FAQ

Why choose GPLOCEAN?

We believe in the open source community and believe that WordPress should be available to all.

Unfortunately premium plugin and theme authors refuse to decouple support from the code, they won’t set regional price differences and they rarely offer discounts to students, low waged or the young.

We are providing a third way by redistributing the code without any unneeded extras.

How can you offer the products at such low prices?

All WordPress files 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 membership to our site goes towards maintaining and buying the subscriptions 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.

Is support included?

No. If you require technical support regarding a plugin or theme then you will need to either purchase the file directly from the author (a link is provided) or you will need to hire a freelancer to take a look for you. Alternatively you could ask around some of the helpful WordPress community forums.

Not offering support is the way in which we are able to offer the files at the discounted price.

Are these genuine files?

Yes, 100%. We have active subscriptions to the authors of the files.

We download from them and redistribute to you.

How many sites can I use the plugin or theme on?

As many as you like. The plugins and themes are GPL licenced so you can use them as often as you like on as many sites as you like.

Got a friend who’s building a site? Go share them with your friend. Seriously, there are no catches.

Do you provide updates?

Yes. As soon as we are notified about an update, we go and download it from the author and update it on our site.

Can I keep the plugins/themes after my subscription has ended?

Sure. Under the GPL licence you’re free to keep them if you want.

The only thing to be aware of is that if you want access to any future updates then you’ll need to have an active subscription with us.
