We’re only implicated for VAT because of the new author fee system.

This is a new system that Collis claims has always been the case.

When I signed up to Envato the make money page looked like this: https://web.archive.org/web/20120101144347/http://themeforest.net/wiki/selling/getting-paid/payment-rates/

Every time an item is sold on the Envato Marketplaces a percentage of the sale price goes to the author.

This is what I signed up for and agreed to, if the “author fee” model existed then, it would have been mentioned.

Simply put: Envato are trying to save themselves money with the Author Fee system, whether it’s Tax or Accounting Fees who knows, but we know this, all these issues with VAT etc. are purely because of this new system, and insisting that this has always been the case is belittling and a blatant lie.

It’s sad that Envato is becoming a company that’s happy to screw its members just to earn more money for itself.

Another quote:

New authors begin at the 50% level and as sales volume adds up, so does the commission percentage. That means the more you sell, the more you earn!

So you see Collis, this Author Fee system was not always the case, and claiming misuse of the word “commission” is not an excuse.

I signed up for Envato to sell my items and pay me commission, this is what was mentioned in the pages at the time.

It’s bitter, but I have to agree. Will not speculate on the reasons, but Envato is standing on the edge of complicating lives of European authors (and author with business registered in Europe) significantly.

As Collis mentioned in his recent post, we’re investigating ways we can alleviate and address concerns around the business model.
How much “investigation” does the VAT issue need?

From the legal and accounting points of view we ARE on commission based model :) So the easiest way for Envato is to make appropriate changes to authors agreement.

IMO whole situation with VAT does not smell good. And if will be implemented – this will significantly complicate the conduct of business for european authors.

Hey,
I was browsing another theme marketplace (not ThemeForest) and noticed that many theme there have integrated versions of Slider Revolution, Visual Composer, etc.

I thought if you are purchasing an extended license on CodeCanyon and have the permission of the author, you can use that plugin in your product but sell it exclusively on Envato marketplace. Has it changed? Or I’m missing something?

Thanks!

Envato Market as a platform with direct transactions between buyer and author
is completely wrong and not the reality. Direct transactions between the buyer and the author? :) Seriously?

+1 :)

This is like calling black “white”. Envato tries to convince everybody including itself.

In reality authors are getting commissions from Envato. Ask to analyze the model any accountant (or better lawyer) – they will confirm it.

It might be a dns issue, someone edited the dns and put it in wrong? Have requested staffd reply

It sure is. But “Envato analytics “hacked” by a… university? :)” title looks more dramatic :D

Go for the Retina display. Trust me you absolutely NEED it. iMac 5K seems an easier and less expensive option to me.. well, if you don’t really need all that processing power of MacPRO.

Hi,
Are there any secrets in setting it up? :)
Umm, not sure really, make sure you have the right size (A,B or C) and get those arm rests at the right height :)

Strange.. Size B. Seems to fit me alright. Arm rests are just a bit to low and I cannot rise theme anymore. I’m not getting why back support and support underneath knees are so stiff; is it supposed to be so? I read somewhere that it can take couple of weeks to get used to the chair..

Been using an Aeron for about 2 years, I like the mesh, you don’t get any “pressure points” like you do on a cushion based chair. Though I know some really hate them, but I think mine’s done great for my back :)

Hey guys,
What do you think about Aeron chair?

I’m sitting in one right now, and it’s kinda weird. On the one hand, it’s not bad. On the other, the “cushions” under the knees and lower back are way too stiff. And I’m not sure my butt likes to sit on mesh.

What do you think? Am I missing something?
Thanks!

Kind regards,
Miroslav (from Dream-Theme)
