I’m not sure if anyone has discussed this or not, but I have a bunch of themes that I no longer use anymore. What if I were able to somehow resell my theme at a discounted price?
Almost like a used item out in the real world. I could put the used theme on the marketplace for a price, when it sells, the license would be transferred to the new owner. The original author and I would each get a cut.
Authors would be earning income again on the same license they already sold. It could attract a different audience too, some people don’t want to get your theme for $50, but if they can snatch it up for $20 when a deal goes on the marketplace, they might be more willing.
I’m sure it’s a lot harder to implement than it seems, but just throwing it out there. Thoughts?
Do you own the license for reselling the themes ? Themes are not the same as the used items in the real world. It is digital goods which can be copied to unlimited versions and every version is a single new product.
No problem, but each file of theme will be encoded like every paid software nowadays
BTW, there even could be a 30-day trial too
Selling Themes like shoes?
That’s just ridiculous.

“A 30 day trial period” – why?
No direct download stores operate like this! You don’t get a trial period on iTunes, on Google play or any other. That’s what the demo is of just like any other site. If its broken in 30 days you can apply for a refund just like the other sites….
There is a trend and reasoning here.
