(Locked) Is ThemeForest taking 75% of every theme price... well... a bit much?

The majority of users don’t pass the $500 mark to make it into the 35% profit range. And the majority of those who do do not get past the required $2,499 to reach 36%.

Basically, I am suggestion they cut the profits at least 50/50. This will get more freelances to submit and more buyers to buy if there’s more to buy.

Anyone else have any thoughts?

The great part is that you can sell resources cross-website, so there’s even more opportunity to reach 50%!

I must agree, I thought this would be a good place to start selling Wordpress themes but then I read the 25% share and that’s just ridiculously low…

Hmmm, 75%. That has made me reconsider posting themes. I think 50% is too much but doable.

you can reach 50%.. I am at 36% right now. The idea is that you won’t stay forever at 25%.. :)
