stock items or not is still a great tool to have in your day to day use

Reviewers are there to review, and not to educate you how to make better files.

Their job is to judge the quality of submissions and then say yes or no. That’s it. Everytime a reviewer includes more details it is just because he is nice, not because it is his job.

If they reject my project, they HAVE a reason, otherwise they would approve. Why not give that reason??? Not to start a discussion, but to help the author understand what Envato likes to see in a project.

the reason is always given

“Unfortunately this item does not meet our quality requirements.”

I still don’t get how an animation that your create with your own 3D models and stuff can fall under the license of some other dude.

it doesn’t, it makes no sense

but is not his license that is important here but the fact that contacted envato and got to some sort of agreement with them about this, and envato created a rule so you can’t upload stock video made with his plugin

so his license make no sense but what is really important is envato rules.

I can agree with templates made using his plugin and not allowing pre renders but stock videos should had been left open. In this second case you are just using a tool to create some art form.

Now that it’s actually buyers paying us directly, I think a “withdraw whenever you want” approach would better suit this model.

exactly.

but to avoid scams certain limitations should be in place (new accounts can’t do it)

but it was never money that wasn’t intended for authors, it wasn’t added to the system properly so you always got the percentage of the fee as well when it was intended to be just for Envato.

I see this show up a fee times in this thread.

normal price also have payment providers fee inside. what about asking envato to cut them also from your share? Is the same logic.

@enabled Do you realize that we are now hijacking your thread because Doru’s thread about that topic got closed?

maybe move all these comments to the locked thread because for my part this debate is done.

will give one week to see if anything changes and if not will create a new thread to clarify if what we are talking about is allowed after all

Got answer from report
We will have it investigated and take appropriate action if necessary.
Time will tell…
There you go! :)
Not more than hot air till now… When you have actually done something we can start to believe again :)

well I think it will take some time to verify and maybe get someone higher in the staff into the equation.

the result will be probably a clean item page.

I’m not asking for anything more than this, because I give the benefit of the doubt. Not everyone knows the rules. I know is author duty to know them but since till now rules were split in many locations and even in thin air (unwritten rules :) ) it may happen to not know them. It depends of author history of rule infringements off course but a heavy approach is never a good choice.

the $2 surcharge is now going completely to envato and is not getting split up between the author and envato, like in the past.

So when you sometimes in the past wondered why you earned around $1 more for the same item, then that was because the buyer didn’t purchased with deposited money, but paid directly via paypal and then a fee of $2 is added to the item price.

Now you will always get only your share of the item price, not a share of this $2 on top.

nooo :D

was trying to make MediaSfx read the whole thread, now you’ve ruined my plan :)

You see, Doru refrains from using Support, even after he got redirected to that channel by you. He completely lost faith in that communication channel

Yes and no. Last time I’ve contacted support (was envato studio support staff but is the same I think) they were pretty fast in fixing a little problem I’ve had and I’m very thank full about this. I’ve requested a percentage information when uploading files on envato studio and they delivered very fast even if my tone was, I confess, a bit angry (was not expecting to get a solution :) )

(I detect a bit of sarcasm but is ok

for now ;) )

In many of your examples, you say when the item fee is $100, buyer pays $80 to author, and $20 to envato, why is 20 and 80? How does that get calculated? Based on what?
envato decided it is $80 and 20$
Because it is always 20% and 80% of the price?
not really sure what you are asking but 20% is the fixed buyer fee, is why is always 20% and 80% and why those numbers had been used as examples
Thanks. I couldn’t find anywhere saying the buyer fee is always 20%.

you can see is always 20% on this page http://videohive.net/make_money/become_an_author

(actually is not 20% all the time if we want to be really detailed about this)

in case of a direct purchase is 20% + 1$ or 2$
