Chill.

If you’re an Elite Author you’re on a roll from the start, these guys have built up a large group of followers so their sales will always go with a bang from the off.

For us other folk ;) it can take a while for sales to kick off, and dont worry about disappearing off the homepage, most buyers use the search functions anyway.

Also it can be the time in the week. From my experience Monday, Tuesday can be great for sales, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday not so great, Saturday, Sunday…forget it!!! ;)

Also when your theme starts propagating on the many WordPress Theme review galleries, then you can also see the sales start to build.

Hope that puts your mind at ease a little.

Just calm :).. Your theme looks nice, but it is your first, so people haven’t heared about you yet. I’m sure it will be better with time. Good luck :)

I doubt that this is the cause. You just have to keep on trying. Some themes sell some don’t its simple as that.

Don’t worry dude! My Wedding theme HTML had 1 or 2 sales when it was on the homepage. AFTER it was gone from the homepage I had 5 sales in a single day and after that the sales rythm maintaned steady. It’s like the buyers didn’t like my item being so “out there” (on the homepage) :D This homepage thing isn’t all it’s cracked up to be

I supposed that you have to be patient, and try to create buzz in social networks or another content source.

Have you thought in work a responsive feature?
