HI, I have HTML template and I was offererd it to be converted into Drupal version. I am not sure how to do it. I was told that I need to open a support ticket here on Envato and let them know that I am letting the devloper “name” to convert my html tempalte “name” into “drupal” and sell it on his account. Apparently he has done it before and from his portfolio I can tell he has indeed.
I am just curious on how to “technically” it. I was explained that extended license does not allow him to resell my template here on themforest and to do so we need to do the money part outside of envanto.
As I am not planning to do do the Drupal version I am quite ineterested but I want it to be legal.
One more thing is, what happend if someone purchase the extanded license of my html and do the Drupal version quicker then he will?
Thanks for your help!
For example, if you don’t know how to code a Wordpress, Joomla or Drupal theme, you can partner up with another author and let him/her convert your template to a desired CMS. People usually form a partnership, for example, they share 50/50 profits of that newly coded theme every month. Or a person who owns a HTML template sells the exclusive rights to that coder to convert it to another CMS, and then the coder takes all 100% of that profits forever (but in this case, HTML template author usually sells those rights for $1000+, depending on the complexity of the template, sales, and many other factors)
If you want that kind of partnership, you should make an agreement with your partner on how will you share your profits, or if you’re selling the rights, what is the price tag for the rights.
Then, you send an e-mail to Envato Support that you’re allowing that author to convert your HTML template and that’s it.

That’s not allowed, even if someone buys an extended license, they’re not allowed to convert it to any other CMS without your permission and sell it on Themeforest. If that happens, you just send an email to Envato Support and they will take that file down immediately.
Great, thanks for your help! You clarified things a bit more. So you say an exlusive rate with no percentage split after should be for more then $1000? I know it depends on many factors but on everage.
Some people charge more than $1000 for a PSD template rights(if the PSD is detailed and has a good amount of pages). If you have a HTML, and it’s very good, and has good number of sales, you should at least double it, in my opinion. I don’t know the exact money amounts because people don’t disclose exact amount on the forums, but I’ve read some circa amounts here and there.
