All I can say is “funny”. No further comment required, it would have been flagged anyway.

I didn’t find the survey to really be about discussing this subject but more along the lines of pricing for Envato – what exactly was the point in this?

Hi jonathan01,

We’ve had lots of feedback on this forum to suggest that (among other things) authors felt that either they should be providing the service or they should be receiving compensation for someone else providing the service. The survey questions around these points are designed to help determine which option authors prefer so that we can work out where to focus our attention.

The pricing in these questions are merely a way for us to identify if the option an author selects is greatly affected by how much they receive. The values themselves were purely an example and are by no means what we would use if this initiative went ahead as there has been no analysis into what authors should be paid.

As you can imagine, survey’s are not an exact science but we do hope that the results will give us enough of an indication to proceed.

Cheers, Andrew

Hi Andrew,

I see multiple authors who want this ‘service’, others who do not want this at all, others who wish to do their own installs from the service, others who wish for the service and earning potential and others that want to handle the install service from their own site on their own terms with their buyers.

There’s no clear message here and that is my point. Your survey is based around the fact that yet again, Envato are not asking authors what they want, rather they are saying this is happening so lets do a survey on some of the details.

I will clarify my position to be clearer – I do my own installs, of my own themes, from my own site, I charge what I want and Envato are nothing to do with it.

So saying that, an example would be – hey Andrew, I’m cooking dinner would you like some of the dinner I am cooking? You say no thanks I have my own, I then say ok, so your choices are fish or beef. You would reply, I already said I don’t want the dinner you are cooking, I provide my own. I say ok let’s do a survey then shall we, here’s the first question, would you like fish or beef, how much will would you pay for this etc.

I’m not trying to be sarcastic here in anyway, just trying to show you how it feels for those authors that do not agree with either going thru your service, which take s a huge chunk of money, and then holds the money, and provides it in an awkward platform that is outside of the marketplaces, my support and also requires a completely different account – bad experience for all.

I do not want someone else installing my files because I’ve had several experiences with your ‘hand-picked experts’ who simply can’t even follow the detailed documentation, constantly ask me to do things and end up spoiling a potentially good relationship I could of had with my buyer, as I am now the seller it’s my buyer, not yours.

I hope you and others find this feedback useful, if you wish to discuss things in more detail privately you can always email me from my profile page.

+1 for that.

And even for those who want to provide theme installation through Envato, why should they be forced to install other’s themes and 12 hours response time. What happens when an author is on holidays and so doe his team and a buyer buys the theme how would they respond in 12 hours? and that too for a theme installation that isn’t their own. Isn’t it a big joke for us. That said, I mean no disrespect at all.

+1

The 12 hours response time is kind of funny what if someone wants to lets say have a weekend :O?

Hi!

Would not be possible to allow two different description versions field?! One field used to desktop and an extra optional field to be used by mobile devices?!

This way we can keep the current presentation at desktops and easily add a light version of the description for mobiles.

Kind Regards!

That would be awesome ;)

Hi, why my additional message (invoice footer) is not showing on the invoices?

Hi mpc,

The footer only appears on invoices where the buyer and the seller (author) are from the same country. It is always the author’s footer copy that shows on the document.

I hope that helps!

Cheers, Ronja

Why is that? It would really make things easier if we could add information across all of the invoices.
