Exactly, that doesn’t give an answer but raises other questions. As a pro with tax duties and laws to observe I need to know how my sales are managed.
Need to know if someone tells to Italy “LCweb” (that is just a name) sold X dollars, while I earned X * 70% dollars. If some Invoice with “LCweb” name is issued.When comes to taxation rules, EU is terribly messed and authors need to have explained the complete Envato process. If truly from Jan 1st things are changed, we should be informed immediately.
EU is super easy.
1. Authors get commision: We’re NOT the seller – it’s just impossible
2. You don’t collect VAT since Envato sels the prodcut and need to worrie about collecting VAT for theirselfs in their own country: Author’s get commision, no VAT: so you do NOT pay VAT.
Man this is so simple i don’t get why people keep asking and discussing this.
This is my last time putting any effort in this thread anyway cuzz is seems like people are 1. not professional and don’t have any kind of accountant person to guide them – 2. They have a bad accountant of 3. Are just seeing things way too complicated.
Good luck with it
9 days is nothing – it could take much longer. Be patient ( even though it’s hard ).
I’m glad it’s taking a bit longer nowadays – it means all the crappy themes don’t slip through like they used to.
my god, still going on haha
GUYS it’s SO super simple!
As long as we don’t have direct contact with the buyer of any legal, paper trail sort – meaning receiving VAT, getting ALL proper buyer info which is required ( EU from my point of view ): Author’s are simply NOT the seller.
The rules for your own country apply – As long as i don’t have that data, showing i sold an item to a particular person/business – i’m not the seller. – simple as that.
So – i’ll just wait and see what kind of info and invoices i’ll get from Envato in the future.
Can’t believe this discussion is still moving on.
I’ve checked with legals within the EU: When you don’t directly get from or send a invoice to your customer, and you don’t collect VAT: You don’t pay VAT and you’re not the seller. Author’s get a commission. As long as that is the case – plain and simple.
You guys make it way too complicated
The seller is Envato: they collect – they pay authors ‘commision’ – authors don’t have buyer invoices.
Allthough that might change with new VAT laws – but in the end authors are only the real sellers if they also get a direct invoice with buyer information. Simple as that.
Such an idea also popped up in my head a while ago – but like charlie said you could get some trouble.
And without mentioning real (user)names you’ll be just creating another clientsfromhell website.
Also i could perhaps backfire to the whole Envator community since there are still plenty of decent buyers over here. You don’t want to make good buyers afraid of asking the wrong questions by accident ( even though i know you mean the extreme cases which are very clear ).
Don’t bother is just the way to go for extreme rude support/feed requests.
You even can go a step further:http://codex.wordpress.org/Function_Reference/is_active_widget
This is still a wrong solution to your initial question ” How to register script ONLY IF widget is active”
This solution has nothing to do with that.
The solution you have is “How to load a script only when a certain page template is used”
