Since I’m an exclusiv author I’m not allowed of selling or give away one of my items outside the marketplace.

But if I give away an item before I release it here it should be ok.

Am I’m wrong?

Yup its okay, you can even sell it outside of Envato marketplaces, aslong as the item is not here :)

So the real question is if Envato will accept an exclusive item that has already been distributed elsewhere. I think it depends on the type of distribution, if you gave away a few copies to your friends or if you shared it on torrents, there is a big difference. Then there is the question if that distribution is still ongoing when you submit that item for review. There is too many nuances to find a clear answer around here – unless any sharing whatsoever is prohibited. So I think you need to ask support and explain your case in detail.

I’m no expert but I remember reading somewhere that you can’t post items that are from a tutorial/ free(share) ware to envato.

Yes but thats when its from someone else, you cannot publish items based on tutorials and lalala. But to take off all doubts ive requested staff reply on this thread.

Thanks for the comments!

I don’t like to share the plugin somewhere on a file sharing service or similar (would just be ridiculous) rather give some fellow beta tester, translators etc. a free pre-release copy.

And I will stop giving away them if the item has been released.

Edit: and the whole plugin is from myself without any tutorial teaching me that stuff

After giving it more thinking.. I don’t think having a free version initial release woud hurt anyone, on the contrary, if the product is a new and awesome item, it’s a successful promotion strategy for a premium bundle release later, packed with premium/exclusive features of course.

The exclusive author agreement only applies to item sold here, your item is not (yet). Once you will upload and remove from any other distribution channel, it will be exclusive and whoever got the pre-release version won’t be able to upgrade nor getting support unless he/she purchases from envato.
