Is there a developer/multi-use license?

First, I’d just like to say thanks to everyone who has repeatedly purchased UberMenu – I truly appreciate your business!

Many customers have inquired about being able to use UberMenu on multiple sites. Currently, Envato (CodeCanyon) only offers a single-use license. I would love to see a developer’s license or volume pricing available, but that has not yet become a reality.

I have petitioned for multi-use licenses in the past, but unfortunately there have not been any changes yet. As Envato is currently in the midst of a multi-stage license revamping, recent developments have suggested that Envato may be considering adding a developer’s license, but at this point there is no confirmation on that.

So what are my options for using UberMenu on multiple sites?

For now, the only option is to purchase an individual Regular License for each site on which UberMenu will be used. I do apologize for the inconvenience of having to purchase individual licenses, I know it can be frustrating for those purchasing in bulk. I hope Envato will provide a better solution for this in the future. At the moment, my hands are tied.

I have heard recently that in some cases Envato will work directly with customers who wish to purchase large quantities of a plugin, through Envato Support. It would make more sense that they just implement a cart, but in the meantime if you are looking to purchase a large number of licenses (>100), that may be a possibility.

Can’t I just pay you directly for a developer’s license?

Unfortunately, no. My exclusivity agreement with CodeCanyon means that I can only distribute UberMenu through them. Making a side-deal would break that contract and jeopardize my standing with Envato.

What about the Extended License?

A common misconception is that Envato’s Extended License allows for unlimited usage of a plugin. This is incorrect. The Extended License is a single-use license with an extra provision for redistribution. It is not applicable to customers wishing to use a product on multiple projects, whether for themselves or clients.

Hold on, you’re saying I can only use UberMenu once?

Some customers have overlooked that the CodeCanyon Regular License entitles the purchaser to a single installation.

From the licensing terms:

You are licensed to use the Item to create one single End Product for yourself or for one client

That means that for every WordPress site that you have UberMenu activated on, you need to purchase an individual Regular License. 1 site = 1 license, 2 sites = 2 licenses, 3 sites = 3 licenses, etc. It does not matter if they are all in use by the same company, on the same server, by the same developer, etc. The license terms are single use – one license per site. This is part of why the price for the product is so inexpensive.

If you’ve been using UberMenu on multiple sites with a single license, don’t worry; just go ahead and purchase the proper amount of licenses now. Thank you for your repeat business!
