Overall, the bundles supposed to be made in such a way to pull new buyers with easy transaction but the opposite happens right now: Make current buyers to deposit 1 extra dollar.

hey sry for late reply VF, after a couple of days of thinking, I feel the bundles are not a good thing right now. We’re still in the moment where all of this selling digital goods, is new, and so there’s no need to discount something wich is selling out since only 4 years, and is coming out right now, I think it can be done much much later. Like clothes…

That’s the reason why you can see many people complain about this bundle thing. It makes thing cheaper and cheaper overall, even at the very beginning of the product life. And now with this “mini-bundle” I think they would release the bundle on a more occasional basis and longer duration, so buyers tend to wait for the bundles instead of browsing the waves of items coming everyday. And with the items become cheaper and cheaper, the buyers would soon forget about the true value of the items which would leads to a general decrease in price soon, just to get sales. Think about the whole marketplace as a supermarket. With bundles releasing like this it makes me feel like the market is too much over-saturated and the market owner are trying to bundle every every little things just to get some sales before closing down the supermarket?

Just my personal opinion at this very moment.

Yes this place is like a supermarket, and as in a supermarket enter different type of targets and personas Technically what you say is right, but there is a type of target (wich is most of buyers) that just want quality, they don’t care about dollars in terms of 1-10$: they choose the files they need and they buy them with impulsivity, no matter the price. The type of buyers that wait for bundles is usually other Authors only, because they don’t have a necessity at the moment, and they need the most generic files. I think bundles are bad at the moment because they just discount, but you have to consider that all these sales wouldn’t come if it wasn’t for Bundles… it’s kinda hard to say, I think is just a bit early. And the bundles should have less quality files, not the top seller files..

Absolutely agree on this. The way Envato staff are choosing items for the bundle now is making buyers think that this is not simply a “bundle”, it’s a pack of finest selected top rated most popular items. If it’s already the finest, how would buyers need the rest then? Just take one and never have to come back again :).

That’s also the reason why I prefer the shopping cart with coupon more. Buyer still get discounted, even for single item. And more important, the promotion is fair for every author and items, not the finest selected one.

Bundles can be harmless as long as we have guaranteed search enhancements made in reasonable intervals – for regular items. Secondly the way the bundles being sketched right now is a shame for the community. I am surprised none of the authors here questions about the shady $19 attempt. For me it is an obvious insult towards any buyer with current payment system.

19$ :)

you deposit 20$ or you pay 21$ directly. May look ok to buyers who bought something before and know the system but any new buyer will probably feel uneasy about this. Not a good welcoming.

You say 19$ but in any case you need to pay 20$ or 21$.

They will probably purchase anyway but first impression is really important. Not a good way to start a relationship.
