Hey guys,

I was wondering if it’s possible (by Envato API) to validate a purchase using customers Username and API Key combination, instead of standard purchase code validation.

In ideal world, a customer would add their Username / API Key within theme settings on WP admin panel, and validation would check if the item is available in customers ‘downloads’ folder within the Envato marketplaces.

Any thoughts?

Thanks, Marko

Without purchase code there is no way to determine if the user is a customer or not. The alternative would be to contact you directly using the profile form.

Partially false! :) It is possible to verify the purchase of WordPress themes without a purchase code, not sure about other kind of files though…

Yes Marko, it is possible to do this only with the Envato API, you don’t need any purchase codes for this purpose. Check out the Envato Toolkit for the source code to see how it’s done: https://github.com/envato/envato-wordpress-toolkit

Well, that’s exactly what we needed anyways – an option to validate the purchase of WordPress themes. Everything perfectly clear now, thanks a bunch!

Cheers, Marko
