FAQ

General

Yes, with a few major differences than other WordPress marketplaces like Mojo or ThemeForest.

On our platform you can sell Ready-Made WordPress sites as a subscription service model and get recurring revenue. The services include Managed WordPress Hosting on AWS.

Even if people get/buy a beautiful WordPress theme, they will still have to manage a lot of things on their own. In other words, they will have to take care of choosing hosting vendor, purchase a domain & SSL, struggle with WordPress installation and so on. 

If the customer doesn’t have enough technical knowledge, he may face some problems and he may try to find another theme, ask a professional developer or even quit building his own website with WordPress. 

With ReadyShip, they will get fully functional Ready-Made WordPress site with managed WordPress hosting in minutes! And all they will need to do is just change the demo content according to their needs.

Nothing! Selling on ReadyShip is completely free. You will never be asked to pay anything. Cool, Right? 🙂

Ready-Made WordPress site is not some special thing, but just a regular WordPress site which includes installed theme, plugins and content. And on our platform, you can sell a whole WordPress site as a service.

The buyers (your customers) will get a clone of your WordPress site which is fully designed/developed by you.

The cloned site is completely separated (independent) from the original one. So they can manage it on their own according to their needs.

Yes. With ReadyShip you can make bigger and more stable profit than other WordPress theme/plugin marketplaces. 

Here is a simple example. On other marketplaces the average price of themes is around $50, which is only one-time payment per customer.
The minimum selling price on ReadyShip is $59/month of which $24 are the seller’s profit ($35 goes for hosting). That means $288/year per customer. So the profit per customer will be 5 – 10 times bigger than other marketplaces.

How to Start Selling

Overall, it’s quite easy for you.

  1. Register on our platform: https://factory.readyship.co/
  2. Sign in & create your first product(a WordPress site).
  3. Build the WordPress site as you usually do.
  4. Put some description and set pricing plan on the product
  5. Publish it for sale on the platform. https://readyship.co/products

We will check your site to make sure there are no problems.

  • License checks: Check if your WordPress site contains any split licensed plugins/themes. [About plugins/themes licenses](link to another question)
  • Source code security check: The code is checked for suspicious code that may have sneaked in. The code is checked by both machines and people.
  • We will test your site to make sure there will be no problems with cloning your site.

If there are some problems with your product, we will inform you about the reason and further instructions via email.

You can simply advertise your ReadyShip products on your own website so you can lead your customers to the checkout page.

The process is very simple. The customers will go to the checkout page of your product and then click Launch Website. Then they will choose payment plan, set domain and start building a clone of your product. And in just a few minutes the buyers will get their own website.

Guide – Getting Started https://helpcenter.readyship.co/docs/guides/getting-started/

No. Your changes will not affect your existing customers websites, because they are completely independent from your WordPress. So feel free to add changes anytime.

Yes.
But after you add changes, please make sure to submit a new release version. This step will apply the changes you made.

Themes, Plugins and Licenses

Yes. You are allowed to use any existing themes/plugins that are licensed under 100% GPL.
Especially, all the themes/plugins published on WordPress.org are licensed under 100% GPL, so you can use any of them safely.

Note: You cannot use items that are licensed under non-100% GPL (aka “split license”). And please make sure to use images that are licensed under CC0 or similar one that allow free usage and redistribution.

We strongly recommend using only 100% GPL plugins/themes. In most cases, a split license prohibits the plugin/theme to be used for reselling.

Please check the terms of the plugins/themes if they are 100% licesed under GPL.

Yes, all settings will be cloned as well.
Since the database and files under `wp-content` directory of the WordPress site will be cloned entirely, all your settings/customizations will be applied to the customer’s new WordPress.

There aren’t any special requirements or limiations except that the products must not contain any license issues with themes, plugins, images or demo content.

Hosting & Domains

To maximize the performance speed, we provide AWS Fullstack Architecture which includes CloudFront CDN, SSD, S3, EC2/ECS(Docker), RDS, Load Balancer, Lambda functions (for monitoring website’s health) and so on.

All websites instances have the following specs:

  • OS: Alpine Linux
  • CPU: 2.3 GHz Intel Xeon E5-2686 v4 Processor
  • Networking Performance: Up to 10Gbps
  • Memory: 8GB to 30GB dinamically
  • Web Server: nginx/1.12 or later
  • PHP Version: 7.2.2 or later
  • Maximum Upload Size: 30 MB
  • Database (RDS): AWS RDS, Aurora MySQL 5.6.x
  • Storage: SSD (AWS EBS)

*This information is current as of December 2018. We will keep improving our hosting services so upgrades will be applied as needed.

Yes. We will create FTP accounts for each website and we will send the login info to the customer via email.

Currently we’re not providing SSH access to the customers for security reasons. If they want to change their server configurations they can do it through our support.

Our hosting service is managed and already configured for WordPress, so basically they don’t need to touch the server configurations.

Yes. The customers can use ReadyShip’s subdomain or their own domain. After they buy a website, they can set their own domain name.
In this case, they will have to change the DNS record with our help.

Technically, we will provide a new AWS CloudFront distribution for each WordPress site. So all they will need to do is just change the CNAME record to the WordPress’ CloudFront domain (something like d6fm6fulu3ti9.cloudfront.net).

About WordPress core updates:
– Minor updates will be done automatically to ensure security.
– Major updates have to be done manually by the customer.
– We will forcefully update the core version if the website’s WordPress current version is no longer supported.

Plugins and themes updates:
– We will not update them automatically. The customer is completely responsible to update them manually.

Plans & Pricing

The selling price is defined as follows. You just put your price on top of our server cost ($35/month) and you get the selling price. For example if you put 40$, the selling price will be 75$/month.

Your Profit = Selling Price – Transaction Fee (Stripe Fee 3.6%) – Server Cost – PayPal Fee (4.4%)

In this case you will get around $21.87 on your PayPal account.

The differences are presented in the following table:

 SmallMediumLarge
Monthly Data Transfer Limit
100GB300GB2,000GB
Monthly Unique VisitsUnlimitedUnlimitedUnlimited
Front Website Server Instances124
Storage Capacity100GB300GB500GB

No. Our hosting service includes server instance, CDN, SSL, FTP, support and 24/7 monitoring. So there aren’t any additional premium options like other hosting companies do.

The minimum selling price is $59 per month.

Yes. However the changed price will not affect the existing customers.

We use Stripe as payment processor and we accept VISA, MasterCard, American Express, Discover, JCB and Diners Club.

Billing & Payouts

You will get your payouts on your PayPal account automatically through our Automatic Billing System.

If the billing fails we will reattempt to charge the customer for three times. 

  • First attempt (after 7 days)
  • Second attempt  (after 14 days)
  • Third attempt (after 21 days)

If all the attempts fail, the user’s website instance will be suspended and therefore unavailable. If the customer does not contact us, the website will be deleted after 90 days of suspension.

If the customer chose to pay monthly, the first billing will occur right after the trial period ends. After that the customer will be charged every month. For example if the first billing occurred on 8th of January, the customer will be charged on the 8th day of every month.

Other Technical Questions

Currently we’re not supporting multisite networks.
Instead of that on ReadyShip, you will be able to provide a whole cloned WordPress site to your customer. So they will get full control of their WordPress site without any restrictions.

The cloning is done automatically with the help of several technologies like Docker, AWS ECS, AWS S3 and so on.
1. Please submit new release version of your WordPress.
2. Then we will make a zip package that contains all the files under /wp-content directory and the database’s dumpfile.
3. When the customer buys your website, we will make a new Docker container.
4. We will install an empty WordPress and migrate the package into the new one.
5. Additionally, we will replace WordPress’ user data with the customer’s one and also remove the unused data like post revisions.
