Incsub Launches WP Plugins; App Store For WordPress Plugins




Wordpress is one of the web's most popular blogging platforms, with over 8.5 million downloads and 7,200 plugins. But with all those plugins, finding the high quality ones can be a challenge. That's where WP Plugins comes in. Launching today, WP Plugins hopes to be the App Store for WordPress plugins.

WordPress plugin developers can upload their premium plugins to WP Plugins and sell them to users. Developers have the choice to sell their plugins at whatever price they choose, and can two choose from two pricing models: they can offer their plugin as-is (buyers will have a 7 day window to download it) or they can offer it as a subscription, which includes upgrades and personal support from the plugin's developer for as long as you continue the subscription. Of course, the subscription will cost more in most cases. WP Plugins then takes 10% of each plugin sale.

To participate, plugin developers have sign up for a developer account, and upload their plugin. Incsub’s team of WordPress experts will then look over plugin, and once it’s approved, it’ll get put on the store and up for sale. Incsub will monitor plugins and make sure there is no malicious content as well. WP Plugins has more information here.


Incsub has quite the experience with WordPress; they’ve run sites including Edublogs, WordPress Multi-User Dev and blog network hosts Blogs.mu.
