If we buy the template and handover the end-product license gets transferred to the client, how do I assure them that it is a legal copy of the template?

Hi Viky293,

it’s actually quite a good question to ask, because even if you would hand him the license of the template you purchased, you could have still copied the project to your personal hard drive. I guess apart from the license (including the purchase code), you can’t give your customers any assurance that he has a legal version of the template.

But, if you buy the template, and hand it over to your end customer, then you would still need to hand him the item’s/template’s license, which refers to you as the official buyer/licensee of the template, meaning that the purchase code is basically linked to your name. So if you want to hand him over the customized theme, then you should have a legal agreement in which you could declare that by signing it yourself, you agreed to delete all files from the theme from your devices.

That’s it.

Yeah, as stated above a signed legal document would help with assurance, as well as giving them the license certificate.

Theoretically, if the author has a support site setup with purchase code verification they could take the info from the certificate and enter it there to ensure that it was legally purchased.

Honestly for clients site, create a separate account for them and purchase it that way. Then when you’re done with the client hand the account credentials over to them.

It makes life a thousand times easier if they need support for the theme in the future, plus they’ll have all the info needed to prove purchase etc…

a signed legal document ??? Its a lot cheaper to just have them purchase the theme themselves!

A legal document can be a napkin with some terms and your signature on it. It doesn’t have to be expensive. I would say clean A4 paper is probably a better route though :)
