I’ll copy and paste the statement in this page in case you missed it:
That being said, I’m afraid you need to include ACF free instead if you want to add it in your free theme. I think the reason is simple, if you include ACF PRO in your free theme, it means that your users or any other people can download your theme to get ACF PRO instead of buying it from the plugin author. That’s not what you want if you sell something, right?
I hope this makes sense 🙂
