Why does paypal change to uk pounds? I also have paypal and change to polish zloty.

Its my UK paypal with UK debit card attached. I have a polish one too, but on both the paypal conversion from dollar is too much..

USD account might be the only option..

Another thing is the soon to collaps USD. Good for buyers, bad for authors.
US dollar is collapsing because of very strong Dolla I suppose. ;]

But seriously; Envato is growing bigger and bigger, they should have their own currency by now which we then take and exchange to whatever currency we want with next to zero cost.

You could look at opening a USD bank account and doing the conversions yourself? Or check out payoneers bank offerings to see if they are better than paypal. I doubt Envato would implement something like this, and if they did the conversion rate would most likely be identical to what you are already receiving, because they pay you via PayPal (ie: it would still go from USD to Pounds to Zlotych inside PayPal).

Never heard of payoneers, will look into it.. I found a nice and inexpensive way to transfer from Sterling to Zloty (its like 10x better than what banks and paypal charg for conversion) (so I almost do not feel the conversion at all) and it only works if you have a UK bank account which I do have, but that transfer from US to Sterling… payoneers is just another US dollar account..not sure if its going to help…but still will look into it..

Hi everyone, I just wanted to point out a quite obvious problem, that is, currency conversions and costs involved.

Each time I get payed here, the money has to change from US Dollars > UK Pounds > Polish Zlotych cause of paypal..

Paypal does the conversion automatically and its a bit pricey…well, everytime there is a currency conversion going on we pay money.

..is there a way to involve more currencies to choose from at the source so there is more money for us in the end? I imagine people with bigger payouts suffer even more.

thanks

Hey dear community!

I wanted to inform you that one of my tracks that I am offering here to Audiojungle was used by George R. R. Martin, author of the books for the super-sucessful tv-show Game Of Thrones. The video is mentioned on so many online newsletters and even on the big american news tv channels I am really surprised and honored for this.

Here is the video for it:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gdrxBbrUjZ8

Don’t get me wrong, this is not a “Look, my work is there and there”-thread. I wanted to make this topic to inspire more people to go on on Audiojungle and follow your dreams! I find it so amazing that I – with my 21 years – without a professional degree in studying music or something – made it into something big like this. If I can – Then you can all, too! :)

(What would be amazing as an additional feature on Audiojungle would be like an automatical detector for videos on YT using your music without giving them a claim or something. Is this technically possible? I guess many of us would be surprised in which spots our music was placed already – I had no idea about this spot before, my friend just told me about)

Wish you all the best and may similiar good things happen to all of you! :)

Christian

Check out AdRev if you want to spot/scan youtube for your tracks. It takes a while to process but than again, its a vast catalog to filter through.. hope it helps

Yeah if its a full proof, super fast proxy, faster than tor, with decent security measures, best on the market. Yeah i would pay for that, I do not really enjoy seing adds on the web of items I have just viewed on amazon etc. Its kind of worrying, that my every move is monitored.

Great idea, but there should be a way to give customers the edited version too, but with more than one vh project using the track can be a bit tricky but I think, add a code list in a read me file within the zip that people buy and have the edited versions available to buyers for free download somewhere in a cloud..

but yeah…ratings….what a drag

Last rating I got was over 3 months ago…is it just me or customers dont even know about rating system, and how it can benefit the seller (given we receive 5 stars not 4 or god forbid 1)... rating email reminders would be nice..
Sometimes you have to “delicately demand” for your rating.
Along with email reminders you can create Readme files or even small pdf. presentations with “thank yous” and asking for rating + with proper links to Download section.
If you have a purchase and a refferal at the same time, then you will know the name of a buyer from your statement. That’s another chance to write him a PM with a Readme reminding.
I’m absolutely shure that these actions greatly increase your chances of getting a rating.

I sure have pdf’s in my zips saying thanks and instructions on how to rate an item…but thats about it… will throw some links around my profile and item descriptions at some point…

I think buyers, when they first register to envato marketplace should be very clearly informed about the rating system, that it exists and how important it is to the author. \ But for the record I think it should only be rating like, 1 star thats it. If the customer likes the item he gives you a star and if he sort of likes or has had some issues with it he does not have to rate at all (instead of giving 4 stars of less)

I think if anything it should be done like so. Cause 4 stars look just as bas as 1.
