Best would be to try the verify-purchase api call to protect items sold through this marketplace.

Probably have to figure it out how to protect it in some way yourself, because if someone posts a how-to here it would be easy to reverse it.

Nothing is 100%, anyone who knows php can get around any sort of protection that can be sold on these marketplaces.

Otherwise if you are making a program not for sale on this marketplace, and you don’t want the client to access the code, then http://www.ioncube.com/ is the best commercial way to go.

Make sure hosting environment supports ioncube.

I think a lot of the big guys like plesk and cpanel use this to protect their own source code / licensing system.
