Premium plugins cannot be activated with theme purchase code?

Often users try to activate these plugins with theme purchase code which in fact won’t work. The reason is simple, Envato and plugin authors don’t allow to activate premium plugins using theme purchase code!

Each plugin has its own purchase code, and in order to activate the plugin, you need to purchase a copy for each of them.

Every theme in ThemeForest works this way with premium plugins. We are allowed to re-distribute these premium plugins with an extended license and limited rights.

Extended License covers: including the plugin in the theme, use the plugin and get the latest update via theme releases only. To get automatic updates, you need to purchase the plugin. If plugin author has made a “premium feature” that requires activation, it is not granted for Extended License owners to use it, but for individual users who purchase the respective plugin.
