Earnings Report discussion (October 2022)

I’m sure inflation is hitting Envato also. It isn’t any different than working at a store that has to cut back on employees or hours and can’t give a pay raise or even has to cut salaries. There is no guarantee that we will continue to earn what we were a year ago just because we are selling on the same platform.

It is the same as selling homemade items on Etsy. Sales can be good and then they fizzled out because that trend is over. It isn’t Etsy’s fault. Sale markets are volatile and business people have to shift and change and look for new opportunities.

This could give to Envato the motivation to change the business model for CodeCanyon/ThemeForest. Business model already adopted by many platform.

No more lifetime updates, but yearly renewal (eventually at lower cost of the theme/plugin price).

It’s really hard checking elements earnings day after day, lower and lower. How low will this get? Not only this month, I mean next month and next…
I am a believer but we all authors need some perspective and motivation to keep believing

Too many files, and too many authors, this platform was made to profit Envato, not the author!

Complaining now is too late my friends.

No update today?

nope

I also removed most items from Elements recently and my main market (Themeforest) sales increased. Really regretted why didn’t remove them earlier :neutral_face:

Well, that maybe works for you and other authors, and that’s great, but I think everything depends on every market and every author perspective. In my case, I wouldn’t remove items from Elements, because even with ups and big downs these days, since I joined Elements in 2019, earnings were always more than Videohive

Everyday element calculators are not working properly. and earnings are going to down… how can we believe that this calculator, earning calculation is perfect?

I have asked this question many times and have never received an answer. I ask again. Why do Envato hide from us the number of people who clicked the DOWNLOAD button? Why is it a secret? Why is this information camouflaged behind a thick layer of indirect statics? Why can’t you just know how many people have visited a product page and how many people have downloaded it?

WHY?

It updated today but it seems like yesterday’s earnings were not added.

At some point, the earnings from elements will match or lessen than market, and at that stage market exclusives will be the way to go forward.

Are we missing a day of earnings now or not?
I’ve lost my count

@BenLeong I still try to understand the earnings calculations. The earnings are added to my account at the beggining date of the user’s subscription? Because I can see earnings before the published day of the item.

The earnings are added at the end of the subscription that last 33 days, but they count the first day they subscribed.
So today 31st October you are making money from those who subscribed around 28th Sept, that’s why if you upload something today and gets downloaded today, you’ll find it in the September report.
