Exclusivity Warning from Envato

Hello Everyone!

We just received an exclusivity warning from Envato support. I’m sharing brief details of the product.

Our template: Mizzle - Multipurpose Technology React Template by coderthemes | ThemeForest, which is a React version of Mizzle HTML Version (Which is selling by another author at Bootstrap Market). We collaborated with that author and created a react version of this template.

We did some research about this type of collaboration & there are some products already selling HTML versions to other markets and other versions are in Themeforest (I know they collaborate & I haven’t any problem with that).
When it comes to us then it is a violation of exclusivity. Although we already have permission from the original author and aren’t selling the original product, we are selling another version of that product, which many authors already do.

I’m sharing some examples of ThemeForest templates which has the same:

Hope other authors also support us.

Best Regards,
Coderthemes

You cannot sell the items elsewhere with the exclusivity at Envato.
Around 2018, if I’m not mistaken, they have changed the policy and added the details, if you have PSD on Envato, you cannot sell the WP/HTML or any other version at any marketplace.

Hi @ki-themes

We are not the original author of that template. We created a React version of that template (Which is from another author, we do collaborate with that author)

The problem here is that this template’s Bootstrap version is sold on the Bootstrap themes website. Does the original author still have a version here on Envato?

Hi @DeoThemes

No, the original author is not selling on the Envato.

You can’t sell the item as exclusive at Envato. You will need to change your account settings if you want to sell it or remove it from marketplace.

Does exclusivity extend to related items?

Yes.
