Can someone explain something here, if an author is from the EU and the buyer is an EU non-business buyer, then there will be additional amount added to the list price? Won’t this make purchasing from EU authors less attractive, since those buyers could rather purchase a similar item from another author in a non-EU country and pay less?
Higher prices will apply only to non-business EU buyers, no matter who they buy from, therefore all envato items will be pricier for them. The only solution is to move outside EU (or state in your account that you are not from EU which might not end well if they find out).
Price = Price of your project minus Buyer’s fee (20%)
I’m not worried about past VAT. Envato was and right now still is a direct seller. Everything says it, money flow, the fact we don’t know who buys our projects, no invoices with author’s details, basically everything except their ToS…
But as things change, I’m getting worried about VAT in the future. If Envato puts our details into invoice, we might be named as suppliers and envato as just intermediary – then, in that moment, we are direct sellers and we already have to be VAT registered (at least this is how it works in my country). But again, Envato wants to pay VAT for us, making things even more complicated.
Right now I need to find 2 answers:
- who we represent on those invoices and if we are supposed to be suppliers, where is stated they have permission to sell in our name
- if I need to be VAT registered when I’m direct seller but Envato pays VAT for me
Guys, it has been said that the VAT will differ for every buyer, because it will depend on buyer’s country. For me it is meaningful, that EU flag is gone. You can’t look at all those countries as to one whole piece, not from 2015.
So far I’m not worried about the VAT situation, I believe in Envato, they will handle this. I’m worried about how many buyers are we going to lose, since they will be required to specify some personal info + projects will be pricey for them. I truly hope we won’t lose any buyer outside the EU.
Looks like I didn’t pay a visit to audiojungle for a while. Thank you!
I know this topic has been discussed few times and there are answers on the forums somewhere. I just need to be sure about this once and for all. If VH author purchases extended license of audiojungle music, can he/she include it within the project file?
If the answer is yes, then I’m sure there are authors doing it and this is the second question for them: When do you include music? On first upload, or you wait until the project is approved?
Am I the only one around here who uses bit.ly heavily on Envato Marketplaces? So far it has been great tool for statistics + hiding referrals.Let’s hope they’ll fix this soon
It’s more costly because it already comes with video transmission + gimbal + display, etc…while mine is just a “copter” so far.
LubosVolovar be careful with that remote control, don’t fly too far, I’ve seen many swapping their radios for better ones (on Dji Phantom 1/2) (or at least make sure you have RTL Failsafe when radio signal is lost)
