I think it never was so worse than this?! How are your sales this month so far?
A sale a day. Which is pretty bad. But note that there are people with lots of sales this month already.
Mine are also worst so far, but that’s probably because I haven’t published anything for a long time. + Holidays time I guess

Down about 5-8%. But obviously this varies and at any given time someone in the marketplace is going to be having their worst slump ever while someone else will be having a record month. I doubt any single author has a large enough sample to draw any meaningful conclusions about sales site-wide.
That being said, check your previews etc and make sure everything’s up and running – most customers aren’t going to report demo errors, so if a server goes down and you’re not aware of it, it can be a cause of a sudden sales drop.
It’s gonna drop more over Christmas & New Year’s of course – fun!
Check the popular files (overall or category based – no matter) – there is quite a big drop in sales for everyone. Even top-sellers like Avada and Enfold, not to mention niche items.
December, festive month, sales always drop but pick up in next 2 month.
My sales have remained stable
Mine are also down – I blame the new header
Same situation here
My sales are just before and I didn’t release any item in more than 3 months.
By the way, as far as I know about 200 WordPress themes (Popular Items and some newly released themes) were sold 765 single licenses during last 7 hours.
If your items are not selling for a few days, I believe that you should check on your item’s analytic and try to find out why this is happening. May be you are loosing some traffic sources or something…
