I follow Envato on Twitter since a long time. The communication is good. Always fresh and interesting news. It made me discover the CodeCanyon HTML5 Ad contest which I joined
On Facebook I’m following Envato since some months. I was surprised to see that they reacted to posts of mine on my own Facebook page, just because I mentioned them.
Thumbs up from me
This was a fun contest. And the best thing: I learned something new
Read the blog entry guys, you get an invoice for the author fees paid on the first day of the next month. So for your author fees paid in February, you get an invoice with all author fees for purchases made in February on March 1st.
well, sorry then. looks like I missed that point.
anyway, the thing with this invoice address by some (many) users given is still actual. How can I explain I invoiced “batman from India”
There is a another thing I want to point out, which I think is super important for every author here. (Sorry to say so Envato / Collis, but in my eyes this point is stabbing us authors in the back ).
There MUST be something like a 2nd invoice from Envato to us authors regarding the authors fee. Not just one invoice from us the authors, to our buyers.
In my little example bellow I show how it could look like. I get ”$ 4.80” for a GraphicRiver item, at least according to the invoice which gets send to the buyer. But what I REALLY get is $ 3.30…
It’s good that the authors fee of $ 1.50 is shown in my statement section so I know what’s going on, but that doesn’t help me not at all when it comes to the finance authority. They need documents and invoices if I want to proof my expanses.
I don’t really see why I should pay more taxes than necessary because of Envatos funny way of doing accounting. So as already said, please add invoices for the authors fees. Issued from Envato to the authors.
I got one question:
Is it possible to “force” members of the Envato marketplace (or now platform) to PLEASE enter their full and CORRECT address? So far I seem to be one of the few fools who gives his full and correct address.
One example of the invoices which were created in my name:
With an address like this, the whole invoice is useless to me in front of the finance authority. It will only get me trouble.
This is not a unique case. I mean I read about cases with addresses like “batman from India” in the forums… the heck??
If you create invoices in my name, for which I never gave a written permission, make sure they are 100% legal please.
why did the package come from Austria?
