Some sites don’t make sense to be responsive and in fact are better to be zoomed in. In fact, when I’m on my iPhone, as long as the site loads quickly, I could not care less whether it’s responsive or not because typically they hide the content I need (which is extremely poor UX and therefore bad responsive design). Just keep the click/tap targets at a comfortable level for tapping, keep in mind how certain elements like drop-down menus will pan out and you’ll be good.

They are cheeky bast* – and I would really love to boycott them. Unfortunately too many people are using it and too many of my clients which makes this all kinda su.

@themesector I thought of that as well but I have read about a (EU-) Law which prohibits that sellers ADD the fee to the endprice for clients. So I’m not quite sure if I could make it that obviously without getting in troubles. :( I need probably to simply add that to the endprice without the client having to know that he also pays that fee I guess. Maybe I’ll try that, but thanks for your information

@chapterthemes if you’re talking about “a couple of bucks” I needed to laugh :D Actually I never ever had to pay more fees for a single transaction. I guess even the mafia doesn’t earn that much on a transaction hahaha

I also thought about a SWIFT Transfer but haven’t enough experience on that. How much fees do I have to pay to my bank, how much my client have to pay to his/her bank?...I’ll get I should get in touch with my bank to find this out.

Thanks anyway for all of your suggestions. I truly appreceate them all :)

There is a way to pin the fee on one party or the other. I’m not sure which is which but I know that one of the following does it (so look on their website). There is two ways to send money. One for goods/services and the other is a simple transfer or gift (or something along the lines of these). For one of them, you cover the fee before you send the amount (so if you send $50, you’re actually using up $52.10 and end user receives $50) or you can just send $50 and the end-user receives only $47.90 of it. As a freelancer waiting for money, there is no way to “force” the client or PayPal to do one or the other—you have to instruct them to do so or simply add on the 4.2% fee onto your quote as a service charge.

Envato simply covers the fee.

Only supported by the latest dev release of WebKit. In other words, not yet possible.

It’s likely he won’t receive a refund unless the theme is actually broken and even then, support will tell you to fix it first. Refunds don’t come so easy, trust me.

Don’t forget that Internet Explorer 8, 9, and 10 are a requirement for all ThemeForest themes so if the theme you purchased doesn’t work in them, you can get a refund. Don’t spend more of your money on something that should come with the theme as part of the marketplace policies.
Don’t confuse a buyers. It’s not a true.

What exactly about my statement is not true?

Hi, Is it really true with the IE8? I saw lately lots of WP themes released on TF without IE8 specified in the Compatible Browsers section of theme details, for example [link removed – please don’t call out other files on the forum :) Thanks]

Yes, I’m certain about the IE8 requirement. It is and will continue to be a requirement for now. Whether or not themes mark it as a requirement or if the reviewer checks it (even though they should) remains to be seen.

Security software is a scam.

Don’t forget to host static files (such as downloads) with Amazon S3 to serve them insanely quick and cheap.
