I once had a guy contact me asking if he could pay in monthly installments of $5 for a theme..

Thanks Guys, your answers refer to contacting other members…. but what about this phrase: or use any information gained from the Marketplaces with the intention to make a private arrangement

I’ve seen people using the Envato API for referrals/affiliation sites and made special arrangements with authors to have their items featured (the link of these featured items still linked to themeforest) but just wondering if this goes in the direction of the the private arrangement ?

thanks again Cheers UOU

It’s referring to gaining the information that a theme costs $45, and then contacting an author to make an arrangement to buy 3 licenses for $100 or something similar.

Just like ebay has the clause about not settling auctions outside of the action auction, it’s basically to stop back alley dealing from happening :)

Just a real example:

A web designer asked me once if, instead of buying an extended license for one of my plugins, he could buy from me a special package with a lower price which would allow him to use the plugin on unlimited websites. A kind of developer license.
