Billing & Licensing
Plugins are very similar to JetBrains’ own products in regard to how JetBrains’ sales systems treat them on the business logic level. This means that most of the sales processes available for JetBrains products are also available for third-party plugins sold via JetBrains Marketplace.
We support all the standard approaches we have for JetBrains’ own products, such as:
Different means of payment (credit/debit cards, PayPal, wire transfer).
Management via JetBrains Account (JBA).
Community support programs of open source projects, teachers, students, etc.
On-premises License Server
Third-party plugin licenses are also fully supported on the JetBrains on-premises License Server. More information about the solution here.
Distribution Network - Resellers
JetBrains is utilizing its resellers and distributors network to make plugins available via the JetBrains distribution network. Plugin vendors decide whether to participate or not during the release process.
In a case of selling a plugin via JetBrains' resellers, there will be an additional commission held by the reseller, and this reseller commission is paid from JetBrains commission (so the plugin developer always gets a constant % of the plugin price). More information about developer’s fee here.
