As mentioned this, yet another silently locked thread: http://themeforest.net/forums/thread/invoices-vat-and-co/158529 Envato is going to issue invoices on our, authors, behalf. Despite we never see get those money directly, do not set the price and do not sell directly.
This sounds illegal to me. Who’s going to have a legal consultation regarding this issue? (I’m especially interested to hear from fellow authors in UK.) Please feel free to shoot me a PM, since locking and removing forum threads is apparently the only way Envato handles issues nowadays.

You can take a look at our The7 theme: http://themeforest.net/item/the7-responsive-multipurpose-wordpress-theme/5556590
When i get the Level 9 Badge (250K $), Envato promoted one of my item (1000$ google promote). It was now – in January.
1. I was waiting 3 months until it started. 2. It was working one week or 10 days.. not remember exactly. 3. It gives me 580 new visitors 4. It sells only 3 times 5. And i earn $121 form 1000$ promote.
So, i was waiting 3 months for 3 sales) I’m not so happy)
It’s not about profits from ads. It’s about delivering on promises.
IngeniousArtist saidBut you can’t redistribute other authors work on a personal site regardless if you purchased a licence, and the licence itself is non-transferable.
So, for example i am from a blog, and i want to give away 3 license i bought from for example- your items. So, i bought 3 license, and now i did the giveaway and will give 3 license to 3 people.
I saw themes bundled with plugins from CodeCanyon on competing theme marketplace, though..
More than 3 month past. Still nothing from Envato.
Guys, maybe it’s time to remove the “rewards” from Envato Elite site?
1. It’s incorrect to compare multipurpose theme vs “twenty fifteen”. Or “twenty fifteen” can do everything that that multipurpose theme can?
2. If page speed “was not in initial brief” then neither client nor Envato cannot demand it. I’m shocked by the fact that “the envato studio support replies back saying that “this issue needs to be fixed [...] before the job can be closed or they will be refunding back to the buyer””. I think you should contact Envato support regarding these incorrect actions of Envato studio staff.
Hey Oliver!WS-Theme said
Is it allowed to submit this Template as a new one (it has a new Name and also the design is changing). Can anybode answer this Question?
That’s a great question! If both the design and features are significantly different between the two versions, you should be safe to submit this as a new item.
Of course, it’ll still need to go through the review process and there’s no guarantee it will be approvedChristian
This way Envato just pushes authors to create more themes.
Guys, grow up already! This strategy was good for a small marketplace. You are big enough, and it’s time to start growing in terms of product quality, not quantity.
At this moment buyers are getting horrid experience with items that are not on Top Sellers list simply because you refuse to charge for updates: authors have zero interest in updating items the moments they stop selling. In todays world, this business model is not sustainable both for authors and buyers.
