I am personally running a few partnerships on ThemeForest. Some items are on my account, some are on the partner’s account.
Up to now, it was easy enough to organise a withdrawal to the partner’s paypal e-mail address on the last day of the month (or any agreed time, really).
The new system with only one person able to withdraw will makes things much more complicated, and mean that authors, once again, lose a part of their earnings in transfer fees.
Envato - are you aware that most your items come from partnerships - starting with your most popular theme Avada?
For small authors with multiple partnerships, the situation becomes really, really stinky. Less earnings, more manual procedures and more complications regarding taxes…
We need to bump this thread up and get a lot more authors pitch in - because there are a lot of us really not looking forward to this change.
Also, search on these forums sucks. I searched a couple of times to see if a thread like this was created before creating a new one - and I only found out about it today.
Thanks @Dream_Theme for starting the thread - very surprised it only has 9 posts at this point…
