See buyer’s invoice: https://help.market.envato.com/hc/en-us/articles/204159940-A-Buyer-s-Guide-to-Your-Statement-Document

City + State + Country — AND — full name.

Motivated people don’t need a street address to find you. A pinpoint on high earners goes out with every invoice. That would scare me in many parts of the world.

I’m not even Liam Neeson, and I bet I could touch any author in any city with a little digging. Now imagine what motivation a wretchedly poor and unscrupulous person will have and do.

Unless the author rewrites the theme you’ll either need to start with a new theme or hire someone to rewrite yours. In many cases your content will survive migrating to a new theme, but a lot may not line up.

Next time you announce a feature, could you post screenshots of the before/after process so we can easily see what’s changing? Not exactly helping us be productive when everyone has to go simulate a purchase just to see what the impact is.
hey GravityDept, sorry about that! Can definitely get some before/after screenshots going :) You can see screens of the new flow in this Help Center article

Thanks, I know a lot of tax/invoice changes are “coming soon” and people will want examples as soon as they’re rolled out. It will really help if you illustrate all the edge cases up front, so it’s not a surprise later.

You can host static sites on GitHub Pages for free.

Patience with Envato be locked in 3.. 2.. 1.. seconds.

Until Envato addresses the countless concerns raised in the last 12 months (really way longer) about pricing, taxes, updates, and support they shouldn’t expect us to give them quarter. Some of us have paid in tens and hundreds of thousands of dollars for Envato to make selling easy and hassle-free. That’s not happening.

I won’t be providing any tax numbers until Envato does a 180 degree twist on transparency, communication, and respect to the people who they earn on the backs of.

Never use @import. It blocks rendering. You should be compiling our CSS to one file.

Assuming Envato still aims to report author commissions (or whatever they call it now), those 1099 forms must be mailed to us by January 31.

Ahem, that’s in 8 days.

Get ready for a policy to get rammed in our collective faces with no time to react. Once those forms go out Envato won’t retract anything. It’ll be our skin the IRS looks at.

Or maybe they’ll just skip reporting for 2014. Not likely.

I had a buyer from 4 years ago (4 years!) decide to give me a 1 star rating last month citing:

“Was great a few years ago but lacking now.”

I’d like to go dump some trash on his lawn too.
