Hi, to my knowledge there’s no such thing on CodeCanyon, but I’d be happy to do this as a freelance project. Contact me through my profile if you’re interested.

Thanks for all the help and suggestions. I really had no idea that there were so many untrustworthy people on the internet.

In the future I will definitely make my clients pay 50% in advance and maybe sign a contract or something. I did contract support, but I doubt that they’re willing to help me. I will continue sending emails to the client even though I don’t think it’ll do any good.

Sometimes I just don’t get people. I mean, it’s only $250, why wouldn’t you pay that. This person is a freelancer himself for crying out loud, so he must have had this problem himself and know that it’s really not cool to ignore someone you hired. He actually asked me if he had to pay me 50% in advance, but I refused (you idiot!!) out of pure kindness. Also, I wasn’t sure yet if I could do what he wanted ‘cuz he was kinda unclear about what he wanted. His English was very poor.

Well, I think I learned my lesson. Never ever ever accept a project without some kind of leverage. I checked out the client before the work, but I couldn’t find anything indicating that this client was untrustworthy.


imho, asking 100% upfront is totally unfear
coz you trust 0% the client but expect him to trust you 100%
I don’t really agree with you there. I am a 5-star author here on CC, so there’s a reason to trust me. And as you can read in the comments of my products, my customer support is excellent.

Anyway, thanks to everyone for sharing their thoughts. I will post updates… if there ever will be :(

Cheers, Rik de Vos

Hey guys!

I have been freelancing for quite a while now, but I recently did some work for a client and he still hasn’t paid me :/. He hasn’t been responding to my emails ever since I finished the project, sent it to him and told me that it all worked fine. This was a month ago.

This person has bought 10 to 49 items on this markerplace, but he’s not an author. He also has a website where he claims that he’s a freelance web designer. I have no contract, because it was only a small project (about $250). I only have his email, name, skype (he probably blocked me), website, and his address (which might not be real)

What should I do? Can I contact Envato, because this person has bought numerous products on the marketplace?

Thanks!

Hi there! My friend is just trying to find the button in his new envato marketplaces account to become an author. I just can’t remember, where it is and don’t see the button on his screenshots. So, where’s the button?)
I believe under ‘Make Money’ there is a quiz somewhere to be taken.

Exactly what I said, but then he flagged my post inappropriate. ?!

Cool,

What you can also do is add another column in your database table called last_ip. If a person then clicks the button, the php script will check if the last_ip matches your ip. If it doesn’t match, then it’ll increment the value by 1 and then store your ip in last_ip. If it does match, then it won’t increment the value.

This solves the problem of people clicking the button more than once :-)

Great idea! The DMCA auto-takedown app: http://killer.freshface.cz/

I haven’t purchased Amp Forms, but I know that what you’re asking requires a bit of php knowledge. Basically, when you click the submit button of a form, it send all the data to a php file (the file locations is usually specified in the “action” attribute of the form element), and then runs that php file (on the server). You’ll have to edit that php file to send an email instead of, for example, saving the data in a database.

Yep, that author should reply to your questions/comments, I know I always do :-)

Cheers, Rik
