To be honest, this feels like a dishonest act on Envato’s part. I mean even today you say “our prices” then you claim you are not the seller? Is there any other marketplace in the world operating under such terms? Is there any other “middle man” taking up to %65 (for non-exclusives I guess) of the transaction without any responsibility?
Remove the exclusivity, reduce your cut to 15%, and provide us the tools we need to be an actual seller then you can claim you are just a middle man hosting our files and meeting buyers and sellers.Sorry but the percentage you cut from the sales is too big for just providing a platform to host our files. Although I’m not a big author here I’m giving $700-800 to Envato every month. Right now I’m thinking if I give $20 to a hosting company and rest to the Adwords would I get similar or even higher sales plus the benefit of deciding my own terms and prices? Just saying.
These errors generally occur because the theme has been installed incorrectly.
