You don’t have to purchase a license key to use Photo Upload, but the free version has certain restrictions, such as not being able to choose the destination album.
Each upload service requires a separate license key. You can buy license keys for 1 or more upload services (e.g. Dropbox and OneDrive).
How many license keys do I need to buy?
The licensing policy matches Adobe’s licensing policy. Each unique license of Lightroom that you use Photo Upload with will require corresponding license keys of Photo Upload.

The full set of capabilities are only available when you buy a license key for a particular upload service.
