Where can I sell WordPress themes and plugins?

I’ve been building some WordPress themes and plugins. What are the online marketplaces I can sell them?

here is a nice brake down for you:



Theme Forest
– Probably the biggest theme marketplace by Evanto. Rates: New authors begin at the 50%.

– Rates: between 50% and 70%.

– Rates: Start from 50% to 75%.

– Rates: Starts from 50% and may go up to 70%.

– Free listing.


Code Canyon
– Probably the biggest Plugin marketplace again by Evanto.
– Rates: New authors begin at the 50%

– The only other major plugin market place by Incsub.
– Rates: 70% fixed.



There is a lot of potential for selling templates on webmaster and webdev forums with marketplaces and very high traffic:

  • Webmaster-Talk
  • TalkFreelance
  • Digital Point

Other Designers and Developers

Two approaches here

  • Contact Designers and Developers who are selling in there own sites and ask to list your theme/plugin for a cut of the profit (negotiate well).
  • Contact Designers, Developers and Website builders look for there portfolios and see if you have a product (theme/plugin) they would need and use, offer to license a such product so they could use for there customers.

and lastly,

Sell on your Own site

Its harder then any other option but you get to keep 100% of the profits so if you market your self the right way you won’t need any of the places listed here 🙂

Envato has Theme Forest and Code Canyon. I don’t know how the GPL lovin’ WordPress community feels about it, but my company has bought things from there when we needed to. They aren’t updateable from the wp-admin though, so…

Though not nearly as large, WP Plugins is another marketplace for plugins.

Code Canyon and Theme Forest are by far the largest though.

I recommend you to make free versions of your plugins / themes which you submit to WordPress plugins / themes directory, and include in them links to your paid versions. Is the best way to promote your work.

Here http://mashable.com/2009/02/28/sell-designs-online/ you can find an extended list of marketplaces.

I would also recommend Mojo Themes

There’s been a massive discussion about selling Premium themes but at the end of the day you own the copy right to all code/images which don’t call on WordPress functions.

Also look at Mojo Themes

you have your own website means try with this one:Your Own Store.Create your own store & get 100% profit.otherwise theme forest & Mojo themes are good.:)
