I have 3 plugins on the marketplace and I will merge them into one all-purpose framework which will be capable of doing the same job as each of the 3 initial plugins.
I’m doing this for better support, less work to update all plugins with the same code and better consistency.
How would I go about this and provide support for the previous buyers? They will, most likely, have to purchase the new plugin and migrate their old content to the new one.
I have decided that the new plugin, which has the same name, will replace one of the existing 3 plugins, so I’ll have 2 more plugins to deprecate and shut down support.
Is it possible to transfer all buyers from the 2 remaining plugins to the 3rd one?
I don’t have any proof, I just did the customization in order for the plugin to be different from the marketplace one and to protect myself.
I’ve been doing client work for 12 years and I know some of them might try to take advantage from various circumstances.
A while ago, I have customized a couple of plugins from my portfolio and sold them to a client via PayPal. This client is a CodeCanyon user and now he wants me to provide updates to those plugins.
As the purchase was not from another marketplace or not from my site, but non-public via email, he has no grounds in what he tries to accomplish. He wants to contact Envato and claim I broke the rules by selling him the customized plugins.
What do you think? Should I report him to Envato?

@ShaneFreer, I must have misinterpreted the original post. I remember reading something like this but I cannot track it down now.
I’m a bit confused, so can I enter an existing script I’ve made for this just by putting the tag ‘Marketting’ in? Or do I reupload it all?
I’m not sure how much updated scripts weigh, but the original post said you only need to update your script and add the “marketing” tag. That is all. No need to reupload it, unless you added something new.
