Hey Unodor, technically, the buyer has a right to give a rating for each of those purchases. Just a thought for you ;) Might be worth your time securing those ratings.

Hey now, AudioJungle is looking a little pinker today :)

Congrats PZ! Awesome feeling right? I am happy you have made it to the very top, and am happy for your success – truly! Strong talent makes a stronger marketplace for us all.

The question is, will Tim McMorris respond to this threat to his supremacy? He needs to release a mega hit and get his top spot back.

Naaa haha. I don’t see moving down a step (or even a few steps) as threatening. Got more than enough work to keep me busy :) Touching the coveted spot will teach you one thing for sure: The only one worth really competing against is yourself. You will pass people, and you will be passed. It’s better if you see AJ as a place where we are all on the same team. Yeah there is competition, but we can do it in a way that we keep pushing and cheering eachother on. I think this has been the marketplaces greatest success.

I actually found getting to the top a little bitter sweet, you feel like you climbed Mount Everest to get to the top, and then you’re there and it’s like…..now what. haha.

So again, a huge congrats to you PZ, I am excited for you! When I get some more time, you better believe I’m going to be trying to get it back :)

Thanks for the clarification. The documentation you linked is related to a shortcode, which can be used quite easily, without coding. For example, the following shortcode will do something like what you described in the last message, i.e. sort ascending, no thumbnails, no submit button. [woocommerce_product_search order="ASC" product_thumbnails="no" submit_button="no"]

Just put it in a page and it will render automatically. It may work in a widget as well, not 100% sure though.

YES!! That is what I needed. Thank you very much.

To show my appreciation for your help, I just purchased your Tax Display By Country Item :) just a little extra thanks!

I’m not sure I understand your requirements, but the WooThemes Product Finder plugin allows to search for products in a more flexible way.

Unfortunately that won’t help with my issue, but I really appreciate the response :)

Basically I have a site that uses the woocommerce product search and I want to customize search options like: the number of results it returns, the order of items, whether to show product thumbnails or not, whether to show the search button icon etc. All these option are outlined on the page I linked to above.

The problem for me is, I don’t know how to call these attributes so that they take effect in the search form. I’m looking for a way to manipulate the attributes so I can modify my search.

Hope that’s more clear :)

I am looking for a woocommerce plugin that allows me to change (from the admin section) the attributes of the product search form ( see here under the “advanced” section: http://docs.woothemes.com/document/woocommerce-product-search/shortcodes/#section-3 )

I just want to change the way that the product search behaves, but I can’t find any plugin that does this! I am horrible at altering the functions file, I need something simpler.

If this exists, please point me in the right direction!

Thanks so much :)

Yesterday I was trying to buy someones file on PhotoDune and I had an error 4 or 5 times after hitting the purchase button. I kept trying and finally it went through. I’ve never seen that happen before. A little worrying if the buyer was not as persistent as I was!

I’ve been trying to figure this our for about a week without any success.

On all of my web browsers, Envato glyph icons don’t show up. They appear as tiny boxes without anything in them.

I have tried clearing my cache, and have all browsers to allow pages to use custom fonts.

Finally today trying my luck with Opera, I was able to find this by inspecting the element:

Font from origin 'http://dmypbau5frl9g.cloudfront.net' has been blocked from loading by Cross-Origin Resource Sharing policy: No 'Access-Control-Allow-Origin' header is present on the requested resource. Origin 'http://audiojungle.net' is therefore not allowed access. 8017261?WT.ac=weekly_feature&WT.z_author=BenMillan:1
Opera has modified script or content on www.google.ca (PATCH-1176, Navigation keys are not working on Google - hide Opera tag from userAgent for all sites except hangouts). See browser.js for details browser.js:65

Any help would be awesome! Thanks! :)

Anybody find a solution for this??

Gah. I’m having this same problem too. It’s in all browsers for me though – and only on Envato sites! Anyone find an answer yet? Tried clearing cache, allow sites custom fonts are enabled.

I am Canadian (and run a incorporated business) so many of the present tax issues don’t effect our business, but I wanted to comment as we’ve contacted our lawyers about the “authors are the direct sellers” issue. This was necessary as (should things be that way) it complicates things in Canada. Thought I would post our findings here to shed additional light on the subject.

The Nitty Gritty

Our lawyers say (putting their words into simple language) regardless of the current language used by Envato to suggest authors are selling directly to buyers, the Canadian government views the flow of money as final authority in determining who the actual “seller” is.

Knowing about Envato already, and understanding the marketplace from dealings in the past, they say there is overwhelming evidence that authors are not selling directly to buyers, and that Envato’s argument would absolutely not hold up in a court of law if push came to shove.

Harmonized Sales Tax

Beyond this, there is an argument that Canadian authors would also be required to be charging and collecting a Harmonized Sales Tax from Canadian customers (which is different for every province – 13% where we operate), remitting that money to the government monthly. In Canada, selling digital goods can fall between “Services” and “Intellectual Property” depending on the agreement and what is done with the goods. In some cases no tax is required, in other cases it is. Whether or not HST must be charged depends on a number of things which is too long to get into here.

Retroactive Tax Payments

If we have always been the direct “seller”, though that is clearly not the case, the government will be very likely to request retroactive HST payments dating back to the creation of accounts. Not only will they want the tax, but they would include interest fees and a penalty for each year missed.

If that should happen, and the government decides to pursue money that it believes it’s owed, we have a extremely serious problem here. A very serious legal problem that will likely end in a lawsuit against Envato as no one is going to let the fact that we have not been the direct sellers slide. Unfortunately this position puts authors in a corner and the only way out is to show the government who the real seller has been.

The Facts

Simply put, to say that authors have been selling directly to buyers all along is deceptive and untrue. Such a claim is the most dangerous claim I have heard since joining Envato and it threatens this entire marketplace.

As noted by some already, the very role that Envato plays clearly indicates that they are in fact the seller:

  • Envato sets & controls the prices
  • Envato sets & controls the terms
  • Envato controls the flow of information
  • Envato controls & stores customer information
  • Envato issues the licenses
  • Envato receives funds directly from buyers
  • Envato provides receipts to buyers
  • Envato pays authors

If I am the direct seller, I need to collect HST from Canadian customers – IMMEDIATELY. I need to have access to all customer information. Regardless of what is being said, we neither have the tools or power to be that.
