I’m Grace, the Product Manager at Bubble leading the team supporting our Bubble ecosystem. I’m excited to share that we’ve just released a revamp to our templates marketplace to make it easier for users to find their desired template and for creators to become more discoverable.
In this redesign, you can now more quickly filter by price, experience, and category. We’ve added a few popular categories including: AI, SaaS, Chat, Real Estate, Booking, Finance, and Mobile. You can also sort by: most installed, highest rated, price (high to low), price (low to high), newest, and oldest.
Couldn’t agree more. 70% the templates on the marketplace are junk already and the management of them is really bad. I can imagine bubble has lost good amount of potential clients because of bad marketplace management and new clients getting templates that are just thrown together with awful optimization and missing/unfunctional features for profit.
At the $500 price point you’re just going to encourage more of those type of behaviors.
My pet peeve is paid templates with no privacy rules marketed as ready to go It would be really nice if there was an objective template grade that Bubble assigns to templates based on how it’s set up / maintainable / secure etc but I do understand the challenges of implementing such a system. This is a good update though.
Hi, jumping in to respond We hear you – this project aimed to make templates more easily discoverable, but we do have an upcoming project to address template quality, where we plan on addressing the feedback you’ve mentioned!
Thank you for small improvements here and there regarding to marketplace.
Quick question when will the marketplace open worldwide so all the developers can “sell” templates not just release them?
Currently pretty much only being a US developer/publisher benefits from being a seller (yeah, yeah it’s all about Stripe I know) on the marketplace (either templates or plugins) but other 150+ countries as well would like to be able to have the option to sell their product/idea through the marketplace and receive the payout directly. Maybe adding other options that work globally for payouts to get paid as sellers, now this - would be a great feature for the marketplace.
