Please try making the purchase from your phone. Sometimes the mobile version of PayPal works better than the desktop version. Hopefully support will be in contact with you soon to resolve the issue.

Hey Envato!

You guys have been getting a hammering on the forums lately. So I’m just dropping in to let you know that you’re still awesome and thanks for everything and keep up the great work!

It has been four years since my last Thank You thread, so here’s another one :)

Thank You

CodeCanyon and ThemeForest have improved my life beyond imagination. I do not know where I would be without you guys (chained to a desk in a high rise cubical?).

It has (and continues) to be an amazing ride, ever since making that very first sale on the 18th of June 2009. I will never forget the $2 I made off that first $5 sale – I knew something big was starting.

Over the years I have seen a mind blowing number of changes, new features and improvements. I can only imagine what else has gone on behind the scenes.

Putting together a quick list of some memorable moments and things that have been made possible by selling on the marketplaces:

  • When the author rates were increased from 40%-70% to 50%-70%, and also made a lot more achievable. (here’s a history for those who don’t know)
  • Celebrating the Gold Paw (this was back when YAY threads were cool)
  • When CodeCanyon split from ThemeForest
  • Becomming a volunteer moderator
  • Receiving surprise Envato swag in the mail
  • Getting new badges (I really think this is the most exciting thing ever haha – maybe I’m a little weird)
  • Getting engaged and married
  • Building cool gadgets based on the Envato API: (I have another one in the works)
  • Travelling around Australia and working from a caravan
  • Having two kids (I wonder how many babies have been made possible with Envato?)
  • Working from home close to my family
  • And of course the handful of forum members who have made my life entertaining (yes working from home sometimes the forums are the only social life I get – I should get out more)
So just to sum up, you guys and girls rock. Try to look past the recent forum negativity and keep going strong.

When I ever get back down to Melbourne I’ll come say hi and thank you in person :)

Unfortunately at this stage there is no “Unlimited Use” license on CodeCanyon.

An individual regular license will be required for each “installation”, so one license per plugin per customer.

You can charge the customer whatever you like for the product. You cannot distribute the plugins as-is, but you can install/set them up for the customers.

It’s best to contact envato support as they have a dedicated team of license gurus who can help, they can also assist with bulk purchases. http://support.envato.com/

Best of luck with the proejct,
dtbaker

Almost 60% of my sales were through Paypal.

Based on a 50% commission rate to make it easier:

If 60% of 1000 sales had the extra $2 fee (600 sales), you would have received $600 extra in commission from that old fee.

Now that the item prices have been raised and the fee has been removed, you will receive extra commission on every sale. So if your item has a $2 price increase, and you sell 1000 copies again, you will now be receiving an extra $1000.

So in this example, after the recent price rise and fee removal we’re actually $400 better off.

I had a good experience with http://influx.com a while ago. They might have a smaller plan if 180 emails a month is too much (but with a couple of back and forward messages per ticket it quickly adds up). Anywho they have a free trial if you’re interested.

Even it was a range of between + or – 2 hours it would be better than nothing.
An estimated review time that have an error margin of two hours? :D :D :D

Haha

Heya dtbaker. If you haven’t figured it out already, it was because of all the changes we made to the fee breakdown this week :) Here’s some more information on some of the API changes that were done. Hope that helps!

Cheers :) yer figured that. Posted this problem before reading the announcement.

It’s a little strange we cannot see the “total sale” amount in the CSV file any more. This makes it impossible for us to calculate our “total overall sales” value.

The Buyer Services Blog Post should go some way to clarifying things, although to clear up any confusion, I’ll run through a typical example:

Let’s begin with a Theme, available for $58:

1) Buyer Commits to purchase, pays $58
2) Envato immediately takes a 20% buyer fee ($11.60), so $46.40 is left over
3) This is now shared between Envato and you (the Author)

Previously you’d earn a “commission” that went on a sliding scale from 50%-70% depending on how much you sold. Now we hand you everything that’s left over after the buyer fee, then you pay a small “platform fee” to Envato. That platform fee is on a sliding scale of 37.5%-12.5% . The more you sell, the smaller fee you pay Envato.

So to clarify, you’re elite so your commission was previously 70% . We used to simply give you 70% of the total transaction cost and say “There you go, that’s yours to keep” . Now we say “Here’s everything that’s left over after the buyer fee, and you need to pay us 12.5% of that, then the rest of that is yours” .

So, how does this stack up in numbers?

Previously:

1) $58 sale
2) $58×70% commission = $40.60 (your net earnings)
3) Envato keeps whatever is left over

Now:

1) $58 sale
2) Envato immediately takes a 20% buyer fee ($11.60), so $46.40 is left over
3) You pay 12.5% platform fee to Envato ($46.40 * 12.5% = $5.80)
4) $46.40 – $5.80 = $40.60 (your net earnings)
4) Envato keeps the buyer fee + platform fee

As you can see, in the above case the end earnings don’t change on a $58 sale. Just that the money moves around a bit differently. Any changes to Author earnings will be minimal, and will mostly affect non-exclusive Authors who’ll earn 3% more than before, or those who accounted for receiving a cut of the handling fee (formerly “surcharge”) that Authors will no longer benefit from.

I suppose some of the confusion comes down to the fact we’re all used to associating high percentages with higher earnings, whereas now a low percentage yields higher earnings :grin:
