    There is this commercial Plugin and Theme Update API manager for WooCommerce that specifically works if the plugin or theme is not hosted on wordpress.org. It is designed to provide updates for self hosted plugins and themes. The plugin is for those who don’t want to write it yourself, and need a lot of features, plus working examples for plugins and themes that are being sold.
