We are pleased to announce the grand opening of the Certified Marketplace!

Clients can choose between certified and non-certified products. Choosing a certified product allows clients to rest assured that the product has been tested to install on a fresh SocialEngine site while producing no errors. Reviews are greatly appreciated on all products in order to encourage experts to make more!

Certified listings show which versions are supported and a revision history for the plugin. All Certified plugins are also required to have support from the expert per their support terms. Only products that work in current SocialEngine releases (4.9.3 and up) can be certified. This should help clients to easily find products that work in new releases. We also require that a certified product be updated within 30 days of SocialEngine releases in order to help clients to upgrade their sites faster. Major version releases will require re-certification testing to ensure they still work.

Certified products are only found at our marketplace. Though experts can still sell the same products from their sites, those will not be the certified versions and are untested.

The Certified Marketplace allows experts to have better exposure for their certified listings as we’ve included these listings in the clients’ admin panel. This makes it easier for clients to find great new products to purchase as well!

We’ll include more promotional opportunities for certified products soon. This can include blog posts, community posts, social media posts, paid sponsor listings, better position in the marketplace for optimal viewing, and more. If you’re a SocialEngine Expert or want to be one, now’s the time to get on board with the Certified Marketplace!

Please note that all terms of service and submission guidelines continue to be updated as our marketplace improves. All experts and clients are encouraged to read the updated documents.

We are so excited to bring you the new certified marketplace! We welcome all feedback on the feedback section of our community.

Thank you all for your feedback that helped bring this Certified Marketplace to fruition. More improvements will be coming so stay tuned!

With Appreciation,
The SocialEngine Team
