why there are not shown other items from the author I’ve purchase the file?

even if you don’t want to show items from the author because you have something against him/us and you don’t want to promote our items more than necessary, why don’t you show items from graphic river THE SAME category I purchased my item?

even if you don’t want to show item from the same category as the item I’ve just purchased, why not showing a collection of items from all graphicriver?

why show avada? why themeforest? why not videohive?

really disappointed about this. :(

This was discussed recently, and yet (big surprise) nothing is done by Envato about it. Considering that this is how it works for years, I don’t expect they do anything about it anytime soon.

I had discussions with some of my buyers, and all of them say that they get ThemeForest recommendations.

After purchase page should show first of all items in the same markeplace, some items should be from the author of purchased items, and the rest should be in the same category. If a buyer buys WordPress plugin from me, buyer recommendation should show one or two of my plugins and few more WordPress plugins. Showing them ThemeForest themes is really bad practice and unfair promotion of that marketplace.

Doru, I’m very disappointed with this stance you’ve taken. Theme Forest is in desperate need of all the help it can get. With that in mind, I’m about to launch a charity called Save the Children of the Forest. We’re at a crucial point in history here, we must act now to avoid a humanitarian disaster. Please donate today, just one purchase of Avada will save 3 forest children. On Graphic River we happily live in our golden palace of dreams, but we must do what we can to help the less fortunate. Thank you please.

On topic: I agree, better targeted items should be shown.

this make sense. To offer similar items that can complete the one buyer just purchased. This way maybe he will purchase something else that he didn’t know it exist.

Forgot to mention that you get a mail with other items from the author you’ve purchased.

We are highly disappointed about your stance Mr.Doru

Your mission against ThemeForest is a crime against Themanity.

I agree this sort of internal advertising is counter-productive. A few years ago this type of promotion was not allowed.. buyers decided who was number one for the week on a more fair playing field. But if every sale on GraphicRiver promotes top 5 themes on ThemeForest – that gives those authors a huge advantage considering how many sales a week there are on GR, this is partly why the top row of 5 items has hardly moved position in the last year or so.

If I was an author on the popular page of TF, I would be concerned since it’s highly unlikely to become top theme of the week when your competitors have so much internal advertising.

Not really, I know that WP plugins won’t work with HTML templates but quite a few users don’t make the difference. That can be misleading, I agree that it’s in the same family of products so it somehow makes sense but it’s still out of topic. It’s like promoting Joomla modules after purchasing a WP theme.
