I’m not an expert of bank transfer, for me they are all (the banks) thieves, but it seam to me now the author need to pay also the envato fee and additional processing cost (means the salary of the person who’s the job is to send the money)

This is a little strange as the author already pays, with a cut from the item price, all the necessary amounts needed to run the business to made available his items online.

This “number of authors requesting transfers has grown large enough” excuse its the most ridiculous thing I heard this month. If the number has grown also the money available to envato grow exponential. (so available funds for covering eventual expenses should grow also)

Anyway, is not my personal concern how this business is run, but please, when you change something can’t you just find some better excuse, something that do not imply that the authors are complete dumb imbeciles?

:) not good statement, but true.

do you think requesting 35$ (or more) dollars only for passing some digital numbers between computers is a correct way of doing business? To me seams like legal stealing.

yes, I think that is business + you should be thankful to all of them like paypal, moneybookers, banks etc. that you have those options to get paid easily and fast :)

fast??? :| I have to wait one week to see in my hands the money i take from envato. those are fast when you give them the money, not so fast when they need to give you money. Probably going personally to australia and back will be more rapid than all those “rapid” payment methods available today.

+1 fast? uh, not really. From one paypal account to another perhaps but from paypal to my bank takes at least 7 working days! :(
