Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)
We hope you find them useful and a good source of general information.
Why choose GPL Vault?
We believe in the open source community and believe that WordPress should be available to all.Unfortunately premium plugin and theme authors refuse to decouple support from the code, they won’t set regional price differences and they rarely offer discounts to students, low waged or the young.We are providing a third way by redistributing the code without any unneeded extras.
What is GPL?
GPL is the abbreviated version of “General Public License.” WordPress is open-source software released under the GNU General Public License (GPL). It was created by forking another GPL-licensed project; almost all the top plugin, extension developers follow GPL. At GPLMall, we provide files that are fully licensed under the GNU GPL, just like WordPress.
How can you offer the products at such low prices?
WordPress items such as WooCommerce plugins are licensed under the General Public Licence (GPL).This means that once we have purchased the item we are free to redistribute it if we choose to do so.Your membership to our site goes towards maintaining and buying the subscriptions to 3rd party theme and plugin authors. This form of crowd funding helps keep prices low and we can then pass this benefit on to you.
