Can I use OceanWP as Parent Theme

I want to develop a theme for themeforest using OceanWP (a free theme) as a parent theme which is perfect with Elementor plugins. Is it allowed to use OceanWP theme as parent theme for my WordPress theme on themeforest?

Just my personal opinion it will not be acceptable because you can’t use a free theme as your parent theme for selling on themeforest wordpress category. For selling on themeforest you have to make a theme from the scratch. You have to use your own coding, premium aesthetics design and functionality.


@mgscoder Thanks for your reply. Layerswp is also being used as parent theme to sell child wordpress themes on themeforest and Layerswp is also free theme or am I wrong ?

just I share my personal opinion rest thing you can try. Just I think will not be acceptable.

Sorry i think it is not allowed.

@Template-Geek may be @kailoon can reply on it
