Is it not completely obvious, given that the site where you actually buy the "theme" from displayed with EVERY theme they list?

They presumably make their money from advertising - although it might not be obvious. But just clicking on one of the themes generated two pop-under ads: one for an airport car service, and one that I didn't bother to glance at.

 

Whether that's an effective way of making money is another matter. Personally, I rarely look at pop-up or pop-under ads, but presumably there are enough people who respond to them to generate an income for the host sites.

And they may have an affiliate arrangement to market at least some of those themes. That means the site that actually sells the theme rebates a portion of the theme's purchase price to the listing site for every buyer the listing site refers to the selling site.

Based on your forum user name, .... They do the same as you probably are, only with CMS themes instead of hotel bookings.

Thank for your help! I am still wondering about a problem. Is that illegal when sharing the wordpress premium themes for example meanwhile themeforest (dot)net is selling those themes? Theme Designer might sue buzztheme.net or not? It the answer is yes, why buzztheme (dot) net is still exist?

Would it be 'legal' for you to advertise and sell  hotel rooms in Hanoi that you do not own?

If they have an affiliate agreement, not only is it legal, it's the only way for such an agreement to work.

 

Buzztheme advertises the themes to bring in traffic. Buzztheme then sends those customers to ThemeForest, where the customers complete the purchase. ThemeForest probably has similar agreements with dozens, perhaps hundreds, of other theme directories. Each directory sends customers to ThemeForest. ThemeForest then rebates a small portion of each sale back to the theme directory that sent that customer to ThemeForest in the first place.

 

ThemeForest makes more sales as a result of these theme directories sending customers to them. Buzztheme (and all the other similar directories) make money without having to process credit card sales or host theme files for download themselves. Both gain. Why would either of them be upset or angry over this?

 

This is a very common arrangement on the web.
