I’m really sorry if we gave the wrong impression at some point, but we don’t currently have developer licenses in the immediate development pipeline. In fact, it’s something we used to have, but we eventually took them down. Yes, there were some people who bought them, but the demand was pretty low. That said, the sites have changed quite a bit since then so it’s definitely worth a second look. That’s not to say we’ll definitely offer them, but we will see if there’s more buyer demand than before.
Thank you for getting back to us with an answer!
I can only speak for Codecanyon as that is the only place where we sell our stuff. However I have purchased many WordPress themes on Themeforest and never purchased an Extended License. It is very rarely that we have customers that want the same design.
However when it comes to WordPress Plugins it is NOT unusual that a cutomer use the same plugin for multiple customers. We know for a fact that some of our customers have installed some of our plugins on multiple websites. Every week we have customers enquiring about discounts on multiple purchases or developer licenses .. and all we can do is tell them that Codecanyon doesn’t offer discount on multiple purchases or a developer license. We clearly loose out on sales due to this fact. And I know that several authors have just started saying that the customer should by the Extended License.
Almost every other marketplace outside Envato offers a developer license. What is the problem? Look into the top selling Authors of scripts and plugins on Codecanyon and analyze their sales – you guys have access to all the data behind the scene.
I’m sure you are busy with other stuff that have much higher priority, but coming back after 8+ months and saying that there is no plans in the immediate future is definitely disappointing.
Besides that we do love the dynamic of the marketplaces, but we have to evolve otherwise we will eventually die.
I was downloading Mountain Lion yesterday morning. I tried to install it on my 11 month old MacBook Pro, but unfortunately it turned out that I had 8 bad sectors on the harddrive (surprised as I normally run disk utility pretty often). I tried to repair it with disk utility… but that wasn’t possible!
The upgrade failed and I was not able to get to my data Drove to the Apple Store and they replaced the harddrive without any cost (I did have Apple Care), but I decided that it was time to upgrade and time to sell the “old” MacBook ProAbsolutely love the new MacBook Pro Retina! http://codecanyon.net/forums/thread/macbook-pro-or-air/69790?page=3#614342
Just picked up my new MacBook Pro Retina today! It is absolutely amazing. Blazing fast and really nice thin and portable. It only weighs 4.46 pounds (2.02 kg) for the 15”. 16 GB memory and 768 GB flash storage!
Of course the Air is lighter with only 2.96 pounds (1,34 kg), but its only 13” and nowhere as powerful. Then of course there is the price difference
Congratulations …and best wishes!
Unfortunately it doesn’t look like much has happened since Carmen passed this on to the “relevant” staff. Nobody really wants to touch this! How hard can it be to come with some kind of official stand on this?
I don’t think you can compare the two. I guess the reason why the resolution is slightly better on the Air is that its a new device (just upgraded). What is sweet about the Air is of course the overall weight and that it has Flash storage.
I guess its fine for programming, but I wouldn’t go with the Air if you do heavy graphics with illustrator and photoshop.
I have the 15” MacBook Pro my self. Unfortunately I didn’t go with Flash storage, but my plan is to replace the harddrive with 512GB Flash. When I’m in the office I connect it to the 27” Apple Thunderbolt display. It is a great setup!
I find it really frustrating that we have to tell customers each week that Codecanyon doesn’t offer A developer license, which let the customer use the plugin on multiple websites. We get requests EVERY week for this.
We asked for this more than a year ago first time and if you read through this thread you will see both frustrated authors and customers enquiring about this. What is the reason why we can’t get an official statement on this?
Besides that we do love the Envato marketplace … Keep up the good work
