service managing sale and remote activation ?

Hi all,

I am about to launch a desktop software and am wondering if there is a service that does :
- license de/activation
- cart and pay.
( I try to search but I got alot of entreprise license asset software mngt )

In a perfect, I'll just add a few http calls to my app ( it would check in which mode it is : demo, bought, locked ) and button that open a browser on an buy page.

In fact, still in this perfect world,  the app would be more tolerant, like steam : if the server is out, it would just check the last time it connected and if it is under month, open anyway.


P.S : I am new there

Looks interesting, but I don't know anyone who is using it.
