Yes please add credit card payments at least. I’m surprised for such a big company you don’t have the most widely accepted payment options, Visa and Mastercard (without having to go through PayPal).

You can use visa without a PP account, just click the right button on checkout lol….no need to register with them.

Nicely summarized – ridiculous change with the menu order.

Also, I still can’t find a way to remove individual bookmarks or figure out the reason behind doubling up on said bookmarks with favorites – not to mention the completely unnecessary wording change to bookmarks in the first place?

One thing Envato devs seem not to be considering, is that someone new to the market place, will have no idea what all these logos are – simple links to individual market places actually telling users what they can find on them would be a much better idea – Browse Videos, Browse Scripts, Browse Themes, Browse Audio…

Those of us that have been using the marketplaces for a while, really don’t need the blinding brand flashing right on the top, getting in the way of actually browsing the site. We know it’s in the footer, we can also quite happily spell all of them correctly in the address bar.

Think you really should sit down and re-think whom the changes are aimed at, what it really is that you are trying to achieve (assuming it’s more then cheap, aggressive marketing) and only then decide on how to achieve it in a comprehensive, noninvasive way.

Irritating your users is a little counter productive. The last few days I found myself simply searching for items via Google – if there is one that’s suitable on any of your marketplaces, hopefully I will be pointed to it, if not, there are more and more alternatives out there, I didn’t even realized that until recently.

And last, there are some serious key features missing from all of your sites that make using it more and more cumbersome as your portfolio grows. Coupled with a messed up design, general lowering of standards of what gets accepted, complete lack of consequence for authors that take items off the site the moment support questions start to overwhelm them despite assuring buyers of said support pre sales; somewhat biased top/elite author schemes that most long term Envato buyers simply learned to not pay any attention to, and it all starts to look like not such a great place to shop anymore.

I’d rather pay more for quality service straight to an author, then go through a marketplace that repeatedly chooses to ignore these bits of user feedback that require investing some money back into the business.

Truth is, both authors and buyers can do business fine without you via other means, even if at a slower rate – you on the other hand, will have no business at all without us. Paying a bit more attention to the criticism and less to the praises is generally a very good idea when it comes to feedback.

The new header area is a navigational nightmare – commented on it in another thread and was pointed to this one. The links to the different marketplaces really are where menu should be. Not entirely sure why the most prominent links are those that lead you away from the site altogether.

Visually, it looks squeezed in, crowded. Even the drop downs look worse though can’t point exactly to the differences, as I only remember the previous ones were prettier.

If it ain’t broken…..

The single license states clealry it is for use on a single website. Though you can quite happily use it on a local site on your pc for development, just make sure, when a next site goes live, you either remove it or purchase a license for it.

If you had read my post, you’d know that I did search within the codecanyon forums and since you bothered to respond, a link would’ve been more helpful then a sarcastic comment. We’re not all native English speakers and there is a limit to how many key words I can come up with before giving up ;)

Thank you nevertheless.

Not sure if I’m posting in the right section, and couldn’t really find any comments but I find the new site layout increasingly annoying. Not only is it a visual downgrade in my eyes, though that is a very subjective opinion, the various marketplaces logos along the top are poorly placed. Keep on confusing them with the menu items and leaving whichever marketplace for another instead of navigating around various sections. That might be intentional, but if so, that’s poor aggressive marketing.

The menu does not stand out enough. I understand you are trying to promote your business as much as possible, but you have unlimited access to awesome devs – use it lol.

This last change is not very user friendly – wonder if it would pass your own review process ;)

Thanks again :) You were spot on Creattive – got an answer from support peeps stating pretty much what you said.

Cheers:)

Cheers for the replies. I did read the faq, however the wording is a little confusing – under certain questions, the answer comes across as a definite no with an exception pointing to PhotoDune and Tools, yet few questions down, it turns out if it’s a series (TV/YouTube etc exceptions (with numerical limits) appear to apply to items from other marketplaces as well – however, it’s not specified which.

Thanks again for the tips:) I did eventually find notes about logos and logo reveals being used multiple times – but then, that info is not listed as an exception elsewhere in the documentation.

Not sure if I’m posting in the right section but I’d be grateful if someone could help me understand how the 2 licenses work for logo reveals/intros.

When one buys such, it’s often for a brand of some sort. That means, that I’d like to include it across all my presentations – all company videos would have the same intro/reveal – a business really needs to be consistent. The way the license is worded, it implies it can only be used once, making the purchase either pointless or simply too expensive in the long run – depending on what business you’re in, having 30, 40, 50…visual presentations is not unusual. That times 25-30 dollars doesn’t make much sense when having a custom job done is possible for a lot less with no restrictions.

A little confused or potentially not looking for a clarification in the right places :p
