Please, please, do not even think of making any discounts for WP and HTML templates.
In my opinion this marketplace should have bigger prices and focus on getting visitors by showing them the quality of the items here, not by cheapening it and makin it look like a discounts marketplace. But it doesn’t matter, because nobody actually cares about what me or any other authors has to say about it.
Obviously. Whenever someone proves wrong, NOBODY comes to reply back. I said that 95% of who posted here is against this idea and we don’t want it. Now, who’s replying back from the staff? Nobody. I’m so dissapointed with the way Envato is doing stuff. Nobody wants your changes and you’re still pushing them. Tomorrow we might see 50% discounts for all the WP themes just because someone from the team thought it’s a great idea.
Isn’t that absolutely great? I wonder why do we waste our time saying anything when there’s soooooo obviously that they are not caring AT ALL about us. This thread proves it all. I mean, seriously, there wasn’t even a single author that a decent number of sales that approved to this, why in hell would you post a message saying it was “requested” by some of the authors and members? Okay, show me those members. Because all I can see are 10+ elite authors that are completely against this idea.
Pricing tests = how much can we reduce the prices and get more sales without the authors telling anything.
I just hope this won’t go into the HTML / WP categories. If there’s anything that should happen to the prices here, they should BE BIGGER.
I hate this blue. Other than that, it’s cool, I like it. But I’d really love to see this blue changed to something else.
Thank you everyone!
Congrats! And wish you many more years together!
@Gareth YES! That’s something we would LOVE to have. And it would prove that Envato actually tries to improve the marketplaces rather than doing small updates that nobody cares about.
Having three different purchase options seems the best way to handle it. You care about the customers that pay more, then code this option yourself, this is why you have a team of programmers behind Envato. And this is WAY better than having different versions.
I received a lot of questions via e-mail “But why would I buy the WordPress version when the HTML is just $15? So imagine having two WordPress themes but with different prices. Hell, that’d be a mess.
With that option, you would fix one more thing, we could sell premium support or other options within the purchases, like demo installation, premium support, new features, etc.
