Frequently asked questions
What page builders is Crocoblock compatible with?
We are fully compatible with the Elementor page builder. As to the default WordPress page builder, also known as Gutenberg, it supports Crocoblock plugins.
Do I need Elementor to work with Crocoblock?
You can use JetPlugins with Elementor Page Builder, and some JetPlugins are already compatible with Gutenberg editor.
Do I need Elementor Pro to work with Crocoblock?
No, you do not require Elementor Pro to work with our plugins.
What themes are compatible with Crocoblock?
There are six themes officially tested by Crocoblock. Kava is a light and clean theme, designed to work perfectly with JetPlugins. You may want to install the Child Kava theme from our Crocoblock Wizard, which can be found in your Crocoblock account. Also, Crocoblock is compatible with Elementor Hello Theme, OceanWP, Astra, Blocksy, and GeneratePress.
Does Crocoblock have plugins for Gutenberg?
I am a web developer who creates websites for clients. Can I use Crocoblock?
Absolutely. Though, we highly recommend using subkeys for your clients’ projects. For security purposes, one subkey works for a single domain only. Please, keep in mind that subkeys don’t work with the Crocoblock Wizard.
Is Crocoblock GPL-compatible?
Crocoblock’s initial code is GPL-compatible and, therefore, completely eligible for public use. Supplementary services (such as plugin updates, client support, etc.) are included in the Crocoblock subscription and are implemented on a commercial basis. This means the users can’t resell the Crocoblock license as it contains additional services provided by our company, and that does not align with GPL rules.
What are the technical requirements needed to use Crocoblock?
Please make sure to meet all the requirements listed below in order for Crocoblock products to work smoothly:
- PHP 7.3 or higher;
- MySQL 5.6 or higher;
- WP memory limit of 512 MB or higher;
- SSL certificate on the server;
- TLS protocol versions: 1.0, 1.1 , 1.2 , or 1.3.
Also, you might want to check if your hosting provider is compliant with all the needed requirements for your project.
Do you have a free trial?
No, we don’t. But we are glad to offer a 30-day money-back guarantee in case you are not completely satisfied with our products.
Subscription and License
Which subscription types does Crocoblock offer?
Crocoblock offers two major types of subscriptions – Yearly and Lifetime. The Yearly subscription type embraces the following ones:
- A Single Plugin subscription (for One or Unlimited number of websites). You are free to purchase any one plugin you need. Although, bear in mind that it’s still a subscription package, which needs to be renewed in a year.
- A Custom subscription. It will be perfect if you seek to assemble your own set of plugins. Add the desired plugins to the cart, decide on the number of projects (One website or Unlimited), and pay for relevant products at the checkout. Please mind, that separate plugins can not be renewed, while this type of subscription would be renewed as a whole unit.
- The All-Inclusive Yearly subscription (for One or Unlimited websites). It gives access to all JetPlugins and pre-made templates for one year. This set is perfect for building a content-rich website with a complex structure.
All the plans represented above come with a free Kava theme, premium support, and timely product updates.
The All-Inclusive Lifetime subscription grants you unlimited access to all Crocoblock products and updates, pre-made templates, and customer support forever and lets you build as many websites as you want at a fixed one-off payment.
How do I upgrade my subscription to All-Inclusive Yearly or All-Inclusive Lifetime?
You can always upgrade to All-Inclusive Yearly or All-Inclusive Lifetime here: https://crocoblock.com/upgrade/. Pick the preferred pricing plan and press the “Update” button. Thus, only the difference between two plans would be charged.
If you have a Single Plugin subscription, go to your Crocoblock account page. There, you will see the pricing plan you have chosen in the Upgrade License section. Click the “Upgrade” button to proceed to the Checkout page. Here you can choose the preferred payment method and perform your update successfully.
If you have a Custom Crocoblock subscription, you can upgrade to All-Inclusive Yearly and Lifetime in both the Crocoblock account and Crocoblock Dashboard in the WP admin panel. The procedure is the same as above.
Please note that the upgrade does not mean your subscription will be prolonged. Let’s assume you purchased a plan on March, 25th 2020 Two days before its expiration, on March, 23d 2021, you upgraded the membership. Does that mean that your license is extended for another year? No, an upgrade is not a renewal; even then, you will have to pay a fixed yearly amount to prolong your subscription.
How to upgrade my package from One website to Unlimited?
If you have a Custom Crocoblock subscription, you can upgrade to All-Inclusive Yearly and Lifetime. It can be done in either your Crocoblock account or Crocoblock Dashboard in the WP admin panel. If you have a subscription for One website (Custom) but want to upgrade to Unlimited, please contact Crocoblock support.
How to extend a subscription for another year?
The renewal process is fairly easy and does not take long. If your license key is still active and there is enough money on a bank card attached to your Crocoblock account, the renewal will be automatic. Otherwise, you may need to renew manually. Please complete the following steps:
- Go to your Crocoblock account and log into it.
- Find Crocoblock Membership in the Purchase Details section.
- In the License block, press the “Renew License” link.
- Fill in the checkout form that you are redirected to.
Read the full membership renewal guide if any questions arise.
What happens if I will NOT renew my subscription?
If you choose not to renew your subscription, it will remain operative till it expires. After the license expires, the website(s) built with Crocoblock products will keep working. However, it will be impossible to get the updates, use the template library, or access the Downloads directory in your Crocoblock account. We highly recommend you download and save the latest plugin versions prior to license expiration and make no changes to the developed website(s) afterward.
Kindly mind that we do not provide official support to customers whose license is out of date. They can no longer qualify for Zoom calls and help from the Crocoblock support team.
What should I do if my license expires soon, and I intend to keep using Crocoblock?
Make sure there is enough money on your credit card in order for the system to charge you and extend the subscription. If there is no money on the credit card, the automatic license renewal will fail. In this case, you are supposed to renew the license manually. Another option is to cancel the existing subscription, purchase the new one, and use it instead.
Can the subscription be canceled?
Yes, the subscription can be canceled from your personal Crocoblock account. In this case, no more recurrent charges will be made. Still, you will be entitled to receiving customer support services and plugin updates for as long as your license key remains active.
Can I get a complete invoice with the VAT itemized for the Lifetime license?
Since our Head Office is located in the USA we do have a TAX ID: 42-1774657 (or EIN – employer’s identification number). This is not a European VAT number, therefore you can not confirm it on the site of income revenue authority.
How do I qualify for a 30-day refund?
If you are not satisfied with any of the Crocoblock products, you can ask for a refund during the first 30 days from the date of purchase. Refunds are carried out regardless of the purchase amount and total price. To qualify for a refund, please submit a refund request from your personal Crocoblock account. Bear in mind that we do not repay the service fee you have been charged by your bank when making a purchase. Also, if you buy two or more Crocoblock plugins within a Custom subscription, we are unable to repay just one of them. The entire subscription cost will be refunded.
I bought a Crocoblock subscription at a discount. Can I expect it to be renewed at a reduced price?
Renewals are always made at the price, which was effective at the time of the purchase. This means that you will be charged a fixed amount (let’s say, $79) on a yearly basis until you choose to cancel the subscription. If you wish to renew after canceling, you can still expect the same yearly price as before ($79). However, any and all discounts applied at the initial purchase are deemed a one-time privilege and will not count for future renewals.
How to update the products included in the Crocoblock subscription?
As long as the subscription license is active, you get all the newly-released plugin add-ons, plugin updates, and other product updates included in your subscription plan. The updates are received via Crocoblock Dashboard in your WordPress admin panel. To update the plugins, you should have an active license key. Moreover, you can download the updated plugin version from your Crocoblock account.
Does the license key activation on a local server qualify as an installation?
It certainly does. If you have got a license key for One website and activated it on your local server, this license key is deemed operative and cannot be reused elsewhere.
How many websites can I create using one Unlimited license?
This license type allows you to create an unlimited number of websites within a specified timeframe. However, if we happen to detect any suspicious activity on your account like a huge number of newly-created websites, we retain the right to cancel your subscription. There is nothing to worry about if you do not resell the license. Prior to cancellation, we may want to request a list of domains where the license key was used. In case you need to grant access to any websites of yours, make sure to use subkeys. This is a way to protect your license from being stolen and avoid unwanted attention to your account.
How to transfer a Crocoblock-based website to the client and protect the license key?
For security purposes, you ought to use a subkey. If your license allows activations on multiple websites, we highly recommend using only subkeys for your clients’ projects. A subkey is specifically generated to work with one domain only. However, you might want to acknowledge that subkeys don’t work with the Crocoblock Wizard..
Does the license allow reselling the items from the subscription?
Crocoblock owns distributed GPL-compatible code and commercial-based services included in the product subscription. This means that any WordPress user can work with the initial plugins’ code freely, but they are not eligible to resell the Crocoblock license as it contains supplementary services provided by our company.
Can I use the license to create my own commercial products?
No, it is strictly prohibited to use the Crocoblock plugins in any way that causes any direct or indirect – incidental and consequential – damages to the Crocoblock brand itself and Crocoblock users.
Nevertheless, we are always open to new cooperation opportunities provided that such partnership does not breach any of our policies. If you look forward to cooperating with us, please contact our marketing team at [email protected]. We shall address all questions and figure out a mutually beneficial agreement.
How can I get JetFormBuilder PRO Addons if I have Crocoblock?
JetFormBuilder PRO Addons are available via 100% discount for the Crocoblock customers with the All-Inclusive Yearly (for One or Unlimited websites) and Lifetime subscriptions.
I received a request to send a copy of my passport/ a driver's license or credit/debit card. Is it legal?
Yes, even if the credit card was accepted by the merchant system we keep the right for our own anti-fraud verification. In all cases of fraudulent activity online it is always the vendor who suffers the loss.
Why do I have to undergo anti-fraud verification?
Although the overwhelming majority of our customers are genuinely honest, there are cases of unauthorized credit card usage. Therefore, all of our orders are subject to a manual anti-fraud check. This verification procedure is aimed at enabling secure shopping for all of our customers. The usual order confirmation procedure will last no more than 15 minutes and does involve phone verification. Hence, every customer is required to provide a contact phone number for verification purposes. Also, under some circumstances, the billing representative does have the right to postpone the order until further verification is received.
Why do I need to verify my order?
The verification procedure is aimed at enabling secure shopping for all of our customers. The usual order confirmation procedure will last no more than 15 minutes. If you have any difficulties with verification, you can contact our Billing Department via email at [email protected]

Please keep in mind that if you purchase the Crocoblock subscription in any other currency than USD, we do not repay the concurrent difference in exchange rates.

How and where can I cancel my subscription?

Do you have the roadmap? How do GitHub and bug fixes work?
The development team has various internal tasks, agreed upon and brainstormed within the team. This is how our roadmap is built. Additionally, we include time for bug fixes related to WordPress and third-parties updates, or code defects. Working time is distributed like so: approximately 70% takes ongoing tasks and 30% bug fixes. If the tasks and bug fixes are fulfilled earlier, the team can add GitHub requests to the roadmap.
What should I do if plugin functionality is not working?
If you find some functionality is not working as expected, go to the support team and share your issue. If your request is a bug, our team will fix this as soon as possible. If this is a new feature request, feel free to leave it on GitHub and our development team will have a look when we finish current development tasks and prepare everything for a new one.
What do GitHub labels mean?
Usually, our developers look through all requests and attach the appropriate label. If the request has no label or comment, that could mean it’s not popular at this time, or the developer hasn’t viewed it yet. No need to ask the support team about the status of your request, this doesn’t speed up the review and implementation process. The label doesn’t guarantee that a particular request is in work. Each request will be viewed and/or implemented in order of priority/popularity.
