I have a similar question – not sure if this needs to be addressed in a new post?
I dont own a credit card so I have asked my boss to purchase a Wordpress eCommerce theme on my behalf and I’ll pay him in cash. I have red on a different thread that “When you purchase the file, it gets attached to the account you buy it with”. So will the theme eventually be tied to his account/name, yet I’d like to be recognised as the owner of that theme/licence.
Is there a way of recognising me as the owner?
Not unless you purchase it from YOUR account. You could buy it using your account and make the payment from your boss’s PayPal I suppose
Thanks for the reply charlie
If I’d get the purchase code however, even if he pays for the theme using his account, wouldn’t it basically be linked to my account if I am the only one using it e.g. on the Authors support site. One of the main reasons for my concern is technical support and since most technical support is only offered with a valid purchase code, would’nt I just need the code?
Technically it would appear like you if you are the one using the code BUT if would be much better and safer to have it bought through your account even if someone else signs into PayPal to pay for it.
If it is not in your account (forget support for now) what happens if there is an update and your boss is not available to sign into their account and download newer versions?
I see, thats a good point you raise there. Ill have a chat with him in the morning and hopefully we can do it like you described. I really appreciate the feedback charlie, thank you again.
