Moneybookers should be good for you, but I suspect you won’t be able to withdraw to a bank account. If you don’t need the money just keep your account growing until things stabilises or (maybe) you leave that place.

*new example:

What if author is from EU, let’s say France but he’s providing templates on behalf of his offshore company which is for example registered in Honkong, but having bank account in Seycheles? = 0% Tax from foreign income, no VAT, no divinend tax. Will be VAT calculated according to HK rules? That means no extra fees. And no extra fees for authors till you hold money outside EU. And I think it could be safe heaven for some time for european citizens generally

You have to realize that no european gov can force you to keep your business or bank account within country or EU’s borders.

Offshore companies are not some nonsense, European and US entrepreneurs (in many other industries) are doing this for many years to find better business protection and legal facilities.

Good luck with that. This can be a potential money laundering, tax evasion thing.

If you are not European based, and collect VAT for European customers, then are you going to wire that VAT to the EU, the Country, the EU IRS?

What if you don’t?

The EU will invade your country?

Who the heck made this law?

Seriously some ratings are horrible and there should be an option to review/moderate them

Here is one I got today (1 star rating)

“Not sure what the others are saying about this plugin, but it made me yawn.”

1. Standards evolve with time. maybe the items are old.

2. Post your items so we can judge.

is it possible that envato gets involved for some ratings. here is one I received today

Rating: 1 stars Reason: Other Comment: it wouldn’t let me upload the plug in.

Seriously? The customer didn’t even contact me about the issue. He probably tried to upload the whole package instead of extracting it and uploading just the plugin.

As some have already mentioned, it’s much worse than before. Those who will rate 1 star will do it anyway for whatever reason.
