All WordPress items such as plugins and themes are licensed under the General Public Licence (GPL). This means that once we have purchased the item we are free to redistribute it if we choose to do so. Your purchase to our site goes towards maintaining and buying new products to 3rd party theme and plugin authors. This form of crowd funding helps keep prices low and we can then pass this benefit on to you. Our products don’t include premium support. That’s why we can offer up to 95% discounts on must-have commercial WordPress plugins.
As we sell GPL licensed Premium themes and plugins i.e digital assets availed through a private close-knit community of developers. Some of the assets are developed in-house by our developers too. To give a better idea of why I don’t have any suppliers, first of all, I need to give a brief idea of what is GPL and how it works.
What do we sell at oyeWP?
GPL License means the right to redistribute, modify, resell digital assets. It’s basically a free software redistribution
License. Our Products are installed on CMS like WordPress which is already an open-source GPL Licensed CMS (Content
Management system) and Premium Themes and plugin being the derivative work of WordPress core also needs to be
released under GPL License. Anybody is free to modify or can directly request the authors or bring in a team of
developers to get a theme/plugin released under GPL license. But every web designer out there doesn’t have the expertise/resources to get it done and that’s where OyeWP comes into play.
How do I obtain these Products?
We request the authors to comply with the GPL regulations and provide us with the GPL version of their Premium
Theme/plugin. Being a PHP developer myself and having reach to a lot of developers and related communities, we obtain
a lot of our products through a pool of close-knit private community of developers. In some cases when we are unable to
reach the Plugin/theme’s author, we resort to in-house release of the assets under GPL license.
How we differ from Original Authors
Assets released under GPL License have some limitations as they are only allowed to use static code i.e one is able to
modify/redistribute only the static code and not use Template Libraries or other importable assets that need to connect to
the author’s server. Themes/plugins released under GPL License are not auto upgradable too as It depends on the connection
to the author’s server.
As you can clearly notice the nature of our business and obtain our product from multiple sources and none of them
require us to make a purchase of the product. we just need to leverage our reach to the developer’s community and This form of crowd funding helps keep prices low and we can then pass this benefit on to you. Our products don’t include premium support. That’s why we can offer up to 95% discounts on must-have commercial WordPress plugins.
