Many themes sold on the marketplace come bundled with premium plugins from wpmet.
A plugin is an additional component that offers functionality and features beyond a typical WordPress installation. Theme authors (who sell the themes) may choose to include certain plugins (such as Elements KIt) within their themes to add these special functions and features to the theme.
When a Theme packages the plugin with the theme itself, it’s the same exact plugin that we sell individually on Wpmet. But only the stand-alone version is eligible for Premium Benefits, like Auto-update, Premium support, extra PRO layouts. so many customers choose to purchase the plugin individually as well to unlock its full potential.
Our plugins may ask for a purchase code for registration/activation once installed, however, you can simply ignore these messages as bundled plugins do not require activation or registration. The plugin will still work as intended with the theme once the theme has been activated/registered.
When a plugin is updated, the theme author will include the latest version of the bundled plugin with their next theme update. So you can easily update the bundled plugin when you next update your theme.
