Pirated versions often contain unwanted extra’s as well.

Viruses and callhome scripts. There is nothing stopping them emailing home access details about your installation or opening a backdoor, creating an admin user or similar.

Envato are not the copyright holder therefore cannot submit a DMCA notice, this has to be done by the copyright holder by law.

I don’t believe that’s 100% correct because you can authorise someone to act on the copyright owner’s behalf.

Anyway, it’s often best to send DMCA directly to Google to remove certain results from SERPS. If they can’t find it it’s still just as good. Also some sites are not DMCA compilant.

What is the maximum withdrawal admitted on payoneer? I had withdrawal 3000 maximum.. Can I make it 6000 dollars for example? it will not take me extra fees?

You can use your Payoneer card to make online/in-store purchases of up to $2,500 per day, and cash withdrawals for up to $2,500 per day ($5,000 total daily limit).

In addition, you can use our Withdraw to Bank Service to withdraw up to $10,000 per day to your local bank account.

Hello nissim. I bump to this thread and I want to make a payonner account. So this is the scenario for cash wd only:

I made 250$ in Envato.Then I send the money to payoneer. My currency is euro.
1. Now, can I withdraw the money directly from an atM?
2. From that amount of money how much did you take for fees
3. Is there any other fees?

This is the steps now with PayPal. Money from Envato goes to PayPal account, then I choose a withdraw to bank. When the money transfer complete, there is 3 euros fee. That’s it.

What are the steps with payoneer? Please answer exactly for this case. I don’t care about online purchases. Thank you.

P.s I’m interested to change only hoping for better rates.

Take Mastercard cross-border fee and conversion fee into account, it can be 3-5% in my experience. It’s not necessarily a payoneer fee nor is it hidden, it’s just hard to calculate and it gets lost between banks.

What about Canada and some other countries that are not EU but may have a sales tax system. Are you supposed to include it in invoicing?

I have a feeling they submit your files and then send you their own link saying “look what we just found”. If you show any interest, they’ll keep doing it, just so they have “something to remove”. You can battle the organic results if you wish. There are some sites that don’t comply to DMCA. The best would be to file DMCA directly to Google with Chilling Effects, though you need a company if you don’t wish to publish your personal information (notices to Google are public).

My solution can pull photos from a Flickr group, if that’s community enough :)

same here, and i’m also this week featured author in audiojungle… :-/

I’m also featured but it didn’t change much. I believe buyers don’t like VAT.

On my account I have a team of developers who share a split commission. From each sale of a theme for example I’m only getting 40% share, so I’m little uncomfortable with having my name on each invoice for 100% of the amount. I just get the sinking feeling this going to cause me trouble further down the line. Before this, the only thing which had my name on it, was one payment slip from Envato which was an accurate reflection of my income. What is Envato’s opinion to make me feel more comfortable with this new invoicing policy?

Thought you had a company :) Why not open one?

My Payoneer card got hacked in mid 2014, just under 4 hours after I got my Envato payout. The ATM withdrawals were minutes apart and originated from Russia then Mexico. ( I wonder which airlines travels that fast :)

I have cards issued by local banks that work internationally which I use frequently but it was only the Payoneer card that got hacked… Even though I only use that card for emergencies (once a month or less).

3 months after filing a dispute, I’m now been offered a $280 “good will” gesture out of almost $600 taken. $600 is a lot of money where I live.

I’m disappointed. Now I have to rely on bank transfer which means Envato payouts are now further apart and fees are higher…

A concern of mine is what if the cashier is a super smart human who can memorize all the numbers and letters on a card when I give it to them at point of sale? They could then use the info for online purchases. Also, when paying at restaurants (in the US), they may take your card away for payment then bring it back later. During that time they can write down all the info or take photos. Also security cams could record images of your card and if they catch both sides then bam anyone who watches the video feed can pay using it. Also, when stopped by the police in a foreign country they can take photos of your card, and if they are corrupt or some 3rd party accidentally finds those pictures then bam again, they can spend your money. ATMs can be spoofed so your card info gets stolen then later copied, maybe you just used your card at the wrong place at the wrong time :/ Anyway, be careful with whom you show your card or where you use it. As far as I know google wallet with a google NFC phone can be a substitute for any card, then you could use it instead of your card at any POS terminal that has paypass. That’s probably a way how thieves copy cards.

If you will be finding a middleman be VERY careful about who you do business with, there are lots of money transfer scams. Not sure about relatives but family can also be dishonest, especially distant relatives and with this amount.
