Blog Flipper And Client Licence

Please note that this is for email subscribers only. The email you should have received will contain an auth code for the licence, just print off the email or make sure it’s nice and safe somewhere.

Please don’t contact me saying you didn’t get the email and I could I re-send it. Or similar. The answer’s no.

I’ll repeat this again. This is for email subscribers only and the email contains an auth code. The email and the auth code together make up the licence. One is no good without the other.

Okay? 🙄


I’ve decided to…

…do something a little crazy.

I’ve been thinking about this for a while, and my gut instinct was to say “Yes, do that.” but I felt I had to think this one out for a bit and rationalise it to myself.

(Did you know we all do that?  We make decisions based on what we *want* to do, and then rationalise it to ourselves to justify what we’ve already decided to do or done.  Aren’t we all a bit funny?  Anyway…)

This is what I’ve decided to do.

Everyone that’s bought or buys ANY of my WordPress plugins or themes up to 31st March 2011 gets a full client / blog flipper licence.  Keep this email or print it out as your proof I’ve granted you that licence.

What this means is that if you build a blog with any of your purchases up to the 31st March, you can sell the blog (flip it) with all plugins included and still use the plugins on your other sites.  You can repeat this as many times as you like.

My definition of blog flipping is YOU own the top level domain, develop it to the point where it’s actually worth something, ie it’s getting traffic and earning money, and then you sell it for about or at least $200.

Fair enough?

Also, if you develop sites for your clients using the plugins or themes you’ve purchased up to today, then that’s fine too.

No extra purchase is necessary in either case, but you’ll have to issue a document (paper or digital) explaining that there are premium plugins or themes used on the site, and that support is NOT included with them.

They’ll need to purchase individual plugins if they want support for them – use your affiliate link if you like (scheme still being worked on – we’ll get there this week).

What it DOESN’T allow you to do is sell the plugins or themes.  Or give you a loophole by which you can do so – please don’t abuse these rights I’m giving you.

If you want to make money from sales of these plugins and themes, send people to me if you want to do that using your affiliate link.

I think that’s very fair, and…

This is just a thank you from me for being there as a subscriber.

When (finally! *sigh*) the PluginGreat site goes live and the affiliate scheme too, with all plugins and themes at full price…

Then anyone buying the plugins or themes will have to purchase a flipper/client licence too if that’s how they intend to use the plugin.

Until 31st March, any plugins or themes you buy or have bought to that point include a full client / blog flipper licence. IF you have the email and auth code issued today.

Sound good?

Wow Frank!

You are just one fantastic guy to do this for your subscribers. I have not seen this done before and i commend you very highly for this.

Has you know i have been a buyer and subscriber of yours for a long time (about 3 years i think) and you have always come across has the guy who cares tremendously about your subscribers.

Brilliant! what else can i say….


Rob Paris Cruisin

G’day Frank,

An unbelievable and generous offer by you.

I am not contemplating flipping any sites at the moment but it is a nice incentive.
I am sure that it would make any purchaser happy if they have no extra’s to pay.

Now bring on the PluginGreat site that is the one I am waiting on.

Righto gone to flip a coin that’s the only flipping I’ll be doing in the near future.


Rob Paris Cruisin 😎


This is great- I develop websites for clients and so for some of the plugins I really need this license for.

There are some I passed up because I didn’t want to bother with having to purchase multiple times. Is there one place where there is a list of all your plugins- I might want to go back and look over some of the ones I passed on since I can install the plugins on some of my client sites without licensing problems

Thanks for so many great plugins


Frank Haywood

@Jeff Stone:

I’ll have a single site up within a week with all plugins available on there. 🙂


thanks Frank…

thats very Much appreciated.

A flipper licence is as good as gold to me…..

Now I can add some of your great Plugins to the Blogs I sell and Flip without having to hassle you for Licences or worrying if I am Doing the right thing or not.

@Geoff Lord:

Yeah I knew some people would appreciate it more than others. 😉

Once we get to the 1st April, there’ll be offers in place for NEW products so you can pick and choose to go for the client/flipper licences where you need them.

(BTW I dug your comment out of the spam folder and marked it as not spam. You should be okay now… 🙂 )

Joe Jackson

Thank you Frank.

I’m not sure I’ll actually use this license, but it is nice to know it’s available to me.

And I certainly appreciate your being so generous.

Kevin Baker


Mighty generous of you to supply a “FREE” developer license for the PG plugins. I was going to ask you if you had plans for this, I guess i got my answer.

I am planning to offer clients purpose built high end blogs and will be incorporating some of the timer and slider plugins in those blogs so a great big thanks for the blessing.

Once again Frank you have surprised me.


Frank Haywood

@Kevin Baker:

You’re very welcome. It really is a thank you to all those people who have stuck with me and remained on my mailing list.

I have some truly great stuff coming this year that I’ve been sitting on for a while now. It’s time to get it coded up and out there. 🙂


Paul Tuttle


This great! I’ve been opting for the developers license on quite a few WordPress products I’ve purchased lately with the idea of developing sites for people.

One question – the email I received doesn’t seem to have a “auth code.” Is that coming out later today? You indicate the email alone won’t count.


Frank Haywood

@Paul Tuttle:

The auth code IS in the email. Do a search for “auth” and you’ll find it down near the end of the mail. 😉



Just a little clarification. If we purchase a plugin between now and March 31st can we sell a website with that plugin after March 31st?

I have really found some of your plugins and other WordPress products to be very useful for my affiliate business.

Frank Haywood

@Greg R.:

Yes you can. It’s a lifetime client/flipper licence, and I may not do anything like this ever again, so it’s a real good thing to have.


Mike Claggett

Fair enough Frank and a sound business decision.

But like Paul, I didn’t see an Auth Code in the email anywhere either.

It seems I either missed the sales page and didn’t get Blog Flipper or can’t find the receipt.

Could you please send me a link to it.



Frank Haywood

@Mike Claggett:

The auth code is in there. 😉

There is no product called Blog Flipper, this is a licence to use the plugins on client sites and for use if you “flip” blogs for profit. ie you buy an existing one or start it up from scratch, give it some spit and polish and build it up and then sell it for profit.


Frank, that is a cool offer. I am not longer in the business of selling web related things to clients but when I was, that would have been extremely valuable.
