Hi all. I guess everyone thinks extended license sales is very low, often is ridiculous because in some cases the percentage should be higher, such as in the television pack. It is very naive to think that these products are used noncommercial.

Ok, I have an idea to promote the sale of these licenses. I like that there is the possibility that the authors can offer something extra for buying the extended license. For example you can write in the product description: “If you buy an extended license can make commercial use of the product and also get a gift a logo sting, more textures or more project presets”. Like a regular version of the project and another extended version. We may also use version names like silver or titanium version.

I understand that this would involve changes Videohive sales system, such as the ability to climb 2 zip files for the buyer to choose from. I guess it must be complicated but I think it’s a good idea to consider.

Another way to do this can be the following: in the description of each product the author could say that if you buy the extended version the buyer send an email from the profile page (to control the sale is true) and he gives some extras. I wonder if the authors have allowed to do this?

Anyway, it’s just an idea. Take this opportunity to salute all the great family of Videohive.

I usually does a free of cost basic customization, if customer buys extended, a few times when customer asked me about the charges before buying, i replied them with nominal fee for standard licenses, no fee for external licenses, but very few turned up.

Good idea mate! However if I understand well only pay tv need an extended license because end users are charged to watch it, and since pay tv have their motion graphics staff they are not buying much here, correct me if I’m wrong…

Another idea would be extended license = unlimited uses of the product, eg: you pay 10 times more then the standard licence but you can use the product more times.

I don’t want to think bad about other people, but I think that some are paying the standard licence once and using the same product more times…

Probably unlimited uses is too generous… but let’s say if you pay 50 instead of 10 you can use it 10 times… or something similar…

just another idea :)

Before the license changes, animations that are going to be broadcasted needed an extended license. Since the license changed, this point is gone. I think that’s a very bad decision. Seeing your work on a big broadcast TV channel and then say: hey I got 5 bucks for that just makes you feel damn supid.

I’m not sure if envato allows this. They may hope for more sales from people who would buy this license.

It´s true Creattive , but we should know how many times the same buyer purchases multiple licenses of the same product. This will be a recurrent?

I think its even possible to achieve without envato doing any changes. Simply write in the discription that if the buyer will buy the extended author will provide extra presets, logo, custom color control panel or something like that with that particular template vis Email . Just i,m not sure how to know wich one did get the extended license maybe after email you can see like normally see who did buy your project does there show up that this person got extended i don’t know.

Yes WilQ5,
an email sent from the profile page has information on whether someone buy the extended license or regular.
