As the rule, each plugin license is a limited support time within 6 months, which includes access to the premium support forum and the ability to automatically update the plugins.
In fact, there are two methods to live a license, they are Extending and Renewing Item Support. Please follow Where can I find out about renewing and extending item support on Envato?
The support options available to you depend on when you make the support purchase.
- A support upgrade is 6 months of additional support that you can purchase at the time of buying the item.
- A support extension is 6 months of support that can be purchased at any time after the initial purchase of the item, provided the current support period hasn’t expired.
- A support renewal is 6 months of support that you can purchase after any existing support for an item has expired.
To be eligible to extend or renew the support you must have less than 6 months of support remaining and the author must still be supporting the item. You will then be able to purchase a support extension or renewal from the Downloads or Item page. The cost of support is determined by the type of support and is calculated as a percentage of the item price (the price paid to the author for the item license).
How do I renew or extend my support?
In order to extend or renew an item’s support offering, you must have less than 6 months of the existing support period remaining and also the author must still be offering support on their item.
To renew the support component on an item, please follow these steps:
- Log in to your account
- Hover over your username and click ‘Downloads’ from the drop-down menu.
- The downloads section displays a list of all the items purchased using your account.
- Click on ‘Renew support now!’ or ‘Extend now’ next to the item you wish to renew the item support for and that’s it!
* Important note: After you renew your item support, you have to re-authenticate to update the renewal status on our system, just follow this guide to re-authenticate. It will take time to proceed with this request to the server and you can post tickets on the premium support forums until the renewal status is updated successfully on our system.
