I’m planning to buy site template extended licence for coding it to wordpress version, i have spoken with a author about it, and he has given me his permission and promised me that he haven’t sold anyone extended licence yet, how can i make sure that he didn’t do that, can envanto support provide me such information for recheck.

Thanks for your time, hope to find an answer asap.

As far as I know, the extended license is not related with the permission to code the template for wordpress and sell it on themeforest. You only need his permission to code his template.

Seems you haven’t understood me exactly, I just have informed author, that i have potential interest, to buy extended licence of one his items and code it to WP version for TF market, an author was agreed because he is not going to code it himself, before purchase this item i just want make sure that we don’t have already wp version on TF, because if we have it, item will never be approved for sale, i just want to know is envato support able to provide me such information (author’s item ever had (extended licence) sale before)

If he did sell any Extended License, the one who bought it still doesn’t have permissions to code it on ThemeForest. To code it for sale you need to have the author’s written permission and it has nothing to do with license. You can even offer to pay him a certain amount through PayPal, because all you need is his written agreement.

Now, you have a fear..:) You’re thinking that the author may rip you off, and the theme is already for sale or he is already working with someone else on coding it, or etc.. I guess you just have to trust the guy.

Ruben, Thanks for clarifying this situation, does evanto have any information about such process, how author’s written permission should look, what exact details should be registered in this permission.

Thank again for your time

We usually call that trust “Written agreement”. :P But a genuine and well-deserved trust is always better, of course.

Support will not provide such information. Why don’t you just search the theme in the WP category? :P

How did you talk to this guy? Via email? If so then you don’t need a contract as you have proof if things go sour. If you talked to him in person or on the phone, I’d just get a simple written statement saying “I hereby give [Name] the right to code my site template into a WordPress theme for commercial purposes.” Something simple like that will do. I’d do that because oral agreements are legally binding but you’d have a hard time proving that the oral agreement took place.
