Anyone else having buyers report having issues with their purchase codes not being validated through the Envato API just recently? I’ve had several buyers over the past few days report this, has something changed?
Checkout my portfolio I just released an automotive WP theme.
This has been a requirement and best practice for some time now. Using the TGM Plugin Activation library makes it cake for users to install and activate the required plugins.http://tgmpluginactivation.com/
Use it in all my themes never had a buyer have an issue with it, pretty sure its the standard for all authors.
Got my day spa & salon theme in the queue today.
Design aesthetics has a lot to do with the price as well, a mediocre theme with a billion options wont guarantee you a higher price from what I understand.
Talk about bringing a thread back from the dead, this is from 6 years ago lol
Sent out tweets to a few prominent bloggers in the WordPress community, so we can hopefully get some backing on this.
Its really pretty easy to sum this up if Envato doesn’t raise the price on these do it all, 50+ demos, “swiss army knife” themes I’m basically going to go out of business. That’s a scary thought when I rely on the marketplaces for my full time income.
They should definitely be at least a $100 or more, why would any buyer purchase a singular style theme when they can get a monster with $200 of value added plugins for 3 bucks more?
Something needs to be done, and not like in six months it needs to be now.
