Yes you are allowed to customize it and sell it on Google Play if you purchased the extended license.

Looking forward to next commission rate (53%). Not a big jump but these small steps add up eventually (I hope).

Can anyone explain something

iv got my repo setup at v1.0 of my plugin, if i want to start work on 1.0.1 how the heck do i do that or do i need to create a new repo?

iv googled it and i think i have my terminology wrong so no luck :(

You need to create a branch. Take a look at Git Flow pattern. It’s a great way to manage your workflow.

I highly recommend BitBucket. I also use SourceTree as my desktop GIT client. I like it because it has Git Flow button built in.

I still use GitHub for open source stuff and code snippets (gist).

^ paypal only takes 2.9% per transaction, and they have a free tool to send invoices – quite easy actually. Also, we can already promote custom work on our item pages so definitely not worth the 30% cut they take…

I agree PayPal is the obvious choice but Envato can do much more if they customize the experience and streamline the process. Much like Apple does for in-app purchases. Sure it makes sense to use PayPal but the ease of purchase Apple offers is hard to ignore.

I think the best way to promote Microlancer in the marketplace is to allow authors to promote custom work through Microlancer on their item pages.

This would keep the promotion in context and give authors a tool to offer freelance work without managing the billing process (which I don’t think is worth 30% btw).

thoughts?

YES!!! Thank You!

We are not a big seller in the marketplace but we do enjoy the extra income we get. But because of the support we provide that income is actually not worth much because of the time we spend helping customers and improving our items. When we spend 3-4hrs helping some one and they turn around and give us a 1-3 star rating because we didn’t do exactly what then wanted for free… it makes us think twice about selling here.

This is a step in the right direction to help us tackle some of these issues. It’s not perfect but I’ll take it.
