I think its unfairly priced vs site templates.

If email templates are going to be priced at $10s, site templates should start at $15.

Hey guys. Email templates are currently priced between $8 and $10. Keep in mind that a lot of work goes into making these templates, not to mention the fact that many authors have to spend $5 or so to test their designs in the various email clients.

And don’t forget that many of the popular templates contain multiple color schemes, and even multiple layouts.

I think they’re priced just right.

I agreed at first but after reading this, I do agree with Jeffrey. You do have to pay to test them, also, they work in every email client (almost) and some of these emails have “12-in-1” with a LOT of different schemes. Good point Jeffrey.

I bet my lunch for a whole month you can’t pump 10 in one day.

Wait, make that 2 month’s lunch and just 5 templates. And trust me, I like to eat :D

Just kidding mate – point is, email templates are not that easy to design. Furthermore, testing them to make sure they look similar in as many email clients as possible is a headache matched only by IE6 .

Coming from 3+ years of email marketing, from a buyer’s point of view, I’d say pricing is much more than reasonable. (a custom/premium email template is ~500$ )

From an author’s point of view – you get to design just one page, yes. But sales are lower than with site templates, so it’s balanced.

This is so true. With HTML templates we are on price bottom, there is nowhere lower to go. If the demand on TF would be the same for email templates as for html templates, they could be a little bit lower, but not now I guess…

Just having to answer ALL the emails for users that don’t really know how to use a template or just to answer general questions is worth more than $10.

I don’t think lower is the way to go… There is a lot of testing and support that goes into everything that goes up here, no matter what form. The template is just one part of the bigger picture.

Just a sick english joke. I thought you will laugh as mad when you read it… Many people here use cu3er to pump up their sales you know… so I thought maybe some * * * * * will try to add it into email template too, you know…just for a joke…

I think email templates are worth $10 because every email client is like IE6 . Imagine having to design a site for 11 different versions of IE6 ! Just check out this compatibility chart:
