Why buy from Bootstrapps?

Have you ever had the experience of buying apps that guaranteed to get you more traffic and sales only to find out.

You need another app to get the most out of it? 

You are not alone and I know it can be truly frustrating.

I created Bootstrapps after buying many different apps myself and spending too much money to boot. This is why I would like to make your next app purchase even sweeter.

When you buy anything through at a minimum you are going to get a free WordPress plugin from our database of over 3,000. And sometimes when we have permission from the app maker we can offer an Amazon Gift Card or PayPal cash back rebate. 

You might be asking, “Does this really work?”

The best answer I can give is what other people have said:
