Most WordPress plugins and themes will offer yearly subscriptions to receive updates and support. I do understand the need for recurring and predictable revenue for companies to keep up with the development costs, but I prefer WordPress lifetime licenses. I’m a huge fan of lifetime deals (LTD), both for WordPress and SaaS, and I can’t say no to such an opportunity whenever it arises.
As I’m already hunting for lifetime deals for WordPress, I thought I may as well share my findings. I’m confident there are many other people who’d rather pay once for a lifetime license, instead of monthly or yearly subscriptions. Most of these deals are valid for a limited time only, so grab them while they’re available.
I won’t list any products from Codecanyon or Themeforest, as they always sold subscriptions with lifetime updates (but limited support).
Here are the best WordPress lifetime deals I could find and recommend:
|Header Footer Code Manager
|Easily add tracking snippets, conversion pixels, or other scripts required by third-party services for analytics, marketing, or chat features to your WordPress website.

Frequently asked questions
If you are new to the world of lifetime deals, you may want to check out the answers to the most common question I receive:
What is a WordPress lifetime license?
A “lifetime license” or “lifetime deal” in WordPress refers to the ability of a user to receive updates and support for the plugin or theme without ever having to pay again.
How long is “lifetime”?
It’s the lifetime of the products, not yours. Around 5% of the deals I bought ended up closing down after a few years. The vast majority survived and thrived. I still use lifetime deals I bought 5 years ago or more.
What if I don’t like the product or it doesn’t meet my needs?
All of the deals I listed have a 30 or 60 days money-back guarantee, no questions asked. The refund period varies based on the platform hosting the deal.
What lifetime deals are used on TricksPanda
I’m using many LTDs on TricksPanda and on my other wesbites. Some of them I bought long ago and are no longer available. Here’s a quick list of which ones I currently use:
- Ninja Tables Pro – for tables, such as the one above
- Fluent Forms Pro – for contact and opt-in forms
- Swift Performance Pro – for caching and website/database optimization. Sadly, you won’t find any lifetime deal for this plugin anymore.
- ASTRA Security – for security, firewall, malware-scans. Fantastic product, but not offered as LTD anymore.
- Optinly – for more advanced popups for lead generation, A/B testing, etc.
- ShortPixel Image Optimizer – to compress and optimize the images on my website.
- IMGHaste – as a CDN, to serve scaled and optimized images, CSS and JS
- WPvivid Backup & Migration – the backup plugin that has never failed me, not even on large websites
