Hey everyone, I came from over yonder from that there ThemeForest! I don’t venture over here very often but I thought this might be useful for some of you.
As you can see here a friend and I setup a little online service so envato authors can receive sales notifications via email and/or twitter.
Also, Mark pointed out a genius who made a cool little widget that does this and more here. So I am aware of that now just in case anyone wanted to tell me I’m too late on the idea, lol. I’m on a Mac though and couldn’t get it working.
A few things I pointed out in the other thread: It’s in beta and could pulled suddenly if Envato gives us the smack down or when they setup notifications which is probably right around the corner, lol. We’re also not affiliated with Envato in any way except that we’re just a couple authors who wanted sales notifications.
Anyway, enjoy it while it’s there if you want.
Very cool :D—It’s a good tool for the “average” author. The high sellers would get flooded with emails.
There will be different time increments soon so you’ll be able to choose if you only want to be notified every 30 min, 1 hour, etc. So for the high selling authors, they’ll just get a notification saying they’ve received 50934092984 sales in the update frequency they choose. lol
It wouldn’t be wise for envato to “smack down” their more ambitious and problem-solving developers…
i eventually got it to work on a mac see my post at the top of your linked page
Useful one, thanks a lot.
Useful. I subscribed my mail.

a few of us have built our own sales monitoring applications. For instance my one shows:
- last sale - total sales this month - estimated sales for month - estimated income - real time currency conversion - comment browser
