Just wondering what the score is when it comes to being requested to supply a plugin for review on a site or something like that?
Yes or no? It seems kinda polite to me to be asked rather than them just obtaining the plugin by other means so thought I should ask
Can I just buy a copy myself and give it to them?
- Are you an exclusive author?
- Are you trying to sell an item that you already sold here on another marketplace?
Just wondering what the score is when it comes to being requested to supply a plugin for review on a site or something like that?This is the hardest part of your post… What do you mean by “score”? Is there a competition or something…

Please, try to be more specific so people can help you further on this.
I can see why my original phrasing may make my question a bit hard to understand, sorry about that
Basically iv been asked for a copy of a plugin for someone to review it, and im wondering it its ok to just give them a copy of my plugin, though I have read since it may be better to just buy a license myself and just give it to the chap asking for a copy to review but im not sure if either option is allowed
And yes, im an exclusive author with no work being sold elsewhere
It’s the reviewer who should buy a copy of it, imo.
Beware that the reviewer might just be tricking you to get a free copy
I had maybe thought the same but it seems if he really wanted a copy for nothing he would be able to aquire it, so seems like a legit request to me
Okay, I think that this person doesn’t need the source code to review it, they will just need to see its functionality, so simply send them the demo page. It will depend of what type of review… if it’s about the code, I don’t wanna mess with the Envato policies… But here’s what I think: (maybe some other author or a staff will correct me)
As you are the author of the item, you can give it for free to any peer as long as you’re not selling it online on other marketplaces.
Please, wait for someone to correct me on this ^ or contact Envato support about that before confirming.
If it’s about the functionality, do the first thing, simply send the demo page.
I would contact them but iv been waiting since 4th for a response about rampant piracy and dont feel it would be any better if i just slap yet another ticked into what seems like a clogged ticket system
maybe someone from staff will spot this thread whilst locking posts and give me an answer
I agree with what @Crakken said. I would just create a demo site and have them be able to access the functionality but not the source. I have seen this done before so it is possible todo. Pretty much make sure you block them from accessing the plugin editor.
