...... they have not submited an item since three or four months. Keep hard working…. .....I totally disagree with these autors. Sales are the same but if you don’t work, they will go to other autors. It’s just my opinion
Hmmm, interesting concept , work harder to get more sales, for each of the authors here there is a different relation between the amount of work they are willing to do versus potential earnings. This is because we are living in different parts of the world, one could have very different needs and also different opportunities.
In spite the fact I’ve been working really hard for different companies the past ten years, I could say for sure that working hard will never bring you “real” money .
In spite of all DDOS attacks, this month seems to be better than last month, however, at the end of the day, regarding WP, even if WP market share will increase (I believe it’s about 24% right now), you as an author will make less & less because of the competition (which will not necessary have better products than yours ). If you see this as a curve, I believe it reached it’s maximum about a year ago.
Lately it’s a lottery around here, sales are fluctuating massively, u can’t predict anything, markets are online or down (depending what DDOS attack they get), nobody from the stuff says anything regarding this summer low sales… I would be curious to find out how many new items are being uploaded now vs a few months ago. Overall I have a bad feeling about this and WP ecosystem overall, and frankly I don’t care anymore.
webfector said@webfector I think the above problems could be fixed, if a person installs to another domain it will activate it for the current domain and will become nonfunctional for the old domain. Regarding development you can always allow localhost as origin.
... - What if this person installs at another location in order to replace the previous installation?
- What if this person installs a second copy of the app for development and testing purposes, while the first is for production? ...
Anyway it seems to complicated, however I do believe the number of illegal copies is about 10X than the actual sales .
I was just wondering if one would be allowed to restrict a plugin’s functionality based on Purchase Code. What I mean is: you (as an author) would build a service that would make sure a plugin with the same Purchase Code can only run on a single domain?
Well, , this is not necessary a good thing, at least for authors at the moment and for buyers on the long run.
Currently going through the worse sales in 7 years for me. Last week I had a single day that was one of the best in years and years, since then I’ve had periods over 24 hrs without a single sale and that has never happened. Currently almost 20 hrs since the last sale. I have no idea what is happening.
Such a drop could not happen all of the sudden. there must be a valid reason/cause for it. I do not believe that is the summer since it never happened before.
It would be curious to find out how many of you have opted in for Support. I have this feeling that Envato started to favor supported items within search (I did not opt in for support). Such a drop it looks pretty strange for me. Cheers!
