I am not going to bat an eye lid over a few dollars, prior warning would have been nice but I don’t buy on price (I buy on the needs) so this increase doesn’t bother me one bit.

Fair and honest attitude Gareth! Most of the items are worth many more times than the current price.

There’s quite a difference between lets say ThemeForest and VideoHive/AudioJungle. TF items will mostly still be a bargain, since the buyer can resell them for 10-100x and I don’t see how this increase would make clients leave Envato, whereas in the other sections 16-20% could be the dealbraker.

Also to me, it feels like prices have risen dramatically when I see numbers like 43, 48, 58, those 40, 45, 55 looked far more friendly before and we were used to them Some might overreact due to no previous warning about 3$ price increase… or thats just how I see it.

The only problem I see, is that there are no $20 files anymore, but $21. You can only deposit in increments of $20.

So now you have to deposit $19 you maybe do not want to deposit, or pay $2 surcharge.

Definitely not optimal.

That was always the case. I had one item that was $20, not $22. And I had items that were $18, now $20. From buyers perspective it is better to have rounded prices considering the values of deposit, but that that is not going to happen, there will always be items with different prices as it is now.

oh okay. at videohive, we very rarely had prices like $18. From $15 upwards, it has always been in $5 increments. So, 15, 20, 25, 30 etc. That did go well with the deposits, I’d say.

But if you tell me that on Codecanyon there are many items now priced at even $20, then this contradicts my concerns.

edit/ well you don’t seem to have any guidelines on prices on Codecanyon, whew :D

No guidelines as far as I know, since I have items priced from $5.00 to $22.00 and I have almost every number in between as the price.

Thanks King Dog for deleting my replies! I live half of my life in a communist regime. You certainly don’t know what means communist regime. What can I told you is you are so similar with communism restrictions,

This forum has its own rules and we must respect them. This makes it a community, not at all a communist environment.
