Hey, I’ve got a suggestion for the envato marketplaces. Would you agree if there was an option for authors to set price discounts for their files, for example, once a month and these get announced in a specific page of the marketplace? Much like twitter updates…

There are a lot similar files between authors, so authors who might be more active in the marketplaces and set these discounts may earn more than they did before.

Let me know what you think :bigsmile:

It states in the rules that envato set the prices. This would probably not be integrated.

If you set a template at $3 you would probably get more sales but in the end make the same amount.

Yeah, well I am not talking about giving complete freedom to the authors for these discounts. An example would if the price of the file is set to $10 the max amount of discount could be 30%

It would be determined by the staff.

Also I am not talking about discount spam. It could happen only once a month for a X amount of files of an author etc.

I’d have to agree and I’m a buyer! I even wonder whether giving away a file on each marketplace every month is such a good idea.

The price of files, is at least 100% less than what you would pay for it in custom work, what more of a discount do you want for them?

Bad idea :)

Don’t get me wrong, I agree that the prices are low, I am an author afterall.

I just thought it would be better than the current prepaid customer discount price(-2$) since everyone will be getting more sales. It could be like monthly file features.

Another example is Steam which does these discounts for their games, and they seem to be working great.
