I normally ignore this ‘sales’ threads as being here for 6 years I know what to expect.
However I’ve submitted new theme on Friday, although it’s niche theme and I wasn’t expecting big sales from the start, adding new theme always brought more interest for other themes in portfolio. This time it’s a big decrease in sales.
Thanks for your feedback Pixel, and you’re absolutely right the theme reviewers should tell the authors their mistake and point of view to make them grow better.
They are reviewers, not trainers.
One thing you should definitely work on is typography, why the font is so small? it’s hard to read
Chow – Recipe & Food WordPress Theme for: Food & Beverages: $1,000 http://themeforest.net/item/chow-recipe-food-wordpress-theme/10802589
The color scheme is truly awful and hard to read in the top section, also you need to improve buttons, they are too blunt. I like the typography, nice header fonts. It’s not bad start but a lot of work ahead of you to finish this one
What does Envato do if the author doesn’t fill out all the account information?
On a theme we bought last month, we have an invoice from the buyer and one from Envato. The Envato one is OK, however the author invoice has only the name and country of the author.
This is technically not an invoice and can not be used legally in our country or probably any country. We need minimum a full legal address with postcode, ideally a business number. How can this be resolved?
Exactly, sooner or later it will be forced on authors to fill full data, because now it’s rather useless for the reasons you’ve stated, on the other side, what author is supposed to do if the buyer fills the invoice with random characters?
Why is it just for authors outside of the EU? What about authors from EU? We need even more those fields to make the invoices legal.
Will there be proper Knowledge Base module available as the ‘view articles’ button suggest or is it just renamed FAQ section from current Ticksy?
Even 2.3.3 is here.. Three updates on one day..
You do whatever you want Envato, i’ll still make one invoice per month and put your company details on it. This is crazy, you’ve screwed us all. Thank God i live in a country in which i don’t have to comply to the stupid mess you’ve just made.
That’s probably what every german author should be doing as well. As far as I (and german accountants) know, Envato is a reseller for german law and tax purposes and authors earn a monthly commission payout which we have to invoice directly to Envato.I’m not a tax specialist and this is my personal opinion, so please contact your own accountant in this regards, but from my experience this is what most “professional” (if you can say so) authors do right now.
Question is, with Envato collecting VAT and being registered with MOSS, do they somehow report the VAT in our name? Because if yes, then your story won’t hold.
