Freemius review by Christoph A.

What do you like best?

Freemius was very easy to integrate into our own software and offers everything we need out of the box. Many features are simply not available from other providers, and the share of the earnings for the author is excellent compared to competitors. Everything is optimized into tiny details, and the people at Freemius are quick and efficient in their support.

What do you dislike?

Not much to dislike. It would be great to have an easy option (maybe where you call the SDK) to turn off advertising for the premium/trial appearing on parts of the admin back end that are not related to our software.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We are selling a WordPress plugin in a freemium model. Freemius is providing the infrastructure.

If you are a Wordpress plug-in developer and you use the Freemium model then I would certainly recommend Freemius!

Collecting user data for you plug-in, increasing your conversion ratio from your free users, managing licenses. We only have to focus on development and marketing. Al the administrative proces is fully automated thanks to Freemius

"Freemius is Fantastic!"

What do you like best?

I'm brand new to the premium WordPress plugin game, and Freemius has been great and providing advice on pricing strategies, etc. Also, one thing I wasn't looking forward to was managing a plugin store and dealing with payments and refunds and auto upgrades, etc, and Freemius has taken the headache out of all that, which allows me to focus on building my plugins.

What do you dislike?

I haven't really come across any downsides quite yet. I'm sure, like with anything, I will find something I don't like over time, but I'm very pleased with Freemius right now.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

If you are selling WordPress plugins or themes, I cannot recommend Freemius enough. They've really eased the process of becoming a premium plugin developer.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Freemius takes care of the sales side of things, handling payments, dealing with refunds, tracking plugin activations, collecting user feedback upon deactivation, etc. A lot of things I don't think I would have been able to easily accomplish on my own. Freemius frees up a lot of my time to work on my plugin and not worry about the logistics of selling and delivering the assets.
