Trusted by the best and brightest SaaS brands, AppSumo has become the #1 marketplace for entrepreneurs who are always looking for the next best tool or product to grow their business.
And now we’re making it even more accessible to those who want to not only buy—but now sell—their products to an excited and engaged audience.
With AppSumo Marketplace, you’ll have the opportunity to get your products or tools in front of over one million entrepreneurs, founders, affiliate marketers, and hustlers in as soon as a week. You also get the priceless opportunity to receive detailed, constructive feedback from users who want to see you win.
Curious? Let’s dive into the details of AppSumo Marketplace.
What is AppSumo Marketplace?
AppSumo Marketplace is a new online space to highlight hustlers and products from our community and beyond!
Unlike the typical SaaS offerings seen in our lifetime deals, the Marketplace showcases other types of products in addition to software like downloadable content (PDFs, ebooks, templates, etc.), online courses, memberships, and more. And the best part is that you’ll be able to get your listing in our store (and in front of people who are ready to give you their money) in as little as a week.
Listings in our marketplace are a little different than the usual lifetime deals you see on our site. Marketplace listings are evergreen instead of limited-time promotions. That means your listing will exist on the AppSumo Marketplace forever (and ever and ever… or at least for 120 days), and you’ll forever have the opportunity to bring in new customers.
We’re looking for any digital product or tool that will help hustlers grow. If you’ve got a SaaS solution, ebook, PDF, template library, online course, WordPress plugin, Chrome extension, membership, or conference tickets — we want you to join the Marketplace!
But Don’t Take Our Word For It…
Sure, we think we’re great. But what is it actually like to be a part of the AppSumo Marketplace?
One of the greatest benefits that creators mention about selling their products in the AppSumo Marketplace is the invaluable feedback they receive from eager, engaged, and enthusiastic Sumo-lings. This feedback is invaluable as they work to grow their public roadmap, improve the user experience, and empower their customers to do big things in their businesses.
But don’t take our word for it.
“But more than the money, the value we received was the feedback and questions we got from those who enrolled into our course.” – Sachin at The Advanced Course in Digital Marketing
“Primary goal was feedback to help prioritize our roadmap. We have a list of 1,000 things we want/need to do, but prioritizing them based on what customers really need is always a challenge. We got this in spades.” – Jeff at Markup Hero
“I’ve received a ton of feedback and ideas for new features, tons of bugs exposed and fixed, and a better understanding of the market and users’ needs. Oh and the money doesn’t hurt :D” – Oliver at Niceboard
How AppSumo Marketplace Works
Anyone who wants to join the AppSumo Marketplace just needs to submit their product, which our team will review and approve. Then the fun begins.
Once a Sumo-ling purchases your product or tool from the Marketplace, AppSumo delivers it in the form of an instant download (for downloadable content) or a code that buyers can use to redeem the product on your website.
You’ll want to keep an eye on reviews and questions from Sumo-lings as engaging with the community will impact your listing’s performance. (Don’t worry! They won’t bite.)
While you don’t pay anything to be listed on the AppSumo Marketplace, there is a simple commission structure. You get 70% of all sales. And as a bonus, you will get 90% of the sales from your first 90 days on the marketplace. With AppSumo’s 60-day refund window, you’ll receive payouts 60 days after the sale.
Grow Your Reach on the Marketplace
You know what they say, “Mo’ Tacos, Mo’ Money.” (And by they, I mean me. I just made that up.)
But in AppSumo land, the taco is king (like a star-rating, but tastier). And the more reviews and tacos you rack up on your listing, the more opportunities you’ll have to grow your reach.
After 10 reviews with 4+ taco ratings, you’ll get a shoutout on our Facebook group, putting your listing in front of over 200,000 eager hustlers. And after 25 reviews with 4+ taco ratings, we’ll call out your listing in our email footer.
As we continue to grow the Marketplace, we will continue to evolve how customers can discover your amazing product. To name a few factors that will impact your reach on the Marketplace:
- Traffic to your deal page
- Engagement and conversion
- Number and quality of reviews
We are actively testing and optimizing all of these with the end goal of helping our Marketplace makers and creators grow.
So what can you do to grow your reach now?
Be active and engage with those on your deal page as you keep working to drive more people to the page. And encourage customers to leave reviews so you can get that feedback (and those tacos!)
