Authorization Software in 2021?

I was wondering what people are using in 2021 for their authorization and licensing of their software? Been having no luck with current offerings and just wanted some feedback.

wrote my own auth server that interacts with Gumroad’s license key server. Gumroad is who I sell products through, and they generate license keys upon purchase. Not trivial to implement, but effective!

Hmm I think the best is to roll your own, figuring out how to use someone else’s is almost as hard as just doing it yourself

That’s exactly what I was thinking, but why even use serial? Why not just use the login credentials as authorization without any serial.

You either keep track of their login credentials or keep track of their license key. I preferred a third party generate the license keys so I have no means of knowing how that was done and I didn’t want to have to deal with oauth to deal with their login credentials.
