That’s correct, but the statement (what I get from the API) doesn’t give that info. So you would have to reupload your csv in order to update your statistics and it’s not a good solution in my opinion.

When I try to export my csv with all past sales, this is what I get (on Envato): “Your result set contains too many statement lines to be exported into a csv file. Please try to narrow down the selected date range.” :D

I guess I’ll have to use your app only for stats of past 12 months or so… :)

EDIT: Is there any chance you could implement this feature: like it now shows total earnings per item, I’d like to see total earnings per marketplace, in current month and in the past 12 months, for example. It would mean a lot to us authors who sell on multiple Envato marketplaces.

I don’t think that’s possible. With the Envato API I can get the number of items for each marketplace, but I can’t know which item is from which marketplace. Unless I start doing some crazy stuff like parsing your portfolio page for each marketplace (and potentially each page of your portfolio), which slows things down dramatically. It just gets too complicated.

thank you for this man!

i’ve uploaded the csv but the graphs for “Earnings last 12 months” and “Earnings by product, last 12 months” is not showing. all the other stats are good though.

UPDATES: it’s all good now, i forgot to use the CSV from the time i join. Thanks Again! Really great web app! I freakin love the “Total Amount Earned per Product” !!!

I will do some tests later with smaller amounts of sales data, maybe I will find out what was going on there. I don’t think I covered any corner case situations. Anyway, glad you like it :)

Does it have sales notifications?

It doesn’t have. It’s a web app and the best it could have is browser notifications, which would work on your desktop, but not on your smartphone/tablet, so it’s kind of pointless. And also running a notification service is a whole other beast, which I don’t want to deal with ever again after GreenPaw 2.0 :P

Wow, GreenPaw 1.0? I don’t even remember what it looked like :P

Can’t login with Facebook – “app developers haven’t set it up correctly”, but looks great! Well done :grin:

Oh I forgot to make the fb app public, it should be ok now. Anyway, you can login with twitter or google as well.

This is fantastic :)

Is it possible to have an android app.

Also it will great if there is possibility to track Statistics of individual item.

I don’t know how it works on android, there should be an option to add a web app to your homescreen like on iOS.

On your second question – that’s pretty much what the bottom-left graph is for. It shows sales for each item per month, for the last 12 months. It’s not completely obvious at first, but it does the job :)

Okay, so this is my third attempt (remember GreenPaw 1 and 2?) to make a companion app to track my sales and view statistics.

Disclaimer: This time, it’s completely free.

Before I get into more detail, here are some screenshots:

Mobile:

Desktop:

So what does it do exactly?

  1. Social authentication – You enter your envato username and API key only once and just login with Facebook/Twitter/Google on any device to open the app. No need to enter your API key using your smartphone. phew
  2. Upload all your sales – You might have noticed that in the Settings screen you can upload a .csv with all your sales. There are step-by-step instructions how exactly to generate a .csv with ALL your sales. You just have to do this once, and then each time you open the app, it will add the new sales to the database.
  3. Statistics – This is something that I’ve missed a lot for the 3 years that I’ve been an author. On the Statistics screen you will see pretty much everything that you need to know about your performance. Or at least, everything that I would like to know. If you take a look at the screenshots with the stats (desktop version), the graph on the bottom left is pretty damn awesome. It shows how much each product has been contributing to your earnings every month, for the last 12 months. Also, the average earnings per day/month and “estimated earnings this month” are pretty cool too and useful to know.
  4. Web App – You can use the app on any device and PC, just go to http://salesrobot.net/. This time I decided to stick with what I know, instead of experimenting with another iOS app. Tip for iOS users – add the app to your homescreen, it will launch in fullscreen and it feels just like a native app.
  5. Completely free – Like I said, this is the third time I make an app for authors and honestly, I gave up trying to monetize it. I made it again because first of all I needed an app like this. And second – as a case study. If by any chance you feel like donating – the button is in the Settings screen.
  6. Clock – You might have noticed the circle thing in the top-right corner of the Statement screen – this is actually a clock showing Envato time – Australia/Melbourne to be precise. Since you can see how much you have earned today in the toolbar, but “today” refers to the “envato today”, I figured it would be a good idea to add a clock. And all statistics are also in Australian local time.

That’s pretty much all I can think of right now. If you are having issues, please let me know in this thread.

Once again – http://salesrobot.net/

Cheers!

Thanks, everyone :)

The biggest change seems to be the review times. It used to be 3-5 days, now it’s one day at most. Bravo, Envato!

Hey,

A couple of years ago I decided that want to explore some different careers in the IT industry and as a result I decided to take a break from CodeCanyon. Luckily the steady income from CC allowed me to do just that. I tried to do some iOS and web app development, which didn’t work out quite as expected (you might remember GreenPaw). So first I figured I should take a couple of months off, and think what I really want to do.

The couple of months became a year. Then I got into game development. Having decent experience in 3D animation I thought “hey, why not make a 3D action RPG game? shouldn’t take more than 3-4 months”. I’ve never been so wrong in my life. After more than a year of working, I had something mediocre which was about 70% completed.

So, yeah. I slowly realized that game development is not a job for one guy, unless you have a million dollar budget (which I don’t). And I pulled the plug. It wasn’t an easy decision to scrap a year of work, but sometimes it’s better to give up while you can and just move on.

And that’s how I decided to return to CodeCanyon, and I shouldn’t have left in the first place. I feel sad when I think about what I could have done in those couple of years if I didn’t leave. Some people told me that it was for the best, but whatever. Meanwhile the customer support for my products has been lackluster to say the least, and I hope my customers forgive me (somehow). They will most likely never buy from me, but I guess I can’t do anything about it anymore :)

So after a two year break I decided to return to CodeCanyon full-time, and just wanted to say hello again to the community.

Got a new logo, new website, new support system, updated all my old product demo pages and descriptions here at CodeCanyon… yay white background :) I must say I really like that trend with the full image item descriptions. Even published a new product in the meantime. And I’m totally ready to rock again.

So what’s up? What has changed in the past couple of years?
