Hi all, I’m a happy seller in CodeCanyon but I just wanted to know if someone has some suggestion to incite users to rate the items they buy.

I think my items get too few rates and I can’t understand why (even if my scripts are > 4).

My proposal Maybe it would be great if Envato could send memo/private messages/e-mail to users that have not yet rated the items they bought, as many mobile apps already do. I can’t insert any kind of alert in my items and I think many other developers too, so I think this proposal would be really appreciated. What do you think?

We’ve just started doing email reminders actually :) In some cases we may need to do some further tweaking (making sure we don’t overload inboxes etc.), but we’re trying it out.

Crazy Idea here:

How about a Global Marketplace Promotion:

“EARN .05 CENTS MARKETPLACE CREDITS, EVERYTIME YOU RATE A PURCHASED ITEM”

Twist, make it only applicable if link is clicked in the Purchase email ??

“Rate this item and receive a .5cents credit in the Marketplaces”

Can’t speak specifically to the marketplaces here, but out of experience just ask. Can ask your customers to rate your products if they like your service in the documentation, on the item page itself, through social media, etc. Never ask for a 5 star rating though!

That’s fine, but some users know what they’re doing.

They just want to get their job completed.

Maybe they never rate.

Regardless.

Yeah. Five email reminders for one item, in one day, is a touch excessive!
