Akaunting: Accounting App Store for small businessReading Time: 2 minutes
Woot Woot! The wait is over. Today, we’re excited to open the Accounting App Store by Akaunting – the only free, online, open-source accounting software.
It has been almost two months since we released the first version, and we’ve received enormous interest in Akaunting, especially from the userbase of the framework that Akaunting uses, Laravel (one of the best PHP frameworks with a large user base).
While we firmly believe that Akaunting is the best free accounting software out there, we know that it’s not perfect, just like everything in the real world. However, we keep improving to serve users more features to ease their everyday bookkeeping needs.
Akaunting ships with core accounting tools needed to manage small business finances. For more features, instead of creating bloated software by adding all of them to the core, we created a modular structure that will allow easy extension of features.
Accounting App Store
So what are these apps for? Everything!
A variety of businesses use accounting software. For example, an e-commerce app like WooCommerce can ease the synchronization of products, customers, and orders to Akaunting.
Akaunting is a global project with users from all over the world (over 100 countries), which requires hundreds of local and international payment gateways.
Furthermore, an app may add extra handy or accounting features to the system; it doesn’t have to be integrated with another platform.
As you know from other App stores (Apple, Google), they are digital distribution platforms for purchasing and installing 3rd party applications to software.
The app store is accessible from any Akaunting software installation and our site. You can purchase, install, enable, and uninstall apps with one click. Simplicity is the goal.
To access the app store from your Akaunting software installation;
- Purchase an app and Install
- Create an API token and enter it when required.
That’s the bridge between the software and the site.
You can get Apps under a yearly subscription plan. Their price is generally between $19 and $99 per year.
Users can always cancel their subscriptions from the dashboard. In such a case, they can continue to use the app but can’t get further support and updates.
We’ve tried to create a fair system for both users and developers.
Accounting App Store Commission
The commission rate is 70% of each sale, meaning you get 70%, and Akaunting company keeps 30%.
If you reach $20K in total sales, you get 80% of all new earnings, and Akaunting company keeps 20%.
Developers receive payment at the end of each month after reaching $100.
First, followers/supporters are always important, so we’ve created a special commission for registered developers and added one app within the first month from today (until 2017-12-10).
Their commission rate will be 90% for six months.
Akaunting company will keep just 10% to handle the money transfer costs. Join right now, and don’t miss this special commission rate.
