Look, it’s a bird! No, it’s a plane! Wait no, it’s Superman’s younger, slightly effeminate cousin, the Wonder Themes mascot!
WonderThemes is a new WordPress theme marketplace and community currently in an invite-only bug-hunting beta. This new marketplace is offering 80% (or, up to 95%) payout to authors selling their themes there. You can poke around the site to see more, but buying and selling themes is still restricted to accepted beta users.
While WonderThemes is an open marketplace, they are also providing their own WonderFlux theme framework that developers can use to build their themes. Child themes from any other framework are also accepted, as well as non-framework themes. Michael Kimb Jones is behind the marketplace, and you can follow him on Twitter at @mkjones. His partner Jonny Allbut is the developer behind the new framework, and can be followed on Twitter at @jonnyauk.
What do you think of this new beta marketplace? Is it the ideal marketplace-meets-framework concept? Will you give it a shot?
