Hi, I am planning on building a commercial WordPress plugin, and I am wondering what are the best practices here ? I'll be thankful for all the information I can get. Here are some questions that interest me in particular:
- do you obfuscate the files of the plugin ?
- do you use some more advanced like Zend Guard or Ion Cube ?
- how do yo charge for the plugin - a one time fee, or recurrent billing (anualy) ?
So far, the only commercial plugin I managed to find was PhpBayPro. I downloaded it's lite version, and it was base64 obfuscated, which is really easy to crack. I am not sure how useful will be something like this.
I tried looking for other commercial plugins on wp-plugins.net, but the website is down.
So, I'll be really thankful for all the information I cen get, and -- thank you in advance!
