Hello,

We noticed that we can purchase our own items which was not available before? Is it a new feature or a bug? :)

But what if we want to give away free items from our personal pages? Then we have to purchase a license for every item we want to give away…

So it would make sense to purchase your own items :)

No. Just give them the file (Archive)?

Envato doesn’t deal with giving away free files. (Apart from ‘free file of the month’)

I was wondering about that, are we allowed to giveaway our themes (few copies, not give it away).

You need a license if you want to give a copy away for free. This topic was discussed several times and I think you have to contact the support if you’re planning to do it.
