One of your biggest and fastest-growing competitors recently confirmed to me that their business model is a “reseller/commission” and the commission is always 70%, even if you just started selling or have sold $1 million worth of products, and there is no “exclusivity” monopoly-like rules over there.
Can you share this on personal message please?Thanks
+1 – me too pls
really thinking about removing my CC items as well :/ (have to look for php marketplace alternative)
should be the same – because the prices are net ones (w/o VAT)
EU buyers who provide a valid EU VAT number as well as buyers who confirm their country is not located in the EU will not be charged VAT on Envato Market. For EU non-business buyers (without a VAT registration number), when we begin charging VAT, we will add VAT based on the rate in their country of residence to the list price of the item(s) at time of purchase. As Envato will be managing VAT compliance, authors will not need to worry about this aspect of selling their work. That rollout of exclusive VAT is scheduled for the coming weeks. Until it is released, Envato is dealing with the VAT liability.
Starting January 1st 2015, due to a change in VAT laws in the EU, Envato is responsible for determining, collecting and remitting VAT for all Envato Market purchases by EU buyers, regardless of the author’s location. Envato will send VAT for EU buyers’ purchases to the appropriate authority. As a result, authors don’t need to calculate and send VAT separately for EU buyers.
doesn’t that mean, that the invoices produced and delivered by Envato are just for internal (authors/buyers) records and maybe useful for buyers and not official usable sheets of paper?
why not just using Envato data (it’s VAT#ID will/has to be part of the invoice) as seller instead of the incomplete and non-saying author data???
AND PLEASE could you offer a possibility for authors to soft disable/re-enable our items by ourself (checkbox, button, or anything else)
the sellers (envato or authors) have to validate buyers VAT# and given buyers company information against (be)for(e) each time an invoice will be accounted to the buyer
I could go to http://orf.at/stories/orfonimpressum and take their VAT#ID – WHO IS CHECKING THIS??? – responsible is the seller (invoice creator/sender)
hmmm …. I’ve sent my registration for becoming an Envato Studio Service Provider months ago without any feedback till now???
if you want to use the theme for a single project (private or commercial) as your mentioned insurance website the Regular License would be enough
it’s not needed – envato is our only business partner and located outside EU and if Envato pays VAT to whomever is not relevant, you don’t have to account VAT to envato because
note: thats my opinion and based on my accountant’s info and my insight
@emanuelezenoni you get paid from Envato on another account, right?
