1. Getting started

First, you’ll need to decide which services you want to offer. Popular services are:

  • Support hours: Offer an hour bank for support.
  • Bug fixing: Provide bug fixing or priority issue solving
  • Consulting: Share your expertise and provide project related guidance
  • Customization: Add custom features per request

You can offer services for a one-time payment, or as an ongoing subscription.

2. Import your public repository

First, you’ll need to add your public repository, which is the foundation on which you will create your paid items.

Click “Add repository” and follow the instructions. Your repository has to be public, and you’ll need to install our Read-only Github app on you repository for verification purposes.

3. Create a “Code” item

Now, let’s create your paid “code access” item and connect it to your private repository. In the repository editor, click “Add item“, and select the “Code” item type. You’ll need to install our Github app on your private repository, so we can clone your code to our servers. Users who purchase this item, will get a unique read-only token to access your private repository with git, npm or pip.

4. Set a price

Choose your item’s price and billing model:

  • One-time payment
  • Monthly \ Annual subscription

We suggest offering your code with a reasonable annual subscription.

5. Update your Readme.md on Github

Choose your item’s price and billing model:

  • One-time payment
  • Monthly \ Annual subscription

The best place to start promoting your paid items, is on your readme file.
