Okay I’m sorry for the title. I’m just curious how did envato pay the authors whose items are in the Birthday Bundle? I mean it was over $400 worth files with the price $20. Kind of doesn’t make sense for me :D

And how did Envato pick which file to include to the Birthday Bundle? Are they tightly selected? Or are we allowed to submit our item to the next Birthday Bundle?

Sorry if this was previously asked. If so, please point me to the thread :) thanks!

I think they buy an extended license and do chose bundle files themselves. (Not quite sure)

I think once it is over they will treat all the authors, but as this years been so big not sure what will happen, and i would say it is hard to be fair as all the fill have different prices, and different values, ie people will have mainly bought the bundle for the expensive file.

but by the time this finishes it will have made at least 250,000 so you would expect each author to get a few thousand dollars for there file in the birthday bundle.

This makes sense, but i don’t think it’s fair enough since there will be a huge amount of purchase. Hmm.

yea that’s why. although it is “discounted”, the total purchase was really crazy.

Administrators choose the files secretly from each marketplace. And then pay, well.

Each author recieves the comission of 150 times the cost of the file. (ie. if it’s a $10 file purchased 150 times and you’re on a 50% you will get $750)

Envato Staff will choose which files to include, so you can only keep your fingers crossed and and hope they pick yours.
