+1 I receive quite a lot of requests to reuse my work on TF and I refuse all of them. Our work on CC is undervalued IMO.
I do understand why some CC authors don’t allow FT authors to include their work in a theme. The Extended License on CC is way to cheap.
Also it should be possible to select Extended License for only some of your items!
Envato mentioned an in-house license for this when they were discussing the licensing a while back. My opnion is that the license should be 25x the original price for every item. Because paying $250 for a script that’s going to be one of the main features of a template is still extremely reasonable. And while we’re discussing templates, riddle me this: TF author buys extended licenses for 5 CC items totaling $75 in value. Then the template is sold for $15. Seems like fuzzy math to me.
I completely agree with you!
Just like many of you guys we also allow our items to be included in TF themes. And we are definitely happy and honored when authors ask for approval to include an item, but I think it is a joke that you can buy something for $75-$125 and in many cases it will make you 25 times that in profit or more.
Happy New Year everyone!
I’m sure most authors are really happy with the marketplaces, but there is always room for improvement.
I welcome the latest improvement in the Author Dashboard Comments. It makes it much easier to follow up. Nice work Envato developers!
I have many things that I would like to see, but some of the most important are:
- Option to sell individual items on either Regular or Extended License. As it is today all your items are either under regular or extended license.
- Specially for Codecanyon I would like to see a developer license
What is on your wish list for 2013 ?
Hello Mike Contact the author of the plugin. You are writing in a public forum Go to the authors profile page and contact him. I’m sure he will help you (if you have a valid license).
Take a look at our portfolio and you will find what you are looking for!
are these for valid item-purchase-code verified installations? maybe there is a set of item purchase codes that make up the majority of these installations? could be someone sharing their item purchase code along with the package. we’ve found a few leaked codes when installation numbers spike and we disable new installations/updates for those particular codes.
We sold 2,010 copies of this plugin, but as we have “update notification” in the plugin we know how many times it has been installed. We don’t restrict the usage of the plugin trough the license key. I believe that if you do this then someone will just “crack it” and distribute it without.
Better provide extra content free stuff – if you enter the license key. However I think that each plugin would get installed less times if we could offer a developer license or discount on multiple purchases.
Unfortunately it doesn’t seam like we will ever get a solution on this issue!
I have some interesting stats on one of our popular plugins, which a lot of customers use for their clients websites. As we are not allowed to do self promoting I won’t mention the name of the plugin, but it is a plugin that lets you customize the wp-admin in WordPress. This is something that is very useful when you create websites for clients.
The plugin has been sold 2,010 times, but we know for a fact that there is currently 13,096 copies of the plugin installed.
My question is could this have been avoided that for every copy of this plugin sold it is on average installed on 6.5 websites? Could the number have been lower if we were able to offer discount on multiple purchases or offer a developer license that would fairly priced?
@Yatek it is definitely a bad idea to include your own jQuery or force the use of a specific version. As OriginalEXE says WordPress includes its own jQuery.
This is one of the most common errors we experience with plugins and themes. Whether you want to help your client and fix the error, so your plugin works is up to you!
We do help our customers even though the error is not in our plugin
