October Marketplace is a great source of October plugins and themes. The Marketplace allows authors to share their work, be creative and for those interested, to produce an income. This article explains the technical principles of the Marketplace and we strongly recommend that you to read the Marketplaces Terms and the Author Terms.
Adding plugins to your projects
Before you can add a plugin to a project, you should have a project. You can create a new project right from the Add Plugin popup window. Please read the Projects documentation for information about projects and why they are needed. Free plugins are added to projects immediately. When you add a paid plugin, you're first redirected to the PayPal Payment page. After the successful payment the plugin is added to the project in the background. It could take a couple of minutes, until October gets a notification from PayPal. October will notify you by email when a paid plugin is added.
After adding a plugin you should update your October installation in order to download the plugin. You can update October from the System / Updates page.
In some cases you may experience a payment error on the PayPal page. When this happens please check the following:
Make sure your account can accept US Dollars (USD).
Check that you are using a Verified PayPal account.
Wait 24 hours and try again.
If none of the above fixes the problem, contact PayPal support to ask for the failure reason. If they can't resolve the problem, contact OctoberCMS using the email link found in the footer of this page. Please include the response from PayPal and your country so we can diagnose the issue.
