Why is there an annual renewal fee?
Short answer: sustainability.
To actually be useful, a plugin must offer continued development, updates, and technical support.
It’s not financially viable to keep up with WordPress and WooCommerce constant updates without a steady flux of income.
Invoicing is a critical part of a business. It shouldn’t be entrusted to software without a continued and clear development path and updates, and that won’t provide proper technical support.
You’re not forced to renew your license. Your Pro plugin will keep working with all the features intact, but you won’t have access to updates or technical support, and it may break on a future WordPress or WooCommerce update.
