Don’t know if we’re “allowed” to discuss earnings, but I’m just curious how people are doing so far this September in terms of sales/referrals. I think just knowing what is possible would be great motivation for those that haven’t sold much yet (or anything).

PS – I’ll wait to hear from a moderator if I can post my earnings or not :)

I’m going to take a guess that there are no rules on posting earnings, since you could easily see how much people have earned by adding their sales together.

I’ve had 49 sales, earning $1,615 – of which I’ve made $524.50 :)

As for referrals, I’ve had 255 clickthroughs & 5 registered members. Unfortunately none of those had deposited any money.

I’ve had just over $1000 worth of sales and my cut is about $315, so not bad. Similarly to Dan I’ve had 4 Registered Members but non have added cash to their accounts. I’ve earnt more though on tweaks to templates than actual sales though, so in September I’ve made maybe about $700 – $800 from ThemeForest, and very glad I got in on the action early.

I’ve had 52 sales since submitting my first template nearly 3 weeks ago and have made $610, of which I take $152.50.

I haven’t gone exclusive though because I run my own template site and don’t think I’d find the time to design templates exclusively for ThemeForest as well as for my other website whilst working fulltime! :( such a shame.

Who knows, maybe one day ThemeForest will bring in enough cash for me to go freelance fulltime and then I could just work on templates all day lol

It’s fine to post your earnings. People can figure it out either way. Keep at it though, we have some mammoth promotions coming up that will really give a boost to the site. It’ll be exciting to see how much you guys are bringing in this next year.

Okay, cool. ;)

I’ve made over $1,500 (I take $500) so far, from 87 sales and 3 referral deposits. I just can’t believe how well the month has gone and I can’t wait to get more templates up. I can’t imagine the sales figures when I have 20+ decent templates on here. It’s so motivating!

Awesome, keep up all the great work everyone.

Only $60 ($240.00 worth of sales) for me so far. But my second theme was only approved today so thats ok.

But when I look at the long term… i’m sure the hard work will be worth it.

My $12 theme “Gaius” sold 10 copies (total of $120), earning me $30. I’ve been pretty busy, so my second theme has been delayed, but I’ll get it up soon :)

I’ve made $0 from 0 sales of 0 themes ;)

But I’m working on some biggies if I can only grab the time to give them the focus they deserve.
