Great Rossimpson, i read the Envato API commercial use terms, please correct if my understanding is wrong:
You may want to charge people a fee to use your application. It’s okay if you do, but there are a few things you need to keep in mind:
- All paid applications must be made available for purchase through CodeCanyon. This isn’t exclusive (you can also make it available through any other platform or store) will ensure that all of our members can access your application!
I want to use API to verify user theme purchase license, means i don’t have my own plugin is on sell at CodeCanyone, I am making a service to validate user theme purchase license.
Means user can’t use our service without verifying there envato account and theme purchase license key.
Is this allowed right?
- You have to comply with any third party terms that apply if you sell your application through another platform.
What are the third-party terms i didn’t get, i am not selling my application on third-party marketplace. I have own service website, a subscription-based model, Which user can have our services only when they authenticate there envato account so we can check theme purchase license status.
Is it normal right?
- Make sure that you are complying with the terms of any third-party licence that might apply to other material (like code or graphics) you used to create the application, and check to see that you are allowed to sell a product using that material. You may need to pass along any rights or releases.
I am not selling the product/plugin or packaging any design stuff to follow third-party terms. I have my own consultancy service, but to avail that user need to authenticate there envato account so our system can provide service for there purchase theme if we found theme purchase license details.
Is this allowed right?
My concern is only here especially when user authenticates via envato account we get user details like name, email and item purchase code. And we also want user to register to our platform so next time user will not go via long signjup procedure. So through API we get user: NAME, and EMAIL so we can use it for user registration purposes. So through envato login authentication can we auto signup to user on our platform or ask user to by sharing there Name, email address on signup form that next stage is for registration please check the credentials you may need to change.
I want to use API to authenticate the user and user purchase on my commercial application or digital on demand service.
What your thoughts?
I found Ticksy.com is doing almost same.
