BenChan saidYou guys don’t understand how much time you have to invest to create all those demos, yes the underlying code is kinda similar however each demo can take hours to create and when you’re talking a 100+ of those, c’mon. Noway that’s going to happen especially for a one man show like myself. So you’re gong to tell me this trend is just going to continue and when people are releasing themes with a 1000+ demos, every plugin imaginable it’ll be the same price as a niche theme, makes total sense. You don’t have to a MBA to understand, time is money.
- Although multipurpose themes offer more demos, their functionality, code, and structure are essentially the same as niche themes of a similar price.
Yep it takes time to create many demos and create designs / color palettes, also you have to source stock images for each one, and that costs time and money. But it’s not just about the demos,it’s also all the features, and all the plugins.. it’s all about how much value is in a multi-purpose theme compared to a simple niche theme.
One interesting bit from the $1 price increase is that the number of sales for the top item on the marketplace actually increased from last week.
This is to be expected, the higher priced items became a small percentage more favorable because lower end priced items had a bigger percentage increase.
So Envato – how does the $1 increase help the market?
What it really does is it makes low priced items more expensive. For example $10 + $1 = $11 (10% increase) $50 + $1 = $51 (2% increase)
The result is the opposite to what we’ve been asking.
Good tips for beginners!
hmm seems like there an additional variable somewhere
From the affliate page it clearly states how much we will receive, so not sure why we’re not getting whole numbers doing reverse calculation.. Envato?
When a new user clicks your referral link, signs up for an account and purchases an item (or deposits money) via any of the Envato Market sites, you will receive 30% of that person’s first cash deposit or purchase price. If they deposit $20 into their account, you get $6. If they buy a $200 item, you get $60.
Seems like they changed something because now if I divide by 0.3 I also don’t get whole amounts. Two deposits = $23.64 / 0.3 = $78.8
Can staff explain why the price change is in an increment of $1.. you’ve explained why price changes are necessary to the market and that you’ve looked at data, trends and ongoing community feedback, but what doesn’t make sense is increasing / decreasing by $1 across items in different price ranges – can you explain how this is a benefit to the market so we can understand the logic behind this? Thanks!
