Great changes. Could you add support for quantity so that a user could purchase 2 licenses at the same time? Looks like this isn’t possible right now.
Authors – your tax revenue service isn’t going to research Envato’s T&C’s and see that Authors are the seller… All they’re going to see is one single monthly payment in your bank account from Envato – which is commission. If you tell your tax revenue service “Envato says authors are the seller” you’re setting yourself up for a complicated mess. On your bank account, it will check out that you’re not selling to individual customers, so don’t worry about what Envato says. If they want to say they’re the sellers it’s for their own reasons. The money flow is proof enough who is selling and who is earning commission, so don’t worry!
Then guys, don’t lose your minds. Until payment system is as now, there is no risk. Despite of what Envato/Collis is saying, this is how things are in reality.On the other hand is not so pleasant to work every day of my life on a site trying to tell the false.
Please authors don’t believe posts like this, contact lawyers and tax attorneys in your own country. Every country and every single tax office is working different. Do not believe posts from random people in this forum, if you want to sleep well take care of it yourself.Everyone can only speak for himself here. You telling that everything is alright does not help Themepunch who are in fact in a problematic situation right now (read their post in the old thread). And this can happen to other authors, too. Don’t tell anyone here that you know what they will have to face now, because you cannot know it.
Please contact your own tax lawyer before listening to anyone here.
@inmig, I’d like to clarify to you that whatever happens, we definitely support the idea of grandfathering all our uses with a license.
We do think that if something like this happens, the license should be bundled with “updates & support” or not done at all.
UBLThemes saidI’m just wondering why would you want to opt out from this if you can get extra income through support? I mean, you are still providing support anyway, indefinitely but free of charge.
What happens if we opt out of this, but still support on our sites, legally you can not stop us from doing this, so our question is how can you stop this from happening?
I don’t want to charge for support. Support should be free. The limits need definition.
I do charge for customizations. I think authors/buyers have little to no issues with this.
I want to charge for updates. Paid updates scale as a service because they’re don’t restrict my time.Updates are much more valuable than support a year after purchase. If I’m going to charge customers beyond the initial purchase, I want to charge for what provides the most value to them and me.
Can we get a response on this from staff? I know they’re very reluctant but one year of update and support for $58 is enough of a value?
onioneye saidI totally agree with this. Couldn’t have said it better.
GravityDept saidThis is GOLDEN!
My biggest concern
...is that Envato is monetizing the wrong support service. Q&A / bugfixing provide minimal value to buyers in the long run. These are a cost of doing business as an author, and simply good business. That’s why 99% of authors provide this type of support.
What relatively few authors provide is long-term item updates, and this has maximum value to buyers. As long as Envato is planning to give away item updates for free to all buyers they’re not solving the sustainability problem because they’re not charging for value. It’s very true that support requests taper off after six months but I have many buyers from years ago who continually download and thank me for providing updates year after year.Authors have almost no incentive to do this because unless you stay in the top sellers list, you absolutely need to bang out theme after theme to keep revenue up. Charging for updates is an obvious solution, and one that I’ve been fighting Envato for on the forums for several years now. I have very little concern about whether Q&A, support, customizations are made mandatory (I’m going to handle them how I always have). But I’ve already begun a path to toward charging for item updates and unfortunately it sounds like that means not funneling that business through Envato.
Have been saying this since day 1 of the initial proposal.
The Revolution Slider that contained a security issue was back in February of 2014, and was fixed immediately at the end of that month. Anyone on Avada v3.4 or higher is in the clear.
We’ve posted about this on our forum in comments and on our support site.
The Revolution Slider plugin, as well as any other plugin is located in the Avada > framework > plugins” folder.
If you have further questions or need assistance, please post on our own support forum where we handle theme support.
Thanks for the purchase and welcome To Avada
