Hi There,

I recently signed up here in an effort to sell some of the extensions i have created for the Opencart community. It was said when i originally signed up ti use a commercial license that i would receive an email when this had gone through, and that was nearly 2 weeks ago. I have attempted twice now to get in contact with someone through the "Contact Us" page to get this done, but to no avail.

Can someone please tell me if there is some criteria that i am missing in order to have a seller account status, or something else entirely? Is there anyone that could do this for me?

i contacted them and got the replay, they said you should be active in community and help other in community, then only they allow you to sell on opencart.com

I dont wanna put words in the OC staff mouth, but i have a few things that could help get you noticed. Even with some momentum and some proven help on forums it still took us about 2.5 months to get accepted as a seller.

First, you should be very active in the community...you only have 1 post asking about seller account. By "very active" i mean posting solutions that work without spending money, sharing code repairs for OP's in critical situations, helping OP's in general outside of a code-centric focal, and of course keeping your cool. Also you need to provide extensions that dont "reinvent the wheel". Whats something that re-invents the wheel? Well an OC cache, single page checkout, or abandoned cart mod would be good examples of re-inventing the wheel. There are about 30 of them already, could yours do it better? How are you unique? How good is your code? Explaining the purpose of your account to them will def help you out. Think experience, purpose, and obviously potential to convert into sales.

Another thing that may help is releasing some free mods. As you browse the OC market you will see many $10 mods with about 0 sales. Why? Because they used to let anyone in, and some are very simple fixes or features that people are not willing to pay for. Its pretty much cluttering up the market because of it. Find some of these features and release it for free. Get a successful release under your belt to give yourself a bit of credibility.

One more thing that might be crucial is having a valid realm. If you open a site called isellopencartmods.biz and its a piece of crap site released yesterday, you will *most likely* not be accepted (since you look amateur). Having a bit of credibility, experience, and most importantly, legacy, will help you out significantly. Think if you were competing with some large and established software company, you need to match the force on the market they have, the best you can. No half filled lorem ipsum wordpress template, no "ill finish that later after i get some partner accounts". It must be rolling before you apply, possibly with some sort of "what we do", possibly complete with at least some kind of portfolio.

Hope that helps and i captured with the OC staff is now looking for.

Sorry for this to be my first post but: how can someone that does not "chirp" in this forum and wants to sell a niche extension even succeed? I say niche because there are loads of general extensions and to offer quality extension it ought to be specific to the task. In that regard these rules are hindering development of quality support for OpenCart.

And forum posts? Really? It's like they're putting the burden of development insight on us instead of having good documentation readily available. Sheesh, why just not make entry fee for seller account and fund yourself out of it..

Again sorry if any of this had you offended but this "need to contribute 1st" s*it is really hindering ANY kind of development.
