I sell themes on Creative Market, ThemeIsle, WordPress.com, and my own site.
Yes - but they also bring an audience. They also take care of payment processing, some tax elements, some support elements. etc
But how do you know Lelands site exists?
I have the same problem. There’s so many sites doing this that it’s hard to stand out. I’d love it if I could just sell themes through my site but I get very little traffic and sales from there so I have to spread myself out to other sites.
As someone who buys themes - how do you find theme sites? How do you know which ones are trustworthy/ better than the stuff you find on ThemeForest?
If there’s a way for me to just sell themes on my site then I would happily use it since it would mean less maintenance and effort for me. For me, the biggest concern is my reliance on these third party companies. I don’t mind the revenue share - it’s the fact they could change business model and switch off my income at any second that’s scariest.
