If for example I do got 200 sales, means I got 200 clients, and for example what I did before is PSD templates, and some of clients bought them, why can’t I contact them that I did HTML version, so they might buy it maybe… ? would be really useful

Or another things is for example I do have 60 sales of my one html template, I did new update again and it’s really good, why I can’t contact all my customers … to announce it?

Hi pixeful, I believe the main reason is to protect buyer’s privacy. It is believed that authors can/will abuse such system in order to “spam” buyers.

At the moment, authors do have their own workaround, varying from sending out newsletters, updating their item profile, item thumbnail (seen in the Downloads page), to announcing it through social media networks and personal websites.

Of course, things can change in the future, alternatives can be implemented, but for now, this is how it works. Either way, your feedback is always appreciated. Keep it up.
