Frequently Asked Questions

  • Am I required to have a premium version?

    Not at all. You can leverage our user management and in depth analytics by integrating Freemius into your plugin or theme without having a premium version.

  • Can I use Freemius if my plugin is hosted on

    YES YOU CAN! is a great source for "free traffic". We designed the deployment process to keep your free plugin or theme fully compliant with guidelines.

  • Will this work with other platforms like Drupal?

    We designed Freemius to work with any platform by designing a robust RESTful API. Having said that, we are currently focused on WordPress plugins and themes, and built a designated WordPress SDK that makes the integration ridiculously simple. We will be building more custom platform SDKs soon.
