Envato is a business and as such it will not price some of the products so they will not sell, neither will they stop this practice.
Small pricing adjustments are needed based on value of content, that is all, and will not adversely affect sales. Yes Envato is a business, but it’s also a creative and author focused community, so there needs to be some balance between profit and what is creatively healthy for the marketplace to create a sustainable ecosystem.
The trend exists because the pricing system allows for it to be profitable. Authors follow what sells, so Envato needs to reevaluate what is selling to see if there needs to be any adjustments to create a more competitive environment.
I was needing invoices too, for record keeping purposes and useful for showing proof of income. Would make sense if this was accessible through the author dashboard.
Great story, Montreal looks like a nice place to live too, congrats Adrien!
Awesome, only noticed now there’s a link under the search bar too, great!
Finally! Great for new item discovery
I don’t think we need an answer from Envato, as many have posted evidence of how the law explains VAT for marketplaces and that for Envato’s model it’s clear they are the sellers. If there are any issues down the line for authors with authorities, we’d be covered in my opinion – which is why I think so many of the big earners here are relatively quiet on the matter, as they’ve already consulted their advisers and feel confident with their position.
