I send my application for Payoneer US Payment service 1.5 months ago, but didn’t receive any answer yet. I tried live chat few times to know about the progress but they always say that my request is still under review. I want to connect my card with Skrill.
Does anyone here applied for this service and how much time you wait before it approved?
Your suggestion only good if you look from rejected authors point of view.
From Envato side this will be just useless spent of resources (reviewers time) to rate each item like this. There is enough authors here who produce items with enough quality in all terms. ThemeForest don’t look for new authors today, so they will not teach you if you not good enough for example in design.
Just cooperate with a good designer and work together. You will never be competitive here alone, not today.
One you can find on CodeCanyon called “Hide My WP”.
Been staring at it for 5 minutes. http://1.bp.blogspot.com/-Cac9fd-Vdds/UVS1VqTzdYI/AAAAAAAAABo/rXtsNfL-3I0/s320/qjjlkGm.gif
Well thank you, not I will spent all night watching on this!
Or can try your luck on CodeCanyon. Think on the idea and write a plugin (jQuery or WP), and if its become popular then you can make nice money for a long time. Of course, a lot of items on CC are not profitable (or low), but if you really come with great idea and item that make life easier for many people then you will succeed.
The current model here at envato encourages us to put our creations in the hands of more people, the more people buy, the more you make. If it were priced higher, less people can afford it, less people engaging with your product reduces the probability of improvements you can add to it, as only a handful will report issues or discover them.
This have a point, but not in this case. Prices on CC are minimal, agree? And in the same time, most of authors are not happy with the sales. I think you will agree too.
So, as was mentioned above, one of the reason of the low price is that there are some alternatives that are freely available. But nobody will buy a premium product if he can replace it with free one and all his needs will be satisfied. Our plugin is top notch, and it is in the niche where you don’t count on 1000+ sales, but for 300-500 maximum. So, the only way to get some money with it is higher price, and the buyers that look for features presented in our plugin, and not in any others.
The whole point of us working on this items was to do Elite item, for the higher price. The model of “cheap > a lot of sales = profit” will not work for most CC items. So, we thinking now to move our product on the separate website and remove it from CC.
