Opting in to the Extended License

Opting-In to the Extended License

The Envato Marketplaces offer buyers several types of licenses under which to purchase items.

By agreeing to become an author you allow your items to be sold under a Regular License by default. However, you can also opt-in to sell your items under an Extended License. By opting into the Extended License, you are allowing your items to be licensed for unusual purposes for a larger sum of money.

The benefits of allowing your items to be sold under the Extended License are:

  1. They become more useful to buyers with specific needs.
  2. You can make more money out of your item, because a single sale of an Extended License is worth between 5 and 50 times the regular price of an item.

To find out what selling your items under an Extended License means, you should read our licenses introduction, FAQs, and the full license terms for the item type you're planning to sell. 

If you wish to offer buyers your items under an Extended License, you will need to opt in to the license.

Opting In To The Extended License For Your Items For Sale

Opting in to the Extended License for your items is easy. All you need to do is:

  1. When logged in, click My Profile at the top of the page.
  2. Click on the Edit tab.

  4. Click the tickbox next to Extended License.
