I have a money tracking (shopping list, shared household expenses and recipes) script that has sold really badly!
Interestedly I wrote it when I lived in a shared house and it was awesome, some of my friends still use it and they love it (they still ask for features to be added).
Compared to my password manager script I expected it to sell better (or maybe simply the password manager app sold better than I expected).
I think the product was too niche and/or I simply didn’t market it well. I have an awesome upgrade coming but don’t expect it to change how well it does!
Also the type of buyers on this marketplace are pretty specific and I think are often out to purchase something for their clients and not themselves (maybe?).
Hey just wondering how the timeline for this change is going? Are we aiming to have the item support changes in the next month or two, or it is going to take longer than that?
Just a quick update.
You can now sign up and “watch” a domain. This means the system will automatically run an audit on your domain once a day, store and results and email you if a change is detected.
I’ve also added a few more DNS tests too.
Just adding my +1 for paid updates. Paid support is better than nothing, but 1 years upgrades to get the latest versions of our software does sound better.
I agree there should be an option for charging for major upgrades.
The software we sell here has an auto-update feature, it is very useful as it saves downloading the zip, uploading via FTP and then running the upgrade script. It also only downloads the changed files.
Once this new support API is out we are only going to offer the auto-update feature to customers who have support.
Long term it would be nice to charge for upgrades but I do believe this is a step in the right direction.
I just typed a nice reply but lost it
Basically all sounds great, just please ensure API gets updated to allow us to check support status.
Just a quick update.
