Hello Envato and other authors!
I want to suggest an increase to authors commission from 70 -> 80% as max point. I dont think its a bad suggestion given that we the authors are the primary fuel that drives envato market place. And for the hard work we put in with developing items and providing support for items.
Perhaps span out more for the higher commission levels such as $250k volume for 80% commission.
What do other authors think about this?
Another nice addition could be: when buyers post comments, allow them to select type of t comment. Such as customization, bug report, plugin issues etc.
This will be a great addition. As a author of one of the high demand plugins on codecanyon I come across lot of these issues with support. And support is a key part is the success of my plugins.
I would also like to suggest that when the 6 months support for buyer has ran out a clear way of indicating this on item comments so Authors can see whether the buyer is within the 6 months support period or not.
I would also like to see that other buyer be able to reply to item comments or use @ sign to address others which actually works.
But at the same time if you are going to offer paid support them those buyer will think they should get higher priority over others and that is difficult when you are trying to answer all the comments in the queue first come first serve.
Anyways I am excited to see what the final results of this process would be.
Yea we had that happen too. We had a user request pre-purchase help, post-purchase help and we even created for him a specific example of his plugin usage, and it worked perfectly, but he gave us a 1-star because HE DIDN’T KNOW how to use the plugin.
Sad that this happens, and when he asked for refund and i asked Envato to refund it and remove his 1-star, they did nothing and we had no response from either Envato about the issue, or the user who now has a perfectly good working plugin, but still won’t answer messages, forum emails, or comment board.
Oh and this was all after the user called our plugin a POS. haha
Thanks for the info guys. I got the same email. For a second I thought these guys were addressing specifically to my plugin—just a mere generic email.
I tried the plugin-check with out theme-check and didnt work.Along with WP_DEBUG also try this.
define('WP_DEBUG_DISPLAY', false); // Turn forced display OFF define('WP_DEBUG_LOG', true); // this will log issues in wp-content/debug.log
Also another good plugin to test is Debug bar http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/debug-bar/
Not sure why anyone would say that, Ashanjay, there were only 8 items in the WordPress > Calendar category before we began this Most Wanted Event. The fact of the matter is that we’re obviously requesting more items right now and now is the perfect time to make a little extra money by submitting to the category. Hope you’re available to enter, good luck if so!
Not sure if I can enter the competition with the plugin I have already in the market place. But however I am planning to add several new features to this plugin in the next month or so.
i thought the calendar section was over populated – is what one of your reviewers said when i first submitted http://codecanyon.net/item/ajde-event-calendar-wp-plugin/1211017. And here you are asking for more calendars??
Obviously you are not the first to come up with the idea
