Monetize a Template

InstaWP allows you to make money by monetizing a template that can be shared publicly on the internet with anyone. To do that, you can follow the below steps:

Step 1: Navigate to the template page.

Step 2: Click on the Three dots and select the Monetize option corresponding to the template for which you want to monetize.

Note: If you want the users to pay for the shared template when they create a site, you must enter the price (in dollars) of your template.

Step 5: After entering the relevant price, click on the save button.

Then, you will see a success message on your screen.

Note: If the user is using premium themes or plugins on some of their templates, they must purchase a multi-site licence from the plugin vendor in order to transfer it to other users who create sites using your shared template.

Test your monetized shared template

Step 1: Click on the Share button alongside the Preview button.

Step 2: Click on the Copy Link button to copy the shared template URL.

Step 3: Paste the copied link into the new tab or in incognito mode.

Further, you can add image (i.e. site cover photo) from the gallery option or change the appearance of your template landing page. For more information, please refer to the Branding document.

After accessing the template landing page the user can create their new WordPress staging site by your shared template. To do that, you can follow the below steps:

Note: In your InstaWP account, "Staging Sites" will count as a limit for all kind of active sites, including shared template sites (created by other users).

Step 1: Click on the Buy now button to proceed further.

This page will request the user's name, email address, credit card details and permission to subscribe to the newsletter in accordance with the privacy policies.

Note: If the user is new and does not already have an InstaWP account, the email address they input here will generate one for them along with the new WordPress staging site created using your shared template.

Step 2: After that, click on the Purchase Site button.

Then, you will navigate to a new window with the message “Your new WordPress website is ready!” alongside with website URL and your login credentials.
