The basic principle is : if you developed it, then it is your code, and 
it is your decision what you do with it and how you sell it.
But do not forget that, more than the code itself, it is generally the 
quality of the service that you provide to your customers that will matter.

But I have another suggestion for you : you indicated this product that 
would allow to encrypt your code, and mentioned that it was expensive.
OK. Now, presumably, these people know why they developed it, and why 
they charge the price that they do.  Why do you not contact them, 
explain your situation, and ask them to explain why you should pay that 
price for their product ?
They must have arguments, and maybe they will convince you.  Or maybe 
they will offer you a discount.
