You cannot write what you want in contract and then insist that this is more important than local law.
They could also write that you are the sole heir of Michael Jackson, and you may also have to agree with it. But if the facts say otherwise, there is no way that it will happen
Imho, until the buyer has to purchase credits first from envato, authors can never be considered the direct sellers.
According to my local tax office, as long as they state in their terms and conditions that we are the direct seller, and we continue to use this site, which means that we accept this then we are liable because we accept that we are the direct seller because we are still using their site.
I’m not agree with your reasoning. I guess that “Terms and conditions” is not an unilateral contract. If you agree to be a seller, then they should comply with the above conditions and should allow you to be a seller for real.
If terms says that you are the seller but the facts say otherwise, you can’t be liable as seller. In any way. Accepting the terms just means that you agree with it. Not that what it says is true.
What about purchasing using earned credits?
I’ll explain it better: I’m an EU Envato author, it’s 15th of the month and, till now, I collected $1.000 of sales. I want to buy an item from another author in the marketplace, and I want to pay it using part of my $1.000 credits.
Should I be charged of VAT?
Aren’t the $1.000 in my balance just virtual credits? If yes, why a virtual credits transaction should be charged of VAT?
Happy Birthday Envato!! And thanks a lot for your gift! It is strange to see that is the “celebrated” to give the gift, but it’s really cool
Thank you for implementation! I love this feature
Just sent my one. I hope to be in time
