Trial period for marketplace add-ons.
My thought is to quit wasting time coding blocks myself and using marketplace applications for my customers. Is there a possibility of adding a trial period to add-ons before they have to be purchased? Otherwise, I would have to buy a copy of every add-on that I have no familiarity with which that may be relevant to each project that I am working on and hope that my client accepts their functionality.
The problem with a trial period for marketplace items is that it would be much too easy to keep them and never pay for them (of course, this wouldn't matter for the free items).
I have a number of themes and addons in the marketplace - some paid, some free. Understandably, there is a risk to buying a paid addon, only to find out it may not be what you needed. The reason the refund policy is rather vague is because if you buy the license, you also have access to the source code, and the same idea applies if there would be a trial period, and so there is risk to me as a developer to never see any benefit.
If you aren't seeing what you are looking for in the Live Demo's, use the "Get Support" option and post a Sales question.
Plus, you could contact the developer directly and request a private demo, or perhaps login access to the live demo.
I just set up a test environment and loaded 5.7 into it and will use it to check out Vivid's functionality while waiting for eCommerce to be ready. What I will be looking for is a gateway to PayPal and a gateway package that is easily adaptive to most clearing houses.
