SeoToaster Plugins Marketplace Rules & Requirements
So you've made some theme or plug-in and you'd like to have it in the marketplace? Well we'd sure love to include it, and let you earn money in the process.
So that we can work in full transparency with users, and clear mutual understanding, we only ask of you to follow a few simple rules:
- You must have complete rights to the code you're submitting.
If you're using 3rd party libraries, someone else's design, or anything else that might have any legal holdings, you need to let us know in the comments section during submission. We assume that you have properly attributed all works, if not your contribution will be rejected and deleted from the SeoToaster Plugins Marketplace, plus you may experience some serious legal issues with any legitimate copyright holder.
- Your plug-in must work without further extension.
If your plug-in requires something else be installed, or wraps some other application, you need to find a way to include everything required in the package. If there's a API key type field that someone has to populate (like our Advanced Google Maps plug-in) that's understandable and acceptable. If it's "go get the latest version of XYZ and install it so this plug-in will work" - that's not.
- You have to be able to provide support.
For free plugins, we only ask you to answer any Q&A request or support ticket within 30 days. For paid-for plugins, we ask that you answer to all requests within 48 hours. Failure to comply will likely result in termination of your plugin endorsement and/or any association with SeoToaster, its parent company and related brands.
