I totally agree about which items display when you purchase items; it can be annoying, at times.

Also, is it just me, or are the elements really oddly placed and out-of-line with each other? Looks like the front-end team may need to redo some of the CSS :grin:

I purchased an HTML template recently, I was offered the best WP plugins to enhance it…

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.
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.

sorry, did not catch the issue. off course Wordpress plugins don’t work with HTML templates so showing them after purchase have no logic.

In case you didn’t notice, almost everything that is done here lately has been mainly targeting ThemeForest. ThemeForest is the biggest source of income for Envato and – unfortunately – it is where the most of their energy goes. So I am not surprised with what you reported, Doru.

So the question that we should ask ourselves is: what are we authors here for? to sell our items? to be spectators and watch Envato grow? to watch other authors sell 25 million dollars?

There’s an old saying “If you don’t ask, you don’t get” so if we don’t ask for a better marketplace with more fair exposure – Envato will assume we’re happy and nothing really changes in our favour. If we’re here to our sell items, we should ask for a better platform – if we don’t ask, we don’t get! The louder the collective voice, the more Envato will listen.

Looks like at some point, Envato failed to execute some Plan A of making a proper search and arrange natural sales distribution.

Probably now the Plan B is in process: Put every effort to hike the growth of top sellers so that there will be no possibility of competitive individual shops from top ones.

As an author, this is just my observation. Could be wrong but it is inevitable to see this way these days.
