7 Reasons Why You’ll Love our Bootstrap Marketplace

After several months of hard work, we’re very excited to launch our new marketplace for premium Bootstrap themes & templates. We know for a fact that you’re going to love it.

Now, you’re probably asking yourself… Why another marketplace? It’s a fair question to ask and one that we made sure to answer before building this site.

We put together the following list of reasons why we believe BootstrapBay will be your #1 source for Bootstrap themes & templates.

Bootstrap Focused

While other marketplaces currently exist, the majority of them cover multiple platforms and frameworks. If you’re looking for themes that are strictly built off Bootstrap, this creates a problem. To find what you’re looking for, you often need to search through multiple categories and dissect the item descriptions.

Rest assured that every theme listed on our site is built with Bootstrap.

We Don’t Punish Non-Exclusive Sellers

We’ve always been puzzled how so many marketplaces can offer such low payouts to theme authors who sell non-exclusively. We recognize that many authors make their living off building themes and we believe you should have the right to sell your work through as many channels as possible.

This was one trend that we wanted to break and one of the main motivators for starting the site. Regardless of whether you sell your themes exclusively with us or not, your earning potential remains the same. You can visit our sell your themes page for more information.

Payment Rates Based on Cumulative Sales

Another practice we noticed on some other marketplaces was payment rates being determined on a per item basis rather than cumulative sales. This means that as an author, you start at the bottom of the payment rate scale whenever you release a new theme.

If you’re consistently putting out great themes, you should be rewarded accordingly. As a result, we’ve based our payment rates on total cumulative sales to ensure you’re continuously being paid out at a high rate.

Our Blog

We don’t just want to be another marketplace. We want to help our users and push the Bootstrap movement forward. For this reason, we decided to start this blog to provide you with useful content related to Bootstrap and web design in general.

While this first post was necessary to promote the launch of our site, future posts will be focused on providing you with value-added content, not just site updates. Whether you’re a beginner or a seasoned developer, our goal is to equip you with the tools and resources that will help you take your development to the next level.

If you’d like to contribute to our blog, feel free to contact us and let us know what kind of content you’d like to contribute.

User Experience

Our users were the number one priority when we created this site. We wanted you to have a pleasant experience whether you’re buying or selling a theme.

As we’ve navigated through other marketplaces, there were always things we would have done differently. And now, we’ve put them into action. When it comes to user experience, we’re firm believers in simplicity and clean design, which transcends though the entire site.

Affiliate Earnings

Engaging the proper communities is instrumental when starting a new marketplace. To help us reach the right people, we’ve established an affiliate program that will enable you to make money promoting our brand.

Upon signup, you will receive a unique identifier. You can then add this identifier to the end of any BootstrapBay URL to generate an affiliate link. If someone purchases an item through your affiliate link, you will receive 10% of the earnings.

While some marketplaces expire your cookies when a purchase is made, we value the business that is brought to us through our affiliates. As a result, you will continue to generate earnings for 90 days even on repeat purchases from the same buyer.

We’re Human

I don’t know about you, but I like dealing with humans. If you contact us, you’ll get a personalized response from a member of our team.
