That is what I call a more detailed information, thanks @Collis!
I think if a post like this would be released time ago, we may had much less complaint and discussions here. Thanks for listening Envato
Thanks for looking into this. I really appreciate it
Being ignore by the staff :/
greenline saidAgree with that comment.
This author fee, buyer fee, item price, VAT, total sales value stuff makes me feel like an accountant. Today, I have read only about VAT and accountancy and financial stuff. Feeling creative? Not at all.
I live in México, I thought this would apply to EU authors only… silly me
I know I’m still getting the same “commision”, but the feeling of paying the taxes of Envato is there.
A bunch of questions and a huge mess, as part of this community I request: honest and clear answers
Same here, very annoying:
Envato making complex the easy things
From my experience the VC plugin can be quiet buggy at times and the developer is very good at updating, but not all theme developers are.
In my opinion, as the regular buyers doesn’t have same skills than a developer, using a visual solution works fine for them.
We appreciate sharing this new post in the forum, I’m particulary interested in some points:About our direct seller vs comission:
Since our launch in 2006, our Market terms have been clear that the sites act as a platform for authors to sell directly to buyers.I still understand based on how the money flows, we (authors) are not direct sellers, is a commision based since (at least) joined in late 2011.
Last year we announced that we are making this kind of interaction a first class part of the marketplace, and giving authors the tools to further monetize these kinds of interactions.This means a private forum support integrated with Envato?
About the community
We think that facilitating connections between creators and customers creates a better outcome for everyone.Totally agree. That is something I personally appreciate to you and the Envato staff: authors we care about develop items, Envato about attract buyers to the market.
In addition, I feel there is a big misunderstanding in the way the Envato staff communicate very important topics since past year, like VAT, paid support, pricing for multi-themes items (no multi-purpose!). The forum is a place to make a community worth, the replies from the right people are missing and are so delayed many times.
I still see a bright light in future, keep the good work guys!
