WHMCS kills lifetime licenses (sort of)
It seems that WHMCS has made some changes to the lifetime licenses so this is part PSA and part FYI.
- You can no longer transfer lifetimes, they are account locked now, they are intended for use by the current owner only.
This means any lifetime license sales are now not legitimate, WHMCS do not sell them any more and will no longer allow a transfer.
It is also possible that account takeovers if detected will result in termination of the license i.e. you take over the entire WHMCS account to gain access to the license.
Do not buy any lifetimes.
- They no longer allow anyone with a lifetime license to subscribe to the support or updates 1-year renewals.
This effectively makes owning a lifetime license useless and version locked essentially forcing people onto the monthly subscription path to get support and updates.
tl;dr WHMCS lifetimes just died and are technically no longer lifetime licenses.
