In order to submit a new file to the Php Scripts marketplace. I wonder if the next two scenarios would be appropriate and will match the CodeCanyon requirements:
SCENARIO 1: File + service. Item contains an incomplete Php file, that needs extra developing to work: integration with the website. Item also contains an Integration service: an external developer will develop the needed integration.
SCENARIO 2: Only file. Item contains an incomplete Php file, that needs extra developing to work: integration with the website. Buyer must develop the integration by his own, following included documentation.
On both scenarios, the buyer ends with a fully functional script. What are your thoughts ?
how can it be fully functional with incomplete files
In Scenario1: The included Integration service completes the file.
In Scenario2: Buyer completes the file. Of course, in this scenario the item should be much cheaper.
Is this something you would offer support on when people are trying to implement this to there site? .. and I’m guessing its some sort of API type thing
It’s a chat software to be installed in the buyer website, and to be used by buyer visitors.
Chat needs integration with the website: nicknames, avatars, profiles, friends, ...
So (with scenario1), the item in the marketplace contains: – All the code to work, except of integration code. – Included service of a developer (me for example) that will contact with the buyer in order to develop the integration with his site.
Finally, after some days since the purchase and no extra cost, the buyer gets the chat software installed and integration into his website.
Hmmm… Will you going to still guide them through installation or integration if they want to do it on their own? If not thats a bad idea and I dont think it will get accepted by CodeCanyon.
No, I won’t. Scenario2 would contain a rich installation/integration documentation, but wouldn’t include full-guide from my part, just the general item support.
So you recommend that only the Scenario1 will be suitable, because it would contain full-guide from my part: – Integration development. – And/or integration complete guide and support.
Well, If I was you give your script that ‘needs work’, an example of how you set it up and documentation, if you want to also provide a service to integrated it into peoples site that’s your choice.
So in short a must is:
