Hi,

For a project i am working on validating our customers purchase code.. This is not so harsh as ton of people did it before.

But now i verify only 1 item and since alot of people buy more items of us i don’t want them to validate everything by purchase key..

So i am looking for either one of these with the api..

1) Retrieve what the authenticated buyer also bought (every bought he made) But it think this is not possible because of privacy terms.

2) Retrieve all our buyers names (so we can check each name on the validated one.. Yeah this way is a bit extreme but that’s the best i could come up with.

Is this possible with the envato api, since there is no reference to this in the documentation?

In the bleeding edge they have a verify purchase method.

Hi,

I allready have the verify option build in. But say someone bought 4 products off us. I can understand people don’t want to enter all 4 purchase codes just one should be enough. So if i validate one i want to be able to check if they bought other items of us.

Now talking about 4 products but this could be much more when working on other marketplaces..

guys common, present purchase verification system is really fail. there must be more user friendly way how to proof the purchase by the users.

For example insert special button into the download section (or product page). If user hit the button, envato will call your page and send you purchase proof through POST method.

Or insert the purchase code into the download page, skip the certificate step pls.

I think that this is the biggest weakness of envato. Its so hard for developers to detect who bought their item, and so hard for users to cooperate. Lot of users are disgused by the verification.

I really appeal to you, developers, to solve this biggest envato problem and make our lives more livable :)

Really nice post Freshface i totally agree.

I was really hoping for a solution in the ways that i provided. Not really great but better then how we do it now.. We really have to ask all our customers to send us the verification mail. Just since that is the fastest way for now.

I hope Envato makes a upgrade for this.

After some research i found out that David Baker has it in his Ticket system:

Envato Integration I didn’t get a chance to complete Envato integration. This will allow envato marketplace authors (like myself) to use this plugin to provide support to their envato customres (like you). It will show a purchase history & envato username along side the ticket information. Also allowing your customers to select which envato product they require support for via the lightbox ticket form. Weo!! Get in quick, the price might rise when this is done.

How did he do it then? Any ideas?

Suggestions?
