Application Blocked User inputs the purchase serial number You call an application on your website that calls the envato api and checks the purchase code if false return an error message if true check if the purchase code has been activated before with your app if it was not activated add it to the activated list and activate the clients product
Can you write that for the rest of us?

Maybe if we pester and beg long enough, Envato will develop some nice API code that can easily be included into products.

Something along the lines of: Enter Envato User ID, Check if product was purchased, Allow or Deny.

Could also throw in some tracking to match usage with purchases for those who are buying a theme once and using it on multiple sites.

Sort of the same approach many PC Games have and a quick “Game x Torrent” Google search says still not bulletproof but a nightmare for customers (The TF customer who wants to switch servers, the TF customer who wants one development version on his PC and one live version on his server and the TF Reseller who needs to activate the theme to make some changes for his customer all go nuts).
who do you think can make a keygen for envato maketplaces?:))) and if they want to switch the server, no problem because their product is activated and as i said no url is saved with activation.

If i had the time i would have made it for our themes and shared it, but theme development take too much time and i am left with nothing.

You shouldn’t bother doing such thing at all.

The themes will be a mess, people want to see good code. And the last thing buyers want to do is to again activate their already purchased item before they could use it.

It’s not worth the time. IF somebody wants to hack it, he will. Furthermore, it’s not like you have some super code that will rule the world or something and that needs to be protected :-). Just create beautful working ideas and sell, forget the rest.
