@PixelBook .. there is a line which you if uncomment, it’ll work as a test. Check the class file and you’ll see the line which needs to be uncommented for debugging.
He would still need buyer api key to test, that debug line only make sure the update code gets called on each page reload. Only way is to ask a buyer for it or purchase own item from another account.
oh .. ok. i’ve entered api details for a purchase and that’s why it worked for me..

API details for a purchase? What is that? I do not really buy stuff, so i am unfamiliar with what a buyer can do or not do.

It’s his API key.. He creates his key just like you create yours..

Interesting. One question. If i buy one of my themes to test it out, will it work? Or will it work with our own details?

I don’t know to be honest. Maybe bitfade can tell you. I’ve tested with another account..

It won’t work with your own details because you’re not a buyer of your own themes so either purchase from a different account or ask a buyer to create a temporary api key for you.

Keys can now be deleted so it wouldn’t be like giving out envato account details.

Modifications of template files will be overwritten/lost unless you make your modifications by using a child theme, in which case they will remain.
