I’ve been using the WP Customizer since 3.4, it gets better with every WP Update and I’ve never had a situation where I couldn’t use it. Save yourself some pain in the future and just use the WP Customizer now.
Fixed price conversions will not work out well, if you can’t develop for WP, you can’t support WP, and a developer will not continue to support your theme for a one off fee. Consider a % based agreement instead.
Don’t share your purchase code details in public, leave a ticket through envato support.
I’ve seen a few WordPress plugins (CodeCanyon) now where in the download package, the documentation just has a link straight to online documentation, is this now allowed?
Shipping fixed docs with a theme seems backwards to me, if I could just link to a central documentation area then I could make the documentation experience so much better for my buyers (and easier for myself!)

Ok I’ll bite, downloading now
Just think about the buyers who have bought maybe more than 50 themes, maybe from different 50 authors. For each theme support, they will have to access a different forum, each forum with its own credentials, notifications, etc.
Everyone agrees this isn’t ideal, yet Envato only provide us with comments or emails, so there’s no real solution unfortunately other than external support sites.
A themeforest.net specific search on google for that username points out that each comment made on an item here is of a less than savoury nature, I guess some people simply love to have an argument on the internet.
How well does it integrate with GitHub?
Flagged this for staff reply, this looks like a great alternative to TGMPA, loving how small the class is also
@bitfade, have you tested this with WP 4.2? Seems they’ve changed some of the plugin install screens, though unsure if this has any effect here really.
