Don't worry :) Here is a comparison table between their features:

Is also worth noting few things :

  • You can easily cancel the yearly subscription immediately after purchase if is not something you wanna have, if you stop paying after 1 year you won't have support&updates, the theme will continue to work, you paid for the theme and is yours :)

  • The current price for upgrading is $89 and you get access to all our products ( themes and plugins ), we know that you might have only just 1 site, but we can assure you the deal is worth even for that, you get the peace of mind that if a new version of WordPress is released or something broke, we have your back, support time currently for paid users is in average 4 hours.
