We do not even get VAT refund we just get vat compensation.
Yes and the point of niche themes is that yes sales can be high for a while but eventually it goes down, due to competition over saturation etc.
The mane problem is that a yea a go you could predict your sales pattern now days you cannot and a business without revenue prediction cannot plan and if you cannot plan… well you just stop eventually.
The fluctuations are just to high.
Actually both prices have to be listed and vat price and vat %....
Under the price it is stated the price excludes vat, however it is rather small and unnoticeable.
And yes the sales are quite erratic, first 2 weeks of this month were great, this week from Tuesday it started to decline.
This debate is an old one, envato refused it many times and they are not even discussing about it as I know. Keep in mind price policy of envato is price dumping this is why they are nb. 1. It is all about supply and demand.
I agree bloated themes should be at least double the price and i have stated numerous times that it would not affect income, since sales would go 50% down but with a higher price the income would be the same, with less work on support they even gain.
Overall stats are unknown to us, if envato is still growing (there profits) then nothing will change, when or if it starts to level out or fall then things will start moving, but usually then is to late.
But again, nothing will change in this question.
i tried to contact envato support all I got is that google analytics is not reliable and that on there side every thing is ok.
What is happening, i am getting quite a lot order confirmation hits in google analytics, usually this indicates a sale, but for quite some time we got quite a few order confirmations which do not get a sale even tried those purchase keys and are not valid.
Any one else experience this? It is quite disturbing and I am getting up to 10 per day, depends on the day.
I am sure it is a bug of some kind but non the less it is disturbing, since google analytics is our, we can say, only tool to show stats.
For us sales improved in this month, however I cannot stop to tremble coz of the ups and downs.
I would really like to see some overall envato stats of sales. from 2012 to 2015
Until now I had just one job cancellation and that was because I could not install the theme due to hosting issues of the client and even that was my good will.
