About

Our free service empowers WordPress users by offering admin access to WordPress products for 10-day TestDrives. We give people the ability try WordPress themes and plugins IN FULL, BEFORE they buy. WordPress users come to us to ensure they’re selecting the right WordPress product.

Our service was born out of frustration. When choosing a WordPress product, there’s a moment in your selection process where you believe that you’ve made the right decision. The premium theme you’ve chosen LOOKS great and seems to have the functionality you’re after… but having to buy the theme before seeing how it PERFORMS is a risk we believe you shouldn’t have to take. Occasionally, when a TestDrive option does exist, it’s shared with dozens of other users. Not exactly a real-world experience.

How We Help

If you’re reading this, it’s likely you’ve felt let down when a theme or plugin didn’t work the way you thought it would. wpTestDrive solves a problem we’ve experienced ourselves.

We believe our service empowers the WordPress community. Full 10-day access to WordPress themes and plugins enables thorough evaluation of products, reduces stress, removes risk, saves time and allows WordPress users to make informed buying decisions.

Our Users Are Often:

  • Frustrated that most WordPress developers don’t offer full access to their products before purchase
  • Unsure if they’re making the right theme or plugin choice
  • Unsatisfied with the lack of insight provided by WordPress Previews or “Demos”
  • Stressed that they may be wasting their money and their time on the wrong WordPress products
  • Upset because a WordPress product they purchased didn’t perform as expected
  • Uncomfortable or unwilling to email developers lists of questions regarding what the theme/plugin can and can’t do
