Thanks for the interview Sam!
I wish I would have known about this express service option sooner, I would have totally signed up as a service provider!
So please forgive me if I’m not understanding this correctly, but when the express service launches for my plugins on CodeCanyon, the services are going to be offered by someone other than myself. This seems a bit weird. I kinda feel like we as authors should be able to say whether or not our plugins offer this express customization service, and more importantly that WE can offer it ourselves from the get-go. I’m already an Envato Studio provider, why not let me handle those requests?
I understand that there was a “first-come-first-serve” thing going on for the express service providers, but I frankly don’t want someone else customizing my plugins for my customers when I could be doing the work myself.
Any way to fast track becoming an express service provider?
I wanto to stop use ticksy service and stop auto payment each month but it look like there are no way to cancel. Could you do it for me?
My ticksy account is wopethemes.ticksy.comThanks!
You should be able to hover over the gear icon in the upper right, then go to Account. There’s a Billing tab on that page that includes the cancellation button.
I would think a good option would be to have this restriction on a per update basis. So every time an item is updated, the download count resets.
I was working on a little app today that lets you sync your Downloads to Dropbox. The idea was that you would always have the latest versions of the files in Dropbox for easy access (when updating themes, plugins, etc.).
But then I ran into this little snag: https://help.market.envato.com/hc/en-us/articles/202821300
So basically, when you download (or sync in this case) a file more than 50 times, you can’t do it anymore. I wanted to get some clarity on this.
An item like Visual Composer for example, might have had more than 50 updates in its lifetime (or more than likely will eventually). What happens when you just want to download the 51st update and you can’t anymore? This seems like an odd restriction. I’m sure it doesn’t happen often, but in the time it took me to develop this little app and test it, I’ve lost my Visual Composer download link. I’d have to purchase it again to get it back, which seems silly.
Love the placement of the new buttons (I’d love to see them in color though, they’re easy to miss now). However, there’s an issue if you have more than 2 buttons under your product’s banner:
It’s a 5 minute fix for most developers, we should start seeing the items in question getting fixed pretty quickly, unless they’re no longer supported.
