Added it on a few themes a while ago, no-one asked for it when I stopped doing it, I’d say since then I’ve had a max of 5 people in about 10,000 sales asking for it, in which case I just show them what to delete :)

Exactly, why does it matter if in the end it’s still the Envato who pays us on 15th each month

I have a feeling there may be some accounting benefits involved in this for Envato.

:-) Yes sorry, I did my level best to make it not confusing! Handling fees, fee structures, buyer focus!! Short answer: yes – you will be more or less the same :-) The main difference is the handling fee and the fact that we’re going to be upping our efforts to serve buyers – which will be good for you too!

Cheers @collis :) Saw your reply about moving toward getting rid of the handling fee altogether, that would be very cool, as long as we’re definitely moving toward that ;)

Plain answer is – Yes, your total earnings would be changed. Check the example QuanticaLabs gave in the quote above your comment

I see, well that sucks tbh, doesn’t really matter how small the amount of money reduced is, it’s a bit of a bait and switch really.

I think I join a lot of other authors here in saying, “damn, this is confusing son!”

I’m not sure who this breakdown actually helps, but to be honest my main question is, does this change my earnings in any way?

As far as I can tell it doesn’t (my items are all above $10 and below $70) but it’s so damn hard to understand exactly what this now means that I’d like a plain yes or no please @collis (the $100 example is fine, but this change is so complex it definitely seems something might be hidden in there)

Are we talking about the item that had 143 sales last week, but now only has 99 sales overall?

Pretty sure you’ve just grabbed the free file of the month which is a ghost theme, not a WordPress theme.

I’m glad that i did (I was the one with the translated .po file) :-)

Yes you were! Triple thanks! :D

EDIT: Back on topic, I’m pleasantly surprised so far, I expected this to be a VC domination to be honest, but all the answers so far have been very clear and concise, keep them coming :)

Hey Scott :)

Does this mean authors currently offering “free installation” etc. on the item pages will be asked to remove these messages?
