Just a small request here. Once in 2 – 3 days i’m getting an email about e.l. conditions clarification. And everyone’s asking the same question – how can i use your template in multiple applications? Existing terms are good for usual website templates, admin themes are a backend stuff which requires more advanced terms. Like:
- increase number of applications up to 5 – 10
- give more advanced explanations about what, where and how it can be used
- how many domains are allowed
For example some company wants to use an admin template for their own systems. They have 5 own projects and they want to use the same template for all of them and resell some services with this template to its customers . What they need to do in this case – to buy 5 extended licenses? Or to use only one? And nobody gets the answer even after double check the current terms.
Extended licenses are suitable for admin templates mostly, so please provide more details and change something for them.
And the second question is is there any chance to reduce the price for e.l. in general?
Could you please review an extended license conditions for admin themes?
I can back this up. I had a few buyers contacting me, requesting to arrange a custom license, so they can buy an extended license and use it for multiple projects, or wanting to buy a multisite license, so they can use it for up to 10 sites, but the extended license doesn’t fit.
There was a topic on developer licensing some time ago, the staff told us “it is in the pipeline”, but you know…
EDIT : Here is the aforementioned topic http://themeforest.net/forums/thread/developer-licenses/55087
If they buy an extended license the can have unlimited customers (or projects) if the have less than 50 customers/projects they have to buy a regular license for each.
If they expect more than 50 customers/projects they should by an extended license cause it’s 50× an regular one.
I had a customer who would like to use my template to generate other templates based on mine and support told me an extended license is required for this purpose.
Extended Licence – a template for a Web Service such as WPMU , or as part of a Software Package for sale.
This for me means for a project and that is it. Nevertheless, the extended license is not clearly defined ( example: i want to use a active den product in a theme, but i cannot; but i can use a code canyon product in a theme ) and the prices are way too much. I think everybody would prefer selling extended licenses, 1-2, rather than none, because of the huge price.
Yep! In many cases the buyer must buy an extended licence (regarding the current terms) but really nobody buys one due to the huge price.
I think it will be a good idea to reduce the price on the extended licence in the category “Admin Templates” so we sell hopefully sell a few and to make it clearer for the buyer, in which case he must buy an extended licence.
Right, they should buy an extended license. About this number of customers – didn’t know that. I was suggesting exactly the same explanations, but in more advanced mode. Because now neither we nor our buyers don’t actually understand the whole logic of licenses for admin themes.
@Enstyled – aha, same here, everyone’s telling me that current terms don’t fit their requirements and ask for a custom license.
So definitely these terms should be reviewed as for me
Why the “Flag for staff reply” link is here if nothing happens after i click on it? Any official answer?
It seems we will not receive an official answer on this issue? Or just need it time to discuss it?
Hi Kopyov, This is been looked into, we will reply shortly! Carmen
