I’m not sure if I’m right because there is no item link but I think if the description says “Plugin support for X item” even if it’s on there site it’s okay. Kinda like WPML, anyway shoot me the link so that I can have the whole idea on what it is. Kinda curious, Thanks! Cheers,
WPML is kind of well known 3rd party plugin, but releasing a LITE version of theme here on themeforest and then selling extension plugins on your own website is a different thing. I’m not saying it’s something wrong with the idea, just in my opinion it’s not allowed by current Terms & Conditions.
tommusrhodus saidYes you cannot use the item page to advertise things sold outside of Envato Market. I’m sure the Help Center would be happy to investigate the situation Thanks!
I would imagine that the selling of extension plugins is allowed, but advertising these on the item page is likely not. Flagged for staff
Eight days later and advertising is still there. Does it mean we can sell extensions for our themes on our own website?
I have noticed a theme that is advertising premium plugins sold on authors own website via theme description. Theme itself does not include these plugins, customers who bought this theme need to pay for these extension plugins via author website (not via codecanyon). This theme is currently in popular files as best selling directory listing theme.
Have I missing some changes to Envato terms&conditions? Can we create a theme with limited functionality and then sell other parts of it on our own website?
Thank you for your help.
We have three themes here on themeforest that are multilingual out of the box with included translations into 24 languages. You can create a map on the homepage that’s no problem to bring people into localized pages.
Have a look at our themes: Anchor, Doctor+ and Multi-Author Blog.
Themes are presented as micro niche themes, but they’re a real multi-purpose themes with all the features you might be looking for. If you need more details feel free to post me a private message.
It’s very easy. Don’t provide customizations a they’ll rate pretty quickly
Hopefully a month will be long enough for you to make any necessary changes. Since we see around 10% of our usage coming through mobile and tablet devices, we believe it is in the best interest of authors to update their page to help increase their sales through these channels. However, if you don’t have time or are finding it challenging we will also provide the ability to opt-out of having a responsive item page.
Thanks for the heads up. How many purchases are actually made via mobile phones?
Just a quick counter point regarding authors worried they’ll receive poor ratings because of the Express install provider… In my experience, it’s more likely that the Envato Studio provider will receive a poor rating because of the quality of the theme they’ve installed. Some themes I’ve had to install have been nothing short of a nightmare (bloated, complicated, unintuitive). The buyer’s instinct is usually to approach the service provider for help once they have to start getting their hands dirty and lay blame on them when they aren’t able to use the theme as expected.
Envato Studion provider has at least option to refuse the service, they don’t need to do it.
That actually brings up another point. Envato Studio may want to consider making it clearer where the buyer should be asking for help with the theme. Meaning, automatically give them links to the author’s support tab or theme comments, etc.
Sorry are you saying that theme author will be willing to provide support to somebody from Envato studio that got $50 for theme installation?
ait saidThis is covered under the “ok” section on this page: https://help.market.envato.com/hc/en-us/articles/203039224-Item-Promotion-Guidelines
So basically with the additional change to T&C’s we’re not able to offer installation service & customization on our own website?
Sorry but this is not clear at all. In one paragraph it’s written you can offer installation and customization on your own website and then few lines below it’s explicitly forbidden?
