The simple and obvious reason to become a member of WP Depository is to save money. Members can download commercial WordPress plugins and themes that would otherwise cost way, way more than our membership fee. All the plugins and themes we share with our members have GPL licenses which means you can use, modify and even share them with your friends if you want. The files are of course totally standard, unmodified, and kept up to date.
Things to consider
We are not the authors of any of the themes or plugins we share with members, nor are we associated with them or their companies. For this reason, we do not offer any form of support for the plugins or themes. If you are not confident of being able to set up a theme or plugin without author support, you should buy the items directly from the authors. Most authors provide either 6 or 12 month’s support for new purchases. Of course, if you’re already familiar with WordPress and don’t mind looking for answers to questions on Google, this shouldn’t be an issue.
All the themes and plugins in our download library are kept updated. We check for updates 3 days a week, and any themes or plugins which have been updated are listed on our ‘this week’s updates’ page, for convenience.
Manual Updates – In most cases, if you buy a theme or plugin from a developer you can choose to ‘auto-update’ when new versions are available. If you download a theme or plugin from our library you need to manually install it as automatic updates (which come from the developer) will not be available.
