The change is so drastic and enough elite authors have responded experiencing the same thing that I have to bump this again.

I’ve noticed the same here, but think it has more to do with the updates to the checkout process. Buyers aren’t taken directly to their downloads page anymore…

This is why. It used to be that when you bought you were taken directly to the downloads page where you can see all your purchases, download any of them, and rate items all in the same place. Now when you buy there is an immediate download link given, resulting in not many buyers advancing to the downloads page, hence less ratings. Although as mentioned, there’s not as many out of the blue 1 or 2 star ratings like before, which is nice. I noticed this a while back when purchasing on photodune, seems to me to be the cause.

You guys seem to be right. It also seems like it would be an easy fix by giving the chance to rate at that download link, right?

Maybe there should be a special like:

$1.00 Envato Marketplace Credit for every Review/Rating given.

For a few weeks I came up with an similar idea. Why Envato do ignore the solution proposals of their authors???!!! There are so good ideas out there to improve the workflow of the rating system or to make it more interesting for the buyer. It is so frustrating that not only one Staff member will reply to this thread.

By the way…I have 70 sales and only 3 ratings.

Cheers

I can confirm as well – ratings are really hard to come by these days.

+1 Plenty of elite authors speaking up! They have enough data to really tell a difference. Thanks for speaking up! With all the changes happening around the marketplace (errr… I mean Market), I’m pretty positive something will probably be addressed about this soon. We’ll see! :bigsmile:
