I have been pending a release for my first bitbucket cloud app for over two months now, in the wait of Atlassian to give a reasonable solution forward. Optimal would have been to get a release date of PvA but that seems still unreasonable.
My hope for two months has been to get PvV status, but that also seems impossible although there are tens of apps with this status right now.
This unclarity is stopping me from going forward with the cloud development of our other apps. If they have to be released as free apps it’s not worth the effort.
Right now Atlassian support is telling me to “Release as Free then tell customers that it’s actually a paid app in your documentation”. I think this will give a very bad user experience as the expectations from customer for an app marked as Free by Atlassian would be that it’s… free!
TL;DR - While PvA is not available, please allow marketplace vendors to mark Bitbucket Cloud Apps as Paid via Vendor to avoid tricking the customers into installing an addon believing it is free.
