How It Works

Regardless of whether you choose the Paid Launch or the Free L(a)unch our priority is to get your template built faster than the speed of light!  In order to make that happen we need you to provide us with as much information as you can.  Get your logos, images, copy, and any other assets ready to send over.

PAID LAUNCH

Gather Information

When you submit a request for the Paid Launch package we’ll shoot you over an email requesting a laundry list of information.  Simply reply to the email with the information we’re requesting and we’ll call you ASAP.  If you miss our call don’t worry we’ll keep calling until we talk to you in person.

Flat Rate Price

Once we’ve gathered all of the information that we need and together agreed to a scope of work, we will send you over a flat rate price and an estimated timeline to completion.

Build

Now that the prep is done, we will start building your plugin/customized version of WPMerchant.  When everything is exactly how you want it, we’ll send it over for your review.

Testing

Finally, once we’ve received your final approval we’ll test out your sweet new plugin a final time on our WordPress development installation.  Once it gets our thumbs up, we’ll email over a zipped file containing the plugin source code.

Launch

From here, you can start using your plugin right away and if you want, we can submit it to the WordPress Plugin Directory for approval on your behalf.  Once approved by the awesome WordPress Plugin approval team you can start getting users for your plugin. If for whatever reason your plugin gets denied, we’ll make any necessary revisions required to get your plugin approved. You can also start selling your new WordPress plugin (given that it is NOT a custom version of WPMerchant). We can help lead you in the right direction to build a site as well.

Dude WPMerchant blew me away, pun intended. Perhaps the most fun I've ever had spending $500. Plus I walked away with a sweet WordPress Plugin for my website.

About Our Launch Technicians

That’s Ben there on the left, and Lee on the right. We were hiking in the Pacific Palisades near our homes in Santa Monica, California.

We can’t say enough about our technicians. They are perhaps the coolest, awesomest people you’ll ever meet! OK you caught us, we are the founders of WPMerchant and we’ll be guiding you through your plugin launch.

Our names are Ben and Lee Shadle, we’re brothers and we’re developers that run a small web development shop. Our specialties are building custom WordPress Plugins, custom websites, web apps, and LeadPages.net landing pages. Lee does the frontend design and development and Ben does the backend architecture and development. We’ve been building sites for clients for over 4 years now.

We built WPMerchant so that anyone can use our simple and innovative technology to sell their products online; so that anyone can start making money today by selling products/widgets/etc on their website; so that your customers can have the quickest possible fully integrated purchase flow; and so that you don’t have to pay $300, $400, or $500+ per year to keep your premium extensions updated. WPMerchant is the quickest, easiest and most effective way to create an online store that produces sales.

FAQ

How do I get my plugin/feature request idea chosen for the Free L(a)unch?

We are pretty picky when it comes to building free plugins/feature requests.  We have to see a larger need in the WordPress Plugin Directory for your template.  The more industry specific and problem specific your plugin idea is, the more likely we are to build your plugin.

For feature requests, we need it to be simple and align with our future goals for WPMerchant.

Why is the Paid Launch Price TBD?

All WordPress plugins are different and we need to define the scope of work before giving you a flat rate price.

How much can I expect to make selling my plugin?

It really depends on what you price your plugin at and the broader demand in the WordPress community.  Certain markets are definitely smaller than others but there are certain markets that have no ceilings for sales. 24% of the internet is now powered by WordPress; so it’s just a matter of getting your product noticed by users in your target market.
