I have noticed that a recently accepted psd was priced $13 when the best selling psds are just $12.
I am not trying to make a fight with anyone. I just want to know why.
The reviewers place a price on an item based on what it offers/features.
They have no way of knowing what’s going to be a better seller, I’m guessing.
So the items with more than 100psds offer less features compared with items of 12 psds?
that doesn’t sound right @themetoast
Quantity != Quality
You can cram up 10 features in different orders in 100 PSD’s, or deliver the same 10 features in 1 or 2 PSD’s with the best possible arrangement, offering a good visual guideline and a starting point. First option won’t be better by default. It would only be a “marketing gimmick” to display versatility to less-savvy potential customers, and that doesn’t really need to add to the price.
In a lot of cases, “best-selling” on TF means “how many features”, not necessarily the quality of execution or the sense they make in a project. Unlike customers’ choice, the pricing also accounts for things like file organization, design cohesion and so on, some of them being “features” that customers have access to only after they’ve downloaded the PSD file, yet the reviewers get to see them first hand and apply the pricing based on all these factors.
PS: Also, for God’s sake, it’s $13 versus $12, not $24 vs. $12. It’s ONE DOLLAR, no need to panic about it.
Just like other authors i too very well am aware that the quality is not equal to the quantity.
well and it is not about the 1usd, but it is about how tf values our items.
then tell me one thing that there are so many other single page psds which are really creative than the 13usd items..and why they aren’t priced 13 or above?
quality, complexity, potential demand (selling potential)http://support.envato.com/index.php?/Knowledgebase/Article/View/384/57/general-pricing-information
As I can see that PSD you are talking about has custom made icons and really unique layout – purpose also, somethng that hasn’t been seen so far. I think it deserves this price, but it’s true that there are a lot of other items that deserves it too.
Well that’s what i am talking about. If that particular item costs 13, there are other items which deserves the same price.
again: this isn’t a fight about that item..i like it a lot personally
“there are other items which deserves the same price”
See, that right there is a completely subjective statement. Each person puts their own value on creativity and creativity means a lot of different things to a lot of different people.
The reviewer might not have the same opinion with you, and there’s not creativity check list that you can review or price an item after. You can price it objectively on technical terms, but the reviewer will also have their own subjective influence on the template’s pricing / approval etc.
I myself believe there are quite a bunch of $35 themes that deserve more, maybe even $55 despite not having e-commerce features or whatever else? Why? Because the creativity level on those $35 theme surpasses the one found on many $55 theme, in MY own personal opinion. But I’m not the one pricing items. Just like me, a reviewer will have their own opinion to fit into the pricing, aside from simple technical features.
