FAQs

Who are you?

We are Ionic, an SDK for hybrid mobile app development.

What percentage of sales do marketplace authors receive?

We're in this to provide people a way to extend Ionic's functionality while keeping the core of Ionic lean. We're not trying to make any money from the market. In fact, we don't even take a cut. Authors will receive all proceeds, minus applicable taxes and payment processing fees (governmental and payment processor fees, not ours).

Where can I find my Invoice or Receipt?

The Ionic Marketplace facilitates transactions between buyers and sellers, and is not an active party in the exchange of funds. Please contact the seller regarding invoices or receipts.

How should Ionic Market submissions be formatted?

We don't want to limit how authors format their zip files. There are exceptions to every rule, and we don't want to hinder authors. That said, unless there's reason to format it differently, starters should be a zip of the project's www directory. Themes should be a zipped SCSS file. Plugins should be formatted similar to a bower plugin of an HTML, JS, and CSS file, as necessary. Remember, simpler is better.

What is the difference between a Starter, a Plugin, and a Theme?

Starters are fully functional apps. Plugins are specific features that can be added to an existing app. Themes contain only style changes.

My listing changed. Why?

Ionic retains editorial control of the Market, and we do everything we can to make listings as appealing and attractive as possible. For example, from time to time, we may update (or ask you to update) your icon or featured graphic. If we update something, we'll email you to let you know, and you are welcome to discuss your preferences with us. Occasionally we may change things because you're using text or graphics we don't allow. For example, while you are welcome to incorporate the Ionic logo into a design, you may not use it as your icon.

Who is able to become an author?

Anyone who has an ionic.io account may create content for the Ionic Market. To sell that content, you'll need to be from a country that Stripe Connect Supports, but if you're not, the Ionic Market also allows you provide a link to another site where your add-on is listed for purchase.

What is the payment schedule for authors?

Our current payment schedule is bi-weekly. This may change as the Ionic Market matures but should never extend beyond one month.

I'm having a problem! How do I contact you?

Is Ionitron sentient?

It depends on which definition of sentience you're referring to. According to Robert Freitas, he's a perfect 10!
