Getting Started with Freemius

Please accept our warmest welcome to Freemius!

You’re probably here because you’re interested in selling software products such as SaaS, WordPress plugins or themes through Freemius.

Our goal is to help your business grow as much as possible by eliminating all the complexities of licensing, payments, subscriptions, and more from selling your software products, leaving you with more time to focus on product development and marketing.

We believe in our platform 200% and are extremely proud of the results we achieve for various software businesses. Many of the makers on our platform end up seeing 2X (or greater) increases in revenue within just one year after starting to sell with Freemius because of all the automated tools we offer in the Developer Dashboard, like Cart Abandonment Recovery (which is just the tip of the iceberg!).

We constantly optimize all aspects of the platform to maximize conversion rates and increase your sales, so you don’t have to! Why? We only make money when you make money, so we genuinely care about the success of your business, and we do our best to help you increase your sales.

This guide is intended to quickly get you up to speed getting started with Freemius and integrating our SDK into your digital product(s).

When you’re ready, feel free to join our DEV Slack community. You can find an invitation in the SDK Integration section of the Developer Dashboard after registering an account and creating your first product.

This Freemius Slack is an invite-only community of 1,500+ hundreds of other product makers just like you who are all learning and sharing ideas about the best practices for growing their product businesses. You can tap into the #integration and #community-support channels to ask questions about integrating your product and using the platform.
