I am getting trouble activating my Visual Composer, i purchased a theme and do i have to purchase the plugins aswell?
If Visual Composer is included into a theme that you’ve purchased, then you don’t need to register and get the license of Visual Composer. The Visual Composer and other plugins (if there are more of them, like Slider Revolution) will work fine and you don’t need to buy additional license.
But, when there is a new version of Visual Composer, you can’t update it until the theme author does update the theme and version of Visual Composer which is included in theme.
On other side, you can buy license for VC (to activate it) and to have the latest version (easy update - no wait for theme author update) but that also can be a problem - what if the latest version of VC is not compatible with your theme? In that case, you still need to wait until the author update the theme.
When our customer asks the license, I’ll tell them:
We purchase the extended license from the ThemeForest. So you don’t need to buy it. You have a right to use it.
We buy an extended license for every theme. We can not give this license to the client because of ThemeForest license rules. We always give you updated version of a visual composer / Slider Revolution.
Thanks a lot.
