I have created my own solution using the stable V3 API and works like a charm:

Themes should not be underpriced just because monster themes are priced as they are. Item pricing is barely fair as it is, so it makes absolutely no sense to reduce the price just to account for the new monster themes.

Clever marketing? C’mon you gotta be kidding me. This is a good marketing move, I’ll give you that. A Marketing Masterpiece. But it is clever in the sense of screwing up the other themes because they can’t compete with 3 themes in 1 + 5 premium plugins + 50 homepages.

This is not competition, its smashing the little ones. I think monster themes should be categorized as bundles, separate from normal themes, and also priced a bit higher due to all of the stuff included in them. Also, if it’s such a big theme it could also be sold on its own website and create a business around it.

Picture this scenario: You have 10 cars for sale, out of those you got consumer level cars from normal brands, then you have 1 Bugatti for the same price as the others. The rest is left to your imagination…

Long story short, this is unsustainable competition.

How can you expect a new author to be motivated to start on the marketplace: “Ok, so if I want to sell my theme to sell I gotta…. Nah I’ll just do freelance or get a job.”

If this does not stop, the marketplace will end up like the app stores, where 2% of the developers take 98% of the profits. To envato this makes absolutely no difference, yet to authors it is devastating, specially those working hard to make a living selling items on the marketplaces.

Instalaste el Zip que descargaste de ThemeForest. Ese no es el Zip que tienes que instalar.

Extrae los contenidos del Zip y dentro encontrarĂ¡s el Zip del theme que tienes que instalar.

Have you seen that latest theme? It has 50+ demos. What the heck? Seriously guys, its out of hand. This has to be regulated.

It’s hard to compete against 54+ theme demos. I tried to compete and been working on my upcoming theme for almost a year. For you authors out there, please don’t try to compete against these, just keep it simple and try to make honest earnings without burning yourselves out (learned it the very very hard way).

I believe envato should focus on the quality of the themes, instead of the insane amount of demo pages. There are people here that are one-man teams, and this makes very hard to compete against people doing that kind of themes.

It’s not that making complete and fully featured products is bad. There is a tremendous amount of effort and resources involved on making a huge live preview with tons of pages, but it is insane. If need be, just let those “monster” themes compete against themselves, yet leave the marketplace have fair competition amongst authors.

I also think this is not good for neither authors or buyers, because authors are now working their *ss off trying to add features to compete against such themes, and buyers are expecting some things from themes as if they were standard.

This also affects previous themes that were created a year ago. It is very likely that your themes created a year ago will not sell anymore, sales are decreasing because it’s hard for such themes to compete against the newer themes being sold on the marketplace.

If this does not stop, many authors will try to find other ways to make a living, because this is becoming unsustainable for independent (e.g. not part of a team) theme authors.

Just adding my 2 cents that the sorting issue needs to be fixed. It’s really stupid to have to click on page 1 of the navigation. Still, why would I be interested on a comment posted 2 years ago ?

The feature on itself is awesome, a very good addition/improvement. Adding to what Koev said, it’s good that you do some testing with a real author that actually uses the marketplaces. If you do, then fine. I volunteer to provide feedback if deemed necessary.

The perspective is very very different when you build software for other people to use. The real ones that should be providing feedback should be the end users, not the designers & developers in charge of designing & building the product, respectively.

It is really annoying when you see software updates that go backwards, instead of forward.

Looking forward to the sorting fix!

Cheers
