Well I think we can all see that what sells the best here is “best value for money”.. it could be a bundle, it could be a multi-purpose theme, it could be 150 page PSD – they all have something in common, they’re better competitively priced – and if left unchecked can exponentially climb very high. But where there is an increase, there is a decrease. What we really need is more balance with the pricing, it doesn’t have to be a huge adjustment – just looking at what is selling really well, how much value is in the item and adjusting the price accordingly so it’s fairly priced to competitors.

If we don’t do this, we’re just heading for more and more bloat ware items – which at some point is not going to be worth the time to create and higher risk to sell.

I understand the way it works now has helped Envato expand rapidly, but now Envato is the best digital marketplace out there, so there is no where else to go but to fine tune what we already have so it’s going to be sustainable and a better place to sell our items.

How it Helps Bundles to Author ? – they will share $$ to author ?

Authors with items included will get their shares in the total revenue.

Totally agree.

I’m not sure if the bundle hurts sales on WordPress themes, at least my sales are pretty high and constant – didn’t notice any drops since the bundle, on the contrary sales are unexpectedly high and stable.

Bundles (at least for ThemeForest) are pretty useless because they don’t contain updates or support for those specific items. And someone who wants these (pretty important) will always get a specific theme with support & updates.
