BP WC Vendors will become a free/pro Plugin

by Sven Lehnert | Extensions, News, Special Deals, WooCommerce BuddyPress

With this blog post we want to inform existing users of the Free BP WC Vendors Plugin about an important change. With BP WC Vendors you are able to build a highly customizable BuddyPress driven marketplace. This plugin integrates your WooCommerce shop, your BuddyPress social network and your WC vendors plugin. All WC Vendor dashboard tabs get integrated into the BuddyPress Member Profiles. At the moment this plugin is free and only works with the pro version of wc vendor. Sadly it turned out that many our customers complained about that solution which is why we want to make a momentous change. A small plugin that we needed for a client’s project and gave away for free to the community has now 400 active installs and we expecting it’s growing. We’re experiencing being out of balance as the plugin is completely free and the support increases significant as people want us to maintenance the plugin and update it regularly. We have not enough resources to keep it a priority that way. With the growing user base and the ever changing WooCommerce the maintenance is not handleable anymore. We have two options.

1. Drop The Plugin and remove it from the repository

or

2. Making a free and a pro version out of it to generate an income stream which we’ll use for the maintenance and development.

We go for the second solution The dramatical but logic change that we will have to do is making the free plugin work with the free version and the pro plugin work with the pro version of WC Vendor. This means that all users using the pro version would need to buy the plugin which costs 95 $. We understand that it will frustrate some users but it’s the only way we can maintain an awesome plugin with a great support, sustainable in the long run. We will grandfather in all old users with a huge 50% DISCOUNT.   See it as a small crowdfunding campaign Gain the 50% discount for the pro version and further enjoy our service.   This is where your money goes: We will use the money 100% for development into the plugin. By informing you early on we want to give you time to confirm with our changes. For those who use our services we believe you will understand. Think about it, you might be even appreciate that we are interested in going for the long run feeling motivated maintaining a serious marketplace for business owners and BuddyPress users. We hope for your understanding. The plugin is an important component being maintenanced from a company under a paid and SUPPORTED plan. Don’t forget to grab your 50% discount! Your ThemeKraft Team
