This change only benefits Envato. Can the authors get something in return, such as you to stop advertising Elements on our product pages?
Or perhaps a better % from sales. Even with exclusivity, I make 45-50% from my JS projects and 38-45% from my WP projects. I think that’s a really bad deal, especially for being exclusive.
Meanwhile, Envato takes a big cut from every single sale on the marketplace, expands to the US, advertizes Elements on our product pages and tells us how good this all is for us.
In the recent years, the authors seem to have been worse and worse while Envato better and better. Why is that? Is it because you exploit, profit and give little in return? How long do you think this model will last before it collapses?
