you’ll find the list of the upgrades purchased for the site you are managing, followed by a lists of the upgrades you have on your other sites, if any.
Domain registration, mapping, Custom Design, Space upgrade, VideoPress or Premium theme, you will find them all here, along with links allowing you to renew, enable auto renew, update credit card data, or cancel ( and get a refund within the appropriate timeframe ).
As you can see, the status of each upgrade and its expiration date are clearly displayed there, with some handy color-coding:
- One-time purchases (Premium theme in the screenshot above) or upgrades currently set to auto-renew (Domain) are displayed in green
- Upgrades which need to be renewed manually are displayed in orange ( 10GB Space, Custom Design )
- When these upgrades which need to be renewed manually get close to their expiration date, they are displayed in red ( VideoPress )
You’ll also find some handy dandy links to more information about each upgrade, just in case you forget why you bought it! When appropriate, we give you links to the settings page, too.
We’ve got plenty of exciting updates planned, including the ability to visualize, save, and print your own billing reports and purchase receipts – so keep an eye on the page for more!
Never forget a renewal anymore, visit the My Upgrades section of the dashboard.

Good day to you, Paolo
I am grateful that you have created this page for us as it will make my upgrade management much more convenient. As I’m visually challenged but have no difficulty seeing colors, the color coding is particulalry helpful for me. Thank you also for including the “learn more” links too.
I am using the free version of WordPress. It sure would be nice if you would do a few upgrades to it, i.e. put a delete button on the revisions.
Nice idea. I actually wish there was a way to use the premium between blogs. The ability to switch a purchased theme onto a different blog instead, would be great. If I paid for the theme on one blog, but decide I would like to change it to a different my other WordPress.com instead, I could put it on another blog.
Congratulations and very thankful for the convenience it provides us.
Well it is a nice layout but please don’t store anything about credit cards or bank details. WordPress site can be hacked like anyother sites we have heard of in the news lately, and then we are all (75 Million of us) f***ed up.
Yes, Yes, Yes! Thank you.
Thank you, good job
Very useful, thanks.
Great idea! Thanks a lot!
good to know. thxs for the update :)
Nice feature! I like how WordPress is constantly improving…
That’s awesome that you’ll be able to see your upgrades. :)
I just checked it out, it’s awesome.
Is any notification displayed on the dashboard before a manual renewal update expires?
This looks great! Love WordPress, so many great features! Thanks for keeping us updated :-)
Thank you, this is very useful. It would be great too to add a billing module (edit and print bills for the services & upgrades). Cheers
convenient and time-saving
That’s amazing! I love how WordPress is always coming up with new tools, even if I can’t use them.
On a side note, has anyone else noticed that the screenshot has a spelling error? It’s minor, but it says it’s “currenty” using 0% storage space.
I love the colours, though! That’s an awesome way of showing the statuses of the upgrades!
Interesting and exciting too. Thanks.
Thank you very much
I have a doubt. Suppose If I have purchased two themes for a blog. Will I be able to change between them both whenever I want or will the old one disappear as soon as I change to a new premium theme or a free theme. Thank you.
Keeping my mind to that. Nice post anyway.
wow who has this much time to invest… I am so blown away to have no time and I aint doin nothing…
I’m getting seriously tempted by the CSS upgrade. More toys to play with :)
thanks for your solution……..
