What happened to sales?! ( Sales Drop? )


#1

Am I the only one that noticed that after Friday’s international DDOS attack sales went down, HARD?

Is anyone else experiencing problems with sales at these levels?

Hi,

4 sales for Friday, 2 sales for Saturday, 0 for Sunday.
For me it is the same drop on weekends, as usually.


#3

Usually sales stay consistent throughout days for me, but this weekend and today made just as many sales as I’d usually make in 1 day. That’s really disturbing. And the fact that buyers get locked out of accounts and the HTML category is literally dead over the weekend is really making me worried.


#4

Sales are VERY slow for me today, but could it really be due to the DDoS attacks? Didn’t they happen last week?


#5

Yes, it happened last week, Friday if i’m not mistaken, but, apparently the rebound was immense and no one wants to talk about it! Sales are catastrophic for a lot of people! That’s why I opened this thread.


#6

I noticed drastic drop as well after 21st.


#7

So, everyone is seeing massive sale drops after the DDOS … :expressionless: great :expressionless: what now?!


#8

Looking at my earnings data, it seems like my sales took a nosedive after the 21st as well.


#9

Exactly. Analytics confirms this too for me, I’m wondering what happened?! Envato’s stance on this is that everything is fine :expressionless:


#10

Well, a few authors here and there does not mean everyone, but I guess we’ll soon see just how many have been affected.


#11

Could just be a natural hiccup in sales I guess :neutral_face:


#12

A few authors here and there… check out the latest files being released ( after the 21st ) … you’ll see the drop is huge. Only a few authors are actually selling!


#13

On ThemeForest?


#14

I looked over all marketplaces. It seems to be consistent throughout. Only a few categories seem better.


#15

Minor detail but just before this drop happened, my total sales were 1999 and they still are.

“Wait for it… wait for it…”

#16

Hmm, that is peculiar then.


#17

It’s a conspiracy!!! :smiley:


#18

I’m the reason for this :smiley: The rest of the Envato are just collateral


#19

It’s not a conspiracy. I guess something is going on with buyer accounts. A lot of them were reporting locked accounts. PayPal issues? Credit Card issues? I have no idea. The fact that there is so much silence after that DDOS makes me wonder.


#20

Well, My first time 0 sale in a year on this Sunday. I got the same graph as @TitanSlayer
