I started selling at CodeCanyon and the author fees looked a lot to me.
I am selling a product with $14 price tag. Envato gets $5 as buyer fee and gets 37.5% of the $9 left. I know Envato says the buyer fee for their services but most of the buyers don’t know this. It really does not seem fair to me. At the end, $14 is paid for my product, but I can only get $5.
On the other hand, if there will be a buyer fee, at least it can depends on the price, not category. $5 can be fair enough for a $59 product but it is too much for a product is under $15 I am giving my examples related with my product but I think these are common problems. And why buyer fee goes crazy when it comes to the Extended license? The services that Envato offers to the buyer are not changing when buyer changes the license.
And the last thing, I really do not understand why Envato getting a cut from the support sales? After they take $9 dollar from $14, just can’t they leave it to me at least?
