In a nutshell the marketplace works in the following way: All Pimcore extensions (so-called "pimcore-bundle"), which are listed on Packagist, are imported on a regular basis. So, make sure that your bundles are listed there. Base data is imported and can be enriched at the marketplace with additional data such as images, descriptions, links. To enrich a bundle, you have to "claim" it. This connects the bundle with your company.
Set Up Account
Currently, only official Pimcore partner companies can claim a bundle and enrich bundles. Also the review process for quality assurance can only be performed by official Pimcore partners. To become a Pimcore partner, you need to have proven Pimcore expertise.

|Images uploaded to your account help people learn about your products, and also represent your brand. Use only high-quality images for your bundle profiles. Use a combination of screenshots of the admin and front-end, and other images to illustrate what the bundle does, and how it is used. Choose one to be the main image for the bundle, and upload it first. If you want to change the order, delete the images, and upload them again in the correct sequence. The PNG format produces the sharpest screenshots, and supports transparent layers.|
|Extension description||The description appears directly above the screenshots. Write a short and compelling summary of your bundles purpose and features in 2-3 sentences.|
It is very important to collect reviews for your bundles. The , which your extension will already get with the first review, will list your bundle at first position for all customers browsing through the marketplace. Reviewers must be employees of Pimcore partner companies. Once a new version of your bundle is release, the reviewers of the previous version receive an automated notification, to review your bundle again. Until then it will have this symbol . Bundles without reviews are listed last in the marketplace. To get a first review, you can reach out to other Pimcore partners and ask them to check out your cool, new bundle.
To become a reviewer for a bundle you can use the button at the bundle detail page. By clicking this button you approve the bundle. You can only review bundles of other companies (not your own bundles). Make sure to perform a technical review, including a technical examination and sanity check with a focus on documentation, coding structure, performance, scalability, security, and compatibility with the Pimcore core. Once a new version of the bundle is release you will automatically receive an email to review the bundle again. Your name, company and the date, when the review was performed, will show up at the bundle detail page
|Why are there no paid bundles?||Currently all bundles listed at the marketplace must be available in a free version. In the future we are planning to add the possibility to sell bundles too.|
How can I set up a custom "GET IT NOW" URL?
|Please send the URL you would like to use (instead of the default URL, which points to GitHub) to firstname.lastname@example.org. We will then setup this link for you!|
|How often is the GitHub data updated?||Each time, when there is a change in the GitHub files, all data, such as readme/version/date is automatically synched to and updated at Pimcore marketplace. You just need to maintain this information on GitHub. The synchronization takes places once per day.|
|How does the search work?||The search looks up the search term in these 2 fields: "Extension name" and "Extension description"|
