Is there any possible way to market your PowerApp?

Is there any practical way to market a powerapp?  The way this is structured, I would see no way to do it.  I would love to develop something, then be able to sell it.  I just dont see any way its possible.

Only if you work for a consultancy firm, and the app is sold as an off-the-shelf product with long term support (feature releases etc). I doubt it would work as a freelancer if I'm honest!

Yea, that would be the only way.  Every implementation would be a one-off.  Very expensive support.  Its my estimation at that level, people will end up purchasing a product that is written in a more conventional way.  I'm thinking of ERP/MRP systems for manufacturing companies.  Plus, if you end up getting hit by a bus, there is no other firm that would be able to pickup where you left off.  Seems like a high risk notion from the customer point of view.

Exactly that! It works the same way in pro dev - you can freelance all you want, but the likelihood of being able to build something and sell it off as a 'ready' product are low because there'll always be a requirement for long term maintenance and support, and as a one-man party you wouldn't be able to accommodate that (at least I don't think so). And like you said - there's always a risk of being hit by a bus!

Hi,

 

As of today, only Model-Driven apps or apps for Teams. Also, you can enroll for the developer program: Developer Program | Microsoft 365 Dev Center.

 

Regards.
