I am developing a concept whereby I’like want to be able to charge users for access to content on the site of a client, like online-subscriptions to magazine-articles that were formerly only accessible via the clients print magazines. User won’t be able to post their own stuff.
For this I’d like to buy a modern theme: Avada, for example, which only offers a regular license, just like many other awesome themes on this site. Yet those are the ones with most functionality.
I am very puzzled about the use of that particular license. For example, it says in the FAQ that (Quote):
“If the end users need to pay to see the end product, you need an extended license. (Example: A website that requires money before you can access the content)”
OK, so even though many of those corporate themes that get sold so often include compatibility with marketplace plugins, and even have pricing tables all layed out and ready, yet its impossibly to actually use them for business purposes because, sadly, many of those Wordpress themes are only available with regular licences.
What am I missing here? What could theme developers gain from not taking my money? Any suggestions on how to proceed are greatly appreciated.
