Theme license

When purchasing a theme from ThemeForest, you have two licensing options: Regular License and Extended License. If your end product, including the item, will be free to the end user, then a Regular License is what you need. An Extended License is required if the end user must pay to use the end product.

The billing, licensing terms, and process are handled by Envato, and we have no control over these aspects. Click here to learn more about what each license is for and which one to purchase.


One license is valid for one domain only. If you want to use the theme on another domain, then you have to purchase another license.

Common questions

1 If I need to use the theme on a second site, do I need a second license?

Yes. One theme purchase allows you to use it on one finished site. If you need to use it on a second site, you must purchase a second license.

2 Can I use the theme on a test site and then move it to a live site when finished?

Yes, you can. You can keep the theme on a test site to build it, then move it to the live site once you’re finished.

3 Can I keep a test and live sites with one Regular License purchase?

You can keep one test/staging website and one live website with one Regular License. Keep in mind that you must use the same domain.

4 Do I need a new license to use the theme on a WordPress multisite?

Since the multisite websites are located under one domain, it is allowed to use WordPress Multisite under a Regular License.
