I’ve got a question about a tutorial. Where’s the best place to get an answer?

We regularly add more courses, so if we don’t have quite what you’re looking for, sign up to receive email news, suggest or vote on course topics, and check back soon!

How do I purchase courses?

You can subscribe to Envato Elements to get access to Envato Tuts+ courses, eBooks, and unlimited downloads on Envato Elements. You can purchase subscriptions using a credit card or PayPal.

Check out our pricing page for more information, or visit the overview of the course you want and click the 'Subscribe to watch full course' button to start the payment process.

We no longer offer individual course purchases or different monthly and yearly plans on Envato Tuts+.

Once I’ve paid for a subscription, how do I start learning?

If you’ve subscribed to get access to a wide range of Envato Tuts+ courses and eBooks, take your pick by browsing through our library.

If you’ve purchased courses individually, follow these steps:

  • Sign in to your Envato Tuts+ account.
  • Click the icon at the top right of the page, and select "My Courses" from the options that appear.
  • Browse the My Courses page to access all the courses you’ve purchased (as well as free courses you’ve started watching).

Where do I find courses I’ve started watching previously?

Your My Courses page displays all the courses you’ve watched, so you can find them quickly and keep on learning!

How many times can I watch a course that I’ve purchased?

There is no limit to how many times you can watch your courses. If you’ve purchased an individual course, you’ll have unlimited access to it (unless we need to remove it from Envato Tuts+ for some reason—more on that below). If you have a subscription, you’ll be able to watch the course as many times as you want, for the duration of your subscription.

Do the courses expire?

Courses do not have an expiration date. We try to provide you with long term access to your purchased courses. They’ll usually be available for at least 12 months—probably much longer. However, we can remove purchased courses at our discretion, for example if they become out of date or obsolete, or if we need to for legal or commercial reasons. We will take reasonable steps to give you notice if we are removing a course.

Can I download the course and watch it offline?

Yes, you can download individual lesson videos for any course that you have purchased, or for any course in our library if you are subscribed to the Yearly or Yearly Pro plans. Subscribers to Envato Elements or the Monthly plan are not able to download videos. Fair use policies also apply.

Can I download project files for a course?

Yes, if you have access to a course (via purchase or any subscription plan), then you can download the relevant project source files.

What are the Terms of Use for Envato Tuts+ Courses?

Our Terms of Use for Envato Tuts+ subscriptions cover the contract you enter with us when you use Envato Tuts+. Our Privacy Policy explains how we use any information about you that you provide to us.


How do eBook credits work?

Envato Elements Subscriptions and our old Envato Tuts+ Yearly Subscriptions include credits to download up to 5 eBooks per month. Downloaded titles are added to My eBooks and the same eBook can be downloaded multiple times in multiple formats within the same calendar month and count as only one download. If the same eBook is downloaded again in a future calendar month it will count as a new download. Using the Read Online feature for eBooks doesn't use eBook credits.


What are your payment plans and options?

You can subscribe to Envato Elements to get access to Envato Tuts+ courses, eBooks, and unlimited downloads on Envato Elements. You can purchase subscriptions using a credit card or PayPal. See our pricing page for more information.

Can I try before I buy?

The first two videos of every course are available to preview for free, via the course overview page. Check out the unlocked videos to learn about the course, its subject matter and educational style. You’ll get a good feel for the instructor and what they’re here to teach.

Can I cancel my subscription?

Sure! If you'd rather not extend your subscription, go to the Subscription section of your account dashboard, and select 'Cancel Subscription'. You'll still have access to our courses and eBooks until your current subscription period runs out.

If you subscribed before the 13th of May, 2014 (via the Envato Tuts+ Premium website) the process is a little different. In this case, subscription cancellation is handled through your payment provider.


  1. Log in to your PayPal account
  2. Click “Profile” at the end of the gray menu bar above your account information
  3. Click “My money”
  4. Click “Update” in the “My preapproved payments” section
  5. Click “Cancel”, “Cancel automatic billing”, or “Cancel subscription” on the item you want to cancel and follow the instructions.

Click ‘Sign In’ in the top right corner of this website. Next to the email and password field is a ‘Forgot Password’ link. Enter the email address that you used to sign up and a password reset link will be emailed to you.

I had an Envato Tuts+ Premium account. How do I use it to sign in now?

Are my Envato Tuts+ transactions secure?

Our service merchant provider is PCI-DSS Level 1 compliant. Security is a top priority for them and for Envato Tuts+. We've made sure to select a provider that meets and exceeds all industry-standard payment security practices to protect you.

Why do you ask for my country of residence?

From early 2015, Envato Tuts+ is collecting EU Value Added Tax (VAT) from EU non-business buyers, in accordance with changes to the EU VAT telecommunications, broadcasting and electronic service rules (see official announcement). This requires that we record is your correct country of residence for tax and legal purposes. Following confirmation of country of residence, EU-based users will have the option to provide their EU VAT number.

EU buyers who provide a valid EU VAT number as well as buyers who confirm their country is not located in the EU will not be charged VAT on Envato Tuts+ purchases.

You can confirm or update your country of residence and enter your EU VAT number (if applicable) on by clicking Billing Info on your Subscription page.


What should I do if something isn’t working?

If you notice that something isn’t working as it should be, we’d like to fix it. Contact our support team so we can work on resolving the issue.
