Lifetime WordPress theme packages or license are becoming a rarity nowadays. Unlike early 2013, August 2013 marked a major shift in thinking of major WordPress shops with WooThemes moving into yearly renewals.
After awhile, other major WordPress theme developers followed suit, though developers like Elegant Themes, Themify and CSSIgniter started offering their lifetime license tier, albeit more expensively.
So, the question is, is it worth the price to purchase a lifetime WordPress theme package, if not a few? Read on to find out WPStarter’s take on this.
To be frank, buying a lifetime theme package is not a small commitment, especially if you are in countries where the exchange rate and the average salary is low compared to the US.
A typical lifetime WordPress theme package can easily set you USD 250 back, if not more. Also, if you are a typical end user, you will only need the theme for one or two websites you own. So yes, answering our question, is it a wise decision to pay so much?
