Over the years, Magento Marketplace has achieved considerable achievements in the design and coding criteria to ensure users the most up-to-date and trusted Magento extension marketplace.
Since Magento Marketplace is an open platform in which developers are free to upload their Magento extensions for commercial purposes, you can earn up to 70% commission for each Magento solution. If you are new to the market, the process of submitting an extension might cost you a great deal of time and effort. In this blog, we will show you step-by-step guidelines to submit Magento extensions for Magento Marketing Review in Magento Marketplace.
1. Marketplace Submission Process
All extensions updated to Magento Marketplace have to go through a submission process to verify that all extensions on Magento Marketplace meet certain coding and practice standards. It is a must that your extensions are qualified by the Extension Quality Program (EQP) including Magento experts, development guidelines, and verification tools to check the compatibility of your Magento solutions and Marketplace criteria.
The submission process will follow a guideline with four steps:
Step 1: Create your own extensions satisfying certain coding and practice standards.
Step 2: Submit your extensions for Magento Marketing Review and Technical Review
Step 3: Pass all Magento Marketing review and Technical Review and the extension will be placed on Marketplace
Step 4: Waiting for payment after 3 months.
It is noted that all steps must be followed strictly to ensure a smooth submission process. After submitted, the extension will enter a queue, and following that queue, submission emails will be sent to your email. Also, you can easily track your submission status and progress through Magento Marketplace account.
