Why not have this as an option?

If you are not comfortable with this you can choose not to have this option for your item :)

Even simpler for you – This benefit does not justify the administrative cost of inserting it into the Envato Marketplace.

IE: It isn’t worth the time or effort to implement it, even as an option.

I wouldn’t use this license for myself since most of my themes would earn more over time. However, I can understand how it would be good on some of the other marketplaces. Especially areas like AudioJungle or GraphicRiver where there are so many files with only a few purchases.

I did recently have a customer ask if he could get a discount for purchasing multiple items from my portfolio. He wanted to buy 4 HTML templates and wondered if he would get a discount. It got me thinking, why not allow authors to create “Packages” with the prices being set by Envato. Possibly having a 3 pack of WordPress themes that you get 10% off?

Another thought was to give incentives similar to the lower price when using prepaid deposits. If a custom wanted to buy any 3 themes from the same author, they could get a 4th free. For me this would mean that if someone was thinking of buying 1 of my themes, I could make an extra sale (or two) which I’d be very happy to have. Turning a potential a $35 sale into a $105 sale and the customer saves 25% by not paying full price, $140, for all 4 themes.

It could be modified slightly to be a little more catchy, “Any 4 themes from 1 author for $99”, which is almost a 30% discount, but people might take the deal and the individual author becomes the one to benefit. Perhaps even allow buyers to come back within 5 days of a purchase and still get the deal, an “upgrade” of sorts. I know a lot of my customers come back to buy more of my products. This added marketing incentive might just encourage a few more.

- Just another thought… If the themes were $40 each, you could have something like “3 themes from 1 author for $99” and it would still be a great deal.

+1 for all those discount-related deals. These marketplaces are fully lacking such features. And no, the Envato Bundle is not a replacement for them.

The discounted package or bundle deals is an excellent idea, and should be implemented across all of Envato.

Exactly, GR and AJ are right marketplaces for unique licences. Not TF.
