Make a website for your item (check my ucm pro). Most of my sales come from that.

Doing AdWords on CodeCanyon item pages is a little pointless because Envato already bids on popular keywords and will more than likely outbid what you’re willing to spend, so best to put AdWords on your own dedicated website/landing page.

Yes, it’s always been this way, but the new changes change the way you report your taxes. If you have an item that sells for $18 and you get 50% of the sale, than you normally would report $9. Well with the recent changes, you now need to report that you earned $14.40 and $5.40 is an expense for the author fee. Hope that helps explain :)

@StencilMedia

Well isn’t it that when you report $14.40 instead of $9, you pay more taxes..

If you report $14.40 with $5.40 as a business expense then you will be only taxed on the final figure ($9 – same as before) so you do not pay more taxes. Please speak with your local tax advisor as this forum is not the place to receive tax advice.

Business as usual here in terms of sales and conversions.

It has only been 6 days, so it’s a little hard to tell. But so far absolutely no change at all (especially when values are averaged out over the week, and also compared to same time last year).

Sales fluctuate for all sorts of reasons. False causality.

The statement page looks like a mess guys ! .... Please give an option to view the older version (Without the new “Author Fee” ). Just give us an option to hide it or move them to a new page please.
+100 yes please.

This has been discussed. Just click the + and choose “Sale” from the drop down. Simple.

Thanks for the pull request, that’s awesome! I didn’t had time to fix it myself :)

I’m on my phone right now but I’ll see if I can merge that through so it starts working again

I’ve got a few people who help out on my forum and in turn I implement the occasional new feature for them (as a kind of payment). This just happened, I never asked anyone in particular to assist me. But yes, the majority of people don’t answer other peoples q’s

Having it public works great, I’m using the “Google Search” feature every day to search my website for a previous answer (the Google Site Search will return results from my FAQ and the Forum, really handy). There is no “buyer verification” on my forum because I handle the occasional pre-sales question. I’m thinking of adding a little “verified” badge next to verified authors, and stuff like “power user!” for those who have purchased multiple copies or help out on the forum.

Also have the email support for private tickets (FTP etc..).

Licensing and Disclaimers sound a little off topic to this recent Statements/Invoice release. It certainly sounds interesting, feel free to open a new thread for discussion on that.
