Yes it’s there.
The check you mention is included in the original plugin used for wp.org themes and has never been an hard requirement until now.

Phase 2 was supposed to add CPT rules, the last official info about it (11 months ago):

Well.. if I read “Themes are required to eliminate WARNING, REQUIRED, RECOMMENDED, and INFO notices from the ‘Theme-Check’ plugin as much as possible” the first thing I do before to submit a theme is to eliminate those warnings. I’m not judging anyone, I know that sometimes we can miss some requirements or think that something is not required. But for me that rule is clear and I’m not including any CPT in a theme since the first announcement.

In regards of the CDN, I think that the suggestion of leafcolor is the way to go.

It’s not even on official list: https://help.market.envato.com/hc/en-us/articles/202822450-WordPress-Theme-Submission-Requirements

Hi,

Yes it’s there.

“Themes are required to eliminate WARNING, REQUIRED, RECOMMENDED, and INFO notices from the ‘Theme-Check’ plugin as much as possible”

If you register a post type inside the theme you have a “Required” error from the “Theme Check Plugin”.

Also, what is the correct way to deal with fields that allow HTML, such as a “Copyright Textarea” and Custom CSS (with > signs), Google Analytics Code, ..

I’m also interested in this point. I usually write a note during the review process saying that some areas accept HTML (and often I comment the code with the same note, “this section accepts HTML”, etc).

Considering that the default content area of WordPress accepts HTML, I think that is allowed.

Why anyone at this stage would be hoping to change Envato’s mind or wait to see if things work out to benefit authors I think is a waste of time. Honestly, how long have you waited for a clear response on things? Months! How clear are they. They are not! Did they already implement the things you are contesting? Yes they have! Will they change their minds? Nope it’s their business plan already put in to action so far.

You’re completely right.

Same here in france, invoices are NOT valid without full address, VAT etc… when this will be fixed? How can I contact the buyers to get the proper informations?

How about going to an accountant and stop searching Google? I’ve spoken to an author from France yesterday ( will leave him anonymous ) and he said it’s perfectly legal you just need to consult an accountant, I believe his father is one ( an accountant )

Seriously guys… enough with Google! :D

Sorry, but (at least in Italy) you need my full address, my VAT, my company name, an ordered invoice number, in my case also the “REA” number (which is the code of my commercial activity). And the full name of the client, the address, and the VAT number if the client is a company.

And just for reference, why we insist for the number order? Because we need an ordered number of our invoices, not an ordered number of the Envato invoices. Now in my statement page I have these two invoice numbers: IVIP6557 and IVIP7133. These numbers are not consequently. And where is the problem? That’s simple, for example one day I can create a fake invoice with a number of IVIP7132. And yes, this is called “evasion” in Italy. And probably also in other countries.

Ha! I’ve not searched on google, I’ve spoken with my accountant.

Yeah, regarding that, really sorry to disappoint you, but I spoke to authors / friends from France, Italy and Germany and the Netherlands. And all 4 countries allow invoices with NO full address. And if I’m not mistaking, my colleague from Germany sort of anticipated this and spoke to his accountant before things went live, and they said the same thing I said over and over again… Get a better accountant.

Every country, has custom business models, that can adapt to any type of business. As long as you’re declaring an income, they will GLADLY find a way to tax you for it! :)

I’m stepping out! Cheers guys! I’m going to shut up now, because I’m clearly saying the same things over and over again with no avail.

Hi,

I don’t need a better accountant. This is the official law in Italy and you can read it here (from the official website of my country, Italy):

http://www.gazzettaufficiale.it/eli/id/2012/12/11/012G0239/sg

e) ditta, denominazione o ragione sociale, nome e cognome, residenza o domicilio del soggetto cessionario o committente, del rappresentante fiscale nonche’ ubicazione della stabile organizzazione per i soggetti non residenti;

Translation of “residenza o domicilio” = full address.

Sorry, you can talk with all your friends. But in the same time I can read and understand the basics terms of the invoices of my country.

But ok, you can still suggest to Matteo Renzi (the actual primer minister) to correct the law because your friends are saying a different thing.

And seems that in England it’s the same:

Hello Collis,

Hope you can answer a simple question.


(1) As a platform, can we:

(a) Speed up author payments Yes, we’re working on that. Last year we rolled out the first iteration of express weekly withdrawals, starting with larger authors. We’ll be generally working to streamline our withdrawals system over the next twelve months.

(b) Remove the exclusivity obligations and have a fixed single fee We don’t have any plans to change the exclusivity system or fee structure.

(c) Help authors create their own bundles Yes, we have been looking at new bundling possibilities with new team we created recently to work on this area.

(d) Let authors control prices We’re always thinking about what the right commercial approach to pricing is. On Envato Studio we created an alternative pricing paradigm using pricing bands. However we don’t have any plans to change pricing on Envato Market at this time.

This means that we can’t decide our terms and according to this legal document you are the seller (page 24, section 3.4.2).

http://ec.europa.eu/taxation_customs/resources/documents/taxation/vat/how_vat_works/telecom/explanatory_notes_2015_en.pdf

But please, I really need an answer to this question:

How can you prove that you’re not the seller?

Anyway, there’s no problem for me. I’ve already contacted my consultant and I will send a private letter ruling to the governmental agency of my country (Italy). If they will say that is ok, I will continue to invoice Envato every month when I receive the money. And nothing else.

Who will “earn” the VAT? Envato or the author?
I think the government will “earn” the VAT. :D

Obviously :D
