+++1 This is superb! I love this pricing transition. It makes all author’s life easier. It was one of the pain points till now. Thanks so much Envato for taking care of this :) If I am getting right, it means that first 6 months support for an item is FREE (included in regular item price) or not?

Yes – But just note that this is for ThemeForest and CodeCanyon items only.

^ Yeh could have been more extreme, maybe if they were at the edge of a cliff or something.

If you try make good money here, you won’t succeed but if you try make good items, you will make good money. Anything is possible with enough time, and focus ;)
I am not sure that is true. Do you think most popular 1st spot items were good items? We have seen couple of 1st spot items in ThemeForest, and I never thought any of them deserved their spot.

Haha, well what I meant was – don’t focus on making money, rather focus on your product and the success will follow – because the reality is, it’s quite hard in the beginning to make money, so some people get discouraged, the pay offs only happen much later after hard work and taking a risk.

But you’re right, making good items isn’t always going to get you to the top, but I would say “ridiculously good value for money” items is a better way to get there.

Envato bank takes $35, intermediary bank takes $40 and our local bank takes $10. The complete transaction costs us $85 every month.

Serious?? Sounds like you’re getting robbed! Why don’t you use PayPal?

Ha, we have the same problem so we went to bank and found out that money goes to intermediary bank. As Envato is sending money in USD and all USD transactions have to go through USA banks our money “travels” to New York first and then it is transmitted to our account. Bank in NY charges that extra fee. As our banker explained, the main problem is that NY bank sends no invoice or any kind of paper evidence of its service.

Interesting, maybe the US bank does the mass payments around the world for Envato… but still doesn’t make sense why we get charged $60, seems like a lot.

I’m in South Africa and whenever I did SWIFT, I always received exactly $60 less that what I cashed out, this is before my bank charges their fees. I don’t know why its $60, when Envato states $35 fee, the extra $25 is deducted before my bank even receives it – so it’s a mystery.

Now I only use PayPal, as there is hardly any fees, I just have to wait a few days longer for my bank to process it.

^ Didn’t realize you were solo, nice! So you create all your designs? What about support, seems like a lot of work for one person to handle :D
