I’m furious and disgusted with Envato Market. I have an $8 credit on my account. In order to use that credit, this scam of a company is requiring that I add “credits” to my account in increments of $10 with a minimum of $20. Therefore, in order to use that $8 credit to purchase a $40 item, I have to add another $40 to my account. If I add $30 it’s not enough. So… after I add $40 I have $48 on my account. After purchasing a $40 item I will STILL have an $8 credit. And yes I realize this isn’t a lot of money but that’s not the point. If you think about it, it’s astounding how much money they’re making by demanding people purchase credits that so many of them will never use.
This is completely unacceptable. This is horrible way to do business and amounts to a total scam… practically theft. I’ve never once had to add “credits” to an account to purchase anything online. It wouldn’t be half bad if we could add exactly the amount that we wish to purchase but your demand that we add a minimum of $20 is completely outrageous… a total con job. I will never purchase one thing from Envato Market again and will be reporting this company to the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission. I advise everyone to stop doing business with Envato Market. Unbelievable scam.
