Congratulations! But sorry to tell you that the goodie pack comes at 125k.
Welcome to the club!
Withdraw the money directly to their account via Envato so the money will never arrive at you directly, otherwise it’s more complicated, legally speaking(for taxes) I do every month several different withdrawals
Happy New Year to everybody!
Of course you can make a living out of Envato. But that mostly depends where you’re from, it will be hard to make a living if you live in Switzerland for example. Or US / UK / etc. You get the point.
You can spend months on a multi-purpose and it can not sell or you can make a simple and beautiful theme that will sell like crazy. There’s no general rule, it’s upto the customers, on what they like / dislike. And up to you too, how much will you invest in that theme after you finish it(advertising it).
While most of the top themes are multi-purpose, I think there’s still place for great niched themes. However, don’t think that just because you add 50 sliders, 50 homepages and 50 plugins, your theme will sell like hot cakes, because it won’t.
You will get the same html and css files, only the images may differ.
Envato is the seller, BTW why this discussion? I missed the whole VAT discussion, are we (authors) going to handle invoices?! And how on earth VAT is 20%? we need clear justification on this number!
Please read the whole discussion and you’ll find your answers, if you missed it, no need to re-ask the questions that other 100 members asked. VAT is not 20%, it depends on the country of the buyers and the buyer will pay it. e.g. If the buyer is from Germany, he’ll pay 19% more and Envato will collect that VAT.
As for invoicing, from what Envato’s saying, yes, we’ll pretty much need to invoice everything ourselves.
From the blog post today: “We’ll be introducing limited buyer information against each sale.” I guess we might get that necessary information in the near future…
So they will start displaying buyer private information?What that information will be? name, address, mail, VAT number?
They for sure won’t show the e-mail, probably the minimum requirements for an invoice
@revaxarts All I’m curious is if it’s legal for someone to invoice on someone else’s behalf.
FinalDestiny saidI get where you are coming from and completely agree with you, but according to their ToS, they just handle the payment on our behalf.
weibergmedia saidOkay, then you purchase 3 items from 3 authors and make one payment to Envato, which sends the money to me after 15-45 days. Where exactly do I directly sell to the customer?
^ Maybe they’ll remove the option of buying prepaid credits and replacing it with the new shopping cart.
They can’t invoice on your behalf.
