@Nico: the problem is not you or your items. The problem is simply too many items. And I’m not saying that because I think they’re all rubbish. I’m, saying that out of s purely selfish observation: if I were the only one selling here I’d make a fortune :)

But there are more and more authors and more and more items ( good and bad ) so you will make less and less sales. It’0s pure math.

I predicted 3 years or so ago that in 5 years time ( from then ) none of us ( the regulars at the time ) would be making any sales. The curve is deifinitely going in that direction now, 3 years later.

Also of that “us” there are very few left. Most good authors use GR as a springboard as they soon realise that your compensation never matches your effort.

You could however argue that GR can be quite a successful springboard to other more lucrative contracts – so in the end it may just work out :)

Cheers

This is a customer complaining to their credit card company that a purchase was fraudulent. The credit card company then reverses the charges and they are also automatically reversed from you.

Basically you’ve been robbed.

This is a common trick: buy something online with your credit card, then complain to your credit card company. Because of all the claims your credit card company will just refund you the money rather than going through lengthy settlement processes.

It’s just another form of piracy we have to live with. It happens from time to time too many of us.

Punch your desk. Suck it up. Go on creating :)

it’s a pain in the neck, but I wouldn’t get aggravated about it.

Cheers

make 100% sure it really is the correct size and backward compatibility.

If it is and you’re 100% sure, then re-upload it with the comment to the reviewer saying that you verified the sizes and that they are all okay. And asking that if anything is not okay he could tell you where exactly the fault lies.

Good luck

Chris

As long as it’s in the queue, and you see that on your Dashboard, you will be okay.

Sometimes it takes longer, sometimes it takes less long. I’ve waited 10 days and more. So at the moment nothing to be alarmed about.

I never worry about release dates. I just finish and release.

It used to matter more because we used to actually get some visibility on the front page, but these days I don’t see the point. Items sell over time, not because someone spots it on the frontpage the second you release it.

Aiming for featured file sounds good and is a noble target, but it’s also a bit like aiming to win the lottery :)

Hmmm, I could imagine many arguments for instant payout – but “boring” is definitely not one I would have thought off :)

Create more valuable and higher-priced items. You’re not going to make much money selling web banners and Facebook covers at $1 a pop. So look to create items that are more valuable.

Promote your items off-site. I found that the most sales I get from referrals from other websites outside graphic River.

Continue to produce high-quality content. Continue to produce lots of it.

Cheers

it’s all paranoia :)

Sales just go up and down in and predictable. I have more items than ever and less sales than ever.

Then I have a day with multiple sales, then I have multiple days without a sale which I haven’t had in years.

I think the only thing that is constant is that there will be a downwards spiral in sales. The more items get added to Graphic River, the less you will sell.

So it’s always a hustle: keep adding fresh new items to maintain the same volume of sales. If you want to increase you really have to add some killer items, or great quantity. Otherwise your volume will be constant at best, or spiralling downwards.

In other words: if you buy the regular license you can use the image for your preview. If you buy the extended licence you can include it in the flyer download.

okay, sorry If I strayed off topic and my answer.

Here is the more precise comment:

1) reviewers are human. They cannot possibly know all logos of the world. This will happen from time to time 2) . Two wrongs don’t make a right. Just because one slip through, doesn’t mean another then also needs to be allowed to slip through. 3) if this was approved three or four years ago it is likely that approval Guidelines may not have been as strict in this category, or that the logo was not as well known at the time

But the bottom line is, just because there are sloppy approvals which should not have gone through doesn’t mean that others should go through. If anything, the previous mistake should be corrected.

Cheers

Chris
