you have agreed to any chances to the ToS as well.
I know it’s a bad attitude to force us to be the direct sellers and I’m happy to know what the “positive consequences” are of this change will bring.
I also like to get a better official answer rather these unspecific statements
...and is scared to show up in the forums
Each month authors will have a bulk Author Fee invoice from Envato to the Author that aggregates all the author fees from that month into a single document. We’ll be introducing limited buyer information against each sale.
Oh, seriously? As long as you don’t provide ALL the details of the buyer, we couldn’t care less about your changes. I want the name, e-mail, phone, every single detail they provide. That means to sell directly. As for a bulk author fee invoice, you will need to give us the money and then send us the invoice. You’ll get your payment on the 15th of next month if we’re the sellers. If you hold my money, THAT’S NOT A DIRECT SALE AND I’M NOT THE SELLER.
How the hell can I be the seller if I don’t have all the details the user provides when he purchases an item? If I receive my money after 45 days sometimes? If you handle everything in regards to the payments?Literally they’re laughing at us with these posts.
In the ToS (which you agreed to) it’s stated that they do all in your behalf so it’s sounds reasonably for me (at least from now on)
Please contact your accountant for a clear statement in your country!
The review of the core business model is still going. Making a change there would be a substantial shift, and have positive and negative consequences for authors.
what are the positive consequences?
Assume I sold 100 times an item worth $100 each (sales price): on the end of the month I have $ 7000 to withdraw (at 70% commission rate)
I’ll get $ 7000 on my bank account 15 days later (without any bank fees) I have to declare an income of $ 7000 (which is $ 70 for each item)
But if you calculate it with the new model you have to declare $100 – 20% = $ 80 So while I have this is $ 8000 for my tax report I still only get $ 7000
Am I wrong or where is the missing $ 1000 ?
Today I’ve noticed a change in the statement CSV file where a new column “Price” was added.
My question is what’s the purpose of this column?
My item (for sale at $ 39,-) has a value of 31.20 in that column and 27.30 in the Amount column
While 27.30 is my commission what’s the other “Price”?
The price column has been removed lately and before that it has the actual item price (39.00 in my case)
Thanks for clarification!
