    Dear reader,

Aldonio.com is an online webstore where you, the programmer, can sell add-ins, add-ons, extensions or macro's for Microsoft Office, Microsoft Server and even AutoDesk AutoCAD, since these extensions are created in Visual Basic (for Applications).

    Selling your code is as easy as pie. All you need to do is to create a profile on the site. Then upload your code as a zip-file to the online store, determine the cost price and start selling!

    Press Release

    Microsoft Add-In Marketplace Opens its Doors to Programmers and Customers Who Need Extensions

    Aldonio.com connects sellers of add-ons, add-ins and macros for Microsoft Office and Server products with interested buyers.

    Programmers who love to code, but hate to sell, now have a place to promote their Microsoft Office add-ins, add-ons and macros for Office and Server products. Aldonio.com is an online storefront that brings entrepreneurial programmers together with the people who need to extend the usability of programs like Access, Excel, PowerPoint, Publisher, Outlook, SharePoint, Exchange and various other Microsoft-based products. The newly launched site is the brainchild of self-professed computer nerd, Jan de Wit.

    While there are a variety of marketplaces for buyers of apps, scripts and themes, the space for Microsoft add-ins has been sparse. There were no central locations where buyers could find a variety of Microsoft extensions in one place, explained De Wit. That is the main reason why I wanted to bring this site to life. Buyers do not want to spend hours looking for the exact extensions they need and programmers simply want to sell their self-created work with as little headache as possible. Aldonio.com bridges that gap.

    There is no up-front cost for programmers to add their Microsoft extensions. Once a programmer registers as a seller, they may upload as many as they like. Each time a customer purchases one of the extensions, a commission gets deducted and the remainder of the money is put into the programmers account. Programmers who register their extensions will pay a 15 percent commission on each sale. Programmers are paid after the sale.

    Extension buyers will receive their items immediately upon ordering. Everything is downloadable directly from the Aldonio.com website, added de Wit. Although registration is necessary for purchasing an extension, visitors to the site are free to browse without signing up.

    Programmers can learn more about Aldonio.com or sign up to sell their extensions by Aldonio.com

    It looks like really nice marketplace but is it better to sell your apps through some simple tools like SellboxHQ.com and collect most revenues to your own account?

    Re: New: Programmers Marketplace

    Thank you for you reply, Daniula.

    I think that these two sites can not be compared.

    Aldonio.com offers you, the seller, not only a place where you can sell your homemade code, but the seller/programmer also is able to blog about the product(s) he is selling and this information will be delivered to the mailinglist and the social media channels.

    You can also make and edit your own product information. Payments are done by Paypal which is a reliabel partner. Sellboxhq.com is a bit confusing to me. I would like to see what they sell. But all I can find is a link to my own dropbox. Would you give a stranger entrance to your dropbox without knowing their intentions?
