Text marketplaceA marketplace for original content would be very useful, actually. People who buy themes may have a few empty pages to fill!
This is an empty page, the empty page is a beautiful empty page because it’s empty, also empty means very empty because this page is empty… did I mention the page is empty?
Well In my case I’m experimenting some down on my sales since the last two day… hopefully this would get to normal soon…
big sales drops for me after this new “Buy Now” feature, I had hardly days with 0 sales but but after this new feature I had 1 sale in 2 days, don’t know what is the exact cause for the drop of my sales
It’s disappointing that the price display will not change despite the large out-pour of community members against the current display.
Honestly I still can’t figure out what the motive is here. The only thing I can think of is that Envato anticipates that deposits will soon become extinct and therefore it makes sense to cater to the non-deposit crowd.
The changes and the move forward is impressive beyond belief. Envato is really one of the best things that happened to internet over the past years, good luck guys!!
As for the BIN option… The “buy now” option allows me to earn 60 cents more per sale, which can become an extra 60 bucks from the next 100 items sold at Buy Now. Not bad!
As an author – it’s a gain, as a referral, which is my main stream of revenue from Envato, it’s a loss since instead of depositing minimum 20$, referred person can spend as little as 3$. So, since the option was introduced, my referral income halved instantly… Guess now I’ll have to make a bigger emphasis on selling my own items here, but hey, winter is a high time to get creative!!
I agree, Envato is leading the marketplace scene. I must admit I tried other marketplaces before I decided to become exclusive here. Let’s hope the choice was right.
I’m happy with everything except the emphasis on the higher price. I have had 1 sale since I was implemented, and that really sucks! It is especially bad for the items which are priced at deposit options, I.e: $20, $40 etc.
Because now, as DS has mentioned previously, for anyone who would be taking a quick glance at the price, and who is familiar with the previous system, would avoid that item…
hmm.. 28% of people are using buy now, which explains why sales have dipped. obviously saving $2 is not a big incentive to deposit.
You need to do what all good stock sites do and offer a progressive scale of discounts for bulk deposits.
Also a shopping cart would be great as it would encourage buy now buyers to buy more to save on the $2 “processing fee”.
