If you’re hiding Authour Fee – can’t you deduct from the amount? Otherwise it’s not accurate to what we’re actually receiving.
Very good start! But I think adding horizontal scrollbars for new items, featured items is not a really good idea. It’s way better to just collapse all items vertically.
+1 My initial reaction, any change which hides items which were visible before could be bad for exposure – better to collapse items. Great start tho!
But from an authors perspective, since we are direct sellers, and this invoice is meant to be proof of a transaction between us and a buyer, how do we prove these invoices are legitimate and are addressed to real people if we get stuff like
The billing address can be bogus or partly filled in, but the real info such payment details, email address is not held by authors, therefore authors can’t actually prove the names on the invoices are real people, if we needed to, for example during a tax audit.
Indeed privacy is important for both… but right now what is appearing on invoices isn’t even enough to confirm identity in the real world, so as the thread title says “what is the point?” From an authors perspective if we ever had to show these invoices during a tax audit, they’d look very suspicious.
Gotcha. But not placing your full info, and the buyer having a choice, means the invoice could essentially be useless for tax record keeping surely.
I think with the details appearing on the invoices it would be hard to actually find / contact these buyers in the real world to prove identity so yeh not exactly legitimate for record keeping.
When I view my latest invoice I get the buyers name, address, city and state and also my full name, address, city and state plus zip. Surely that’s all the info?
I guess it depends how much the buyer entered.. I don’t see any house numbers or street names on mine.. just the city, state/province, country. Sometimes there is a company name, so I guess it would be easier to contact them with a search.
Well since we are direct sellers, I vote we have access to their username and a way to contact them. I don’t see this as a privacy concern for buyers, they bought our stuff directly, we should be able to contact them if we need to.
Also I don’t see any full addresses of buyers, only first initial, surname, city, province and country. (which isn’t really much to go on)
Anyways in reality our customers aren’t “our customers” (even though we are direct sellers).. they are Envato’s customers and this is why contact them is restricted, unless they contact us ofcourse.
