Sometimes we receive questions from our clients about "Why is this extension free?" and every time they make our day. Recently we’ve got that kind of message and decided to write this article.

Hi.....please tell me why this plugin is free?
Why not ask at least $50?
We wanna use this blog, but we must be sure its not crappy coded!
This will be installed by {censored} so if no good code they will see it.

I really wonder why its free, cause i see it has so many options...why free why???

- A customer agreed to share this message without mentioning his name.

There are a few reasons why all Magefan extensions are free:

  1. At 2015 we started our company up as a nonprofit organization. Firstly, the Magefan Blog Extension was a training project which, afterwards, evolved into one of the exciting extensions for Magento 2 on the market. So, we didn't want to disappoint our customers and ask them to pay.
  2. We like Open Source and we are convinced that the best software should be open and free.
  3. We use the extensions on our own website too, so why not share and extend features together.
  4. We do not make money on selling extensions. Our field of activity is the maintenance of Magento 1 & Magento 2 shops and providing custom development solutions.

 

You can always download our extensions free of charge from our website or GitHub.

 

Sincerely yours,
Magefan team.
