Or we could have a system like Google has, to suggest similar items only if you rate an item which you have used (at least for me on my phone and tablet, this always works :) I immediately go rating the item)

That’s why so many 1star ratings are there. People rate extensions only to see other, and they don’t care if it’s 1 star or 5. :sarcasm:

When I answer the support emails, I have the following text as a signature:
If you like the level of support and my work, please don’t forget to rate it.
I appreciate this. Thank you.

I don’t force the user to rate the item, I just add a reminder. But too many users ask me where they can rate me, because on the item page it’s not possible. Next I provide the instructions.

Btw, what I want to say, even with this message on each email, I get 3 ratings only after 15-20 sales.

Also, even the customers that trust me and know my work, had a good experience with one of my themes purchased before, they don’t rate imediatelly. They first install it, test it, play a few days with it and only then they rate it.

IMO, the best option to prevent these fake ratings, is to make ratings visible only after a week or so. And also Envato should improve the system to check for user IP adress, email, paypal/skrill email, etc.

You won’t find eCommerce platform that runs fst on a shared hosting server. It just does not exists. In your case, I think you are using a theme that is not optimized for speed.

You can try DigitalOcean(pay pe hour), play with it and see the difference. When I switched from a shared hosting to a VPS I had no words to say what I feel. You have nothing to loss, just a few cents. https://www.digitalocean.com/pricing/

If you are trying to run your site on a shared host, then it’s normal to be slow. Try to install it on a vps + nginx + a caching plugin and you’ll see the difference.

This and this can help you.

Comment it for yourself. Comment only the most important things, because if you’ll check your code after one year you’ll understand what you did there without reading what’s inside the function.

<?php
/**
 * My Function name
 * 
 * My Function descriptions
 *
 * @param string $myvar What does this parameter
 * @return string What return this function 
 **/
function my_fnc( $myvar ){
    // nobody cares what is here
}

“English skill: write strong” – sorry to say this, but it’s not.

@surjithctly, take a look at this pull request: https://github.com/surjithctly/Better-Envato/pull/2
If the user set the option to hide the author fee, then it subtract the fee and shows the exact amount of earned moey.

Is it safe? Where does it store the Envato API key & username?

localStorage. It is safe enough, accesible only to you.

The exchange rates and the double prices for everything. That’s for now.
