    This plugin only works with a paid service, so why have it here at all?

    Makes no sense, other than to 100% advertise a paid external service

    Hi nippi9,

    “Serviceware” plugins are allowed in the WordPress plugin repository. According to the WordPress Plugin Guidelines:

    “Serviceware” plugins are defined as plugins that merely act as an interface to some external third party service (eg. a video hosting site). Serviceware plugins ARE allowed in the repository, as long as the code in the plugin meets all other conditions. These are allowed even for pay services, as long as the service itself is doing something of substance.

    Our plugin is 100% compatible with the GNU General Public License.

    We are up front about requiring a paid membership to our service on the Installation page as well as on the main plugin page under the Requirements heading.

    If you have any questions about our plugins, please don’t hesitate to ask.
