I’m not sure why people aren’t seeing this as a very good change. There are several scenarios:
1. You’re a NON EU Author – you don’t care.
2. You’re an EU Author who doesn’t report his earnings – you are anyway in trouble so again, you shouldn’t be bothered.
3. You’re an EU Author who does report his earnings but DOES NOT qualify for paying VAT (Under the sum of 65.000 EURO EU companies can choose NOT to pay VAT). so again, you don’t care about the changes.
4. You’re an EU Author who registers for VAT too – instead of paying the VAT yourself, Envato is kind enough to collect from the buyer and pay it for you.
That’s basically it.
Are there any places still available for the first 10 projects?
Thanks for the kind words and let us know if we can help with anything
Thanks to all of you guys!
great great great!
Thanks a lot guys! It means a lot to us!
I just received a 1 star review for the fact that the php.ini file had a max_upload_size too small for the theme. THIS HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH ANY THEME IN THE WORLD! Really you must help us, especially when the requests are silly.
I read that topic. I couldn’t reply because is already lock. You were right in that complain, maybe your words were rude IMO but I share the feeling.Basically Envato ask for quality and hard work from us, (as authors). The problem is when we need help and some protection from abusive buyers we are alone in most cases.
Thanks for the backup. In all honesty, I didn’t call anybody names. I did say that a REVIEW was stupid, not the person who posted it; though I admit I was a bit aggressive.
The point is that I CAN understand a guy being misinformed, what I CAN’T understand is why we’re not allowed to defend against misinformed (and perhaps even evil minded) buyers.
What’s next? Bad reviews because their server times out too often?
If they would take the time needed for all their staff to always say “We are working on this” and actually work on it, it would take WAAAY less. It’s not rocket science, it’s been already created by sooo many marketplaces out there like ebay, etc etc etc. You must have at least the option to publicly reply to the review so people can make an informed decision.
