super silly idea, I for instance have no Screenshots except the main preview images, so if anyone clicks on the image he get the image in the same size – how useful for potential buyers :/

just my 2cents

I suppose it’s is strange from people outside the US, because in the states people always see tag prices without taxes.
In Europe you’re not allowed at all to show prices without taxes and I think this is the way it should be to not make the buyer feel cheated.

good point

Yep, no doubt about it… prices should include VAT right away.
How??? There’re buyers and authors outside EU, they don’t need to pay VAT.

I thinkthe shown prices should contain the real costs for the buyer (end user) – depending on location and business circumstances (reverse charge) – as they are logged in, these information is avail

hi,

on windows you could use something like WinMerge
for MacOS FileMerge
for Linux Desktops KDiff3
and for the linux shell just diff

if there are a lot of differences it’s might be hard/time consuming to update your installation – just give it a try

We are speaking clear about “annual renewals”, it looks you absolutely don’t understand how why authors do the updates for their themes, the answer “THEME COMPATIBILITY” Buyers will purchase annual renewals because they need compatible theme with latest Wordpress software and ecommerce plugins.

and if not they will go on with their existing version of the item and maybe buy an updated license two or three years later to the latest version incl. updates for one year,where any critical bugs since the license renewal should be solved :)

so +1 for annual renewal – items would be more updated

@andrewfreeman:
would it be possible to optin to the included 6 month support but optout from support extension packages? rgds

I think this would be a viable option for people who wants to sell their own premium support.

It could be, but then the item would have a tag of “Unsupported”. Even if the author clearly mentions that he offers support via their own platform, chances are, you’d still miss out on a majority of audience who are likely to close the tab as soon as they see the “Unsupported” tag. I can also see Supported and Unsupported as a filter added to search which ultimately would convince every theme author to Support their items after 6 months.

Envato might not have an as detailed insight of the theme buyers as an author but it does know how to control authors pretty well you see.
In my case it’s more a question of price for the paid support – I’m not willing to offer 6 month support for $1 to $5 for some of my items – but I would support (as I already do for product lifetime) for first 6 month

more than 50% of my items are priced below $10
