The Aelia Tax Display by Country plugin was originally sold via CodeCanyon. We’re currently reorganising our business and, as part of the operation, we are going to consolidate our offer and move all our products to a single, new licensing system. The new system will allow us to manage product licences, updates and support more efficiently, as well as resume sales to UK consumers and non-VAT registered business. As part of the consolidation process, we had to remove the Tax Display by Country plugin from the CodeCanyon marketplace.
The Tax Display by Country plugin is still in active development and compatible with the latest version of WooCommerce. The Aelia Tax Display by Country plugin is currently available directly from our shop: https://aelia.co/shop/tax-display-by-country-for-woocommerce/. When we will move the product to the new licensing system, you will have the option to transfer your licence to it and retain access to our updates and support service.
Update – 04 May 2021 13:00 CEST
Some users reported that the removal of the Tax Display by Country plugin from the CodeCanyon marketplace was sudden. We had planned to announce the change in the next few weeks, and move our Tax Display plugin to the new platform in June. Yesterday, we have been informed that CodeCanyon updated the guidelines for the products sold via their marketplace. Our solution complies with the new guidelines, with the exception of a few minor elements that don’t affect its functionalities. Despite that, the Envato Team chose to disable our product, without warning, pending a review.
Although we understand the new guidelines, and we would be happy to follow them, we don’t agree with the sudden removal of our product from the CodeCanyon marketplace. Our solution runs on thousands of our customers’ sites, and works perfectly with the latest version of WordPress and WooCommerce. We would have appreciated, and considered more professional, if they informed us, and gave us sufficient notice to address the discrepancies.
Due to this, and to the fact that we had already planned to move our product to another platform, we decided to start the migration process immediately. We considered this approach more effective than trying to rush an update, push for a review, and get the product back online on CodeCanyon just for a few weeks.
How this change could affect you
The policies applied by the Envato/CodeCanyon grant access to six months of support from the date of purchase. If you bought the Aelia Tax Display by Country plugin from that marketplace and have an active support service, simply contact us, with your purchase code (see Envato – Where is my purchase code?). We will provide you with support for the remainder of the covered period.
If you don’t wish to avail of our support service, and you have a valid CodeCanyon purchase code, you can still get access to updates for the Tax Display by Country. To do so, please forward us the original purchase code via our contact form and we will send you the instructions to keep receiving the updates.
What are the differences in terms of licensing, support and updates?
The terms of licensing offered by CodeCanyon are different from the ones that we offer via our website. You can find a quick comparison below.

|Licence type||GPL . You are allowed to install and activate the plugin on as many sites as you like (see Benefits of the GPL licence)||CodeCanyon’s Standard Licence. The licence allowed users to install the plugin on a single site (see https://codecanyon.net/licenses/standard). The terms of sale of the marketplace prohibited using the plugin on multiple sites.|
|Updates||Automatic updates are provided for one site per licence. You can install the plugin on other sites, which you have to have to update manually. The licence includes updates for one year. After that period the licence has to be renewed to receive further updates.||Automatic updates were provided for one site per licence. CodeCanyon granted access to updates for the lifetime of the product. “Lifetime” meant until the product was retired, or removed from the CodeCanyon marketplace, as it happened in this case.|
|Support||The support service is available for the duration of the licence, which is one year.||Access to the support service was available for six months from the date of purchase. It had to be renewed every six months.|
Update – October 2021
On the 1st of October, 2021, we moved all our products to the Freemius platform. The same terms described in the Aelia column, above, still apply to the products after the migration.
What happens after the support service bought from CodeCanyon will expire?
When the support service you bought from CodeCanyon will expire, you will just have to get a new licence from our site. This will grant you another year of updates and support.
If you have any questions, please feel free to contact us at any time. We will be happy to give you all the information you need. Thanks.
