with this new pricing system.. Authors will derive no revenue from Handling Fees.. the Handling fee is the $2 that buyers pay when they click On ‘buy now’ transactions (i.e. not using prepaid credit).. and for someone selling low price items like me “mostly flyers for $6”... it was an extra $1.40 which is about %22 increase in revenue for each sale that was done this way..

and now envato decided that they are bringing it down to $1 “which is fine”, so now Envato gets their $1 from handling fees, and the authors dont.. so its more like they are offering a better price on the account of Authors.. and i find that a bit frustrating..

at the end of the day.. I’m really not a fan of this new pricing structure..

Is it me or I seen an Increase or People here on GR Ripping other Authors work just to try to make an easy buck. ?? and envato not doing Nothing About it .

every day I see few new authors just Ripping Other Authors work off. like its ok.

Thing I don’t Get is . Do these new authors know that everything is the same price ? Example : Why will you buy a pair Fake Pair of Shoes if the Original Pair of Shoes is the same price?

you’s Honestly Making the Original Authors More Sales…But what Do I know ..

(Just like the Famous Brands Around the World )

And If Any Buyer is reading this. Don’t Buy Rip off work – original work cost the same.

HTML tutorial

you can see my original design on the “featured author” banner, and just on top of it, you’ll see my design being submitted by another author, Its the third time this author resubmits my design this Week.. isnt it time for Graphicriver to get some standards to stop these scammers ?

Dude first of all my design was on cue when yours already was approved and it was approved 3 hours after yours!! Stop thinking that everybody is copying you and accusing authors about ripping you off!! Also i had some ideas ripped off but i am not crying about it as we live in a remix world and nothing is going to be unique!

Actually, yours were submitted 1 day after mine, and if you’re so confident of its originality, why have you deleted it mate ?.. also defending your designs and creativity, is not “crying about it” its simply because i respect my works, and i think envato should do more about this.. its definitely not fair to spend a couple days crafting a unique design, so someone else can come by and copy it in a matter of hours.. i have nothing against being inspired by others…. you can be inspired by a color palette, a certain composition method, and a general design style.. but copying a concept, is not a “remix”, its just laziness, and lack of creativity..

Thanks for your feedback guys.. I’m glad to see that you are also aware of this problem.. I love Envato, and i know that’s this is not what they stand for.. but i think its time to adopt a better policy concerning copycats, and maybe pay more attention to items with low quality that are populating the marketplace.. I’m only posting this thread out of concern for a marketplace that I’ve grown to love and respect..

So, I decided to do something fresh for cinco de mayo this year, since all the flyers became too similar.. and i made something totally unique.. at least for graphicriver marketplace, but 1 day after my original post copies started to show up on the marketplace.. while not stealing the exact graphics, they diffidently ripped the concept, and even the layout, and font selection..

I wish Envato could do something about this, and maybe ask the reviewers to be more aware of whats trending on the marketplace, in order to stop such incidences from happening..
