I want to use it for my business and I want to sell services through my business. Does that mean I need to buy the extended license? If yes, then that makes ThemeForest useless to me (I can go to Freelancer with $2700 and get a better website)
I’m trying to start a SaaS website where some pages are public (landing page, login, contact us, …) and after login users will have access to private section of the website for which they need to pay subscription fee.
Now I need the template for the public side of the website. For private section, someone else will design those pages.
In other words, every page in the website template I intend to buy from ThemeForest will be publicly available to use/view.
With that said, is a regular license enough for me?
I suggest you ask official support. Items used to not be allowed to be used in any kind of SaaS. I can’t find that rule, but only envato themselves would be able to confirm it. Envato Market Help and Support
It might be the case but (wothout checking) I remeber a lot of the items that appear under a search for SaaS are themes/tempaltes for marketing SaaS rather than being the necessary componenets, layouts, technology, scripts etc, under which to actually but the SaaS itself.
