Okay....I bought "iThemes Exchange", downloaded it (them) and thought that I was ready for the installation.
I was wrong.
To my surprise the package included the zips for "Builder-Depot-5.0.24", "Builder-Market-5.1.24" (I don't know what they are or the difference between them) and 13 additional plugins.
(Of course, none of them are entitled "Exchange")
I've spent a bit of time searching both here and on the web for documentation or a video that would help me with my confusion....and unfortunately...nada (although there were a lot of videos).
If there were just one..or two plugins (and if I could actually identify what was what) maybe I'd just dive in and figure it out as I normally would, but for some reason I'm just not comfortable with that this time.
Of course, I'm sure that there ARE explanations, documentation, instructions and videos avaiable that I haven't found and don't know about......BUT!
At this point I'm truthfully "stumped" about how to really understand what is going on and where and how I actually get started.
Maybe "Exchange" is much more complicated and involved than I thought or anticipated....or maybe I'm not as savvy as I thought I was.

At any rate I need some help......even just to get started with it.

Can someone help me out!

Hi Jim,

iThemes Exchange itself is a free plugin, and can be downloaded from the WordPress.org plugin repository: https://wordpress.org/plugins/ithemes-exchange/

What you purchased are additional premium addons for Exchange, and Builder themes that work well with Exchange,

hope that clarifies,

Thank you for that.
Man, was I confused!
Glad I asked the question before I really attempted anything.

Guess I pretty much jumped and made an "impulse buy" due almost entirely to fact that that I think that Backup Buddy is one of most brilliantly functional pieces of software that I have ever purchased....therefore Exchange must also be brilliant..

Thank again for answering what I guess turned out to be a very uninformed question.
