CodeCanyon Review

Once you entered on the website at CodeCanyon you can see that there are available almost 16000 scripts, snippets, frameworks and other web resources from $1 created in PHP, JavaScript, ASP.Net, HTML5, CSS and much more.

Under these brief stats, you have a search. Here you can type exactly what you want. Above you can see featured items, new ones, free ones. In the end, you can see featured author together with the latest news.

Additionally, you can browse popular items, top new items or view more featured items, all new items, popular files or the featured author’s portfolio.

Scripts on CodeCanyon are sorted in all items, PHP scripts, WordPress, eCommerce, JavaScript, CSS, Mobile, HTML5, Skins, WP Themes, Plugins and More. They can be seen on the search page or either using the category menu.

At the search you can sort items by the date they were publicized, after trend or after best seller. Youcan sort them after best rate and price, either low to high or high to low as well. Also, you can search after the date where you have the option any date, in the last year, in the last month, in the last week or on the last day followed by the number of scripts that are available to the specific criteria.

The results can be viewed either in grid or list view. To refine your results you can use the left sidebar. There you can choose the category, the tags, the price range, the number of sales, the rating, the software versions and the compatibility.

If you select, for example, the WordPress category, the WooCommerce tag and the price range from $7 to $30, you will have 20 pages of results.

Once you decided about one script such as the WooDonation WP Plugin. You enter its page and you can see details about the selected script. The details show live preview, screenshots and the number of support months. You can also read there about the author and some description.

You can add it to favorites or add to the collection. Social media is also available via sharing to Facebook, Google Plus, Twitter, and Pinterest. You can see prices for different licenses or extend the support for prices.

There are available sections with comments and support where you can ask for more help. And you can also see at the item details section when was the item created and updated. It shows which browsers are compatible with it and what types of files are included. The tags and the software versions compatibility are also shown on the page.

If you reconsider and want another script you just go back. Else you add to the cart or directly press the buy now button. There you need to enter your bank credentials and buy the item.

The profile section of CodeCanyon is where you find your bought items. You can access it pressing on your username on the top right of the website. It is near the amount of money you have on your Envato account and near the cart symbol.

Once you pressed on your username you can see your account option starting with the Dashboard tab. It is actually the author dashboard where you can upload your first item. There you can get help about upload and other things too.

The next tab is the profile one where you can see your username, avatar, the number of sales and followers, buyer ratings, country, badges and other membership information.

At the settings tab, you can update your personal information such as billing information, profile, badges, and email updates, invoice and credit note, item support settings, item support vacations, author teams, featured item, exclusivity of your items, item licenses, tax information, social networks and API keys.

At the following tab, you can see the authors which you follow together with their avatar. You can find there an unfollow button, badges, name, the number of items and followers, the number of sales and ratings.

The hidden items are for your own portfolio if you are an author, here you can see items you hide.

At the downloads tab, you have access to all your bought scripts from the Envato Market, not just CodeCanyon. So your last purchased should be here available for download.

And also, if it is a script you can get hosting if it is a theme you can ask for help for installing for $50 and also you can see the license and the ratings.

If you have too many of them you can filter them after marketplace and purchased date, but also after their name. Here you can check or uncheck if you want to be notified by email if an item is updated.

At the review tab, you should see ratings and reviews for any of your items. But if you aren’t an author this will be a blank tab.

For the withdrawal tab, you can see pending withdrawals of your money which came by selling items. Also there is the earnings tab what helps you to see stats about your revenue by all time, by year or month. The last tab is statement where you can see sales and referral earnings over the last 30 days or time frame choose by you.

In the end, I can assure you that CodeCanyon is one of the safest websites.  From there you can buy scripts of any kind and they even offer one free each month. If you want to buy high-quality scripts this is the place to go. You can deposit specific amounts of money between $20 and $500 using PayPal, Visa, Master Card and so one. I highly recommend this marketplace!
