I remember that once upon a time PayPal (never used Skrill before) supported Nigeria. However, with Ebay being the parent company and the sheer amount of fraud coming from that country on that site, it was removed / banned. Perhaps if things ever improve there, they’ll consider supporting them again. Who knows? It’s gotta suck though for the honest folks that live there.

Is this possible to request refund ourselves?

No, it’s not. Only Envato Customer Support has this power for the moment. They don’t want to lose their cut as easily as some Authors might be inclined to give it away. LOL ;-)

Theme Authors are required to purchase an extended license AND get the plugin author’s permission to include in theme.

When you see the Standard license price mentioned it’s because they’re indicating how much a “buyer” (who hasn’t already purchased a license before) will save by buying the Theme alone.

If you don’t have the proper license and it somehow gets approved (reviewers make mistakes), it’ll likely get spotted, reported and removed the first day (I’ve seen it happen). Worse, your Envato account could get suspended and all earned money / credit is forfeit because the plugin author served a DMCA notice on Envato. You wouldn’t be the first to try.

Visual Composer is the most popular but it’s not the best. If you don’t want to distinguish yourself from everyone else though, just do what everyone is. You’ll blend in and be as easily forgettable as the rest. ;-)

For what reason(s) can’t you simply use the plugin you’ve linked to? What “exactly” doesn’t it do that you looking for. Otherwise, you’re speaking far too generally. Please be more specific / detailed to have any expectation of another response.

Actually, it should be real simple. An extended license purchase is meaningless without written author permission.

If permission was given but you can prove the terms of the sale have been breached, his license is null and void.

In addition to what license terms he might have violated, unless there’s demonstrable proof of permission, he’s in the wrong (not permitted to do what you’ve described).

Make sure Envato is aware of the fact that you were never contacted for permission / never gave it if this is the case. It was the buyer’s responsibility to secure permission / permits before buying so Envato doesn’t even owe him a refund IMO.

LOL! You don’t even have one idea? C’mon be creative. At least provide some choices. That’d actually be a legitimate poll.

Take a look at the item requests section. That’s what it’s for. ;-)

Aside from that, do your own thinking or market research. Sounds like you’re asking for a shortcut or people’s predictions of the next big thing™.

I see. It’s the booking system you’ve bundled in your recent WP Hotel theme, right?

You may have missed this part of the official CodeCanyon licensing FAQ?

You’re NEVER allowed to use a plugin in a theme just because you purchased an extended license. You ALWAYS also require the author’s written permission. This can be a email or other written form. If you already have this, you’re fine. Otherwise, you’ll need to obtain it. If you can’t, you’ll want to contact Envato support to explain the situation and potentially seek a refund so that you can instead work with another author. It’s typically best to contact any author BEFORE purchasing the license to see if they’ll grant you permission.

The fact the author has asked you to remove the plugin from your theme could mean that the author has no intention of ever giving permission for your use. However, the author may never have been informed of your use case / doesn’t remember that you’ve purchased an extended license. Did you inform the author of the account / theme names that would be bundling the plugin? No? Again, merely proving that you purchased an extended license is not sufficient. In either case, you have no choice right now but to remove it until you’ve come to an agreement with the author. Failure to do so immediately could result in having a DMCA notice served on you or worse.

It’s always the buyer’s (whether they’re also developer or not) responsibility rather than Envato’s to ensure proper licensing is purchased.

This is a general forum. You post may never been seen by whom you intend it to be read by. Here’s a link to the profile page of the theme author where you can copy and paste the above message into the provided message email text area on the that page…
