I’m sorry to say it, but Envato, you made it a whole new level of complicated having a business here.

The way it currently is, it’s the same headache to either have your own shop or to sell through Envato Market. There are no more huge benefits. Plus we still pay a huge part of our sales to you, even though now you’re now a platform and your role is now negligible. It’s just that it’s not worth it anymore.

I think I know what my plans for the near future are.

@JollyThemes : As a side-note, your code assumes that the whoever is implementing this is using Twitter Bootstrap’s framework. :)

I’m chiming in just to say that what you guys just did today is outrageous and plainly illegal in EU countries. There is no way the current invoices could actually be recognized by the financial authorities of many states, including the one that I reside in. If I were in your position I would fire my EU Consulting Team that I’m currently using, and revert to the old model until I would get all this properly sorted.

But as much as you listen to your community and the hypocrisy in your posts, let it now wonder you when your earnings as a “platform” will decrease. You will be left with some popular selling themes and several others.

I knew it was just dream that we were living… Shame on you Envato. You had all the reasons to make this right, yet you didn’t.

The ones that I truly managed to not have almost no support requests are my blog themes, seconded by the Portfolio ones. I try to adhere to the WordPress way of doing things as much as possible in my latest themes.

My next one will also be a bliss of simplicity.

It’s an amateurish post. When you’re recommending everyone to buy Visual Composer and/or Avada, then you’re not exactly giving a guide for the buyers.

There’s no thought process explained: Knowing what you need, understanding why you need it and where can you get it from… That’s the pain point of the buyer.

A quick question – is Envato going to further participate in the discussion, or was that blog post the final word we’re going to hear about this topic ?

Eric’s post wasn’t long enough for you? :P

I imagine this will be all the information we can share on this for the time being. That doesn’t mean we wont be monitoring and continuing to observe how the Market runs. That’s a daily focus for our teams :D

Haha, Travis doing the Envato-style speech :D Golden.

I don’t expect future responses from Envato’s officials on this matter. It is what it is. You heard it boys. We need to better market our themes …

// Back to tinkering a new WordPress theme after 8 months :)

Disappointing. That’s all that is. That’s all that Envato was during the last year.

2015 continues on the same note.

Hi Andi,

Ja! Du kannst an mich wenden, wenn du weiter Fragen hast. Es gibt hier manche Leute die Deutsch sprechen, aber sie lesen nicht so oft dieses Forum.

Viele Grüße aus Rumänien! Paul

I just wanted to wish you all a Happy New Year!

Hopefully we’ll receive a new post tomorrow or in the coming days which will clear things up more… Since the deadline is already here… :)
