| Selling re-usable controls|
I was working on creating an iPhone-optimized site in ASP.Net and wanted to create some HTML 5 controls like input type="tel" to use the extra features of Mobile Safari and found little to no documentation to guide me. I made a set of classes that would render these as asp controls so that I could access the properties in postbacks and codebehind and figured that it might fill a gap until MS releases something for Visual Studio.
I want to sell this, and thought I'd ask others about their experiences. I looked first to places where I have bought other tools like ComponentSource.com and tucows.com. Component Source seems a little bit steep with a $500 startup fee and then $1000 / year marketing fee. that's not to say that those figures are bad, it's just this is definitely a sideline to my true bread and butter. I'm having trouble getting login info from tucows.
Another option is putting up a site for these tools and then using a third-party checkout. I would appreciate any input as to where to sell, and possibly some thoughts on pricing. I went a little light on describing the features so I won't sound like a spambot. I read Joel on Software about pricing, and came away with no real idea.
