Hi there,

We buy a range of premium plugins and themes, often to support the author.  However the one thing that will make us not use / buy is this gpl/restricted license style.  Offer it for sale, but supply it as completely gpl cf gravity forms or shopp or even release free cf wp-ecommerce.

From the POV of earning from it have a hosted demo and offer the product for sale.

Ref your signature what does the plugin do?

BTW Plugins that require ion cube or similar to run are always off the shopping list.
