From my view the biggest question I sit with regarding this experiment/overly sales number focus/the search engine in general:

Why would you use the same sales strategy for music and wordpress themes for example, or any of the other markets for that matter? It’s such different worlds and surely it must be worlds that needs specialised experiments? Some products are more timeless, others not so. Ratings are interesting in some markets, others not at all.

Just because your living room is awesome with a carpet floor, does not necessarily mean your bathroom should have it too?

How about hiring some more specialists for each market? Could that be an interesting and lucrative investments for the markets in the long run?


Hello! Could you give us an answer?

Worst thing i’v ever seen, Hope @collis speak like past. I’m uploading my item here but I prefer to run my own shop in this situation. We have many problems with envato market such as long time review ,countless taxes and both percentage & flat fees!

But this one is not really tolerable …

Envato remember you are big but you are not the king, Everything has a certain limit.
We make you big stone by stone, All the authors! Even top authors was newbie a day.

You are doing many unequal things since the company moved to that damn country.


What kind if stupid things you are experiments which is really bad things for the new item. Please stop this.


Hi James,
1 year ago I pushed new update for one of my WordPress themes it was expensive update therefor I contacted the support asked them if it possible to put the item at the top of the category page, The answer was already known for me but I was just shaking the water.
I ended up by reducing the price so the item can be shown if people sorted low to high price my results were great, So I really hope if these experiments will help the market even the fact it’s really started to hurt me :frowning:

Hi @trent-aus

Just wanted to inform you guys that the trending search function is not working in many categories at AudioJungle. In for example Electronica and Funk/Groove etc items from 2011-2012 shows up, many with zero sales.

Thanks for looking into it!

Hello. I noticed recently that my sales have fallen by about 60% at Audiojungle. New quality items do not recruit sales; they are equal to 0. My old works that were worse in quality recruited sales. This has already been going on for month. What to do not elite authors?


It’s currently showing newest items by default.

On WordPress Category it is still Best Rated showing first when you are logged in…

this is one of your many worst decisions

Check this theme, not only the design isMEGA outdated, it also hasn’t been updated since 2015. It is triggering sales right now.



Me either. And I have no sales drop… But! We here not for the first year, and we have items that customers can find through the search. New authors suffering more than others.

Anyway, I have several items to upload and I’m just sitting here waiting for the end of the experiment. It’s already 2 weeks by the way.


Different browsers, different devices - different results. It’ A/B/C/D test

Need to add “Recently updated items”


2 weeks of suffering and suspense for newbies (and not only), no sales = no motivation to go on.


and no one knows how long this will last?
