Minimum changes in child theme I need to make before selling?

Asked on August 2, 2016 in Development.

Let’s say I created and installed child theme and I want to create template to sell it on themeforest. Is there some minimum changes in code that I must do before I sell theme? Can I create theme using just customizer  or do I need to make some code changes before I can sell it? I hope you understand my question.

Hi there,

If your theme is CSS only, you can submit it as a child theme, or you can submit it as a Style Kit.  Themeforest is very hard-core about their acceptance of themes though, so at a minimum it will need several page presets and some customizer controls to ensure folks can change any custom colors. The differences are explained in our child theme guide, which you should go through. Submission requirements are listed at the end under Selling your Themes:
