Templates for Startup

Hey Bubble Forum!

My company is on the way to building our prototype, but we want to make sure we’re following the marketplace guidelines.

Are we allowed to purchase a template, modify/configure it to our company’s product and release it as our prototype?

Thank you,


Hi, welcome to the forum!

In my understanding, as long as it’s for you and not for a client, yes. That’s what they’re for.

Hi @versaup,

Welcome to Bubble, I had this question a good while a go when I first started on Bubble I messaged the legal team and this is the response I got, hopefully it will provide some clarification.

Thanks for reaching out! In accordance with our terms, specifically, Sections 6h and 2b, you may not “rent, lease, share, distribute, or sell [the template you purchased] to any third party…”

Please let us know if you have any questions.

Poorly defined IMO.

If you build an app with a template, and then charge third parties to use that app… is that covered ?

Or if you build an app for a client that uses a template as a base ?

Or is it just selling the template to a third party ?

I hereby give you permission to modify and configure my templates as your own prototype outside of Bubble :ballot_box_with_check: :stuck_out_tongue:

This means you can’t re-sell the same template on the Bubble marketplace, outside of this scope I don’t mind whatever you’re planning to do. You can check my templates below.


That’s kind. But my contract is not with you :slight_smile:

Agreed, it could be better explained.

I was merely being sarcastic, hopefully this will be clear soon.

There are points I don’t like as a template user. First of all, I think the option should be given for commercial purposes. In addition, it may be 20-30% more expensive and / or not allowed to reuse.
