I have been keeping an eye on sales on the wordpress themes, is it me or are sales slowing down quite quick?

Has the bubble burst already!

I know my wp real estate theme was the last WP theme to be approved for about a week now, maybe buyers are waiting for some new ones?

What do you mean by

“Has the bubble burst already!”

In my opinion themeforest is yet to become a popular place to look for wordpress themes.

Yeah I agree. If you search around the forums a little bit you will see that they are slowly becoming more strict and raising the bar on design quality. As the site shifts from quantity to quality, I think the site will become more and more popular. Just give it a little bit of time.

Yeah I’m seeing it too but its strange because didn’t they just give away $25,000, are people not buying templates with it, I think I’ve had 3 sales in the past 3 days, not what I call getting a cut of $25,000

@simnor – I believe those credits can also be used at the other envato sites. So although it was marketed for ThemeForest, it’s very possible that many people used it at FlashDen or another envato site.

I’m still pretty new to selling templates and websites online but could it be possible that because of the end of the year and the holiday season (at least in the US) that this is why sales are slowing? I would assume they will pick back up in January and steadily continue to increase. What do you guys/gals think?

Yeah the festive season could be playing a part i suppose, ho ho ho! :)

Well i will keep an eye and see how things pan out, i know i have only two templates at the moment but i don’t see the point in putting a couple of themes out at the present slow sales rate, so i will hold back and design some more.
