Hi there, to all!
I have been thinking about idea and would like some of your thoughts, pros or cons. Anything. I believe that some one has come up on similar thoughts, similar idea. I haven’t been searching and reading forums often - in this case, please Envato - delete my post and, please, inform me about bad idea.
What is this idea?
We, who post items to Envato Market(s) got more or less files rejected. We put a lot of work in accepted and rejected files. There is no difference. Those files never see a light of Envato Market place. Well, we can send them to other marketplaces. But … Envato looses time with review process, payment to staff, space on storage units, … authors loose faith, hope and their work - and both of us loose money. We have nothing from rejected items. Envato has nothing from those items either.
What if …
What if Envato would have special ‘corner’ with rejected items? I am aware of first bad point: files and storage would grow and grow, since many files are rejected.
Envato could accept a percentage of those rejected items - 10, 20% of all rejected items - if not all. And put them into special ‘corner of rejected items’ or ‘Sale items’ - with no responsibility (from authors and from Envato) to any kind of quality points that item has to have to be accepted. Clear statement put to those items. Buyer’s responsibility in 100%.
And set special price to those ‘rejected items corner’ - like a sale of goods with ‘failure’ in real stores. Lowered price. Sale price. Whatever …
So little less money would be lost - to authors and to Envato. I am sure that items would sell any way. Do you?
What do you think? Bad or good idea?
Thank you for your thoughts and for your time, friends! And best of luck to all!
Maybe this bad idea is too much linked to real world economy - stores. Where you can buy goods with small faults - with lowered prices. I am sure every one knows stores have faulty goods and they sell. Any way - thanks for your toughs. If I would get Apple with small scratch on screen or new apartment with bad painting in living room for half of a price - I would buy it. Would you not? Not to mention clothes with small faults for half a price … Just a thought … Do not get me wrong, please! I have had no bad intentions at all. Why would I?
