Our OpenCart category has been steadily growing and we’ve decided that it is time to change the pricing structure to properly reflect the differences in item complexity. After much discussion we’ve developed a new pricing guideline that captures the varying complexity and functionality and will help our review team apply a more consistent set of pricing criteria to this category.
OpenCart pricing is now separated into 3 bands, based primarily on complexity:
$20 – Mobile or simple themes
$25-30 - Standard themes
$35-40 - Themes with advanced functionality.*
The bands provide some discretion for minor variations in complexity and feature set, based on the reviewer’s judgement.
*For example: admin panel skin, responsive design, multiple home, product and category layouts/views, custom modules, integration with popular modules, multiple color schemes or multi-store support.
