Hey everyone! I just want to clarify that the current marketing promotion is NOT part of the aforementioned pricing tests. As mentioned, we will not be publicizing these price changes to maintain the integrity of the tests and outcomes. Apologies for any confusion. You can read more about the actual marketing promo here: http://themeforest.net/forums/thread/testing-a-30-discount-on-email-templates-for-7-days/122479

placing a top banner on all marketplaces and sending mail newsletters doesn’t look to me as testing for the right price.

yes because I’ve made the mistake to believe what the staff at the begining of this thread was saying. A few posts back there’s me who give the advice “to act normal and let them do their thing” so they get unbiased results. I’m a real big donkey.

No wasn’t meaning that at all bud – that would be cold.

It’s my new way of not typing words that I shouldn’t be typing in response to actions taken – so I’m just putting a smiley face.

running big discounts will not fix the drop in sales but just make a quick buck for envato on the short time.

we are continue to publish new and fresh items but this marketplace still joke around with changing fonts and button graphics.

Then there’s this fascination of the marketplace team with bundles, mini bundles, category discounts now with banners at the top that redirects user that lands on an item page..

Maybe they are giving the $3 from their end? idk, but i’d like to know more :)
I don’t think so.
What are we doing here is, (Be a WordPress Theme, or a Landing Page Template) , “Those items are really, really so easy to produce, so we’re really ok with any profit we can make from them”. Why am I writing all of this , We all are just an employee of McDonalds.

The official reasoning when I asked is available here:

Basically, Envato decided that we don’t have as much support as other categories… I have no reply to this, I did, but I decided to move in more positive directions :)

I never saw any discount items before, (there was also a thread about giving discounts to attract customers, which was pretty neutral i guess)...

No Envato are not reducing their commission with this promotion – they will keep their standard percentage and so will you, meaning that because Envato want to have a sale with your work you and they will both earn less.

Not your choice unfortunately, as already stated in other threads they have full right to alter product prices at anytime – they could sell it for $3 (or $30) and there is nothing you can do.

@pollyplummer – probably not WP themes as they would require ongoing support/updates

All products require updates and support… while I agree that there is more demand for support with WP themes, there is still support to be given and updates to email templates (and HTML, Landing Pages etc etc) – could you possibly elaborate a little more on this reasoning?

@nutzumi surely this is related to the thread no? Am I missing something else? But yes this should be made sticky so authors are aware of the alterations to their files pricing.
