Search is rubbish now, Envato needs to do subtle changes, not change the whole algorithm on a whim without fully testing the impact on the ecosystem.

In my opinion. when a sale is made on Envato market, that should be seen as one transaction. When an installation service happens on the same product on another website – Envato Studio, that should be seen as a secondary transaction.

Therefore the author, as the owner and seller of the product, should always take a share every-time a transaction is made involving their product .. so the author, as owner and seller of the product, should actually be providing Envato a licence first to allow Envato to sell installation services on their products on another website.

Artbees is a worldwide author team with one of the strangest names on Envato Market

What’s strange about it… Art + Bees … Art = Creativity.. Bees = Busy bees, and Bees work together making sweet products = worldwide author team. I think it’s a genius name, depends how you read it I guess ;)

Well for thumbnails it’s not allowed according to the upload guide but this will probably also apply to preview images as in this case.. arrest him :P

You are also not permitted to artificially add any official Envato Market graphical assets to your thumbnails, e.g. community badges or trending assets. This is considered “gaming the system” and works against our terms and conditions.

Authors stance should be clear here – it’s our products and we are the sellers. So we should be deciding what is included with our products and we should always be benefiting as the seller.

Meanwhile, old items forgotten somewhere behind started to sell more than never.

I’ve noticed the same, been getting sales again on 5 year old items (Flash).. and it’s pretty rare for me to get Flash sales these days. but I got two sales recently on the same day from two different buyers in different countries. Could be a coincidence, but still unusual.

I think since Envato is merely the platform between author and buyer, you can’t push 3rd party services onto our pages, everything going forward should be optional.

So for authors outside of the EU, is Envato expecting authors to check every single invoice, see which country they’re from, and if in same country as the author work out and remit the necessary sales tax? What about authors with 1000’s of sales a month? As the seller, we don’t have any tools to easily do this.
