“Not only does the Bluehost Marketplace make it easier for customers to discover themes and WooCommerce plugins without needing to leave the Bluehost dashboard, but it also benefits theme developers and sellers looking to expand their audience,” said Zaheer. “We will continue to grow the marketplace and provide opportunities for developers to sell their themes or plugins, natively, within Bluehost.”
