Anyone here ever sell their scripts?

Posted 12 September 2010 - 10:09 PM

I have been working on a system that allows these:

  • User system (create user, login, edit account, etc)
  • Uploading of a game/files (with multiple options)
  • Management for these games (deletion, editing of source)
  • User homepage creator (lets them make their own "website")
  • Viewing system (so that others can view their games)

I plan on adding more and polishing it up. And then maybe even selling it. I just don't know how much it would cost though. Long story short, how much are scripts worth?

Is This A Good Question/Topic? 0

Scripts are not worth too much because usually you can't hide the source so people just pirate the work. Plus the types of scripts you are talking about are usually a dime a dozen and can be coded up in a few days by half way decent coders. Now if you can use them to build entire systems then perhaps you can leverage a bit of cash out of them.

However, you have to keep in mind that people like us on the board here write scripts every day just helping people out so don't expect too much out of them. Now one thing you could try is a donation system and see what people are willing to donate to help you out with future development. That or find a way to compile or obfuscate the source some how.

I suggest you take a look around the web and see what people are selling with the same features you have and price accordingly. Just don't expect to make too much of killing on scripts. :)
