Potion Store

rounded border

Potion Store is an open source Ruby on Rails application that powers the Potion Factory Store. The goal is to help new Mac OS X developers get up and running fast without having to sign up with services such as Kagi or Esellerate. The only thing you need to bring is your own license key generator and a PayPal or Google Checkout merchant account.


  • PayPal Website Payments Pro support
  • PayPal Express Checkout support
  • Google Checkout support
  • Administration interface
  • Coupons (generate and accept)
  • "Send lost license"

For more details, read the announcement blog post.


I strongly recommend that you checkout the source code using git and keep tracking the main branch changes.
