Hey, Yeah we do this for our work, so will defo give this a try, could save us a few hours of mind numbing work Cheers dtbaker
Did some calculations to find out what formula it could be, here is what I think.
Out of total bundle sales money, Envato Keeps 50%. Rest 50% is shared between every author based on a pro-rated amount (out of $500). So if your file is in bundle which is worth $50, so you will get 10% of 50% of total amount. And if your file is a $5 file then you will get 1% of 50% of the total amount.Is it correct pixelentity?
Hey Fellow Authors,
If you are lucky enough to be included in the latest Envato bundle and would like to know your current earnings, or if you are just curious about how much others are earning from this promotion, we’ve developed a script just for you.
To check your bundle earnings visit the following LINK and append your item’s price to the URL as follows:
http://pixelentity.com/bundle/?40(if $40 is your item’s price)
Then hit enter and the page will show you your earnings based on the current number of sales the bundle has accrued. Leave this page open and it will automatically update every 60 seconds.

Lot of us gave up on paypal to avoid such situations. Hopefully the issue will be quickly solved for our fellow author but an official explanations of why/when a payoneer card can be blocked is highly required now.
we need to know our money is there when we need it.
Everyone if forgetting that this is a stock marketplace not a design exhibition. Most buyers don’t come here to find extremely unique designs, for clients who want unique “design-y” sites, they come here to buy feature packed sites for average clients who just want a standard but professional looking website.
The fact that great designs are not selling as well as standard themes is not a surprise. On TF a theme with general appeal will always trump one with specific appeal. The best designs are always more specific than those with more standard design. This whole idea can be seen in action by looking at the themes which have been the top sellers on this marketplace for years now. They are almost always very standard in design but have an enormous feature set.
Other things like marketing can help to attract attention to your theme/item which is definitely important, but it will not change this fundamental fact above.
What a non-sense complain this is, if THE DOCTYPE IS HTML5 , then IT IS HTML5 , end of the story fellows.
It’s up to you to use aside, article, etc…If HTML5 would absolutely REQUIRE you to use these new tags, and only these tags, then there would be something wrong with marketing the item as html5, but that’s not the case.
I personally don’t see what all the fuss is about either. The only reason I could imagine why authors would feel angry about this is because of a sense of elitism about using the new tags over those who don’t (because they don’t know how to). Like those using the doctype only are stealing back the advantage which the angry authors gained by learning and implementing the new tags.
I don’t buy the whole “buyer transparency” argument. I can’t imagine that buyers actually care, as long as you are not using out-dated tags. If buyers are properly informed about what HTML5 means, then it shouldn’t matter.
As much as I would love to upload unique designs here on TF, it would not be sustainable. Sure the design would find a handful of buyers who’s projects it suits perfectly (couple of example of this kind of buyer here in this thread already), but unfortunately given the pricing structure on TF, this is not enough to justify the time involved. So if authors follow this path they won’t last long here.
For those buyers, who are in the minority, who are looking for out of the box unique solutions for their client’s projects for $35, you are perhaps forgetting/misunderstanding the purpose of a stock marketplace such as TF. The aim is not to provide all things to all men, but rather to provide an affordable starting point and feature set, upon which you can then place the things which will make the theme unique to your client.
The fact that TF has gone beyond this, is a result of competition between the authors for sales.
Apart from the first “great example of design” linked above, which could be made from probably 80% of WP themes on TF with minor changes, the other posted themes are far too specific. There are some themes like this on TF, but those authors have learned from their mistakes and will not make any more, well at least if they want the best chance at good sales.
Ha, I clicked on this thread expecting to see the usual suspects being mentioned, but was pleasantly to see the above ^
Thanks revaxarts, we’re thrilled that you like it so much to start this thread Things like this give us encouragement to continue to create new exciting work.
