”..we supply services to Envato and Envato supplies services to buyers..”
Yup, exactly. I have consulted quite a few Finnish tax specialists about this thing and on their written reply they see the relationship of Envato and its authors as “Commision Trade” where we supply services to Envato and Envato sells services (items) to buyers. There’s really no way around that. The fact that Envato still keeps opposing the EU law and its tax authorities will cause a lot of harm.
the buyer fee / author fees are part of the envato terms for about a year now.
They just implemented it now in the statement page, but according to envato’s official statement regarding who pays who here, we are paying envato a fee since 2006.
I demand an invoice for that so I can deduct the author fee as business expense because according to envato’s ongoing fairy tale I received 80% of the list price for a long time now. I haven’t seen that money on the statement page, nor on my bank account, yet that’s envato’s claim.I demand an invoice for the fees I paid to envato.
It sounds like a commercial, maybe about some medical product or eldercare. It’s hard to tell for sure, as that isnt the full audio clip. BTW Toivomedia, the part you referred to isnt about cars, but AUTOnomy of people
Dirty Loops are great! Heja Sverige!
Adding ‘Ratings’ to the search criteria is a very bad idea. In a market where we’re averaging 2-4% of our tracks/sales being rated, that is going to cut a LOT of people out of the results.
Buyers will naturally gravitate towards looking for something that’s rated high. By doing this, they will inadvertently remove a lot of great music from their search results because people don’t take time to rate GREAT music.
I thought we agreed that the ratings were pretty much irrelevant here at AJ? Why are we going backwards?I BEG the staff to reverse this decision.
I can’t imagine ratings would be included, as staff have already said ratings aren’t really relevant to AJ. I think if faceted search was rolled out to AJ it would be a great thing for authors and buyers alike.
I hope you’re right. In general I think faceted search would be great for AJ, I’m just worried about the ratings part..
I think if ratings have to be a part of this new search, the whole rating system needs to be adjusted. It’s a bit silly that by sorting the search by ratings, one leaves out 96% of AJ library – as currently only 7234 AJ items have any kind of a visible rating at all. I hope buyers will notice this, as otherwise it’s a very possible death sentence to the most of AJ items.
