Asset Store

Accessing the Asset Store

There are three ways you can access the Unity Asset Store:

  • Open the Asset Store window by selecting Window→Asset Store from the main menu within Unity.
  • Use the Shortcut key (Ctrl+9 on Windows / ⌘9 on Mac OS)
  • Browse the web interface: https://www.assetstore.unity3d.com/

You may be prompted to create a free user account or sign-in if it is your first time accessing the Unity Asset Store.

Confirm the invoice number of one purchase

The invoice number is used to verify the sale for publishers. Many publishers of paid asset or plugin ask for the invoice number upon request of support. The invoice number is also used as a license key to activate some asset or plugin.

The invoice number can be found in two place:

  1. After you bought the asset, you will be sent an email whose subject is "Unity Asset Store purchase confirmation...". The invoice number is in the PDF attachment of this email.

After accessing the Asset Store and viewing the asset you'd like to download, simply click the Download button. The button text may also be Buy Now if the asset has an associated cost. Unity Asset example
