CrayThemes saidI hadn’t even considered this angle either, sounds like some ES authors will get quite the nice collection of free themes from TF
And will get free access/copy of our themes..
We actually had a customer write to us about paying for a “purchase & install” service on one of our themes from an author on Envato Studio. Later he wanted to get some support on the theme, but the Envato Studio author refused to give him the purchase code, because “there wasn’t any purchase code”. It appeared this Author was amassing a collection of themes during the provision of his service, charged subsequent customers for the purchase of that same theme but then just used the one from his collection and pocketed the theme price.
So, yeah, we’re with all the other authors who are delighted about Envato sending revenue away from their TF authors and over to the Studio gang.
+1 to the suggestion that authors should have the option of auto providing that install service to their customer, before they are sent away to a 3rd party.

You could use xml format instead of json to avoid the extra parsing
Also noticed that figures in earnings tabs are incorrect because reversals are not included, this leads to statement and earnings/portfolio pages showing different numbers for the same data.
Issue is not author related, checked first row of popular items and they all are affected.
revaxarts saidbecause it only contains sales figure but not total item earnings (which includes +2$ sales)
