Hi, I’m little bit confused. The invoices I get are showing the item price without author fee. For example the price is 40$, so the invoice says I got 32$ from the buyer, but that’s not true. From this 32$ I only get about 15$ (non-exclusive).
So envato is the actual seller not me, because envato receives the 32$ So why is my name appearing on the invoice? Then this invoice is totally useless for me to exclude the VAT because my revenue will go to nearly 0$.
I’m not sure what envato is doing in account of the VAT’s but the invoices are false! Correct me iif I’m wrong.Thanks!
I believe this will help you, it’s from envato blog. I had the same question/concern as you.
We’ll also issue authors with:
A copy of the invoice for each item license purchase A copy of the credit note when a sale is reversed or refunded A monthly service fee invoice from Envato that includes all author fees and SWIFT charges for that month.
So envato will state every month the total fees that charges you as an author ( exclusive or not ). You are the seller Envato is the platform that you pay. I think it’s pretty clear. Hope this helps
In my opinion (I might have problems for saying this on Themeforest ), Wordpress in not better than Joomla, it is just more popular. And no, being more popular does not automatically mean being better, it basically means better marketing I might be wrong, but this is what I think
+1 totally agree, my friend!
Joomla! vs WordPressCompare WordPress with Joomla! is a mistake (and people will keep comparing), both are great CMS but solve different situations, as example:
If you want a super easy to manage website (specially when the user doesn’t have tech skills at all), WordPress do a good job.
If you want to build a website that can be extended easily later (add ecommerce, forum, etc.), Joomla! do a great job due is a MVC, which means the functionality doesn’t stick with template.
CodeIf we talk about the code behind the CMS, Joomla! wins. I read from some WordPress developers (that are big fans of that CMS) saying the code of Joomal! is much better.
PopularityEnd users mainly cares about easy to use (which is acceptable, as developers we build products for user that not always are tech skilled). Joomla requires! more time to learn, WordPress is super easy. That is an important factor in popularity.
+1 Can’t agree more! Joomla was and still is one of the most pro cms platforms but people need a light and easy to use cms that’s why wp is the most popular. In my opinion joomla must stick to it’s plan it has a loyal audience, very good developers (many of them are here in themeforest), great extentions library and clear targets (roadmap). You can’t really compare it.
September was very bad month, October is slightly better but not what I was waiting for. Hope this condition will change soon.
+1 Very impressive work, very useful charts! Thanks
Yeah drop for me too. The rich is getting richer and the poor getting poorer that’s what’s going on with the world today. I also don’t think envato place any ads campaign anywhere especially for a specific template category of mine. why wasting money for that, huhh? Hang in there guys!
+1 Well said!
I think joomla! deserves its own separate category link next to wp and more promo. It’s the second most popular platform and the most professional. I never understood why it is so underestimated here.
