I agree with many of you but also I believe there is a some misunderstanding how this marketplace works. Prices on Videohive as well as for example on AudioJungle and I assume on other Envato markets here set based more on technical parameters like resolution, duration, etc and not directly related to how hard to do it. It does not matter if it takes you 1 hour to shot and process or 1 day or 1 month. It’s up to you how you do it, what equipment, actors, whatever. Prices are about the same. If resulted footage unique and is on market demand you will sell it a lot anyway, if not – 0 sales or 1-2 sales is a max. Does it matter if price $5 or $50 if no sale?

I agree that stock footage price needs to be reconsidered and probably increased but for my opinion it’s not related to time-lapses specifically as well as not related to other details about how it was made.

My believe we as authors shall either 1) concentrate to create products needed for many customers to have many sales or 2) do a kind of art and enjoy the process without too much hopes for sales. Of course it’s nice to cover both but It’s rare and hard and if to choose personally I as stock footage author I prefer later approach. :-)

Maybe refered user purchase not so expensive item ( yours or from another author).

It can’t be other item from me since it’s not in my statement. As I wrote above there is a tiny chance of other item from other author purchase but statistically probability is too low – more chances of bug in earnings/referral counting software. :-) .

Meanwhile I recommend to unhide my thread, it’s moved from http://videohive.net/forums/topic/all-marketplaces/47 to some hiden tab, it say it’s in “Home > Forums > Site Feedback” but when I click into Site Feedback it’s not here. :-(

My thread currently at http://videohive.net/forums/topic/site-feedback/30
While publicly accesible Site Feedback is here http://videohive.net/forums/topic/site-feedback/36

If it’s serious issue then you’d like to have other authors to check and be aware rather then hide it from public. Hiding bug or something is always wrong strategy.

Usually when someone new buy item through referal link it’s easyly tracked what item assosiated with such puchase since it has exactly the same date and time in the statement.

For example this is how it was previously:
As you can see everything is correct, somebody purchased item from me for $5+2 = $7 and I got 30% refferal cut from it

And here is how it looks from recent refferal cut:


Looks as a wrong calculation, since if someone deposits, it’s $20 minimum otherwise customer can’t buy item for $6 without additional $2 so I shall get $8 sale and 2.4 as refferal cut.

Clearly looks like a bug in the system!

Of course there is a tiny chance that someone registered to Videohive through my reflink then bought item from someone else for $4 and exactly the same second other customer with the existing deposit purchased item from me. But taking into consideration everage purchases from me as 1 per 3 hour this chance is lower then 1/10800. :-)

P.S
Staff reply requested.

1. Keep it empty if no recognazable faces or property. Otherwise fill the form and have it signed by owner of the face/property.

2. ZIP file size as it is. // Size of source. E.g. 150kb, 50.5kb, 12.5mb, 5mb

Btw one thing they did better vs. Envato. This is what suggested and discussed many times. :-)

They:
Buy $50
Prepaid customers
pay just $45 – How?

Envato:
Buy Now with Credit – $50
Buy Now with PayPal – $52*
*Includes a $2 surcharge
