So if I understand it correctly it will not be possible to legally sell anymore on Envato as a European student? As a student you’re allowed to work as an employee but not provide services. So if from now on I’m assumed to be the seller then I will have to end my account ASAP because otherwise I will lose more money then I have ever made on Envato. If Envato is not an employer anymore then what exactly are you? You are taking 50% of the profit, only pay out the money once a month and that only if a certain goal is met. Please explain me how you can justify this because my small brain can’t grasp this.
Envato was never an employer, regardles of their seller status. You got it completely wrong here. You were and are working self-employed when you are selling over envato. Also, I don’t know what country you’re in but please make sure you have your facts right regarding not being allowed to work for yourself as a student because what you describe sounds very…wrong.

Exactly. Envato was never an employer. However you can sell items which are your creative work just like an artist: painter, writer etc. In Poland it’s allowed and you don’t need register as company to sell licenses.

This is why it’s so extremely important to describe relations between Authors and Envato not only according to VAT but generally.

We need to be sure that Authors are content providers and Envato is service provider and seller.

And that’s it. This is the only way to keep individual Authors from EU here.

That was the point I tried to make as well. It’s not easy discussing this kind of topic in a foreign language. Also, in Belgium, I will get into trouble with student statute if I’m considered the seller and will have to start paying taxes while now I don’t have to.

Hey fellow jungle animals,

I came across [link removed] video from the official page of my favorite Belgian beer. Sadly, I don’t think I can ever drink it again after seeing this sad case of copyright infringement. (Nah, just kidding)

I can’t remember whom the song is from. Can anyone tell me so I can contact the author.

cheers, Matt

I guess that is the only logical explanation possible then (although he didn’t show up under registered members). Thanks

Thanks for the reply but no it doesn’t answer my question. I know the reference link worked because the click through worked. 5 minutes later he made an account and bought the item and I got the money for selling the item but in the earnings it never showed up that he even registered. I assume that something is wrong because it is already more then 3 hours ago and it still hasn’t showed up. Anyone an idea what I should do?

Hey,

I just referred a friend to buy an item of mine. I looked at my earnings and the click through was registered but it doesn’t say a member registered nor that he deposited. I know he bought my item and since the click through had worked as well I was wondering if all went well? Does anyone know if this is normal and I just have to be a bit patient before it shows up?

Friendly greetings, The Pianojungle

No better or worse than last month so far. The usual few days of nothing, than a sudden flurry of sales on the same day!

I’m really wondering about this phenomenon as well. I’m always wondering if there is sometimes a lag between the sale and showing up on your balance or if it are buyers that buy multiple of your items at the same time. Anyway, sales are sales.

Seems like a good idea, but it makes absolutely no sense to me! I have trending items with zero sales. How can this be when my 2 newer tracks, which are selling well, aren’t trending?
It’s fixed now. Check again! :)

Haha, I don’t know what has changed but now I don’t have any trending items anymore :D Seems there is still a lot of tweaking going on :p
