On 21 and 22 august I get 2 sales, sadly both sales are 33% I can’t see time when items are purchased so I don’t know how close they are to the 100%

I had an extended license on friday 22 but my share was 33% too…maybe we should ask the staff??

Happy birthday Envato though! Thanks changing my life, giving me confidence and a place to start! :)

Download your statement CSV file to see the purchase date/time. Click here: http://codecanyon.net/statement/2014-08.csv?v=v1

Well I released a new item after changing the “Download Now” to “Buy Now” so that kinda messed with my analytics. The conversion rate did drop (it could have just been people browsing the new item though). I’ll be looking at it more closely.

Someone asked me about this code, the old link is dead so I’ve put it on github: https://github.com/dtbaker/self-hosted-WP-plugin-updates

No idea if it still works, but someone with more free time is welcome to test it and improve it.

I use this before quering the API to ensure the code is valid. When you start to hit the API limits you want to make sure the call is valid, and that you cache the results for a little bit of time.

$license_code = preg_replace('#([a-z0-9]{8})-?([a-z0-9]{4})-?([a-z0-9]{4})-?([a-z0-9]{4})-?([a-z0-9]{12})#','$1-$2-$3-$4-$5',strtolower($license_code));
if(strlen($license_code) == 36){
    $cache_timeout = 43200;
    // etc...

I have 3 weeks off from the 1st of October and want to go travelling, where in the world is nice weather at that time of year? :D

Come have a beer with me in South East Queensland. Oct is pretty good around here.

It’s a bit of a long flight though lol..

You can go ahead and try Paypal, however I can tell you their exchange rates are FAR WORSE then any real bank!

the bad PayPal exchange rate is actually better than my bank exchange rate/fees involved in receiving a SWIFT transfer.

If you’re in chrome and the website is in a different language to your local language, it will prompt you to translate it. It will then translate every page as you navigate around the website.

I would setup a CRON job to reset the database every day. This way you can reset the demo to something nice every day.

Another option is to store demo data in $_SESSION. I do this with one of my scripts. People think they are messing around with the layout/colors/language/settings but really it’s only happening for them. So people could spend hours making my demo look ugly, without realising that it’s all in their local session. haha
