^ There is no hatred about bundle contributors. The concern is just about the strategy evolving out of proportion – all hatred is towards the staffs who emphasizes the relative – low price as only attraction here. We have too many ways for attraction but sadly staffs can’t use that for ad campaigns like this.

@silent47, from looking at how the previous bundles are paid, my guess is you will get paid in such a way that you can’t initiate withdrawing that money in the same month of bundle release. It will just sit on Envato’s account for minimum 30 days. Hope this helps.

Ok, so lets think about whats going on here… Envato thinks if he makes 2 weeks free lunch (ok im not polarize let say bloody cheap feeding) He thinks there will be a lot of potential buyer who will stay here, became a loyal and permanent buyer? I just wondering how big was the loss all together, if me personally looking after (around) $100-150 & net income which is just simply missing from my pocket, and i can not find any other explanation for this drop-out. There is no “end of the world coming” or “do not buy today anything” Or “we went to holiday” period. Envato used all of us to pay for this marketing, but in the same time he dont have bloody 30-50% Loss because of the bundle compensate that. And off course For those few Authors also who was in the bundle, and swear god, i dont blame them they are also just has been used for this and im really happy at least they dont had to grab their hair in this last 2 weeks and yelling with the wall and ask “why…why?” Why Envato thinks he have to go down so deep like this, like a 5nd class cheap street shop? Really this is where we going to go in the future? Thats how Envato expecting high quality items from the Authors?

I think, these eye-catching blue banner on top of every page totally distracts the potential buyer from the actual target he came to envato.

Lets say, he comes from google by searching for a nice kids store template for OpenCart (what a great example, right? :-) ), -> landing page with blue banner on top -> “WOW, what a low price for this big package? -> click -> buy or maybe not, but -> actual target forgotten -> potential buyer for the kids template gone.

If I take a look at the market statistics sheet / avg. per day sheet of the green paw app, I can only confirm, that my sales went down exactly when the bundle came up.

silent47, Without any cynism: Congratulation buddy! You deserve that money, no question. I think we all know that what is the point with this thread, and its definitely not about grudge or anything against those authors who had item in this bundle.

I really like the unpredictable up and down trend like now, as compared to the expected low sales like the last 14 days… haha, at last its ended.
