I couldn’t read the all pages but that is true. Bundles effects the sales badly. You can see that easily when you look at the latest items in the Top Sellers. Before bundle you had to sell more than 65 to get into the top sellers. In the bundle week it was as low as 50. You do the math and say bundle does not effect the sales.

I remember back in AD there was a template bundle and AD started to die after that. It’s always too risky to put your high value items into a bundle. You can easily say “I don’t need to purchase items, I can just purchase the bundle and it can get my work running till the next bundle”.

I don’t think that will happen to the TF. Because wordpress is still very popular and getting more popular each day. With CSS3 and HTML5 Wordpress is staying in it’s place.

But I’m not sure how will that effect to TF. Making a bundle is not a special discount. It’s “unfortunately” a way to say “our item’s real value is this low, but we normally sell it that high and earn more”.

If buyers start to think and complain about the price being “high” (Which I got one in the bundle week) that means the real trouble is coming. Because that means, now buyers are thinking a theme should be priced as $3 a plugin should be priced as $1.5 and so on. And actually I do think prices are too low. Latest tech plugins/apps/themes are here with their source codes.

I don’t think Envato had a choice here at all. There is quite a bit of competition out there and they too were offering bundles and quite aggressively. I know this because I try to keep an eye on what goes on outside this marketplace and one of the largest marketplaces were offering bundles around the same time in exactly the same manner for the exact same period of time, coincidence ?

Same with the recent GPL option. WordPress is marketing the competition with 100% GPL slogans on wordpress.org, hence they probably had no choice but provide the option.

The reality is, if this marketplace wants to maintain it’s dominance, it has to undercut the competition while it still can. Envato’s bundle had more items in it and cost less, so perhaps with this bundle they managed to retain a good portion of users and drive in new users as well. Just food for thought ;)

Ofcourse, this is all speculation but perhaps not so far from the truth.

Price cut is simply giving Morphine to a dying person. Nothing more.

@Typps, competition is not an excuse for price cut. And competition is not limited to price – I say this with the observation of what buyers/industry expect, not as a philosophy. There are a dozen technical aspects Envato lacks from others (not just theme market but general ecommerce). Better start competing in terms for efficiency rather than start selling kidneys.
