Looking to monetize your extension?

Bits monetization enables you to earn revenue within your extension. Our self-service product catalog lets developers create, manage, delete and set pricing for all Bits-enabled extensions.

Create products within the Developer Rig.

The “Manage Bits Products” tab within the Rig can be used to set all product SKUs that you refer to in your extension code.
