When I first joined the Envato marketplace, I used to get support ticket responses in less than a day. Now, I go a week or more until I finally get a response. Messaging the Twitter handle always gets it sped up but they haven’t been online in 7 days.

So what’s the deal? Why is support taking so long lately.

I have a ticket in queue that is pretty urgent.

I think the support team are doing a ok job, i bet they get a lot of support tickets everyday so to answer each one within a day or 2 is a little hard to do.

In the last 12 months the marketplace has doubled in size which i bet the support issues have more than doubled.

So since you joined twice of much people are asking for support, so waiting times are twice as long.

If i can remember Envato have stated they are working on it and will be hiring more staff, but dont quote me on that.

UBL : Yes they do a good job when they finally respond. But I have a ticket that was submitted 9 days ago (Oct 7) and has gone unanswered. That is unacceptable in my opinion.

Maybe its not answered because the concern staff/Dev (according to your question) are not available. It took time according to its complexity. my 2¢

if the marketplace expanded then the support team needs to grow. one week or more is not a great message to buyers.

We actually hired several and they’re been trained up as we speak :) The ticket times have already started to drop. Some of them, as mentioned by laranz, take a bit longer due to their complexity or if a specialized staff member needs to look into them.
