Shop Owner License FAQ

Selling on Creative Market takes the stress out of writing your own license terms - we provide all of the licenses!

All products sold on Creative Market are covered by the Standard License. You may also choose to offer an Extended License for non-installable items (this is a default but is optional.) Due to requirements from Wordpress, our Wordpress themes are sold under the GPL

Under the Standard License, an Item may be used to create an End Product. That End Product may be sold up to 500 times. If you would like to create an End Product and sell more than 500 copies, please purchase an Extended license. End Products must be significantly different than the original Item and require time, effort, and skill to produce. End Products must not be used or sold in a way that is directly competitive with the original Item you purchased. End Products must not redistribute the original Item to any third parties in a manner that allows for the extraction of the original Item.

The exceptions to the 500-sale limit are installable items, including Fonts and Add-ons. Under the Standard License for Fonts and Add-ons, you may use an installable item to create unlimited End Products that will be sold unlimited times, as long as you do not redistribute the original Item to any third parties or create an End Product that allows for the extraction of the original Item (such as embedding).

You can read more about our licenses here. Additionally, we've provided FAQs and Use Cases in our Help Center.

Can I offer my own license, or a custom license?

We know that our licenses don't fit every customer's licensing needs, and we're excited to help you capture many of these customers on Creative Market by helping negotiate and close custom licensing opportunities that potential customers send your way. Instead of allowing our sellers to offer custom licenses directly from your product listings, we’re offering a brand new Custom License service, where we can take the burden of negotiating custom deals off your plate by crafting agreements that are fair and valuable.

If you're ever contacted about a custom license, please feel free to reach out to our team HERE. We’d love to use our resources to put together contracts that allow you to pursue these opportunities with confidence!
