Binpress, site to sell your software on, curated

By Vasudev Ram

Binpress is a site where you can sell your software.

Excerpt from home page of the site:

[ Binpress is a marketplace for source-code where software developers can buy and sell source-code from each other. Our goal is to create a market complimentary to free open-source, in which professional developers have an incentive to produce and distribute professional, tested, production quality code. Software ventures and development projects can purchase feature-sized code packages, reducing time and costs and allowing them to focus on the unique problem they are trying to solve. ]

Got to know of Binpress via a comment (by one of its founders) on this Fred Wilson post:

Free Software, Paid Support

They charge 30% commission like the Apple store, but the agreement is non-exclusive - you are free to also sell your software via your own site and/or other marketplaces. They give some justifications for why they charge 30%.
