Same thing. You still have a very high chance of being disabled for this. Terms Here
When determining whether misleading pricing has occurred, we may consider any evidence that the advertised price is not reflective of the actual intended sale price, including (but not limited to):
- The usual/reasonable pricing for similar items of that type within the broader industry;
- Whether the author has made any sales at the advertised price (or at any price close to that price); or
- Whether the author has been observed to temporarily lower the price in response to a sales inquiry from a customer
You are NOT ALLOWED to self purchase, reduce the price to self purchase, ask a friend to “purchase for a lower price” absolutely ANY tactic where you artificially inflate your sale count regardless of the excuse.
If a friend purchases a full price, doesn’t rate or doesn’t ask for a refund in the future for bogus reasons, all is well, although if that IP can be linked back to your account, you both risk being disabled.
Play fair. Ask your first buyer for a purchase code or contact Envato Authors Help and Support for more details on the matter.
Please be very careful on these matters. ANY attempt to game the system or artificially bump sales that is detected will result in your account being disabled without warning.
