Hi guys! Hopefully I can help clarify.
“Packs” have been around for a long time and exist for some marketplaces, but not all. And within each marketplace that does permit “packs”, there are different rules. The general definition of a “pack” is, “An item for sale that includes multiple, existing items already for sale by the same author, within the marketplace.” Again, there are different rules regarding packs per marketplace. Typically, “packs” are then sold for a discounted rate so that it gives the author another way/opportunity to make residual income. There are limits (per marketplace category) on how many items can be included in any one pack to prevent a “race to the bottom” scenario.
You can find the exact rules in our Help Center:
Marketplaces that Accept Item Packs
“Packs” are not allowed on TF or PD. While packs appear to be permitted on CC, I don’t see any guidelines in our Help Center about this so I have nothing to link to, sorry. Likewise, there are no guidelines for VH, but I know authors are allowed to sell “packs” of stock footage clips. I’ll get a message passed along internally to see if the CC & VH crew want to provide pack guidelines for their respective areas.
So to answer the original question; no, packs (or “bundles” as they are sometimes referred to) are not permitted on ThemeForest.
Hope this helps!

Thanks for the great news ! Do we get the badges for the past feats as well ? We have an PSD item which is listed on last weeks top selling page right now. Curious if we will get the Weekly Top Seller badge for the one already in sale. P.S. I love the new designs !
Thanks, Gewora! +1 to what I said before: We’ll see if it’s possible as that would obviously be ideal. If it’s not possible, no big deal – more motivation to make more awesome items.
Nice design! [Proposal] – Can we have a custom tooltip instead of default anchor title that will show when you hover the badges?
That’s a pretty cool idea, thanks, dunhakdis! How would you envision it working? Meaning, besides visual aesthetics, what other intrinsic value would it offer? Sounds like a nice to have rather than a need to have, but curious to hear your thoughts in case I’ve misunderstood. Thanks again!
