AUTHOR COMMISSION SHOULD BE 50 % ATLEAST

I think it is also better for Envato market places because 50% commission rate will attract more authors it mean more business.

So I request Envato to move from 40% commission to 50%.

Thanks.

Where were you when the start was at 25% and max was 50%?

@wickedpixel: I don,t know where it started but I think comparatively to other market places 50% is much attractive figure.

yeah omg it used to be 25-50% max... I think 40% is a fair starting point really, if you want 50% “like other marketplaces” then go elsewhere..?

The thing is FD has a lot more users than other markets, so therefore a lot more potential buyers. But as far as I know the commisions for excluive authors are the same or higher than on other markets.

I mean to say that if we compare other marketplaces those are not offering this much commission and if Envato offer 50% I think this will boost the number of authors.

mkk, look at the top selling file here – You think it would’ve sold even a quarter of that anywhere else. The answer is no. Envato’s rates are pretty reasonable compared to other marketplaces. The fact that they bumped us from 25% to 40% for exclusive members like yourself – we should be thankful. I hope this clears any doubts you may have.

PS We’re very close to 200,000 members. :)

mkk, Percentage is not the only way to attract right authors who can produce reasonable profit with files. In fact that may end up with attracting unnecessary ones too. (Example: copy cats with short-temporary goals about earnings)
