We started with a single vision: to help the Word-Press community by empowering them with enterprise-level tools at a franction of the cost.

Joined The Elite Author's Club
On 4 July, exactly 2 years from signing the first partership agreement our team achieved what every Envato author dreams, which is to become an Elite Author by crossing $75K in sales. Hurray! We also received a lot of cool stuff in mail.
Elite - Level 2 - $125K Milestone
On 22 August, we reached our next milestone, which was Level-2 as an Elite Author by crossing $125K in sales. We were buzzing with excitement as more cool stuff got delivered to us.
Elite - Level 3 - $250K Milestone
On 12 January, in 6 months of achieving level-2 we doubled the the numbers in sales by cross $250K and reached our next milestone. Coincidentally that is also the birthday of one of our founders. WooHoo! The cool stuff we received got better.
Elite - Level 4 - $500K Milestone
On 24 December, in 12 months of achieving level-3 we again doubled the the numbers in sales by cross $500K and reached our next BIG milestone. We couldn't believe we got here so fast.
Elite - Level 5 - $750K Milestone
On 21 August, in exactly 2 years from achieving level-2 we sextuple(That just means an increase of sixfold, and has nothing to do with what your dirty mind might think) the numbers by crossing $750K in sales and reached our next milestone which placed us one level away from reaching the legendary Power Elite status.
Ya! ListingPro is on track to become a Million Dollar baby by end of 2019.
