Hi, I’m planning to submit my first PSD template soon. I’m just wondering if it is allowed to include PayPal, Visa and Mastercard logos in my template? It’s supposed to be a business website template. If it’s not allowed to be included in the package, can I at least have them on previews? Thanks!

No, don’t use logos in commercially distributed and resold items such as templates, etc. Not even in the item previews. I would recommend creating some placeholder logos that get the idea across for potential buyers.

Just make some kind of generic looking ones quickly that look similar – PayPol – Mattercard – Wisa

When the logos are not allowed Jarel then how come the scripts category is having logs of similar things check it out as i don’t want to point anyone but i can find many and send u the link if needed. I think all reviewers of themeforest should maintain the same rules though using a different category. Coz some may accept it without any hesitation and some may rejects simple things saying its not allowed or so!

I agree and am checking this out with Jeffrey. Either Jeffrey will chime in on the thread or I’ll report back as soon as I hear back from him.

I’d say there shouldn’t be a problem using them because paypal provide badges for you to put on your website similar to the themeforest assets.

Hey guys. This is a tough one, and is, in my opinion, different than using something like the Apple or Microsoft logos. They’re a bit more general. I’m going to do some research on this; but for the time being, I’ll allow it.

It is quite a tough one isn’t it? hahah. Well, I had the same opinion as Simnor, but I was unsure, I don’t want to risk submitting an item and then get rejected because of this. Additionally, if adding visa, mastercard logos on our templates is a no-no, then would that also mean we can’t include facebook or twitter logos on our templates as well? Anyway, thank you so much for your replies guys! I really appreciate it. I hope they come up with a more concrete reply. eheh
