I don’t understand that, you are the seller, its your product.. and you’re helping the customer install it for them.. you also know best about how to install your product, so why should Envato object to that? They rather have a complete stranger install it instead, so they can make some extra profit…
You can’t have a good selling theme, without a great design. Even if you were the best developer out there, if you had an average design, you won’t make good sales… this is why designers need to get their share too But I agree that with support, and on going updates, developers should earn more.. like 60/40.
Good idea, nice one.
What if I want to provide free support to buyers? I would rather offer my time for free rather than getting $3 per month.
I think if you opt out of support extensions, the comment facility remains open – so buyers will be asking questions anyways.. so I guess nothing really changes, except you have a banner saying “this author doesn’t support this item” I guess you could just mention on your page you do offer support, and its free.. but maybe Envato won’t like that? It kinda defeats the purpose of their objective.
But if they add “supported items” in search filter, then that’s a game changer. Then I guess we’ll have to provide support extensions.
So much for democracy
