Just reverse the price increase and raise the standards then the amount of sales will get up and the the amount of new items will be reduced.

We would love to have our themes at 35$, no problem with that and never had. Only when buddypress, commerce functions are added then an increase.

Mojothemes will definitely benefit from the price increase on themeforest, that’s for sure.

I am not sure, but wasn’t this idea of price increase “spammed” by authors on forums?

I would say increase the standards. Since the price has increased, the quality of items should at least remain if there’s no increase. However, from what I observed in the past week, the overall quality of approved items has dropped.

@wptitans – Sometime back you posted some sales stats of your items where (at that time) you were doing ~ $400 per day. With the increase in price and influx of new themes has this changed by any magnitude?

I know for most top authors the net effect of the drop in sales and increase prices isn’t really felt much. Would like to know though.

Yes, the daily sales amount have dropped along with the amount of sales.

We asked for that but we did mot ask for amateur themes to spam the market.

Excuse me for being blunt, but I would like to know by which criteria are you measuring “amateur”?

Stuff not working. Spacing not good. Fonts blurry. General things that you would expect to be properly taken care of. Even design. Some designs are just dated.

As I once stated on similar threads, if that was the case then envato should remove some best selling templates just on the note that they are outdated, but they are still best selling. And even if you were/are right there isnt a lot those kind of “bad” templates per day approved and do not effect the exposure time, so it wouldn’t be a solution.

Still, when there are so many new submissions per day, items with higher standards should be chosen instead of approving everything which is ‘acceptable’. Some of the best selling items are indeed outdated because they were released long time ago, but I don’t see how new items should have the ‘outdated’ look. It’s not like having a dated design will help to boost an item’s sales.
