Terrible idea, have a look on elancer if you want to see how much people are willing to undercut each other, we don’t want that here now do we :)

If you limit let say 5$+- I think it would be ok. Of Course you can’t allow theme price lower then xx $.

But sure it is better idea only one day with all prices down (Black friday).

Why? We already have 5+ bundles a year… in fact, didn’t one just end this week?
Did you read my question? Bundles are different, only a few benefit from it. A massive sale on all items on Themeforest on black friday and cyber monday would be a great benefit for all authors.

Author price changes, nonono, easiest way to kill the marketplace. Won’t ever happen tho thankfully ;)

Discounts instead of bundles.. I think the idea has merit, but there are two possible drawbacks I could see.

1)Envato takes a large cut of every sale across the market, cutting prices by 25% or more across the board would be a fair amount of revenue for them if the sales didn’t rise enough. Not saying it wouldn’t pay off (I think it would) but Envato would be risking a significant amount so might not be keen to jump into something like this.

2)If decreases became commonplace (say 4 or 5 per year) some buyers might hold of buying until the price decrease.. no idea how many might do this, but worth consideration.

There should be events like Black Friday on TF, so author can agree to be part of it and his theme are 30% cheeper for lets say 48h.
