Just got a desktop email notification ‘that my withdrawal has been processed’. Looks like its all been sorted on my account as my balance now reflects what it should.
+1 my balance is the still same as last month and had auto withdrawals on. If we can get an official reply that we WILL be receiving our earnings on the 15th, that would be much appreciated. Im sure envato knows how much we rely on our monthly income.
Thanks to all the people who have emailed me regarding positions. Just a little bump before I make a final decision.
So, I a while ago I started working full-time with a start-up here in Australia on the premise of working for equity in the company. Its a unique position to be in, making residual income here on themeforest.net while working elsewhere full-time
In short the income I make from my themes has reduced considerably so working for equity is getting a littler harder. Especially that I no longer have the time required to really sit down and create new and amazing stuff.
If any theme authors or teams are looking for a VERY experienced WordPress support team member, shoot me an email via my profile! I’m looking for something part-time to make ends meet until my salary kicks in, in 2 months time.
ps. I read the forum self promotion guidelines and I’m sure I’m not breaking any rules because I haven’t included links to external sites.. but if I am, mods you know what to do.
Thanks, Jesse (visualkicks – elite author)
aye! started out my digital nomad lifestyle two months back. Started the awesome journey in Melbourne, birthplace of Envato. I am originally from Singapore.
Welcome to Melbourne! Its nice isn’t it. If I wasn’t already living in Melbourne my 3 months abroad would probably be more like 6 months.
Im not traveling at the moment, but I do spend around 3 months a year abroad. If you’re working here full-time and don’t have kids, you’re not taking advantage of the perks of the job.
Tim ferris recently did a podcast with Arnold Schwarzenegger and Arnold replied to the very same question you asked above with Lucius Cincinnatus. After doing some basic googling Im also now a fan of Cincinnatus
Just for my understanding: Like it was in the past, Envato GETs money from the buyer and GIVEs money to the author (re-seller model). What Envato wants to establish instead is that buyers GIVE directly to the seller and Envato GETs a fee from both (platform). This is taking Envato out of the role to GIVE money and makes taxation much easier for Envato. Is that right? I just read how Apple and Google are handling VAT in their App Stores. For most countries they collect the VAT from the buyers and then pay it to the office. So authors have no VAT hustle when earning a part of the overall price. Can anyone confirm or disprove this information?
Envato handles all VAT for authors, meaning Envato will collect and pay VAT for all authors on the marketplace.
