Hi there

I was wondering if there are any options in the pipeline to have both exclusive and non-exclusive files without having 2 user accounts.

At the moment, the exclusivity is based on the author not on the files, any chance of this changing? If I want to sell files exclusively, can I only do it by having 2 user accounts (one for exclusive files and one for non-exclusive)?

It would be nice to just change the option to file specific as opposed to user specific. Then again is there any specific reason you wouldn’t want to present a potential buyer with two options with every file?

I thought so, but was wondering if there were any plans to change it (based on the files not on the author)

The pros are that an author gets a higher commission on exclusive files and the commission increases on a sliding scale starting at 40% (the more you sell the higher your commission). As a non exclusive author, the commission is a flat rate of 25% regardless of earnings/sales.

Becoming an exclusive author was the best choice I could ever make. I goofed around on other marketplaces before taking this decision and I’m glad I did. Envato is the best. :)

I think I remember Jason or Cy mentioning exclusiveness on a per file basis was in the works, I may be wrong though… anyone official know?

I changed from exclusive to non exclusive, so I’m looking at the option of reversing it or starting a new exclusive account, as some of my files are exclusive to GR. I think staying exclusive is a way better option.

Exclusive could be good when you’re a top author and throughout the times that AD has a large market domination compensating for ‘missed other sales’. In any other case, which I think is for most authors, I think non-exclusive is probably better. But hey, if it were up to me to make the choice for all other authors I’d prefer they stick to AD … less competition on other sites hehe ;)
