He is saying that you can’t just compare marketplace theme prices with custom project budget. However, if you be kind to share screenshots from your project, probably you will get better idea what is the real cost for a good coder to do it.

could not say it better

$45 * 250 sales = $11,250, with just 250 sales, which is pretty low for a decent theme. Even with 100 sales, which is a decent amount of sales, you get 4500, which covers the work for a month. :)

... More than often “If you pay peanuts, you get monkeys ”, wise man said. And i swear i’m not trying to offend monkeys! ...

you will get what you pay for. $300 for psd->wordpress then you will get a poor wordpress theme and it will not have enough features to approve in themeforest for sure!

so, what you saying… that all $45 Themeforest WP themes are poor quality? Well ..at the end of the day, that’s what every buyer gets – full working WP for $45 not $300

...

Really??? if you were only making 45 bucks with one theme it would be cheap. think dude…

Valid is not enough… testing/debugging/browser compatibility/security check, is a big part of a serious web coder job. Only experienced coders will do it fast. And experience has a price.

However, in some countries, 200$ can be a lot of money…

$200 is alot of money??? I’m in Vietnam , a poor country but $200 / wordpress theme is still low price. I’m working as freelancer and I got 1-2k $ per month. In my country the coder salary could be from $250 -> $1000 . And there are very little coder have salary < $500 can do a good wordpress theme!

Hey man read what the guy is saying don’t make it was it is not.he is saying the same thing that you are. Even if you make 1 or 2 k a month 200 dollars is still a lot of money in some country don’t be rude man.
