Group Buys (beta)
Several new states have been introduced into the life cycle of releases:
- Release is up to date (default state of a release).
- Release is pending update (a request for update has been received and a counter starts at -2 days).
- Release is available to group buy (if the item hasn’t been updated in two days after an update request the item will be automatically available for group buy).
- Release has group buy active (users with enough credits can start/join a group buy, the current cost is displayed).
- Release has group buy ended (only gplcanyon and the group buy starter can end a group buy).
Group buys can be started by gpl sites, developers and suppliers if they have enough group buy credits.
Group buy credits can be earned automatically at each renewal or by supplying serial keys for requested releases (1 group buy point for every version change). Suppliers cannot request an update for their own releases. We can reuse serial keys even if they’re already registered for a domain but we’ll need the domain name.
If the initial cost of an item is 100 credits, the starter will consume 100 credits to make the group buy active, next user who joins will spend 50 credits, next one – 33, the fourth will spend 25 credits – when the group buy is ended a final cost is calculated (initial cost divided by the number of users who joined the group buy – 25 credits) and a settlement will take place: first user receives back 75 credits, the second one 25 and the third one 8.
A the end of a group buy gplcanyon will purchase that item and provide the file/s.

– we ‘ve applied a security patch where an unauthenticated user could’ve taken advantage of a recently generated download link.
The version numbers are now clickable in single post view, clicking on it will trigger a notice that the release is out of date. Marking a release out of date when it’s not will remove the ability to mark other releases (for developer accounts – until the next billing cycle).
Developers meet the FileKeeper. As you know we always wanted to offer an unlimited downloads plan for genuine developers but that goal was hard to achieve with so many gpl site owners taking our releases and sell them as their own. FK is an automated solution that will look at what you mark as “old”, what you search for, what you download, when you download and how much you download (and other metrics) and if it detects an unnatural behavior it will turn your user account icon orange as a warning.
A top gpl site who wished not to be named has joined GPL CANYON. Along with new, innovative services we’ll soon provide even more releases. Support response rate will be slower until new users will be ported into our system.
The repository page has been compacted and an advanced filtering system is available for donors. Experimental check for update has been introduced for some “Developers” meaning that for an ever expanding pool of items clicking the “old” button will automatically compare on site version with the official one.
May 1 will mark our second birthday and we’ll celebrate it by hosting the first edition of “GPL DAY”, a tribute to the users who can’t afford to pay a monthly fee but helped us a lot when we started. Friday, May 1 from 00:00 to 23:59 PST all releases will be available for free, no account needed.
- Elementor be gone (although GPL Canyon was one of the most sophisticated site ever created with Elementor, adding features after features made it slow, so we took a step forward and got rid of it) – visuals will be remade using only html.
- Former “Visitor” (free) items don’t require an account anymore.
- This update was made with speed and usability in mind but if you have any questions or suggestions please contact us via support.
