The Creator Marketplace team has been deeply focused on making the marketplace safer and easier to navigate. As we continue to build on those initiatives, we want to address another key focus for our team: How can creators build sustainable businesses within the marketplace?
Starting today, we will be inviting hundreds of creators to join the Plugin Marketplace Program and will open up to all plugin contributors in the coming months. Based on our learnings from our last two years of experimentation, we are implementing a minimum price for paid plugins. Today, developers are able to list plugins for free or for a price. While they continue to be able to list items for free, we will be introducing a price floor of 100 Robux for priced plugins. Plugins are critical tools for developer success, and we believe that this change will better allow creators to fairly price their tools and re-invest in improving these assets for the community.
The minimum price of 100 Robux will apply to all new paid plugins added to the Creator Marketplace. For plugins that are currently priced between 1 and 99 Robux, the minimum price will go into effect after two weeks or upon updating your asset. On August 25, any remaining plugins between 1 and 99 Robux will be automatically updated to the 100 Robux minimum.
Plugins continue to push the boundaries of the platform and enable creators to do amazing work. We are actively investigating further improvements to help this community grow, and this expansion of the program is just the start. We look forward to seeing you all continue to innovate and change the future of experience development!
