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?

Hi,

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.com

Thanks!

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.

Anyone?

And actually, an item like Visual Composer might have been updated more than 50 times. What happens when you just want to download the updated files and you can’t anymore? This seems like an odd restriction. I may post a new topic on it just to get some clearer answers.

So I actually go this working on a rudimentary level. 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. This means that if the app is syncing the items once a day or whatever, after 50 days you won’t be able to download the file anymore.

I’m not sure there’s anyway to work around this issue unfortunately, and there’s no way to get “downloads left” from Envato’s API.

Can anyone from Envato comment on this? Not sure where to go at this point.

I think the plan is solid. But what i was thinking about was making a mysql database where purchase-codes are saved, and let the user define these codes in a panel of some sort. When clicking the update or whatever link, it just retrieves it from the code in database with envato api. I dunno if you planned something else though.

Yep, that was the plan. You enter the products with an item id and purchase code (for some reason Envato doesn’t spit back the item information from the purchase code—just a download link), so entering the item id and pc would be a good idea.

But that’s basically it!

You could look at this WP plugin: https://github.com/envato/envato-wordpress-toolkit

it shows one way you could keep wp themes up to date.

if you store the purchase code for each item somewhere, then you can download each item with the download-purchase api: http://marketplace.envato.com/api/documentation

Right, that will keep themes in sync, but not everything right? I’m thinking this would also be used for us developers who package plugins with their themes. The plugin files would always stay up to date in Dropbox.

I dunno, are we overthinking it guys?
