I don’t think that good weather or holidays are responsible for this extreme drop of sales ( for me about 30% – 50%), because in the last 3 years March and April have always been some best months. Market saturation and a lot of low quality items (GR) are more likely the reasons.
If you have a sudden drop of 30-50%, you should start looking into what you might be doing wrong. Although I agree that Envato should tighten their requirements for new items.
When envato tighten their requirements for new items, some authors will complaining about that too for sure.
“Why my theme rejected”,
“Ridiculous, our theme got rejected”

And? What’s the problem? I’ve been rejectect often at my beginning. So I had to learn to improve my skills and work over my items.

It was not sudden. It is a insidious process. 2013 was a great year. 2014 I sold less than the year before, but I had a bigger portfolio. And this year… don’t ask!

To those concerned about EU VAT and how it might have affected or will affect sales in the future – in my opinion, there’s no such problem.

Average VAT is about 21% which would account for $4.2 for a $20 plugin or $12.6 for a $60 theme. Now, that may look like quite an amount, however, this is not a significant amount having in mind that: a) EU countries are relative wealthy and $4.2-$12.6 for a good solution to a real problem is not too much b) Most of the buyers are using these items for some kind of business and $4.2-$12.6 for a good business solution is even less significant when you earn hundreds or thousands of dollars for building a site to other company or make your living from running some eCommerce site or so

I also see a slight drop in sales (10% or so) which started on the Easter weekend and continues to date. However, I would attribute this to some other factors, e.g. spring in northern countries or Northern Hemisphere, people enjoying good weather after winter months etc.

No, I didn’t get my withdrawal. Still waiting for it.
I have already received it, but on envato it still is on “Currently processing withdrawals” page. Did you check pp/payoneer account?
No email, no money and still “Currently processing..,” That is the first time this happens to me.

Some understand that wrong. The prices are NOT too high, but VAT + price increasing keeps many customers away. I (and other authors) have a massive drop of sales. This is NOT normal. And this has been going on since more than 4 weeks. Never had this before and I’m a member since march 2011. This is a big problem for me. I’m selling here not just for fun.
