Hi Stephen – thanks so much for following up on this and getting the update in. I look forward to hearing back what you find out about the notification of updates if possible.
Again thank you.
Thanks for jumping in Stephen, I appreciate it!
Another thing to mention, as none of this is automatic (and probably should not be), is getting notification to authors on their dashboard that new updated ‘compatible with’ is available. It would help an enormously. Often when it does change nobody knows Therefore one of those nice author dashboard things Envato likes to popup to let us know badges are updated would be extremely helpful – something like:
We just updated the ‘Compatible With’ section of items with the following:
WooCommerce 2.2.x EDD 2.X
That way authors get notification and can act on the information and update to ensure their products (if compatible) are displayed with the correct info.
Quick question for Collis please. What about US based affiliates? Will they not have to submit their information also?
organicbee saidThanks for the link, Organicbee, really appreciate it. However this matter has been on my sight since the day I’m in the US and I’m quite familiar with the taxation law statements provided in the link. Still, I don’t fall under any category here as I don’t have a U.S. source income so question remains open.
Collis, could you please answer the following question – I live in the United states but I’m not a citizen or resident nor I fall under any point on W-9 form list so I’m not legally required to acquire a taxpayer ID (although I still can do it voluntarily). Now, would you force me to acquire taxpayer ID or would I have any other problems as such when requesting my payments by the end of the month? Thanks.
2. A nonresident alien individual who is not engaged in a trade or business in the United States and has U.S. income on which the tax liability was not satisfied by the withholding of tax at the source.
I believe as Envato do not hold the taxes and pay them on your behalf you are still liable – best for you to contact a tax professional really but that’s what it seems like to me.
I will not be jailed for tax evasion merely because I’m illiterate in that area and nobody ever taught me how to handle it.
Just a word of advise re that statement,
ignorance and not understanding never has, or never will be, a line of defense for not paying taxes – that’s true in the UK and the US (I’m originally from the UK now a US citizen) – you do not get taught how to do taxes, it is your responsibility to either learn or pay a tax professional.
They will come after you and take any measures necessary to get their tax money.
Also at $100 p/month that’s $1200 per yr and that’s over the threshold I believe so you would need to file your earnings.
About 500Kb for our theme (zipped) around 2mb unzipped – xml import file is about 500Kb (not zipped)
As this is a WordPress permissions error and not a theme error I suggest googling or searching the WordPress.org forums – I found this that may be useful:https://wordpress.org/support/topic/unable-to-create-directory-is-its-parent-directory-writable-by-the-server-1
Thanks for your input @GravityDept – I hope others will join and also get a response from Envato.
Hey Envato – any chance we can start getting faster updates to the ‘compatible with’ for products that is prominently displayed on item pages.? It seems every time there is an update to WooCommerce, WordPress etc we have to wait – I don’t understand why tbh and it’s frustrating at best.
Currently I can only go to WooCommerce 2.1.x
Current version is 2.2.4
If you cannot dedicate time to follow development cycles and have a staff member add the options at appropriate times, then possibly look at changing the format to something like the tag system where we place our own separated by commas?
I ask this because I’ve mentioned it many times over the years and it isn’t really getting any faster / better. Buyers look at this information and if they don’t see the latest version then they will either move on thinking it’s not compatible or ask the author (hopefully!).
