My item cost 12$ but price was changed to 6$. Why?


#1

My item cost 12$

And I have 2 sales. But each sale was with price 6$

Why 6$ and not 12$? I don’t understand


#2

Hello, check this: http://codecanyon.net/become-an-author


#3

you earned only 3,31$ from one 12$ item, not 6$.
2.69 is US Backup Witholding Tax, because u didn’t fill W-8 form (settings->personal information)
3.60 is autor fee for Envato
3.31 is you nett earn.

Hello. I’ve seen this before.

I dont undestand this one “With total cumulative sales of $0 your Net Author Earning on a $100 item would be $50.” This I have (my item cost 12$ and my net is 6$).

BUT above is written “Our author fee to exclusive authors is between 12.5%-37.5% of the item price.”

12.5%-37.5% not 50%.

Can anyone explaine this? And what is Envato buyer fee?


#5

Here you go!

And note that your statement shows $9.60 rather than $6.00. The support fee is separated out from the total item price… and you’re seeing the item price, not the list price ($12 is the list price).


#6

Ok. Its very usefull. But tell me why I see a sale with 6$ for item (without support)?


#7

Because that’s what the item price is (without support), and your statement only shows the item price, rather than the list price.


#8

And what difference between item price and list price?


#9

If it’s not an item in an author driven pricing category, then a buyers fee of 20% is taken from the item price. What’s left is the item price. 20% of $12 is $2.40, which is why you’re left with the combined item price of $9.60.


#10

I see)) But it I choose support for my item the price will be 12$+3.6$ = 15.6$
Not 6+3.6$


#11

Well yeah… if you add extended support the price will be different, if the buyer goes for an extended license the price will be different, and if the buyer buys a different item then the price will probably be different… but your example was based on a $12 item price, and the figures on your statement page are correct for that item price. Either way, take 20% from the sale price, and that’s the item price.

$15.60 minus 20% equals an item price of $12.48.


#12

Sorry, my mistake)) Just notice that regular licence include 6 month support (3.6$ from my price).
So if I get you right my item has price 12$ that includes a support price 3.6$.


#13

Sort of. Your support has an item price of $3.60, and a total sale price of $4.50. Either way, as an exclusive, level 1 author, who is selling something in a category that isn’t subject to author driven pricing… you’ll always get 50% of the sale price.

Not including taxes, of course.


#14

If you do the math and ignore the US taxes , you’ll find out that 50% of the list price = 20% of the list price + 37.5% of 80% of the list price (80% of the list price is called the item price as SpaceStockFootage has already pointed out).


You might be interested in reading this. I abandoned it when I figured out that others had beaten me to it.

Now I understand:nerd:

Thanks to all of you for help))


#16

What is a meaning of buyers fee? Is it a tax for item or any product? Autor must pay it to US government?


#17

Buyer and Author Fees are fees taken by Envato for selling here.
Tax is separate.
