A better, fairer price structure for Jigoshop

Posted in Blog, Extensions and tagged , on by .

We launched Jigoshop just over two years ago, with the ambition to open up WordPress eCommerce to a much wider range of businesses, from individuals looking to try running an online store in their spare time to larger companies who weren’t able to invest thousands in existing solutions.

The aim was also to let a community grow and thrive around Jigoshop, with business owners, designers and developers all able to share information and hopefully earn a living through their work.

We’ve succeeded in some ways, with the Jigoshop community forum and a wide range of extensions and themes available, but as Jigoshop has grown we’ve realised we need to make some changes for this to continue in the future.

 

Introducing Jigoshop Licensing:

Going forwards, extensions will be sold for Jigoshop on a licensed basis, with the price based on the number of sites a product is used on. Themes will also follow suit at some point in the future.

We want to make sure we’re still enabling individuals to have access to a cost effective WordPress eCommerce solution, without raising all prices to cover those costs.

At the same time, we want anyone developing for Jigoshop to know they will get a fair reward for their time – third party developers are hugely important to ensuring we can offer the best selection of extensions and themes.

And we also want to make sure that our pricing and service still works well for anyone using Jigoshop for client work. Whether you’re developing for a handful of clients or many more.

 

What isn’t changing:

Licensing begins from October 2nd, 2013, but some things will remain the same:

  • Jigoshop remains free to download and operate with no extensions or themes required. And you can even choose from PayPal, FuturePay and WorldPay (within 1.8 Jigoshop soon) included in the core Jigoshop download.
  • Free Extensions for Jigoshop remain free to use as much as you like, on as many sites as you like
  • Existing purchases will continue to work, and licensing will only come into effect when each extension or theme is updated. That means you can stagger upgrades in line with your need and budget.
  • You still get 14 days free Premium Support with any extension purchase
  • Jigoshop is still one of the most cost-effective online shop platforms available

 

How Licensing Will Work:

Starting with Jigoshop-developed extensions, when you make a purchase, you’ll be emailed a License Key which will be required to activate that extension on your site(s).

To make this simple and clear, we’ve collected every extension for Jigoshop into pricing tiers, so you know exactly what you’re paying:

  Single Site 2-5 Sites 6-25 sites
Tier 1 $35 $70 $175
Tier 2 $65 $130 $325
Tier 3 $95 $190 $475

 

That not only means that you can still create a great online shop for a very small outlay. It also means that we (and third party developers), can invest more time and resource for those with multiple shops.  And our prices at each level are still incredibly cost-effective in comparison to our rivals.

 

Important: For existing extensions to continue working:

Importantly, if you’re currently running any of the initial group of extensions to come under our new Licensing system, and you receive a notification to install an upgrade via the WordPress/Jigoshop Admin dashboard, you’ll need to email us at info@jigoshop.com to receive a license key for the extension to continue working.

To enable us to find your original order and quickly generate a license key, please send your Order ID in your email, which can be found either in your Jigoshop Admin, or in the email you were sent following your purchase.

Please do not upgrade until you’ve received your license key, as the extension will cease operating until it is added.

The initial extensions included in Licensing are:

  • Authorize.net PRO
  • Premium Shipping
  • Table Rates Shipping
  • Mini-Cart Deluxe
  • Up sells and Cross sells
  • Sales Flash Options
  • Gravity Forms Integration
  • Jigoshop HTML Emails
  • Canada Post Shipping

More will be announced in the days and weeks to come.
