The Benefits of Using Nulled Plugins or Themes

The purpose of our GPL Cellar plugin is to not undermine the efforts of developers, instead our plugin hopes to help them by making our customers aware of plugins and themes they never knew existed and eventually becoming a customer of theirs. “Say What!?” Yes, this will likely sound crazy to some of those reading this depending on what your belief is regarding the GPL license and development in general but let me first explain where I am coming from and hopefully you can see the benefits of using our plugin.

We all know WordPress is a great platform and its ever increasing market share that powers so many websites continues to grow and with such popularity a huge library of themes and plugins are available. I would argue a negative implication of WordPress’s popularity is the number of plugins that are available. There are literally thousands beyond thousands of plugins (58,664 according to as of June 3, 2021) hosted on WordPress’s plugin directory that you can choose from and the choices can be overwhelming when you want to enable simple features to a website. Search on the plugin directory for “contact form” and you will receive 49 pages of potential plugins to choose from. The great thing about the plugins here is, they are all freely available for you to use on any number of WordPress websites. Fantastic! The downside you will often times find is there are features you really need or think you might need, that are only available on the “Pro” plans of provided plugins. Bummer! So what do you end up doing next? We go back to our list of available plugins and find one that has a feature we need in their free version. We then rinse and repeat this process until we find exactly what we want, if we are lucky. Some times, I end up installing two very similar plugins because what was available in the “pro” version I could get in their free version, so in actuality the sums of two equal one whole. Crazy!

The madness of playing “plugin roulette” had to stop for me and eventually did because I was spending too much time trying to find the right match of plugins to use for my next project. I started dishing out the money and paying for premium plugins know that if clients are paying me to build them a website then I can carry that cost over to my client. I can justify this to myself and clients because it’s no different than having a house built where it costs “X” amount for labor and “Y” amount for the materials. Given this model you can almost think about it as having an endless supply of money and having any premium plugin you want available because the cost will be passed along to the client who needs it. Am-I-right?! No.

I don’t just build websites for photographers and my clients range across all kinds of industries from restaurants, salons, lawyer offices, flower shops, car dealers, and any other kind of business you can think of so nearly every project involves me using a plugin I have never used let alone knew about. Even though I am passing along the cost to my end user I also need to be mindful of which plugins I use because I don’t want to recklessly add plugins all willy-nilly. Because I work with so many different customers their requirements are almost never the same and therefore I require such a vast array of plugins. As I said early on, there are so many plugins available for WordPress there are also a lot of premium plugins at our disposal. Often times I am experimenting with different plugins to see if they fit my requirements or don’t conflict with other plugins and break the site.

I applaud all of the developers who offer a free trial period for their product before committing to a purchase. THIS free trial is the correct way to go about offering WordPress plugins because it opens the door for so many more potential customers. Think about how many more sales could be made by giving customers an open look at your product.

What about the 30-day money back refunds? Often times you will find developers offering 30 day no questions asked refunds on their product. This might sound like a good option, and is one that should still be offered, but it is not a great option for a customer because I don’t want to go through the hassle of submitting payment information and then having to go through the troubles of requesting a refund. There’s no disputing a free trial period is a much better option than this. Depending on the payment processor, they will keep their transaction fees even if a refund is issued. If PayPal is being used they collect 2.9% + $0.30 cents from whatever the purchase price is so if a plugin costs $199 then PayPal collects $5.77 + $0.30. The customer will get his full $199 refunded but the developer has to eat $6.07 because PayPal is keeping the transaction fee from the original purchase.

We offer a free 7-day trial on our Pro plan because we want you to see for yourself exactly what you are getting and letting you decide if our product is right for you. A huge benefit to a service we provide is our customers get to try our product and thousands of other products we make available. Since I started using the GPL Plugin the number of plugins I have purchased has tripled, the amount of refunds I had to request are zero, and I feel like I have accumulated a solid set plugins I never would have otherwise purchased if I didn’t get to try them beforehand. The Oxygen Builder plugin is one example where I had to rush out and buy their unlimited license because I fell in love with it after using it and is now the ONLY page builder I recommend – I’m looking at you Elementor…

GPL Cellar Review: Is this plugin any good?

You might be wondering if the GPL Cellar plugin is any good and if it lives up to the hype. The short answer is YES.

What is GPL Cellar? is a WordPress plugin you install that allows you to browse thousands of premium WordPress themes and plugins. The plugin acts as a theme and plugin manager to install, download, activate, and update all of the popular plugins available for WordPress. You will only find items that are available for WordPress plugins and WordPress themes.

A lot of people are already using GPL Cellar on their websites. We find a lot of customers are agency or freelance web developers building websites on behalf of their client and they use this plugin on their development web site as a way to try out different plugins for their development needs. They also use the available themes to provide their clients with different demos using premium themes so they have a general idea of what their website will look like.

What are the advantages?

The advantage to using this plugin is you have a single payment that unlocks premium plugins and themes instead of having to go out and buy them individually on your own. The other advantage to this is the cost savings you will encounter using GPL Cellar.

  1. Single payment. No need to manage multiple subscriptions for each item.
  2. Huge cost savings. A single monthly plan is much cheaper than purchasing items directly.
  3. Try before you buy. You can easily try out plugins and themes before you buy.
  4. Simplicity. This plugin is easy to use.
  5. Fast. All products are served locally so there are no external API calls to view products.
  6. Keep items you download. Everything you download is yours forever. You just need an active subscription to get new updates.

Why is GPL Cellar better?

The service provided by this plugin is better than any other service out there for a variety reasons.

  1. The customer service is top notch. Customer support from similar services is slow, not helpful, or non-existent but with this provider your questions will be answered quickly. On an average weekday you can expect a reply within a few hours.
  2. Products are constantly getting updated. While other providers will boast about how they have the largest available plugins and themes you will find they don’t keep that collection up to date. With GPL Cellar there are dozens of plugins and themes updated daily so you will always find the latest versions of plugins.
  3. Browse and manage plugins inside of your WordPress install. GPL Cellar is better than other providers because you don’t have to go to a website to download your plugins, instead you can use their own plugin to browse the entire catalog and install or download directly.
  4. 30 day refunds, even though you wont need to ask for one.

How does it work?

As mentioned many times before, GPL Cellar is a plugin you install on WordPress just like you do with any other plugin. Anyone can download the plugin and install it and you do not need to have a valid license key to activate it. This is great because it allows anyone interested to take it for a test drive to see how it works. There are also about 30 free items you can download and install immediately. We are talking about premium themes and plugins too such as Elementor, WordFence, RankMath, Restrict Content, Ocean, and a bunch of WooCommerce plugins.

The plugin has two pages, Plugins, and Themes. Plugins is for viewing all of the available plugins and Themes is for viewing themes. Below is a screenshot.

screenshot of GPL Cellar Plugins

The above screenshot has been clipped to only show the first 5 plugins, but on the page there are 25 items beautifully displayed. The list is sorted by items last updated, but you can easily sort by plugin name. You can also search for items by entering text into the “Search” field and you can also filter items based on the category they are in. You will also find 3 tabs labeled “All”, “Installed”, and “Free” that will limit your listing to all items, items that are installed, and items that are free.

You can also see from the image there is a button to Install and Download for each item. The buttons do exactly as the name implies, Install will install the item into WordPress and while Download will download the item to your local hard drive. After you Install, the Install button goes away and and Activate button will appear allowing you to active the plugin. If the plugin is already installed a message is displayed next to the item as well as a message if the item needs updating.

The Themes page looks and works exactly like the plugins page.


In conclusion, I highly recommend giving the GPL Cellar plugin a try for yourself. I think you will be amazed by how beautiful the user interface is, how many popular items you will find, and how often updates are applied. The pricing plans to use this plugin are very competitive with other providers out there and you can also take advantage of the 7 day free trial. There’s also a 30 day money back refund policy if you are not satisfied with the plugin you can get your money back.
