Where I live its pretty standard everywhere. When you get a regular job, they hold a paycheck. So your pay is always offset. Instead of looking at it like you are getting paid 15 days later. Look at your November 15th payment, as your money for December. Then look at December 15th’s payment as your money for January. It’s all about perception here. And viewing it this way will appear like you are getting paid 15 days before the beginning of the next month. :)

I really don’t get why everyone makes a big deal out of the payment day. It is pretty standard as far as stock sites go.


These stupid threads make me grumpy.

The answer is very simple: Envato needs time to gain money for paying us. It’s not hard to imagine that the company is spending money for bills, researches, developments, paying the staff, etc. Likely, they are also investing the rest somewhere.

They don’t know how much money the authors will request next month. Imagine a situation where all the authors from every marketplace would accumulate their money for a year and then request payout at the end of the same month. This would make the system collapse without this 15 day period.

Getting a lot of money from a day to another isn’t a simple task. So, this is why you won’t get your money right after your request.
