Before you Start
Who can use this feature
Users on Any Figma plan can develop plugins for the Figma community
Users must use the Desktop App to develop plugins. Download the Figma Desktop app.
The Desktop App is only available for macOS and Windows.
When you're ready to share your plugin:
- Submit: Submit the plugin to the Figma Community. This allows other Figma users to find and install the plugins you've created.
- Review: Before we list a plugin, it needs to go through our review process. Our goal is to reach a decision within 2 - 5 business days. Learn more about what you need to know in our Review Guidelines article.
- Confirmation/Rejection: We will contact you via your Figma account email to notify you of our decision. If we reject your plugin, we'll send you an email to clarify and provide a brief explanation. You may submit your plugin again for review, after addressing any feedback.
- Publish: We will add your plugin to the Figma Community. You'll see a Published badge next to the plugin. Public plugins have a globe icon, private plugins have a padlock.
Warning! Any attempts to exploit the Plugins API will result in immediate removal. We will also ban you from publishing future plugins to the community. This includes but is not limited to: Providing false information, plagiarism, deceitful manipulation of user files, and theft of data.
There are no restrictions around creating websites or profiles for your plugin. You are free to do as you wish. You cannot display advertisements to users within design Files, or as part of a plugin's UI.
There is no mechanism for monetizing plugins within Figma. However, you can direct users to a third party site to allow for monetization. Learn more about our monetization and advertising policies in our Review Guidelines.
Submit your Plugin
If you're a member of a Figma Organization, you can choose to publish a plugin privately. This allows other members of your Organization to use your plugin. We don't review Private plugins. Learn more about publishing plugins in an Organization below.

Submitted for review, but noticed a mistake? You can still push updates to your plugin during the review process.
Publish Plugins in an Organization
If you're part of a Figma Organization, you can also publish your plugins to the Organization privately.
This allows other members of your Organization to use your plugins, without having to share them with the rest of the Figma Community.
Anyone in the Organization can publish a private plugin to the Organization.
If you want to publish publicly to your own Community profile, you will need to switch to your Personal Space. If you want to retain ownership of the plugin, we recommend publishing a plugin from a personal Figma account.
Organization Admins can also publicly publish plugins to the Organization's Community profile. This will allow members of the wider Figma Community to find and use those plugins.
We list Organization plugins with a blue checkmark to verify their origin:
Share your Plugin
We list published Plugins in the Figma Community. This allows other Figma users to find and install the plugins you've created.
You can share a link to a specific plugin's listing, or to your publisher profile, if you have more than one plugin. You can find the plugin URL in the Share section of your plugin listing:
- URLs for plugin listings are: https://www.figma.com/c/plugin/identifier/name
- URLs for user profiles are: https://www.figma.com/c/user
Tip! Users can use the Twitter and Facebook links to share your plugin on social media.
