Definitely gone…but where, I say?!
I’ve been having problems submitting items. Uploading to the FTP has been fine but it’s when I press the submit button that takes ages and then comes back with an error “Something went wrong. Please try again.” Wasted about 3 hours trying to submit items but to no avail.
I think its because of site maintenance.
“You’re here coz we’re making some big backend changes to the Envato Marketplaces! We’ll be back in just a minute or two. Thanks very much for your patience”
It’s a big downer when they knock off 30% commission To top it all off you get paid on the 28th of the next month! So say you’ve just got completed a job and the money has come into your Microlancer account on 1st May, then that money will get transferred to your payment account on 28th June! Meaning you wait for almost a whole two months to get paid! Reason for that is it’s because it’s a safety net to avoid any potential fraudulent activity. However they are looking into it.
You should have got an email from Microlancer. Check your spam!

I’ve completed a couple of jobs and everything went smoothly, i.e no disputes, no extra revisions etc. In fact all the jobs were completed well before the stated times. The process system runs smoothly with very less minimum fuss and hassle. However the 30% fee charge is a bit of downer really! I have raised the issue about the 30% charge with the Microlancer team. Waiting for a reply. I’m hoping it’s going to be a positive response otherwise the only way round it would be to just increase the service fee!
Very impressed…good job!
InDesign is the best option for page layout. It’s going to get pretty heavy and messy if it’s done in Photoshop as Alexlasek has already said. However if you have already designed the pages in Photoshop then you can try this: Save your pages as JPEGs the go to Acrobat Reader > File > Combine Files into a Single PDF > then select all your JPEGs. Only problem doing this is that the PDF file will be huge! So try doing it in stages.
