Hey,

I don’t think you can improve the theme to a point where it gets accepted. Why not trying to team up with a designer – let someone create a beautiful design that you can code afterwards. No need to do everything on your own ;-)

+1 on the author driven refunds, I have quiet a bit of use for that!

As for the pricing structure: I might have to get used to it and after a few days it will be all fine but right now it seems a bit too confusing for me, still. I think simpler is better :(

Finally, those handling fees are going away. That was always an annoying conversion barrier.

The breakdown of prices into three categories is really confusing even as an author, and even with an additional explanation.

  • Envato Author Fee (Envato keeps it)
  • Envato Buyer Fee (Envato keeps it)
  • Net Author Earning (Author keeps it)

How does presenting two fees and the author earning make the aggregated price more palatable to buyers? It would be a lot clearer to say:

Price: $100
Split: 70% Gravity Department + 30% Envato

Then buyers would know exactly how much money the author is getting and what Envato is taking from that sale. That would be double-effective in telling buyers that Envato is not producing the items, which is frequently misunderstood by first-time buyers.

I agree – it is super confusing

I don’t get the new fee structure. Will I earn the same amount per sell or less or more? Super confused…

I would guess 80% is rejected. But just a guess.

Hey,

Seems like a regular update with all pros and cons ;) we are in general more excited about new features than afraid of the work related to updating our themes. I am really looking forward for the plans for mobile in wp 4.x… :)

Hey man,

You need to buy a buddy press theme then. Just browse for it here on the marketplace and you will find plenty of options.

Hey,

It’s a 30/100. You won’t make this theme being accepted by tf. Keep improving and maybe team up with a designer and you can make it next time ;)
