There is a service plan configured to allow purchasing two or more Parallels Plesk licenses (resource rate limits are set up to allow having two or more item of the resources). One Plesk license was ordered and provisioned successfully, but purchasing the second license is not possible: in CCP > Account > Buy New License > [subscription] there is no Parallels Plesk Panel license option.


It is possible to purchase only one Parallels Plesk Panel license per subscription. Feature request #PBA-42971 was created to implement multi-license per subscription functionality.
