So far all I’ve uploaded are MP3s at 320K. Would it be beneficial to include a wav file, too?

Absolutely. It’s always best to offer the customer both choices. I personally provide both, as some customers prefer the highest possible bit rate, or wish to use it in an application that won’t accept mp3 formats.

+1. It really isn’t much additional work and why not right? That little detail may make or break a sale so why not get it right?

Absolutely, or if you choose just one format IMO it should be the uncompressed WAV. In fact, that’s all I’ve been including because once you have that you should be able to convert to MP3 or whatever else with any number of programs.

One big issue with MP3 is that the format sometimes creates a bit of space at the end or the beginning of a song. Not a big deal with a normal full track, but definitely with a loop.

I always provide both. I know if I were the buyer, I would appreciate the flexibility.

I provide WAV only. Including both files is not what will bring you sales.

Would be nice if Envato could share some of the customer feedback. This really shouldn’t be a question that needs to be asked. With the volume of sales made, surely by now there has been enough feedback on the issue. Why leave the authors in the dark about these issues? If customers are turning away because a track they want is only available as MP3, that one less sale for everyone. There should be an updated “best practices” page based on customer feedback that details the customers preferences.

I don’t know why a filmmaker or video editor etc. would ever use an MP3, just guys making YouTube videos at home I guess. So I would say definitely always include the .WAV. :)
