Here’s how to list design libraries for sale in the Assistant Pro Community:
Step 1: Sign Up for an Assistant Pro Account
First, you’ll need to create an Assistant Pro account if you don’t already have one. Although we offer a free plan, choosing this option will make all of your libraries free and publicly available in the Community marketplace.
In order to start selling designs, you will need to upgrade to a premium account:
With either our Personal or Team subscriptions, you’ll be able to create both public and private libraries. Plus, you can set a custom price for any public library. However, keep in mind that you can only buy and sell personal libraries, not Team ones.
Once you’ve chosen a plan that meets your needs, click on Get Started. Then, enter your first name, last name, username, email address, and password to register:
Alternatively, you can always upgrade your free account. Simply hit the Upgrade button in the top-right corner of your dashboard and choose a new plan:

Step 2: Apply to Become a Seller
After creating an Assistant Pro account, it’s time to start selling. To do this, you’ll first have to apply to become a seller. On your dashboard, navigate to Account > Seller Account:
On this page, you’ll see an application form. You can choose to set up either an Express or Standard Stripe account. Express accounts allow you to create a new limited Stripe account specifically for Assistant Pro transactions. Standard accounts allow you to connect your existing Stripe account to Assistant Pro. Users located outside the United States must create a Standard account.
Next, enter an email address that sellers can use to contact you. Scroll down and add the country, city, and state where you live.
Then, paste the URL to your business website. You can also add a description to your seller profile. This will introduce you and your work to the Community:

Step 3: Connect Your Stripe Account
Next, Assistant Pro will ask you to connect to Stripe. This payment platform ensures that all your sales are secure transactions.
After submitting your Seller application, enter an email address and mobile phone number for your Stripe account:
You’ll have to confirm your phone number with a verification code. Then, tell Stripe whether you’re a freelancer, company, or non-profit organization:
To verify your details, fill out your name, email address, and date of birth. Stripe will also need your home address and phone number:

Step 4: Create a Community Library and List Your Designs For Sale
Now that you’ve set up a seller account with Assistant Pro, you can start creating and selling your content. On your dashboard, click on Create Library and give it a name:
To allow customers to easily find certain items within large libraries, consider adding collections. These are more specific categories that will help to organize the library.
For example, you might create a collection for backgrounds or graphics:
Once your library is ready to sell, click on the Settings tab. We recommend adding an eye-catching featured image and title to encourage users to open and purchase the library:
In the description, you can mention what tools you used to design the content. For example, you might want to explain that your templates are best used with a page builder like Beaver Builder or the Block Editor.
Next, make sure the Visibility setting is set to Public. Under For sale, choose Yes. Finally, set a price:
Note that sellers have the opportunity to set their own pricing within a minimum and recommended price range depending on the asset(s) being sold. Please review our pricing guidelines and terms and conditions before listing your library.
Rather than relying on individual projects for income, you could start listing your designs for sale on a marketplace like the Assistant Pro Community. Here, you’ll be able to sell entire libraries that include your custom WordPress templates, vector files, and more.
