The idea behind GPLTools is to help website owners or small developers who have enough knowledge and experience of WordPress that they do not need the technical support that developers provide or who are running out of budget and need to buy plugins for their own projects and those of the customers. Sometimes the plugins needed for a customer’s website can cost hundreds of dollars, which is not even the budget of some developing countries. That’s why this site aims to help knowledgeable people who don’t need automatic support or updates to save money.
Most people are familiar with the term “open source“. It means a piece of software or code that is free to use. You are free to use, copy, study, change, improve or redistribute the software however you want.
WordPress is open source software and is based on the GPL (General Public License) which you can read more about on the WordPress website> here
The main point to keep in mind is that any software that is based on WordPress must carry the original GPL license.
… We strongly believe that plugins and themes are derivative works and therefore we inherit the GPL license.
What this means to you
It does not mean that the developers cannot charge you to buy the code they have developed. What it does mean is that once you have purchased that code, you will be able to do whatever you want with it.
… if you distribute copies of such a program, either free or for a fee, you must give the recipients all the rights that you have. You must ensure that they also receive or can obtain the source code. And you need to show them these terms so they know their rights.
- GPLv2 license

Please note: a short disclaimer
The main difference between us and the developer is that we do not offer any technical support for free. This is how we can redistribute the items at a fraction of the original price.
So if you think you will need ongoing technical support for a product, consider buying from the developer. Links to each developer are provided on the product pages.
We believe that we make it perfectly clear that while GPLTools products are the original products, we are not the original authors. We are simply redistributing the software, as we have the right to do so, under the GPL license. But to avoid any doubt or confusion:
We are not connected, associated with, or endorsed by any of the companies whose products are mentioned on this site. Any mention of these companies is purely so that our customers are not misled as to the original source of the product and so they have the option to buy from us or from them.
