I was wondering if a script on Code Canyon required a CRON Job, whether this would put buyers off?

So far, I’ve had two decent ideas for scripts, but they both needed a CRON job to function properly, so I’ve put them on hold. But recently I’ve realized that they are pretty damn good ideas, and would prove really useful to anyone who buys it.

Obviously, CRON jobs that are required in my script because there is no other way to get accurate data, and without accurate data the script would be useless.

So, my question is would a script that required a CRON job put you off buying a script?

Ofcourse not.., If the script is really good CRON jobs wont affect it.., (though problems will occur if the script is used on localhost)

Anyways now a days there are many websites which provide CRON jobs solution pretty easily and for free so it shouldn’t bother anyone.

Excellent. That’s the answer I was hoping for.

Thank you
