At the begining, allow me to share some thoughts, as I`m here new. One of my customers start using nopCommerce and order customization. So here I am, starting working with nopCommerce. My post will be review of changes. If you take under cosideration, will be glad to help, as I`m big enthusiastic of Open Source. Nop-Templates.com wrote:

So in the fact, as nop4you
wrote, if plugin will be sell via third party page, sources send to nopTeam may be different! That is nothing to add at this point, as @NewYork post solution
of it. Nop-Templates.com wrote:
But instead of supporting the nopCommerce team in their decision to improve the Marketplace, we only see vendors complaining about it.
As see, most of your work is themes, which are open source so that is not big deal for you. In case of plugins, that is different, as customers got dlls. So that is for secure own business by each vendor. Nop-Templates.com wrote:
Please guys stop complaining and show some respect to the nopCommerce team and please support them in their efforts to make a good Marketplace for everyone!
What about respect nopTeam of vendors work? Why Apple or Google does not require to share sources to sell apps? Because companies know how complicated is copyright law. Let me point one more thing - even companies like Apple does not ask for sources, but host ready apps on own servers and provide payments among own vendors. nopCommerce does not do this step (well, maybe yet does not) but asking for sources! Very bad practice.
To fully test any plugin, nopTeam may run platform in test mode and fully test trial versions, just like Apple/Google do. nopAdvance.com wrote:
How do other platforms do this?
Do not practice this kind of actions. I mean "reading" source code by staff. ilich_x86 wrote:

The only PSD files I get, when customer asking for custom theme. However that is required by ThemeForest to add. nopAdvance.com wrote:

Are you really sure, nopCommerce platform is ready for this step? Does small companies or start ups got such a number of sale that will cover all expencies? I`m a bit sceptic at this point, but maybe sale is much more than I suspect among last few days of board activity. What is more, I`m not alone at this point of view:rajupaladiya wrote:
I don't think this makes any sense Sir.
Of course, you may fully ignore my post. If such a solution will be added, will do what customer paid for and gone far away of nopCommerce. No big deal, worst if more vendors will go away because of this. Think, if it will not kill this software.
