    Hi,

    After seeing so many great premium themes on shopify store, I was wondering what's the policy on using cracked themes? (If there's any). Any experience with this?

    the themes don't need to be cracked or anything as they don't have purchase codes or anything of that sort

    You're seriously thinking about using cracked themes on a site where you're processing data and payments ?

    I rlly don't understand you mate.
    Not at all lol, just curious. Who would risk his store for a stupid mistake like that. Once I start making money I would absolutely have no problem paying a 100$ or more for a good theme.

    So how are you going to get a theme without paying ? Are you meaning to use a free theme first, then upgrade ?

    Not sure about Shopify but I know themes in Themeforest are capable of detecting cracked themes, and with Shopify I doubt they'd be careless enough to let people abuse this. Just not worth it IMO. Their free themes are actually pretty solid so you could always go for those first and once you're comfortably making a profit you could then make a run for their paid themes.

    Yeah, I uploaded a free theme I found interesting and looking modern, not even too much difference from the premium ones.

    Themeforest only sells themes I think, so they can do nothing if someone uses a cracked theme on their web, hosted by another company. At least not directly. Maybe if they report it to your hosting provider.

    You don't to crack the themes before using it. Cracking it means you need to crack the code before it works.

    If you don't think your business is worth the investment cost of a decent theme then you're probably in the wrong business.
