When purchasing Avada (or any WordPress theme) via the Themeforest marketplace, you have two licensing options; The Regular License, and the Extended License. The regular license will suffice for 99% of users. The purchasing process, invoicing and licensing is facilitated by Envato.
Below, we have listed the nuts and bolts of the Regular License for you as a quick reference, as well as a section on how to transfer a License.
To learn more about what each License is for we strongly recommend reading Themeforest’s official licensing terms.
In the event that you would like to transfer your Avada License from a test site to a live one, or from a defunct website to a new one, you can do so by following the steps below.
Step 1 – Regardless of whether you wish to transfer a license from a test site to a live site, or a defunct site to a new site, the licensing terms are clear. You can only use the license on one active site. In the case of an already registered test site, the first step would be to migrate your test site to a live server. To learn more about migrating, please read our blog article, or check out our How To Migrate Your Website with All-In-One WP Migration, and How To Migrate Your Website with Duplicator docs.
Step 2 – If you wish to reuse a license from a defunct website, the first step is to delete the old website using the current token key. If you have transferred a test site to a live site, you also need to delete the test site.
Step 3- Log into ‘My Apps’ at ThemeForest and delete the old token key there, so you can re-register it from the new site with a new name.
Step 4 – Generate a new Token Key for your live / new site. To learn how, please read how to Register your purchase via Token Key.
Step 5 – Re-register your purchase on your live site using your ThemeForest Username, your Purchase Code, and the new API Key you’ve generated.
Step 6 – Finally, you can go to the Register Envato Code tab on your support account at Theme-Fusion and update the site name using the registered purchased code, as shown below.
