Guys I just spent some time chatting on Skype with Collis… what an awesome guy I was positively shocked and surprised when I got the call (in a good way ).
He explained some stuff to me, and all have to tell you… why not commission system… well trust me we do not want it!
About VAT, it is not a biggy, the statement that Envato is taking care of it (he basically answered all my questions) is quite enough now for me, calmed me down totally.
If you want more answers do send him a mail, he is a super friendly guy, was a blast skyping with him!
And if you check my previous comments I was quite a pain in the behind on forumsThank you Collis very much, i am open to a skype chat any time
Do you mean 5 Star rating for support answers?
Something like “empowering and celebrating authors” makes no sense to me… (especially when you could easily empower authors by following their suggestions)
As experienced authors/community we should understand about these casual wording interests showed historically by Envato. Kind of never ending “hyped wording” habit / marketing strategy even on a critical announcement. The past/dead word ‘commission’ seems to be exaggerated / sugar coated version of something else. In the same way we may find the actual meaning of “empowering and celebrating” in the future.
From the blog post:
However we didn’t do a good job of some of the language and commercial documentation we’ve used across Envato Market in the past. In particular, we used the word ‘commission’ incorrectly when talking about rates and on payment notes. This unfortunately led to a large amount of confusion.
Commission was the word used even for the author withdrawals. hmm…
These days I not even read the blog posts fully (as someday that also going to change – as it “was” incorrect). Just focusing on work and waiting for 1 bad day to face. That’s better than sticking with each and every announcement and getting minor heart attacks every occasion.
Ignorance is bliss!
Anps saidAs already mentioned by Lucas, this is not a VAT announcement. Please keep your comments on the topic of the Checkout Flow. Thanks!
I asked this a gazilion times and wrote on taxes envato mail and got non response. Is the VAT going to be added on prices or deducted from our prices this is crucial for us, i cannot belive you would ignore us on this so long
It is understandable that as the number of “departments” grow and expand, the spirit of giving rewards will transform into “expectation of rewards”.
From the long past observations, I see Envato’s ultimate goal is to show case the 25M kind of possibilities (?) through Elite program and gain respect for the market (over commitment?). Not necessarily to make it as real reward system.
Anyway nothing can beat own goals and own rewards!
Myself also new but from my experience, I would advice adding music to the preview… That will get some attention from buyers.. Once my item soft rejected with that advice!
