I don’t remember seeing somewhere that Skype would be forbidden. I think you can do this, but I don’t recommended you to It will be difficult for you to switch from Skype to writing code. And back. You’ll spend more time on Skype than on writing/developing new items.
Instead of Skype, you can record some videos and put links to them in the static documentation. A lot of theme authors do that, videos are allowed.
It’s an article written back in 2014, but it still can help you: http://marketblog.envato.com/author-resources/seo-best-practices-for-authors-on-the-envato-marketplaces/
I’m not sure, but, though, I think the billing address is only requested once (then it’s saved and buyers do not have to enter it again at the second checkout)
I think all the drops in sales are due to the general feeling you get as buyer reading all the stuff about VAT and taxes ans so on. (although, again, I saw that there are authors, most probably Elite authors, who do not experience this)
also shopping cart is not necessary, user will not purchase socks and shirts. Will buy a template instead.
The shopping cart was a very requested feature. There are customers who buy at once 20 templates, so the shopping cart is very useful.
And if I’m not mistaken, the billing address is requested at checkout only once, the first time.
let us know how it works
It’s because when you install Comodo, it removes or changes the IPv4 from your connection properties.
Also Comodo installation comes with the installation of their own DNS servers wich sometimes block certain websites.
At the end of this article: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/2533454/ at the botoom of the page you can also find a quick Microsoft automatic tool to switch between IPv4 <->IPv6
I always disliked the attitude and the way of talking which some Elite authors show towards authors with fewer sales or fewer badges. All Elite authors have been at a certain moment beginners too, the irony or arrogance should be left aside. Just my off-topic 2 cents.
Same here. Visits per day are the same. But the conversion rate is lower.
There isn’t such feature available, but meanwhile you can use google, like this:
for instance to find your item comments on themeforest, google search:
“discussion on” CESAK site:themeforest.net
“discussion on” CESAK site:codecanyon.net
