calculator! or if your on mac, spotlight

In all seriousness, that equation might be right but it doesn’t make sense really because it doesn’t factor in the total value of the bundle items.

var bundlePrice = 20;
var bundleSales = 5000;
var totalEarnings = 100000;

var envatoEarnings = 50000; // totalEarnings/2
var authorsEarnings = 50000; // totalEarnings/2

var totalBundleValue = 500; 
var authorItemPrice = 50;
var authorPercentage = 10; // totalBundleValue/authorItemPrice

var authorEarned = 5000; // authorsEarnings * authorPercentage

What was the total bundle sales? I know it reached 5k but didn’t check after that.

it does give the value of the bundle… and I dont know the sales it hit as well…

This is what i have

<?php

$your_item_value = 10; // USD

$bundle_price = 20; // USD

$bundle_sales = 3252;

$bundle_worth = 523;

/// Calculate

$earnings = (($bundle_price / 2) x $bundle_sales) x ((1 / $bundle_worth) x $your_item_value);

echo round($earnings, 2);

?>
Had to change the * to x because of the formatting on the forum

EDIT : looks like i wrote the formular down wrong in my first post so you are right.. but this is what I used and if users do get a prorata rate of 50% of the earnings this will give you the correct answer.

I took a look at the API , buts its not giving me that data.

[offtopic] The oldest item on the Envato network is this http://activeden.net/item/3d-box-menu/11 (I did a loop on the item API and this had the lowest item ID.. [/offtopc]

The bundle made 7378 total sales.

You can calculate how much each author made like this:

Half the bundle value goes to Envato, and the other half is split amongst authors based on the value of their file. So your percentage of the earnings is your file price(3$ to 50$) divided by the total bundle value (523$).

If I’m allowed I’ll post my earnings.

so, $1692.85

I’ve made a calculator for current bundle (it works in the same way as pixelentity’s): http://www.env1ro.com/envato_bundle_calculator/?x=50

x=50 is a item price (you can choose from 3-50).

I’m not a programmer, so please be understanding if something is wrong, you get some PHP errors. Script works on Jeffrey Way’s Envato Marketplace API Wrapper class.

Hope you like it :)

My bad, it worked till bundle pack was on sale. Could you tell why I don’t need to use API – what is the other way?

I posted my calc here on forum: http://graphicriver.net/forums/thread/authors-bundle-earnings-calculator/59903?page=7#627265

well thats why, because you cant get the sales via the API if the item is no longer for sale.

I don’t see why this wouldn’t be allowed (unless you’ve already been told otherwise I guess). But someone should make a list of what everybody earned. It would be great motivation to make awesome files that could be considered for a future bundle :)
