How is a theme price made? Can I influence the pricing of my themes?
The cost of your template is created after the product has passed all verification stages. It depends on the quality of the theme and the provided services. A vendor can adjust the offered price by up to 15%.
Can I change a theme price after it’s uploaded on your site?
Yes, you can submit a request upon changing the theme’s cost via email email@example.com. Later on, this option will be available in the vendor’s profile.
Will our clients be provided with your pre-sales support?
Yes, your clients can get the relevant support from the Sales department via chat.
Will the Sales department recommend my themes alongside other products?
Yes, the Sales department will recommend your themes together with other items from the marketplace.
Can I provide any kind of additional services with a theme?
No, you cannot provide any additional services.
What licenses will a client receive upon purchasing a theme?
A client will be provided with a choice of 4 types of licenses:
SINGLE-SITE LICENSE. It allows a client to use one theme on one website. If a client wants to use one theme on several sites, he will need to purchase the same theme once again.
DEVELOPER LICENSE. It allows a client to install one theme on up to 5 different websites or up to 5 different projects.
BUYOUT LICENSE. This license guarantees that a template will no longer be available for purchase in TemplateMonster’s catalogue or to other users. A client cannot redistribute/resell the theme after purchasing a Buyout License.
GPL LICENSE. After purchasing a template, a client is allowed to copy, modify and redistribute (including commercial purposes) the product. A client should also guarantee that the owners of all subsidiary products will be granted the aforementioned rights.
What’s the procedure to get a refund for an acquired theme?
When a client requests a refund, his request goes to the Ticket System, where it should be resolved by a vendor in the shortest period of time. If a vendor cannot offer a solution or reach an agreement with a client, the request can be escalated and Customer Care department representatives will make a final decision regarding such request. If a client gets a refund, then the received commission is deducted from a vendor’s account balance.
Can I promote products that are not listed on your site?
It’s strictly forbidden to promote competitors’ products, so you cannot offer your clients those products that are not provided on the marketplace.
