Humm lets see i was going to buy a theme that was priced at $25 dollars it jumped to $55 dollars that is not a $10-$15 dollar increase its a $30 dollar increase which it a big difference. You authors need to pay attation to what we are saying as buyers $10 more isnt nothing but when you see theme priced at $25 dollars jump $30 dollars in price to $55 you start saying wtf! Im sorry i know how the wp development game is played here by some authors you get a your framework hammered out and you just reskin it and remove or adding options as need which ive seen from buying a couple themes here and there.
Beside authors need to understand that buyers are paying their bills so stop complaining about them. Beside youll see most of these or 98% of the post in these forums are by authors and not buyers. Maybe its time you engage all the buyers not the few that post replys in the forums to get true facts.
It might be best to go to the items page that you purchased then go to the comments section and ask there. to you can email the author.
Our new theme is in building for about 5 months now, so excuse me but do not add us with the bunch because we are not like most authors. We want to be unique and as good as we can. I am just sayin that a 5$ would have been okey and first of all, do a campain with buyers to see what they think about this. I hope that the future is not as bad as i think it to be. A lot of themes, with high prices are some of them lack any premium theme features or quality. What can i say, i hope we did not spend this much work for a grim future.
I’m not trying to pick on you or any authors but this is what i have noticed and have read in the forums and just watching the market place. i wouldn’t have mind a 5 dollar increase but when you see some thing for $25 jump to $55 which is a $30 dollar increase you start thinking and watching what you do and whats going on because that one item almost tripled in price over night which has buyers worried and on guard. Besides that i cant even keep up with the new items their are too many added daily.
Sales not going so good for anybody. Am i the only one who is seeing this? Maybe i am just paranoid, but before this you should really have made a survey for buyers. They are some nice themes out now, for some time with 0 sales. This is not good.
Its easy to understand yall complain about items being too cheap then they increased the prices and ya still say it takes weeks to develop and the prices should be higher to the buyers but ya keep releasing themes left and right i saw 3 new themes from one author in 2 days.
I was buying items all them time to play with and never use now there just setting unused on my downloads list. With the price increase buyers like me are now watch what we spend. Looks like some authors got greedy now they are going to have to adjust with the drop in income.
I was going to buy a theme myself last Friday but was too tired i returned Monday to buy it and the price when from $25 to $55 which made me pass it up. You guys keep saying it like a dinner on a Friday night. Man Ive never spent that much on a restaurant outing on myself. Besides i dont go out to eat the cost are to much when you have 4 mouths to feed then a outing would be over $75. SO i hope the increases was worth it. I know some buyers will still buy but most will go else were or just watch what they spend. I for one have a another idea in mind.
now watch all the sales drop! its really poor timing we are headed in a global economy meltdown. besides that ive noticed that all the current themes are the same with use a couple different changes as in menus and styles.
