You can’t stop it. Envato is saying that they’ve never had a commission system, and that you sell directly to customers. Yes, we all know this is not true.

Instead of saying “you get a 60% commission”, they’re now saying “You get the full amount and we’ll charge you a 40% fee for selling here”.

I think it is completely unacceptable for Envato to perform some kind of maintenance just before the closing time for requesting withdrawals.

They’re just not thinking lately. Wondering where their minds went.

This is really nice.

No response by author as yet. I have attempted communications several times over a few week period.

Then comment and say “hey, you haven’t responded to my support request.” because they are responding to comments quickly.

Patience with Envato be locked in 3.. 2.. 1.. seconds.

Until Envato addresses the countless concerns raised in the last 12 months (really way longer) about pricing, taxes, updates, and support they shouldn’t expect us to give them quarter. Some of us have paid in tens and hundreds of thousands of dollars for Envato to make selling easy and hassle-free. That’s not happening.

I won’t be providing any tax numbers until Envato does a 180 degree twist on transparency, communication, and respect to the people who they earn on the backs of.

+1 Well said. I agree completely.

Worst month for me ever, in the history of my almost 2 years here.

Not good. :C

I found an important piece of text on the blog:
We’ll be providing a Form 1099 as required, for income starting Jan 1, 2015
But this is for US authors, not EU authors.

Well, the topic of this thread is the IRS, which is in the United States, after all. :)

I don’t know how Envato is going to handle EU taxes though. It might be worth emailing taxinfo@envato.com

They probably haven’t provided the forms or won’t because they realize what they’re proposing is not legal, otherwise they would’ve done it already.

If what I quoted is true, then we won’t get a form 1099 until next year, for earnings from Jan 2015 to Dec 2015. Would still be nice for staff to say “Yeah, this is correct” for reassurance, everything is a bit fuzzy right now.
