This sounds great, but one problem I see is what happens if a buyer contacts us after his support expires?
I personally can’t simply ignore an e-mail from someone who is having a problem and most probably it’s a quick fix. Even worse, he may be an “angry buyer” and if we tell him that he has to pay for support he might even start sending lots of e-mails or giving bad ratings to the item because they do not want to pay for support.

Just an idea, shouldn’t it be turned on by default? I mean, many buyers do not know that they can turn notifications on. If it is on then, if they don’t want it they will simply turn it off (unsubscribe) directly from the e-mail or search for the setting to turn it off.
The awareness of this feature is just very low.
Can you post multiple entries?
I believe the sorting algorithm by ratings is quite wrong.
An Item with one 5 stars rating is ranked higher than another Item with, lets say, a thousand 5 stars and one 1 star ratings.
Is sorting by the ratings average.When sorting by rating, the top matches aren’t relevant to the search. Sorting by rating should somehow combine “Best match” and a serious rating algorithm.
Anyway, there is an entire topic around how to sort in a rating system.
I want to suggest a feature (this was actually requested by someone who wanted to promote one of my items to other people in such way that he gains nothing, but the other people do).
When using a referral link, instead of giving 30% back to the refferer, the buyer gets 30% discount.
I know this can be exploited (but the same thing can if you create a new account and reffer yourself when buying a file), but this would really be useful. But by generating unique keys and having control over them this problem is almost solved.
If you want to offer 30% discount to one of your item now you can:
-> Give a refferal link
-> Get the 30%
-> Give the 30% via PayPal back to the buyer
The mechanism:-> Go to settings panel and generate DISCOUNT keys. Let’s say you get the key “12345” (it would be actually some 256bit key or smth)
-> Share the link: codecanyon.net/myItem?ref=DISCOUNT#12345 (or something simillar) to a user
-> If it’s his first deposit/buy he gets 30% discount instead of you getting that 30% share
-> The key gets invalidated (removed).
This can be useful in many cases:-> You want to periodically promote your item by giving discounted prices
-> You have some other software/webpage which you sell. You could offer a bouns (30%DISCOUNT to a codecanyon item) if they buy the other software you have. So, it is like a bundle (making non-envato item sales lead to more envato marketplace sales).
I think you got my point. What do you guys think?
Something just crossed my mind: since the author portfolio page is, basically, a ‘specialized’ search results page… Can we expect to finally get these filters on our portfolio pages as well? Pleeeeease?
This is actually almost the same thing as adding a filter by author option.
