“Better” is always a subjective term, but I’d recommend sticking with EDD (with some exceptions, which I’ll cover later).
As for the price, I try not to consider it merely a “price increase.” To me, it’s an adjustment closer to where the price should have been in the first place.
If you plan on selling other things like event tickets, appointment bookings, memberships, you may want to consider WooCommerce as a more flexible all-in-one choice.
But for selling WordPress themes and plugins, EDD is almost always a safe bet.
The general consensus from other theme/plugin sellers I’ve talked to is that EDD’s software licensing is far superior to the WooCommerce equivalent. I use it myself and would highly recommend it.
I can’t speak to the WooCommerce licensing plugin because I have not used it before.
