Is there good money to be made in templates for OSComm and other site scripts?
I've made heavy modification to premade scripts in the past, and I find it pretty easy. However, at my current internship, I only get paid about $7.00 an hour (despite the work I do, which ranges from making sites standard compliant to CGI processing to generate a PDF from form input and send as an email attachment [ and no, I didn't use crappy formmail for it either.. . quit using that people!!] ).
Anyway, I recently heard that people pay alot for templates for scripts like OSComm... these are easy for me to design and teke me probably a day max (and that's just to fine tune everything). Just curious if there's good supplemental money in selling *GOOD* OSComm templates?

Now, if the script costs money to use, then yes, I could see somebody paying for the modifications they need as well.
I have nothing to back this up, just my train-of-thought on the subject.
Explain your problem instead of asking how to do what you decided was the solution.

yeah, I was just curious... I'm thinking of making a few really good ones for fun and see what response I get from them... imo OSCommerce's default layout is a bit bland, and I think alot of people would perfer not to have a site cloned off others. I seen some really ****ty ones sold for $249 a pop, but hey, if someone buys a few for even $30, it's worth it.
