Sell plugins/themes individually

Hi,

Is there a plugin that will let me sell plugins and themes individually like wordpress.com does?

Thanks

    In terms of WPMU plugins you could use the Pay Per View plugin or possibly even the Membership plugin depending on how you want the website the function.

    Once a customer signs up, they get access to the page(s) that they can download the theme or plugin on. For example you could force them to subscribe to get future updates, include future updates or other alternatives.

    Just be sure to set it up in a way that’s passive for you so it isn’t a customer service nightmare. WPMU DEV has a great model if you don’t want to reinvent the wheel. Hope this helps.

    Hi @peter_egerton

    Either option suggested by @gabe would work. But, as he mentions, it all depends on the type of access you wish your users to have.

    For example, here on WPMUdev, we have Membership subscription plans that afford full access to everything on the site for 1, 3 or 12 months. Individual plugin/theme sales also come with a 1 month subscription to upgrades/support access. What that means is, as we have hundreds of individual products, we have hundreds of subscription plans… we also have multiple databases to handle all that stuff :slight_smile:

    Sorry i think ive been to vague here but thanks for your helpful responses.

    What im actually trying to do is charge for access to the plugin in the wp-admin, once someone purchases the plugin/theme they can then activate/deactivate at will.

    In the subdomain store wordpress allows users to purchase/subscribe to plugins/themes, this just allows them to use the plugins/themes in wp-admin.

    They can also purchase these from within wp-admin shown below.

Thank NAME, for their help.

Let NAME know exactly why they deserved these points.
