Frequently Asked Questions

Are the plugins altered in any way?

Nope, all the plugins and themes are obtained securely by downloading directly from the original authors and I just redistribute it without any alterations.


  

How can you offer such a low prices?

Short answer: all the distributed products are 100% open source software, GPL licensed, without costly bundled support licenses.

The GPL license allows users to use, share, modify and redistribute software as they wish. All the packages you can download here are licensed under GPL and because of that, I can distribute it to empower the masses.

That’s why I can bring such low prices to you. I’m charging you only for the task of keeping things up to date and working for you.

Need commercial support? Custom coding? Modifications to the code? Then consider buying every plugin directly from the original developer.


 

Have you really purchased every plugin and theme from their authors?

All the plugins and themes are downloaded from their authors’ official websites. I purchased some of them. But the vast majority are downloaded thru donated accounts.

Lots of customers have shared their login data with me in order to grant me access to download from official sites. That kind of contribution is always welcomed as it will allow others to prosper in an altruistic manner.

That is the essence of GPL license and the philosophy of this website: practice the more altruism to help more people to reach success.


 

Do you provide support for these items?

I can answer basic install questions. But generally can’t help further. I am only redistributing these tools.

These pieces of software are developed by third parties and if you don’t know how to implement one plugin or your developer find in a situation where the author should be contacted, or if you installed the plugins in so many sites and those manual updates are too much work for you, then you need to purchase support service and updates from them. This will also show your appreciation for their work and help them financially to keep up working.


 

Can I use these themes and plugins with WP.com?

Unfortunately WordPress.com does not allow the use of custom themes.

If you would like to use a custom theme of any kind, you will need to purchase your own hosting account and install the free software from WordPress.org.


 

Can you provide License Keys?

All the products offered in this website are licensed under GNU GPL License. Hence you do not need any license keys to use them in as many of your projects you need.

These plugins and themes only require license keys to get automatic updates from their authors. Those licenses can be purchased ONLY from their respective developers. If you don’t own a license, you simply download the plugin and upgrade it manually by deactivating it first in your install, overwriting its files, and then activating it again. Easy peasy.

Before you start asking: I cannot and won’t provide/lease/release/resell license keys. When an update is released, I will update the download links that you can access while your subscription is active in My Account page.


 

Why are these plugins asking for a license key?

Almost all premium plugins will prompt you to enter a license key. This entitle you to get automatic updates directly from their authors, but if you don’t enter a license key it won’t limit or reduce the plugin functionality, nor effect your website look and feel in any way. I provide the direct download link to the plugin, and while your subscription is active, you can download it and apply the upgrade manually.

So, you can safely ignore those alerts.

Regarding the WooCommerce plugins, you can even remove the warning by using a single line of PHP in your functions.php file. You can do it yourself by following these steps.


 

How can I cancel/suspend my subscription?

While your subscription is active you can access the download links in My Account page. Within that page, you can see your subscription info and you can click “Cancel Subscription” button whenever you want and the system will stop charging the monthly access fee to your card. Definitely. You are free to cancel your subscription at any time. It’s that simple.

Remember that if you click Cancel Subscription, you are saying “stop charging me, I don’t want to download anything, anymore”, and that’s why the download links will become immediately unavailable. You will need to repurchase your subscription and pay an upfront month if you want/need to access those download links again.

A soft solution is available to avoid the administrative mess: you can freeze your subscription by pressing just the “Suspend Subscription” button, which will also hide the download links, but the payments will be paused until you Unsuspend it. This is useful if you can’t pay the next month or just don’t need access to the downloads for a while.

Also, consider this project is helping hundreds of web developers all around the world to enhance they knowledge and to build better websites. The monthly fee you pay is used to invest on more GPL plugins and themes to bring here for you. That’s why keeping your subscription active allows this website to continue offering the best premium products.


 

If I purchased the downloads but did not used it. Can I request a refund?

If you downloaded any of the products under the subscription, I won’t grant refunds due to the digital nature of the items being distributed.

The system will ask Paypal to charge automatically your card on every due date and once the payment is received I cannot make any refunds. This is to avoid abusers who register one time, download everything and cancel the subscription. That’s just not fair.

So, if you do not want to continue, please cancel/suspend your subscription before the due date of next payment, which will arrive exactly after ONE month of your last payment.

I can grant refunds ONLY IF you made a purchase but you downloaded NONE of the items. Every download link has an associated tracking code which allows me to granularly analyze your subscription activity, and if you meet this requisite, I’ll will be pleased to reimburse your last payment.


 

What channels can I choose to get update notifications?

You can choose from a variety of ways. You can read about it here.
