1. Nopcommerce is the brand now and new customers know about nopcommerce, magento, opencart, etc.
And? New customers search for the platform, choose depend on multiple points, one of is possible to extend the standard features list - by plugins. foxnetsoft wrote:
2. New customers don't check the list of plugins at nopcommerce marketplace.
Are you sure about it? You may speak here with @schurig. And he is not separate in this matter. foxnetsoft wrote:
4. Only existing nop customers check the nopcommerce marketplace. These customers know about everything about each of vendors.
False. Some of our customers before setting up the first store has asked about plugins with URL to the nopCommerce marketplace. foxnetsoft wrote:
nop marketplace had 20-25 sliders but most of them had bugs and issues.
That is a bit different story, however also very important. Nobody at this tread is against payment which will effect review plugins by nopTeam. Discuss here, again, is about the way of calculation and final cost for a vendor. foxnetsoft wrote:
The current logic is more useful for everyone.
Most vendors at this tread think the opposite. foxnetsoft wrote:
3. What money do you need to pay for one plugin?
According to your calculation, to publish 20 plugins, each vendor needs to pay over 1200
$ every year. That is a cost without support, without developing process. And that is cost, which may not be returnable to the vendor, even if plugins are valuable but simply sales of those are smaller.
That is because of nopCommerce community is not as large as Magento for example.
And because of the marketplace model community may be smaller each year from now. And this will affect sales for all vendors.
