Good idea Tim. Although I will add that I suggest that they remove the exclusivity all together. Never liked it. [Insert rage here]

Jesus Christ NO WAY , lol

Good idea but things will be a lot more complicated if there should be ‘Exclusivity Choice Per Item’.

Check this out: Let say that one of my instrumentals is exclusively sold here and after 3 months I decided to change it to non-exclusive in order to also sell it someplace else. And after another 3 months, I will switch it back to exclusive. Trust me, many authors will keep their items exclusive here but also sell it someplace else and with the amount of new authors coming in every day it will be certainly DIFFICULT to track down items that are exclusive here but also available on competitor sites.

Your idea is good but many will take advantage of it in a wrong way.

It would be better to select the exclusivity option only once before it goes live on author’s portfolio but if the ‘exclusive and non-exclusive free switch’ is available many will abuse/exploit it.

Btw, it would be great after that to have a possibility to integrate already existing differents accounts by one author:)

I know there is huge back-log of marketplace suggestions – however I don’t think that should stop us from continuing to give them, so here I go!

+1 for both continuing improvement suggestions and also all that item exclusivity stuff :)

This can be solved in another way. Choise the “Exclusivity” when you upload an item and once it’s approved this option must be disabled automaticaly. So, you can choose the “Exclusivity” for a specfic item only one time. ;)
