A lot of us coders aren’t designers. In fact sometimes I have a friend design my previews because I’m just so bad at it :D So I would consider using one of these templates in place of your current 590×300 previews:

I’d also consider improving the descriptions a bit. Here’s an example I made using Envatitor

Here’s the markup for that example in case you want to use it:

We all start somewhere so just keep trying to improve and keep your spirits high! :)

I’m also struggling with sales (maybe too much high expectations) and actually considering releasing my plugins free at wp.org and charge for support instead. What do you all think about that?

Don’t worry, it’s taking time for sales to grow. First of all try to make attractive screenshots, that’s really important. Maybe (and surely!) your items provide great features, you know it, but what about buyers? They have to see in seconds that your items are the right product, the product they need. That’s why creating attractive pictures is important.

The more details you give, the more sales you’ll get.

Also, try to promote yourself as if you were promoting a company: use a corporate visual identity.

And keep working !
