Heck yeah! Thank you for this
btw, I agree with you all that prices should be increased for bundled themes.
However, I think the most recent sales drops are due to something else. If you notice, sales for even the most popular themes have also dropped. They’re still making tons of sales but if you check trends with [Trackforest] and other tools you’ll see lots the popular item sale have gone down too.
I think we just aren’t seeing as much traffic coming through as before. If you do an Alexa ranking you’ll see that approximately 1 year ago TF’s traffic rank peaked and since then has dropped http://www.alexa.com/siteinfo/themeforest.net
Also, once upon a time most visitors/buyers for TF use to come from the USA now I see that is no longer the case. Websites like Wix and SquareSpace have quickly become the more popular choices here in US for there easy to use website builder + all-in-one hosting + native eCommerce integration + Getty images integration, etc…
Surely TF knows this and that’s why I believe there recently has been a big push to get authors to build Layers WP themes as a way of compete with Wix and SquareSpaces’ web builders but still with the other options it’s hard to stack up.
Maybe I’m totally wrong, but I can’t deny this has to be part of the reason for the sales drops. Thoughts?
Yup! Sales have dropped here too in the last two weeks. Periodically, one will trickle through but nothing close like before.
I have a feeling this was done in an effort to compete with the likes of Squarespace. It makes sense to me.
This is awesome! Thank you for making this available. I am actually developing a theme right now for selling stock images with Woocommerce and I think I’ll download your plugin to give it a try. I’m currently developing it while using EDD. I wonder how yours differs.
I’ll be in contact if I have any questions
Sure I don’t see why not and your demos would load so much faster too. Although, I don’t think server space is the issue but rather server resources with that many demos.
