All our premium products(themes, plugins or extensions) come with one year of product updates and support. A premium product purchase includes a single domain license and immediate access to all new version updates and features released for your product for one year.
When you buy a product (themes, plugins or extensions), you get it for a lifetime and you can use it on as many websites as you want because our products are under GPL license. But, support and updates are only provided to the domain where the license is activated.
The renewal fee is for product support and updates. If you want to get updates and support after one year, you can renew the product license. This model is the best way we can provide world-class support, maintain themes & plugins and add requested features and enhancements.
If you don’t renew the product license, you can continue using it for a lifetime. The only difference would be to support and theme & plugin updates.
