are these for valid item-purchase-code verified installations? maybe there is a set of item purchase codes that make up the majority of these installations? could be someone sharing their item purchase code along with the package. we’ve found a few leaked codes when installation numbers spike and we disable new installations/updates for those particular codes.
We sold 2,010 copies of this plugin, but as we have “update notification” in the plugin we know how many times it has been installed. We don’t restrict the usage of the plugin trough the license key. I believe that if you do this then someone will just “crack it” and distribute it without.
Better provide extra content free stuff – if you enter the license key. However I think that each plugin would get installed less times if we could offer a developer license or discount on multiple purchases.
As a consumer, I’d much rather pay you guys for a volume/developer license so that I could use a plugin on my clients’ sites without feeling like I’m ripping you off for your hard work. It’s sad that I’m not able to do this.
This is pretty sad! Shame on Envato for not looking out for their customers and their content contributors! From all that I have read and looked into they have not even provided a decent reason or explanation (Other than it not being easy – which is Bull). They are driving customers away to other competitors and the developers and groups here that have exclusive contracts are left to suffer for lost revenue and business. To all the developers who support multi-use licenses, my hat goes off to you! Best wishes, and I hope a good solution is found either on Envato or elsewhere…
