Welcome to the ultimate list of WordPress themes and plugins with a lifetime license.
Keeping your site updated is essential. That is the challenge that lifetime updates helps me solve.
I update the list frequently, so contact me using the contact form on the site if you see a correction or addition. Some links are affiliate links, my affiliate statement is at the bottom of the page. Because things change or I might make a mistake, be sure to check the terms of anything you buy.
Points to keep in mind when shopping
- It is up to each business to decide their own offerings and pricing based on their needs and market assessment. When evaluating for purchase, remember that the business decides the pricing and the customers decide if the item and price make sense for them.
- "Lifetime" is the lifetime of the theme or plugin, not your lifetime.
- Pricing changes are common in business. A reputable business will honor your lifetime license if they change the license terms, but it is a good practice to look at reviews and ask other users about their experiences.
- Most items in the list have a GPL licence. If the software is open source then what are you paying for? Typically, you are paying for updates, terms of support, the number of sites where you can receive updates and support, and possibly access to other services.
- Some licenses are limited to sites you own, while others allow you to use the software on client sites, though only you will receive support. Keep these things in mind when shopping.
Affiliate Disclosure: Some of the links in the post above are "affiliate links." This means if you click on the link and purchase the item, I will receive an affiliate commission. You will still pay the standard amount so there is no extra cost to you.
