    Seems like a great framework that I want to buy..
    One concern… Is it allowed to build commercial themes with the framowork. To sell in theme shop? If so, what about the license code?

    Hi, Bas! Sorry for the delay.

    The license key is used to activate automatic updates and make your installs your own. While your license key can be used on any number of Volatyl websites, it’s something you want to keep to yourself.

    With that being said, Volatyl is like any other framework with child themes or skins. You can build a child theme business as big as the moon. Customers of yours who use your child themes must also, of course, use Volatyl. If you’re doing client work for them, you can have them go buy Volatyl or you can get information from them to make the purchase for them. The end result should be that they have their own license key and user account at, though… unless you want to manage their website for life.

    So yes, you are totally free to build a child theme business. Please understand, though, that building child themes for a framework is nothing more than building child themes for a framework. Your customers MUST know that your child themes work only on Volatyl. It’s really their responsibility to have Volatyl before purchasing your Volatyl child themes… and your copy should make that clear.

    Does that make sense?
