Can you share anything about how many sales you've made? I'm curious how willing developers are to pay for tools like this. I'm working on selling a Chrome extension as well so I'd be super interested in learning more.

Hey seanwilson, I actually made a lot more sales than I expected. $500 Revenue so far. 167 sales :) I'm also planning to write an article, I'll update stats on twitter (@gvrizzo)

By the way, how does the Gumroad integration and license checking work? You get the extension files to download on purchase?

I'm integrating Paddle for payments into my extension. It requires you to implement user accounts or license keys yourself though.

What are you currently doing to handle licensing outside of Paddle? I'm guessing you're building an Electron app?
