Please tell me, if I am a developer who develops websites using gsap, do I need a business license? I'm confused)

Hi @Bus1n and welcome to the GreenSock forums!


First thanks for being a Club GreenSock member and supporting GreenSock!


If you answer "yes" to any of the following, you'd need the special commercial license that comes with "Business Green" Club GreenSock memberships: 

  • Does your GSAP-enhanced website/game/product require the user to pay a fee to use? (like netflix.com)
  • Are you selling a GSAP-enhanced product to multiple end users? (like a website template, theme or game)
  • Are you using GSAP in a game/app with optional paid features/upgrades?

If your website sells products that aren't GSAP-enhanced like clothing, widgets, food, etc., that doesn't require the commercial license. It only matters if the thing for which a fee is collected uses GSAP in some way. The standard "no charge" license even covers usage in projects where only a one-time development fee is charged, like an agency that's paid to build a fancy web site that's free for everyone to use.

We like to think that a Club membership pays for itself very quickly when you consider all the time it’ll save, the added capabilities that the bonus plugins deliver...and of course that sense of having animation superpowers is priceless 🙂

Club memberships support all the ongoing development here as well, so it can be a smart way for you to help ensure that the tools continue to get nurtured in the years ahead just like they have been for the past 15+ years.

Let us know if we can help with anything else. We look forward to seeing you on the membership roster soon. 


Hopefully this helps. If you have any other question regarding this subject let us know.

Happy Tweening!
