A product name should start with a capital letter and be clear for non-professionals. Only Latin characters and numbers are allowed. The length should not exceed 50 characters. Please do not use unreadable or short names. Also, do not insert the version number into the name and do not overuse abbreviations and acronyms.
Product category that defines its purpose:
If your robot or indicator only works with a certain type of account, hedging or netting, specify it in this parameter. This will prevent potential customers from purchasing an obviously inappropriate product.
Select the program type: Expert Advisor, Indicator or Script. This is the physical type of the software. Purchased products are arranged in platform folders according to their type: Experts\Market, Indicators\Market or Scripts\Market.
The market enables the detailed categorization of programs: by strategies used, type of analysis, purpose, etc. Be sure to fill in this field so that potential customers can easily find your product. The specified types can be used to filter the products.
If you want to offer your product for free, enable the corresponding option. Otherwise, specify at least one price:
The minimum price for all the Market products is 30 USD.
The Market service commission of 20% is charged on purchases. If the sold product price is 100 USD, the Seller receives 100 USD - 20% = 80 USD.
Then specify the number of available activations. All programs downloaded from the Market are securely encrypted. This is to protect them from unauthorized use. Encryption is performed so that the product can be run only on the computer from which it is downloaded. The process of product binding to a computer is called activation. Every product on the Market is provided with at least 5 activations: one is used during purchase, the other four activations are additional. A seller may choose to increase the number of available activations. Find out more about the activations in the service rules.
Once you specify all the required data, you will be able to move to the next steps.
Each tab contains recommendations for product description design and links to useful articles. Be sure to review these materials.
Upload an image that will be the logo of your product. You will need images with three different sizes: 200x200, 140x140 and 60x60. This requirement provides proper logo display in all showcases.
If you only have one image sized 200x200, you can select the automated generation of other sizes.
A logo is the face of your product. Prepare an attractive, high-quality image, which reflects the essence of your product and symbolizes your brand. The article Tips for an effective product presentation on the Market contains recommendations on how to prepare products.
Give the details about your product and operation features on the Description tab. Start with general information to immediately give an idea about the product, and then specify the particular operation and configuration features, add recommendations on trading conditions and describe the input parameters. If you cannot prepare a description in Russian, the Market service employees will add a translation for your product.
Add high-quality screenshots of your product that best demonstrate its operation. Please follow the requirements:
Try not to scale the screenshots to preserve the readability of text.
A perfect complement to the product description is a video tutorial. Upload it to YouTube and add a link to it on the Screenshots tab.
On the "Version" tab, upload the file of the product. You can upload only one compiled EX5 file. If a product requires custom indicators, sounds or images, add them to resources.
The uploaded file is instantly sent for automatic validation. This implies the basic quality control:
During the check, the program is run multiple times in the strategy tester with different trading conditions, on different symbols and timeframes.
It usually takes no more than 10 minutes. The check status is shown in the publication progress window:
Check results are displayed in the report.
After passing the automatic checks, your product is ready for publishing. Before publishing, you will need to read and accept the service rules again. In particular, these rules prohibit products containing profit promises.
After publication, your product will become available to users via the MQL5.com website showcase and in MetaTrader trading terminals.
All your products are available under the Market \ My Products section at MQL5.com.
To publish an updated version of the product containing functionality enhancements and fixes, open the "Version" tab and click "New Version".
Upload the product file and describe what has changed in the new version. The history of all changes is available to users in a separate product tab "What's New".
