The DevTeam Alpha News Aggregation service has sourced the following article originally published on AIT Themes:
What is the Full Membership? Is is affordable? Why should I consider membership over single product purchase? These are questions that interests you the most. Therefore we looked closer to Pre-Sale questions and summed up the answers for you.
In this post, you will find all the practical information about validity of Full Membership, updates of our WordPress themes and our pricing policy.
Validity of Full Membership
Full Membership is valid for 1 year from the day of subscription. This means that for 365 days you have access to:
- all WP themes
- all WP plugins
- all graphics
- technical support
- regular updates
Price of Full Membership
The current price of Full Membership is always displayed on our website. From time to time we run special offers on WordPress themes, plugins or even bundles. If you opt in for the Full Membership, you’ll get access to all themes and plugins for a single price that’s final for you. This means we do not charge any extra fees.
If you’re subscribing as a private customer from European Union, we are obliged to charge you the Value Added Tax (VAT) on top of the subscription price. VAT rate depends on your country of residence. We pay this tax to your country of residence.
Renewal price of Full Membership after 1 year
One of the most frequently asked questions is how much will the membership cost after the first year.
There is a simple answer to that. We are happy to guarantee the lowest possible price for you. This means that for Membership renewal, you’ll pay either the same amount or less than you paid before.
You will pay less if, at the time of your Membership renewal, the price for the same membership is lower than what you paid. If the price is higher, you’ll be charged your special price you paid before. It cannot happen that you will pay more. Therefore it makes sense to renew your membership every year for the best deal we offer.

Usage Licence overview
How many times can you use your purchased WordPress themes, plugins or graphics? And for how many customers?
With Full Membership you’re getting a commercial licence and at the same time unlimited domain usage. This means that you can create an unlimited number of websites for you and your customers using our WP themes, plugins and other products. You can use everything included in the Full Membership as many times as you like.
By purchasing Full Membership (even if it’s just one-off, without further renewals after the first year) you also get Lifetime usage license.
Lifetime licence entitles you to continue using already downloaded WP themes, plugins and graphics even after your membership has expired. Beware, you must download the installation packages before the membership expires. After that you’ll lose access to our system and will be unable to download anything further. Not even the old version of themes you’ve been using.
Lifetime licence does not apply to updates and support. WordPress themes and plugins updates as well as support are only available during the validity period of your Membership.
Why is it not possible to download themes once the Membership expires
WordPress themes, plugins and graphics are fully available only to our customers with an active Membership. We do not provide access to our system for non-members. Also updates and security fixes are being issued on a regular basis and chances are that your theme will be updated too. You’re not entitled to updates after leaving the Ait Themes club and by not renewing your membership you’re taking on full responsibility for the security of your website.
Even though it is no longer possible to download themes once the Membership validity expires, the previously installed templates will remain yours and you can still use them going forward. The limitation is the above mentioned absence of updates and support.
How to pay for Full Membership
Full Membership price must be paid via our website, using the 3rd party payment system Paypal. This is a convenient and secure payment method. We do not have access to your card details.
Have your realized that you do not need access to all professional WP themes, plugins and graphics? No worries, we also offer single WordPress themes alongside with bundles. Visit product page of a specific theme or plugin to see the price. However, we encourage you to always check the special bundles promotions. You can choose the WP theme or package that is most convenient for you.
