Love that envato after this forum message changes the prices to $22, and in the support email says, oh its $22 look, ehm i know what i saw
Right now im on my 4th day waiting on a reply on a support case, is it just me or is the support getting slower and slower, I recall year back the support where way faster, but now it’s terrible, especially when it’s a case you need looked ad azap.
Don’t get me wrong, normally I love envato, and the marketplaces, the only thing I don’t like about them is the [language removed] slow support.
But it’s not about that in this case or maybe it is in the end, we bought the plugin Real 3D FlipBook – responsive jQuery plugin, a couple of weeks back, then I talked abit to the dev, since we thaught about creating a Wordpress pluign for it, and wantet to ask permission to use a very tiny ammount of his code in the plugin, he then told he was working on a Wordpress version of it, fair enough, we where happy since we where not commited to use money on development.
BUT BUT BUT, now I think envato screwed up BIG TIME!! The dev released his Wordpress plugin and guess what!! The price is only $17 instead of $18, it’s the same css, jquery script, I find this very disturbing, that we payed $18 for a script, that’s now available in a “better” version (wordpress extension) for $17 bucks and guess what, you need to buy it once more.
I personally think this is milking the cow so hard it’s DRY!! Can’t be right you buy one script that’s worth less in the end then the new version?? I cant find the sence in that, adleest envato and the dev, should together offer every single current buyer of the original plugin, to switch to the new one.
We dont want the $1 it’s not the issue, the issue is that we could get a better version of the same plugin for about the same price, but we can’t unless we buy it again!
Hope to get others tought on this issue, and maybe someone from envato to join in!
