That’s correct, that theme is not free. Are you saying you got an email saying it was free? Maybe it was a free item for November.
yes, received email saying it’s free but when I click on link, it’s showing paid
When did you receive the email? Monthly free items finish at midnight Melbourne, Australia time on the last day of the month, and the new ones start at some point on the first day of the new month. If it’s not that, and you got the email during December, then the most likely outcome is that the item had to be removed from the free selection for whatever reason, which is rare, but sometimes unavoidable. In such cases, a replacement from the same marketplace is usually added to the free selection instead.
Yes, you are right. maybe the Author of Driveme theme has withdrawn their nomination!
But envato now offering another one WordPress theme (Payton) for free. If you click on the ‘Download Free WP Themes’ button in your email you will find.
Edit: - Driveme theme was free to download in the last Month (November). This month (December) free WP theme is Payton.
