I am looking to use Envato Studio to customize some of my PHP items – turn them into WP Plugins. I need to send one of my items to one of the provides I have been speaking with there, but I was worried that by sending the full code/item I may be breaking my exclusive agreement with Envato.
Does any one have any experience with this?Thanks for any help.
It is your item. As long as you are not distributing your item through other channels i.e. other marketplaces or your personal online shop, your good.
Edit: with distribution i mean not directly competing with Envato.
While I agree that there are many more authors now and a greater selection of files, this also means the marketplace has grown bigger. The growth alone should allow it to have even greater exposure enabling us to sell more, not less.
Perhaps this is just an isolated month or suddenly there’s just so much choice and too much distraction ? Are we facing the paradox of choice where more is less ?
Quite frankly my traffic is the same as it is used to be lol so going to try and keep positive here and continue to use this low moment to improve further and perhaps release more items. 5 more days to go, already lost hope of recuperating loses this month.
Hi fellow authors,
I was wondering how do you guys handle those buyers that start with pre-sale questions and never stop. I’m glad those users are interested in my items but I really can’t dedicate that much time per day to a single user which is not even a customer of mine (and might never be).
I’m not even sure I want these users as customers as if they can abuse of pre-sale questions, I’m afraid supporting them would be an endless nightmare..!
24 days and 32 (long) questions later do you think it’s enough to say “PLEASE LEAVE ME ALOOONE!” ? I think our chat got even longer that the ones I have with my girlfriend!How would you say it without sounding harsh?
haha quite long indeed. I’d suppose you are good friends by now
Well, being rude cannot help at all for sure. [To this particular user] Just respond only when you have time and reply to key points. Try not to include more information than what they are asking. Good luck lol
If you requested a withdrawal then you have to wait until the 15th of september. Envato will start making the deposits then. Basically, how it works is that you request a withdrawal before the month ends, which is most likely what you’ve done so far. Then on the 15th of the following month, your money will get deposited.
Going to the bank now is not going to yield anything. Envato has not sent the money yet
The saturation of the market brings high instability, a while back you could predict a lot of things and even if you were not among weekly most popular you could have good stable sales, you can still but it is much much harder. There are just so many items and choices that either people run to the most popular list or buy those really standing out items.
Agree with this. Unable to come up with better reasoning myself. Will likely become non-exclusive in the long term and look for greener pastures
Not a good month for me. It pretty much pushes me over the edge and I’ve started blogging now lol.
It does reduce support drastically which means more time to work on new features, updates/products. Might be able to recuperate losses next month
Love these threads because someone else is always worse off than you and you just know if your not in the top 30, it’s got to simply be a bad month (hopefully that is all it is)
Cool interview, this is first class!
egliote saidFrom where did you got those rules ?
I have not withdrawn their money. The rules were written that the money must be withdrawn after a year in which the money is withdrawn. Do I have to withdraw the money after a year, when I received the first money?
I think he is referring to the withdrawal guide
For earnings of less than $50 you can spend your earnings on any of the Envato Marketplaces. If your balance is still below $50 after 12 months, you can withdraw the balance to a PayPal account.
@egliote, apparently you need to wait a year as you suspected in order to withdraw, if your earnings are below $50 and you’ve had that balance for a period of 12 months as the guide says.
In June, Mr. Persson said Mojang “does not exist to make as much money as possible for the owners.” Instead, he said, “Mojang exists because I got lucky with ‘Minecraft,’ and it got way bigger than I could handle on my own.”
2.5 billion dollars later…
As you might already know, Persson is the creator of Minecraft and the majority shareholder at Mojang. He’s decided that he doesn’t want the responsibility of owning a company of such global significance. Over the past few years he’s made attempts to work on smaller projects, but the pressure of owning Minecraft became too much for him to handle. The only option was to sell Mojang. He’ll continue to do cool stuff though. Don’t worry about that.
lol jokes apart, this seems to be a very good investment. They appear to have made 115 million in profits last year from a 291 million revenue, which is good growth expectations in Microsoft’s hands
They also appeared to be heavy critics of Microsoft and refused to make a version for windows phone reputing the platform too small. I guess with their user base, they can move a lot of weight in the tech industry, which makes them a good asset to acquire.
