Hello! Today we’re making a suite of changes and also foreshadowing a much larger group of buyer-focused changes coming down the pipe in the next few months.

You can read about them on the following posts:

And of course please discuss away here! The community team and I will be around to answer any questions!

Thanks NeuronFX!

They sure are!! I must admit, it’s very cool seeing them all in pre-release. The first half of the year we were gearing everything up, and now the second half of the year we’re coming home flying :-)

Finally, those handling fees are going away. That was always an annoying conversion barrier.

The breakdown of prices into three categories is really confusing even as an author, and even with an additional explanation.

  • Envato Author Fee (Envato keeps it)
  • Envato Buyer Fee (Envato keeps it)
  • Net Author Earning (Author keeps it)

How does presenting two fees and the author earning make the aggregated price more palatable to buyers? It would be a lot clearer to say:

Price: $100
Split: 70% Gravity Department + 30% Envato

Then buyers would know exactly how much money the author is getting and what Envato is taking from that sale. That would be double-effective in telling buyers that Envato is not producing the items, which is frequently misunderstood by first-time buyers.

I don’t get the new fee structure. Will I earn the same amount per sell or less or more? Super confused…

I agree – it is super confusing

Hey Brendan! Yes really looking forward to watching those handling fees disappear!

It’s a good question about clarity, as the changes definitely introduce more complexity into our fee structure. I think the main thing in my mind is for us to have a direct fee relationship to the buyer. It’s really hard to overstate the philosophical change that is for us. Our Ops team (support, review, community) is suddenly a profit centre in the business :-) It helps underscore our upcoming investment in those areas and in generally bringing more buyers and services for buyers to the Market.

Hey Bebel, thanks for asking, and sorry it’s a bit confusing—it takes some getting used to!

  • As an exclusive author, off an example $100 transaction, you’ll earn $50-70 with the same volume breakdown.
  • Non-exclusive authors will make $36 off a $100 transaction (previously $33).

I find thinking through a $ example helps :-)

Great to hear Collis.

Just a quick question…

The separate fees will only be visible after purchase in the statement right? Since being visable pre-purchase will create some confusion.
