Theme Development for Themeforest

Hello.. I was wondering if anyone has experience developing wordpress themes for themeforest. My question here is do you use any kind of framework or plugin like Advance Custom Fields or Easy Custom Post Type.

Any advice in this field would be great... On the other hand is it profitable?

Thanks a lot!

I've never sold themes on Envato; I know there are guidelines to tests that your themes must pass to be sold. I believe that plugins have to be baked into your theme, meaning you can't make money by bundling someone elses plugins with your themes.

For testing themes to see if they are ready for distribution on a marketplace like Envato, here are some links I came up with:






You can definitely make money on Envato, but will need to test and update your themes as WordPress updates. Best of luck!
