Why the heck all this complication?
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.
The other day, I had this idea: A CC/TF installer plugin. Any user can download the plugin and connects it to his CC/TF account. He buys some products on the CC/TF site and then from his WordPress admin panel he can install these products. This will solve many problems for authors. Actually, many users don’t know how to properly install a plugin and struggle (or never do) updates.
So instead of each author implementing an auto-update solution, this can solve it for everyone. What do you think?
nah, that’s a very bad idea. so if you file/application/envato is down, your client is down too. and that’s probably going to happen many times.
