Hey all! I developed a Google Sheet with an Script that performs some very basic yet tedious operations in bulk. I would like to sell it as I bumped into this issue 3 times in 3 different companies, so someone else might find it useful.
I was wondering if anyone has some experience into this and is willing to share their knowlegde.

Thank you!

@bernard may have some experience with this, if I recall.

This is as good of a place as any to mention in, but I randomly ran into a guy selling spreadsheets on Etsy, which I found interesting. "Digital Makers", I guess.

Yes, I've sold some spreadsheets and Google scripts, but I generally don't think it's a good idea, unless you create a Google Sheet plugin from the script.

If you sell it as a script, you have no way of updating and you'll have various issues with permissions and people not being able to make it work.

If you do sell it, make sure to add a few hours of support on top of the price, because you'll have people emailing you a lot.

@bernard Thank you for the wise words. My Script is embedded in a given Spreadsheet, so I will sell this as is, with the option of some tweaks (if required). May I ask what venue did you use to sell it and advertise it? I am also more than happy to sell it "in clear" so if people wants to tweak it or check I am not doing nasty business, they will be happy to do so.
