    I'm just curious, obviously we cannot sell our licenses more than once but are we allowed to give the account to someone else?

    As is no transactions of money between the two parties purely just giving them my account?

    According to the XenForo License Agreement, a license can only be transferred once:

    So no, it can't be passed on a second time, whether or not money is involved.

    Regarding your XenForo customer account (which is independent of your license), you cannot give that to anyone.

    You can't give away your account though it can't hurt to create a ticket and ask if XF can make an exception and allow you to transfer the license. The worst case would be a no after all :).

    If they do say no then that'll be no, you wouldn't be able to give away your license nor sell it.

    Seems there's an opportunity for XF here. If additional transfers were billed at say $10 you'd benefit from transfer fees as well as renewal fees along with more active licenses = greater market share. Don't really care either way, just an observation.

    It's an excellent observation.

    Transfer fees are not always a good idea, I have more than 3 vbulletin licenses that I won't use, and I can't sell, because IB made it too hard selling a license for EU residents. they are eligible for transfer they said, but I have to pay about 50$ for each transfer.. ( I don't remember the exact amount).. , So I decided not to sell them.. and not to use them.

    As mentioned above, you have nothing to lose by asking. Although, I can't see the staff allowing this because it would just be like opening Pandora's box, so to speak.

    I'll take the license if XF is willing to give it to me :)

    How does XF know that you're not making any monetary value off of a licence transfer? All XF know is that you've initiated a transfer request I don't recall them brokering the deal... Unless I'm missing something?

    Thanks, I was just wondering in case I ever decided to throw in the towel
