It is the 8th day waiting for the review of my item in the Marketing category. Also in the last 8 days (from 29th June) there are only two approvals in the same category. What is happening? I bet you forget the Marketing category, there is no other explanation.

It’s possible that they move more people from other categories to WP and other more profitable for some time …

But I do not believe in fairy tales with increased traffic or some plugin bug. We all have seen what has happened over the past 2 weeks … page was offline a lot of time.

For me they have some script problem and they must make many DB updates etc. or ddos attacks.

Yeah, I know and I fully understand that some other categories are more profitable. But in the Marketing category in the last 8 days only two approvals, really? It sounds so weird and abnormal.

I don’t know what the problem is, but I hope Envato to end this soon enough, because there are so many complaints in the last time. And I am one of the complainants too.

You should be happy with this. Yes, you need to wait now (2-3 weeks maybe) but after your item will get approve you will stay at the top of your category for a lot of days before other themes will drag your item out of a page. If your item get approve in 1-2 days you will get +50 items per day in your category and NOBODY will find and buy your item. Wait and then get stable money much better then don’t wait and does not get any money.

Always chat with your user and make all things clear in chat. If then you know that this is client fault (not your) and this can be viewed by your CHAT (some proof that your work WAS done before client breaked something or so) you should always dispute (why not?). We won a lot of disputes, because envato staff reviewed chat messages and see that we done all that covered by our service or client brief.

So the key of success here: 1) Always write some messages to client in chat when you done some part of work (if work complex divide it by small tasks and write about every task finished) 2) Always create some work brief BEFORE start work (if client does not provided good detailed brief), add it to your message and ask user to write that he AGREE with this brief. 3) If client request cancel and refund always use dispute if this is not your fault and you already done some work (even not all work).

Its not work if you don’t spend something like 10 000$ per week or more. This topic already discussed several times here on forums. Your visitors from ads go and buy NOT YOUR themes, because you advertise Themeforest website with A LOT OF THEMES, and people go out from your item page to NOT YOUR items and buy it (because your item is not the best and 1st place item in marketplace).

This is not possible because Envato is not a Bank and does not have its own registered virtual payment currency (like WebMoney WMZ, PayPal USD, etc). With current type of company that Envato have this is not allowed by law. So we will never see this feature.

The main problem (maybe already listed here) that ADD TO CART button located at the VERY BOTTOM of everything on mobile item page. If user clicked READ MORE link he see long long description for item (in usual WP themes this is METERS of scrolling) and only then after everything user will see add to cart button and price. This is not good. Price and add to cart button should be located at top (after main theme image and preview button) because this is very important information so user can easy access it and buy theme quickly.

I like support prices structure, it’s very stimulates buyers to buy support early. Waiting for working with new support rules.

Dear Envato,

I see no use of template without the demo content in it. Because the reason why we buy templates is the faster turn over of the website. Place ones content and pictures in demo content and thats it. This template has already taken a lot of time of mine. I see no further wasting my time rather buy a new tempalte from somewhere else. It would be great if you refund my money as i can use it for buying another.

Thanks for all your support.

Regards, Vancha

This is not authors problem if you use very cheap hostings that does not allow you anything except of very simple default wordpress themes that does not require anything. Importing demo content always require a lot of server memory and time, and if your hosting very cheap and does not allow you to set this values for PHP this is not a authors problem. Demo content is not a part of theme (this is free staff provided for you by author), you paid for theme, not for demo content and can’t get refunds for this. This is your problem to have good hosting to run premium complex wordpress themes that require a lot of memory RAM/time settings.

For example If you buy new nextgen PC game with super graphics and its does not run on your old cheap PC with Windows 95 this is not a game developer problems and you can’t return money for this. Web scripts (themes, wordpress, etc) does not have any difference with this, this is software (web software) and its developers does not have any relations to hardware limitations where you run this software.

If any premium plugin bundled with theme you DONT NEED to have key for this plugins. Just dismiss messages from plugins that ask you to input key for auto updates/etc. Theme authors WILL NOT provide you keys for plugins (and nobody will share code for you) because this code valid only for ONE DOMAIN. You don’t need to buy plugins separately. Themes already included latest suitable plugins (new version will be added in theme updates by theme authors and you can update plugin manualy). If you update plugin yourself this can break theme, because it does not tested for new plugin version compatibility yet because author does not included new plugin version to theme (wait for this, author will include new version when he make sure that it suitable for theme). I does not know why most of all users does not understand this and always asking for keys. You bought only theme, not any plugins included, all of this plugins included by theme author free for you, but you will not get any keys for this plugins and you don’t need to use it, you can’t update this plugins yourself, you don’t bought it (and you DON’T NEED to update it yourself before author update it in new theme version).
