I personall did not come across one yet. No where on internet any institution charges $2 dollar extra because purchaser paying via PayPal. I had made 99 purchases till now, and total of $198 US Dollars I paid extra.

That is: One Hundred Ninety Eight Dollars ! Is that FREAKING fair deal ?

$3 dollar timelapse clock project costing me $5 dollars.

Let’s skip the subject of deposit money into my account this way I won’t pay $2 dollars extra…

Why should I TIE my money with videohive?

Bottom line… I am not going tobe a SUCKER anymore…

Either videohive stops charging $2 extra for PayPal payment, otherwise I going to stop making any future purchases.

Simple is that…

I do not find dollar bills and pic it up on sidewalks of USA , We earn it HARD WAY !!!

hi there every one here to earn some money dude :) if you are buying projects by giving extra 2$ that means you have advantage of that project.

You have purchased 99 items that means a lot and envato offers various deposits which will be more comfortable for buyers. If you have a use of projects in future that you want to purchase in videohive please wakeup and be wise.

At the Envato marketplaces prices are much more than cheap. Producing any of these templates that you bought cost over $1000 when you order them via some Agency, you need to look brighter side you get an item for $10 – $35 (real worth is $1000 and more per item) in that case $198 is not so big fee for 99 items that you bought ;) Good author will never sell their work for small price.

There’s a big difference between working hard and working smart. Just deposit $20 in your account and take it from there. I’ve bought 360 items since I’ve been here and I’ve not had to pay $720. Why? Because I topped up my account as and when it was needed.

Sure, it’s not ideal. Yes, it’s a way to make more money… but it is what it is and if you’re providing video editing/production/motion graphics services as a professional service then you should have $20 lying around.

Sorry, that’s just the way I see it.

Agree 198 is good amount of money but if count how much you spend totally and value you get. I don’t think $198 would be valuable.

>Either videohive stops charging $2 extra for PayPal payment, otherwise I going to stop making any future purchases.

If you are stop buying here you will not be able to get cheap items anymore. Even +$2 it’s still cheap, is not it? So it sounds kind of self punishment rather not a big issue for Envato or authors.

Deposits works better. Btw I still wonder why people buying $30 items for $32 while it just few mouse clicks more to deposit $30 from Paypal first.

Best Regards, Andrey

Not to sound rude, but good luck finding a marketplace with such high quality items at even remotely the price that Envato has.

The $2 charge is not bad at all, and the people making these templates need to make a living, it’s fine.

I think envato have a small problem in marketing.

this 2$ more is (and should be promoted as) : “deposit 20$ minimum and get 2$ discount on each item.

One may argue is a fee for paypal or whatever but is not. Those money don’t go to paypal. The author get his percentage from those 2$ each time a sale is made by direct purchase. So is no fee for direct purchase, the amount with 2$ more is the actual price of the item.

On the other hand this type of threads are not frequent, so don’t know how important this issue is for buyers.

Just my particular opinion but I think you should start seeing this marketplace in the long run for what it is, an asset to your work. Even if you deposit 20$ today and use only 3$ now you will certainly purchase something else next week or in two months since prices are really low in some categories (like footage)

Hope you will stay with us in the future :)

Can anyone of you responders, show me or give me an web ady where they are charging extra $2 dollars for paypal payment? NONE. If they split the $2 dollars with authors, they should just price it $2 dollars extra.

Also, I am doing volunteer work, I pay out of my own pocket, I do not expect to get a penny in return and I have no complaints at all.

Plus this wasn’t a threat at all… I was simply expressing my opinion as a consumer. There is two sides to token. Try to look at from consumers point of view.

:) we are just authors, we don’t have controls over the payment part, we can’t decide item price either
