I don’t believe these prices should be increased because many times the files come with 9 icons and I only really need 1… if the price was any higher then $5 I would just create my own icon and move on.
I actually agree with this, it’s kinda what I’m trying to say with the decorative type elements, I’m only wanting to use the one small element, paying over $30 to do so (because there maybe several in the pack) is a little high. Maybe those vectors could be split into their own individual items cough new vector marketplace
xstortionist saidAs I said earlier.. If you are only going to pay $2 to me, I’d rather you don’t buy it at all.. If the pricing is an issue, you should definitely create them yourself! You are actually not doing me a favor by buying it for $2-3, but rather killing my business..
I agree and disagree with some of your points here. I believe that there are many vector items that are under priced, but that’s exactly why I purchased them in the first placeFor example, there are many vector style icons on the site for $2 – $3 dollars that I purchase. I don’t believe these prices should be increased because many times the files come with 9 icons and I only really need 1… if the price was any higher then $5 I would just create my own icon and move on.
I have them available on some other sites for $30.. I’d rather sell it on that agency where I get %50 of $30, than %33 of $2.. That’s just silly.. That is the reason only %15 of my portfolio is here.. and as things stand I am not happy to keep that %15 here as well.. The only reason I just don’t withdraw my vectors is the effort I spent uploading here, and this is the site with the worst upload procedure out of 18 sites that I am submitting.. So imagine the effort!
Also: You are actually not doing “you” a favor too, because if the prices were fairer, you would have more vectors offered here.. I am not asking for $30, but it should start from $9 and go upwards.. Trust me there aren’t many people who can just create them themselves.. I am pretty sure I will still sell like hot cakes because that is what I do in those $30 agencies as well.. My experience proves my point.. My vectors are just given away here..xstortionist saidI am planing to actually withdraw all my vectors if the price is not increased significantly.. Yes, turning some of them into logos has been in my mind for a while now, but I need time to do that.. I will definitely stop giving them away for peanuts if I don’t like the new pricing though..
Edit: I just looked at your portfolio and I actually purchased your zodiac signs vector… but I only needed the bull one. Perhaps you should think about taking some of your vector packs and turning them into logos, that way you could have a bit more extra cash flow. This is just a suggestion of course!
I can appreciate your honesty regarding the pricing structure. Unfortunately, the pricing structuring is always going to be very subjective topic for every author. I tend to see more pricing issues on ThemeForest then any other marketplace.
Have you contacted support to see if they are able to increase the prices on some of your items? Perhaps you could split your items up into multiple files, that way the price is more justified to your liking. For example: I would have spent the money on the bull zodiac sign if it was an individual file.
You have really great artwork in your portfolio and we’d hate to see you leave the marketplace because you feel undervalued.
cidepix saidI dont want to disillusioning you, but have you ever played with that idea what would happened with your sales if your 4 jigsaw illustration appears here as a logo? This is just a simple math, nothing else. 101X4=404. How many times you need to sell this illustration as a logo? Around 14 times, is this correct? Yes it is. But in the reality i dont see a ghost of chance for it.

This thread is dead?
It is a good idea, the survey might be better.
Thanks all who contributed to this survey!

You are most welcome ShaneFreer, but you don’t think so Envato also should have to do a survey like this before he radically make cut back on the pricing regarding the Actions and a Layer styles? This Vector market suffering of lack of interest, because those people who could really upload a mass of quality work they don’t want to do this for $2. And now, Envato actually doing the same thing in the Add-on section.
