Testing Purchased Theme in Local Environment (XAMPP)




Not sure if this is the right place to post this, but I have a question as a customer:

Recently I started selling proyects for clients with some wp purchased themes on themeforest. Now, the thing is that some of this themes i use quite regularly. I know I must purchase a licence per every installation in a live site. But can I use live licence on a local environment for testing purposes? (for namesake: xampp).

I mean would it cause a problem with the licence itself? I wondered, since it should update the theme from a local server as well.

I’m interested since I want to increase my skill in the use of themes I’m using on real life situations, but I’m afraid of doing some tests and invalidating a licence.

Well, that’s that. If anyone could answer this, or point me in the right direction it would be greatly appreciated.



You can use the themes on your localhost as you described. ( on your computer )


Thanks for the quick reply!


All types of licenses from envato market is valid on local host.
