What is GPL?
The GNU General Public License (GNU GPL or GPL) is a widely used free software license, which guarantees end users the freedom to run, study, share and modify the software. The GPL is a copyleft license, which means that derivative work can only be distributed under the same license terms.
Freedom to redistribute
Freedom to distribute […] means you are free to redistribute copies, either with or without modifications, either gratis or charging a fee for distribution, to anyone anywhere.
Why choose SimplyWP?
We aim to provide a way to help people build powerful and successful WordPress powered websites, without the high costs associated with maintaining premium plugin licenses.
Premium plugins and themes can rarely be purchased without the support that comes with it, and most of the time, you will rarely need support for all the plugins, themes or extensions you need. Still having to pay for all those licenses, the cost of launching, running and maintaining your website quickly adds up.
Freelancers, Integrators and designers
When developing a website, you might need to test out the best plugin for the project you are working on, or test the compatibility of a multiple plugins for a client’s project. Premium plugins might be the solution but you’d have to make sure they work with the environment you are working with. Providing access to a full range of premium plugins and themes, you are now able to test out the best solution or custom development you build for your clients, and still keep on budget.
With the help of our growing community, we hope filling the gap between free and premium plugins by offering full featured plugins to smaller or starting website owners so they can build great websites for their project or idea.
How can you offer the products at such low prices?
By pooling memberships revenues from our website, we are able to purchase the plugins available in our repository and provide regular updates provided by the plugins, themes or extensions authors.
Since we don’t provide support for those plugins, we can afford keeping the cost to a minimum for you.
Are the downloads legal?
Absolutely! WordPress is GPL licensed and the plugins, extensions and themes available for it must carry out the GPL license. This means we are free to redistribute the code to anyone and anywhere.

An item I downloaded is asking for a registration code. What to do?
You can safely ignore those. Original authors will ask you to input a license in order to get automatic updates of the plugin or theme, but it won’t affect in any way the behaviour of the plugin or theme.
Can I make a request for a plugin?
Sure, and we welcome it. Please use the contact form on our website if you can’t find what you are looking for. We don’t make promises to if or when we will add the requested software, but we will surely look into it and if the request satisfies our repository criterions, we will schedule it to be inserted into our main repository.
Can I upgrade from a monthly to annual subscription and will it cost me more?
Sure, if you want to test us for a month and upgrade, then by all means you should do it. You can always upgrade to a longer term and only pay the difference between the two packages.
Some restrictions may apply if you benefited of a special offer or coupons.
How long does a membership last?
We currently offer monthly, quarterly and annual subscription. The longer the subscription, the more you save.
Are there any restrictions on the number of downloads?
We only monitor downloads to prevent abuse of our network, but besides that, no. You can download every download from our repository.
Can I keep the plugins/themes after my subscription has ended?
Sure you can! Just remember that you won’t get updated version of the software you use if you don’t have an active subscription.
How do I contact you to report a trademark/copyright violation?
We make sure that we provide only GPL licensed (or similar copyleft license) in our repository.
We only use the products names nominatively as a way to identify them and don’t claim any rights on the trademarked items we carry.
We also made clear on every page of our website that we only redistribute third party made software under the GPL license.

Can I get a refund?
We do not provide refunds.
We kept our fee structure to a minimum and provided a monthly subscription so you can test out our services with minimum risk involved on your behalf.
We aim to provide outstanding services and prevent abuse of our network. Providing refunds would prevent us from achieving those goals.
That being said, if you feel that we could provide a better service or something is not meeting our high standard of service, please do contact us and we will be happy to assist you further
Can I cancel anytime?
Sure, we aim to provide an outstanding service and provide all the tools you need for you to achieve a successful website. So if you feel we aren’t able to provide you that, please let us know if we can do anything to make that happen.
That being said, beside the fact that we would be sad to see you leave, you are free to do so anytime you want. Just login your account and cancel your subscription. You’ll have access until the end of your billing cycle.
