What will happen with low ratings coming from buyers not knowing that support doesn’t include customizations?
For this the support definition has been made clear http://themeforest.net/page/support_definition

Most buyers don’t know the license they buy. They don’t know they are allowed to use the Item in a single End Product, because they don’t click on the License details link, or simply don’t care. So it’s very unlikely the same people do click on What does support include?

The question still remains. Will we be able to contact Envato to get these unfair ratings removed?

Perhaps we could use something like this?

Then it’ll be crystal clear for buyers that support doesn’t include customizations. And there’s room for Envato to provide some escrow tool, and charge a fee for that service.

Just a thought.

Thanks, it does work for me. However, the price is not correct. It’s twice as the amount. I guess is because your commission rate is 50% ;)

You’re probably better off making a function and placing it in a class, so you can use it in all your projects.

class common {

    public static function starts_with($_string, $_start) {

        return substr($_string, 0, strlen($_start)) === $_start;

    }

    public static function ends_with($_string, $_end) {

        return strcmp(substr($_string, strlen($_string) - strlen($_end)), $_end) === 0;

    }

}

$test = common::starts_with($your_string, '99'); // true or false

...it will use a new name for its upcoming browser successor, codenamed Project Spartan…

Here begins another 10 or 15 years nightmare.

I think adding a couple of steps to force buyers to enter their addresses during checkout is not a good idea. I believe you should redirect them to do that when they open any marketplace page, so it won’t interfere with the checkout process.

No problem! Yes, you should save that date time in the db record too. The cron job run the script that checks if it’s time to submit or not.

You could do something like this:

  1. Save the form fields in a db table.
  2. Create a script to scan the db table. If “now” is older than “certain datetime” then send the form and remove the db record or set a flag to mark the record as sent.
  3. Create a cron job to run the above script every 10 or so minutes.

Good luck!

I think the middle man option is not bad. Here you see lots of good people trying to help you giving you ideas. Perhaps you should contact a few of these people (you might want to choose older members, I don’t know), send them like 500 USD or something to their PayPal/Payooner/Whatever and ask them to send that money back to you using Western Union/Money Gram. Just a thought.
