Hello,

Since the heartbleed vulnerability issue we’ve seen our sales decreasing by 50% Are you guys facing any issues with sales or it’s only us?

Thanks for your feedback

May be this is normal, or a technical issue with purchases. Since SSL vulnerability and password change, I am experiencing almost no sales in last 5 days. I have never seen that in past 4 years. Thinking this could be a technical issue, or may be buyers are not able to make purchase, I have submitted a ticket.

Other information: The traffic trend in Analytics is same as before, but conversions are not same. Sales on front page seems slower too.

Haven’t had a say in 4 days, which is unusual… you think people are being more cautious with this heartbleed vulnerability?

Perhaps Envato should make a statement to assure buyers the site is safe and security is up to date.

Yes, not to everyone. I do not see technical issue because purchase system is working for front page themes and other Authors. I do believe that buyers might be cautious about security issue.

thank you all for your feedback, it’s good to know that it’s not only happening to us, especally that we thought that it could come from our new corporate identity

@fuelthemes: are you relying purely on the themeforest community or are you advertsing your items elsewhere or via altnerative adv channels (e.g. google ads) ? thanks in advance for your feedback UOU

After bombastic last week, at weekend sales decreased a little bit. But today everything is normalising …

FIY: we do not do any paid advertising. I think there is nothing wrong with themeforest, SSL security nor heartbleed stuff.

So don’t worry at all…
