And if I understand correctly, authors will no longer get any cut from 2$ fee that was added to final item price if buyer pays directly through PayPal? You’re breaking my balls, Envato!

Yes, that is the takeaway. Although, to make you feed good about yourself, you can now say that you only pay 12.5% author fee to Envato

Some people seem to forget that recently all prices of themes and templates were raised so even if you’ll don’t get your part from 2$ surcharge you’ll still earn more

Keeping things simple, increasing the price would reduce the sales, so it would benefit / harm Envato and authors equally.

By not giving us the surcharge anymore, it’s as simple as increasing Envato income by reducing our payouts.

People are so confused by the new fee rules, they are forgetting the anger over the mandatory-support issue. Well played, Envato ;)

Why not just offer two things to buyers: 1) same price = no support, and 2) higher price = with 6 months support. No mandatory stuff. Why impose support to authors who don’t want to? Just incentivise those who do give support.

The easiest solution. Also, if someone choses to opt-out, he can still sell support outside.

The new fee structure has no effect whatsoever, for the buyer or the authors (exclusive).

I’m starting to think this was an attempt to confuse the authors to get attention off the mandatory-support issue.

The new fee structure was super confusing at first. Coming here, the only conclusion I draw is that authors will be drawing less money since they won’t get a part of the $2 anymore

I subscribe to what premitheme and Makis77 said. You guys don’t offer any kind of tools in regards to support but you want to make the support mandatory?

This is the part I hate the most. Envato wants to make support mandatory, and take a 30% cut, over just a ‘policy’ change. Would this mean I can’t sell my support anymore? What next, paid customisations, so I can’t charge for customisations anymore?

Envato is a dominant force, but you can only stretch a rubber-brand so much before it breaks. A year ago, I worked months on end to make items for CC. Nowadays, I think of pulling them off.

From what I understand, Envato will be charging 30% of the support price, without giving the authors any tool for Support – just policy changes.

Forget providing us tools – we authors don’t even have the developer resources (read OAuth) for building the tools ourselves.

Does this also mean that I can’t charge people separately for support anymore, since it would break exclusivity?
