Hi,

I have 7 plugins for WooCommerce ready to go – all professionally written clean class-based code.

How do you determine pricing for such plugins?

My concern is that when I look at the current eCom plugins here on Code Canyon I find that the most expensive is only $20 and others are just $10. So an author making 50% gets $5 to $10 on that particular pricing. I’d have to sell a boatload to break even on my time investment.

I know I can sell my plugins on my own for anywhere from $35 to $50 each and probably sell at least a few hundred copies of each one without any trouble at all.

Thus my question.

Ecwid which has just hit it big with over $1.5 million dollars investors and over 150,000 users – growing strong.

Ecwid is a hosted service. How does this pertain to ecom plugins?

When doing your calculations, being in the mindset that you’re making half of what you would selling on your own is the completely wrong way to go about it. CodeCanyon is a marketplace which gives your plugin unparalleled exposure. Your advertising costs would be unbelievable if you tried to match it going on your own.

Did you happen to review the total sales counts for eCom plugins at Code Canyon? Only one plugin has anything close to significant sales. Thus my original question.

I dare say once the category fills up they will dump some money on advertising this particular category. I’ve seen this happen with other new categories. Once there are some good plugins the traffic and sales will grow exponentially.

You are more than welcome to sell your plugins on CodeCanyon and your own website if you are still uncomfortable. You can then quite easilly gauge which website gets the most sales. You can sell on both sites by opting-out of Exclusive Author from your settings page.

So what are you waiting for – get uploading! :)

Thanks,

Yep, Envato doesn’t poor out money on categories that are not expected to do well / improve greatly.

I’ve just submitted mine :)
