Suggestion Require Valid Domain/Domain Verification

    On my recent theft, the thief used an unregistered domain for activation.

    It would be prudent to check that the domain being used for activation is valid, and even better offer some form of validation to ensure the licensee owns the domain.

    Even just checking to see if XenForo is installed would be better than nothing.

    I sort of see this outside of the scope of this add-on, currently.

    I had considered adding XF license verification to it, but ultimately this add-on isn't only used by XF vendors (though I appreciate it is used by a lot of them).

    I'll keep the suggestion open, but with the above in mind, you could sort of do this yourself already. You could verify your registered users have a valid XF license using the license validation API. Then only provide users permission to purchase products once they are in your XF licensed users group. A few template edits around the "Add to Cart" buttons (which would be greyed out without permission) and it should end up being pretty clear what has to happen. This should give you that additional level of protection.
