    So right off the bat, I'm going to say that this is probably a very stupid question, but I'm going to ask it nonetheless.. hahaha

    So I have an old site, and it has a nulled Wordpress theme on it.

    Obviously, this isn't allowed.

    I want to sell the site on Flippa.

    Would I be best of changing the theme before selling it, or are the chances anything happening low?

    I don't how works Flippa seller side, but maybe you can discuss that with the buyer (?).
    Or, if you are sure to sell the website at a good price, just bought the full version of the nulled theme.

    Just in my opinion...

    Yeah, good idea. Might just change pay and a buy a nice theme before I sell it.

    Yeh, I would buy the theme...

    The last thing you want is a buyer reporting you...

    If your into risk, you could wait until it sells then swap the theme with the legit version last minute. BUT, if you have the cash I'd save yourself the hassle and just buy a theme.

    Yeah, doesn't seem like it's worth the risk. I'll probably just buy the theme before I list it. Thanks!

    i have heard that nulled themes have chances of containing or getting easily infected with the viruses. Why don't you change the theme and then sell it?
