I think Mayweather will win. He’s too good defensively and I think you have to knock him out to beat him. And not sure Pacquiao can do that at this point in his career. But definitely rooting for Pacquiao!
Been using 3.0 for the past month and love it! Keep up the great work Justin
Haha this is so awesome! Congrats Jake!
Really cool. Looking forward to hearing about what you guys come up with this year
You’re freaky talented. What’s you’re education background? Or is everything self-taught?
I think you have to keep in mind that reviewers are trying to get through as many submissions as fast as possible. So the moment they initially see something that isn’t right, if it warrants a soft-reject, they probably won’t spend any additional time reviewing the submission. So once you fixed the initial issues, and the reviewer evaluated the item further, they decided it wasn’t something that was right for the marketplace.
But don’t let this discourage you. My first ever submission was a hard-reject! Just make something new and try again
So you say the platform model is better for authors? Then how come there are no new benefits for authors being direct sellers? Do you honestly feel like you are selling direct to your customers? Sure we could ask for the benefits you listed, but all of those take power away from Envato and buyers, do you think we’ll actually get those then? No, Envato wants full control and authors here are at the bottom of the food chain, this is clear from their unique hybrid of platform / re-seller model. If this truly is a Platform, then Envato needs to give authors more control over the selling of our work, more protection from buyers, and also faster access to our income – then I will agree we are direct sellers.
For your first question, definitely not. For the second, this is what I think we need to lobby for. In all my years hear, I don’t think I’ve ever seen a major decision overturned due to author feedback. And I’m generally ok with that, since this is Envato’s business and they’re always going to make decisions based on what’s best for them, and we’d all do the same if it were our company. But there have been lots of times where we’ve been able to influence/tweak the program. So that’s mostly what I’m suggesting here.
CodingJack said+1 for both these. But the problem is author fee is variable (Not a static 30%). Combining it with buyer fee will be crazy.
- Eliminate the “author fee” and put the entire fee on the buyer. And stick this information in fine print in the TOS where it belongs. Then buyers won’t care about paying a “30% fee” unless they actually read the TOS (and they won’t).
- Allow authors to include a legal liability disclaimer in their items (another basic right of any “seller”).
I’m not sure I agree. There’s really no reason it needs to show up on the buyer’s receipt. It only needs to be stated in the TOS:
“Buyer fees will generally vary depending on the product, but will always be automatically added to the listed price.”
And as long as it’s strategically placed in the TOS, I highly doubt it would ever be an issue.
