Download and Install Scarcity Samurai

In this video, you’ll learn how to download and install Scarcity Samurai onto your Wordpress based website.  

This is your personalized installation page.  You can get to it by clicking the link in the EMail you received after your purchase.

When you click the link under step 1, Scarcity Samurai will begin downloading to your computer.

By default, the Scarcity Samurai zip file will end up in the Downloads folder on most computers.

Please note, you don’t need to unzip the file, Wordpress will accept the file as a Zip.

Now log into your Wordpress dashboard, and click the “Plugins” button on the sidebar.  

Then click the “Add New” link, and you should see a screen which looks like this.

Click the “Upload” link just below the top of the page.  

Next, click the “Choose File” button (1) to bring up a file selection dialog box.

Navigate to your Downloads folder (2), select the Scarcity Samurai package, which will have the name “Scarcity Samurai”, then a version number, then the “.zip” file extension (3), and click “Open”.  

Finally, click “Install Now”.

You should then see a message letting you know that the plugin was installed successfully.

The final step in getting Scarcity Samurai running is to activate it, so I'm going to come over here and click the 'Activate Plugin' link.

Wordpress will let you know that the plugin was activated, and Scarcity Samurai will now appear in the plugin list down here (1), and in the side bar over here (2).

Just click the Scarcity Samurai link...

The last step is registering your plugin.  Start by entering your Email address here -

Then, swich over to your download page to find your registration key.

Select it, and copy it to your clipboard -

Then swtich back to the Scarcity Samurai window, and paste it in place.

Check the box to accept the End User License Agreement, click the Register button -

...and Scarcity Samurai is ready to go!

There will be periodic updates to the software, and you’ll be informed when one is available by a little notification under the Scarcity Samurai button in the sidebar (1), or under the Plugins button of your dashboard (2) - as shown here.  

Just click on Plugins, then click the “Update Now” button and your software will update automatically.  

If the update doesn't show after your first click, it might take another click before the update shows.

Your settings and campaigns will not be affected by updating your plugin.

If you have any problems with this process, please don’t hesitate to contact our support team at

    Not being very computer savy, here is my simple questions:

    Can this Plugin be used in sites that are not Wordpress?

    I was just wondering if this plugin included n the Market Samurai Sofware, or does it need to be purchased separately. If it's not it would be a nice bonus.. HINT! lol

    hey, guys! i have successfully activated the plugin on a couple of websites but on one of my sites, it returns "activation failed" error - nothing else. What might be the reason and how do i fix it? The site does have the needed wp and php versions so it's something else... i cannot activate the plugin.
