This is becoming really popular on Themeforest these days. Buyers are using this trick to buy free templates. It happened with me three times :(

Step 1. Buy the template you need from the Envato market.

Step 2. Contact Envato support and tell them that you buy the template by mistake. You misunderstood that it is a WordPress Theme.

Step 3. Envato Support will reverse the sale for you.

Your template is free for you. Enjoy!

I am sharing this trick with all the authors to find a solution for this problem :)

First off all. it’s probably a bad idea to try and share ideas on how to try and get items for free on the forums :) Secondly, Support does not automatically provide a refund, particularrily if the item was downloaded. Please see our Knowledgebase for more information. Thanks!
