New Permanent Author Rates on Envato Marketplaces!

Huge Author News!

For four years the Envato Marketplaces have helped authors around the world earn an income selling their digital wares. Along the way we’ve grown from one marketplace to seven, with more on the way. We’ve gone from hundreds of members to hundreds of thousands. Items from our marketplaces have appeared in projects for companies big and small, all around the world. And most importantly of all, we’ve had thousands of authors cash out earnings, ranging from a bit of money for a big weekend to sums in the tens of thousands of dollars a month!

It’s been an amazing ride, and here at Envato we are completely committed to making these the best damn marketplaces around. That’s why I’m very excited today to announce that as of the end of September we are rolling out some dramatically improved rates for all our exclusive authors!

As the sites have grown, so has our revenue. As we increase in volume and size we’re able to push back more and more to the authors. This is in fact our third rates increase now, and it’s always a really happy day when we get to make the changeover and start putting more money in author’s hands.

The new rates have TWO major improvements over the old system which will make for massive benefits for authors.

New Baseline: 50% – 70%

The first thing to know about the new rates is that all exclusive authors will start at a baseline of 50%. This means starting authors walk away with one fifth more than they used to right out of the gates.

The new baseline also means that for a new author the split is dead even when they arrive. Then over time as they sell more and become a more acclimatised author who understands how to submit, what needs to be done to get approved, what sells well, and so on, these rates go up to hit a maximum of 70%.

While we haven’t changed that max rate, I do have some more very good news:

70% is Now MUCH Quicker and More Achievable

In our old rates system you needed to sell $300,000 worth of files to reach the legendary 70%. Despite the difficulty this entails, we’ve actually still had a handful of authors reach those lofty heights.

However it’s become clear that this range was just too high, especially for marketplaces like AudioJungle and GraphicRiver. So I’m thrilled to tell you that in our new rates system, we’ve reduced this path down by an enormous margin of $225,000.

As of the end of September authors will need to reach a much more achievable target of $75,000 of gross sales to get to 70%. This is still a big amount, but a huge reduction.

This is Thanks to the Site Managers!

Wondering who was responsible for pushing the new rates through? Well this is a good time for all authors to say a big thank you to the Site Manager team.

While the board and myself were understandably hesitant about the massive financial consequences of this change, it was our Marketplace Manager Jason and his whole Site Management team of Lance, Jeffrey, Scott, Mark, Amanda and Matthias who really pushed for the changes to happen and for them to go through sooner rather than later!

The Site Manager Team

So if you’d like to attribute this change for authors somewhere, please say a big thank you to all the Site Managers. They do an amazing job championing the marketplaces in the company, pushing not just for rates but for fixes and improvements, changes and features to make their sites work better and be the best sites they can be. Sometimes things take a while to happen, and I know sometimes in the past year they have had to front up to some frustrating issues on the marketplaces. It’s important to remember however that these guys are responsible for much of the good stuff you see around our marketplaces.

So I think this is a good time to give them some big kudos and props for representing all authors and bringing home the bacon!

The Full Rates Table

Starting midnight September 30th, all exclusive authors will move to the new rates table (shown below). All exclusive authors will see an immediate jump as well as a quicker progression up the ladder. Best of all, many authors will suddenly be catapulted up to the 70% rate!

As in the past, we’re very focused on creating unique marketplaces of digital content. As such, the rates for people selling their work on our sites as part of a large portfolio of places they sell through, will remain at the same previous non-exclusive rate of 25%. We always welcome these authors to switch over and join us as exclusives to take advantage of the new rates! And remember you can still sell other things elsewhere, we just want the files you have with us to be exclusively available through Envato.

Happy Birthday Authors!

So on the fourth anniversary since our first marketplace FlashDen first hit the web, I’d like to take a moment and say Happy 4th Birthday to all our authors. Thank you so much for choosing to sell with us. Thank you so much for being a part of our amazing community. Thank you for helping us make the Envato Marketplaces what they are.

One More Thing …

To borrow a line from Mr Jobs, there’s just one more thing. Next week, I’ll be back with a very exciting announcement – a whole new Envato Marketplace! Yep it’s one heck of an August for us here at Envato, so stay tuned to Envato Notes for even more big news!

    Envato has to be the classiest bunch of individuals to ever grace the web. It’s like an office full of Australian Frank Sinatras and Morgan Freemans.

    • Ryan Allen on the 25th August

      It’s up to you, New York! New York!

    Really amazing and motivating… Thanks!

  36. Brendan Falkowski on the 25th August

    Blown away by the new numbers. On first glance I thought 70% was dropped to $225k which would be huge, but going down to $75k is a massive shift! The new rates will translate to a few hundred dollars extra each month. Big thanks to the Envato Site Managers.

  37. Dave Bergschneider on the 25th August

    I might actually come over now. The pricing were no where near attractive enough before.

  38. bringthepixel on the 25th August

    This is really a great thing to hear.
    Happy birthday authors :D.

  76. iamfriendly on the 25th August

    As a brand new author (having made about $200 of sales) all I can say is “Wow!”. This is such a massive motivational incentive to really push forward and create some eye-catching products to sell here on, let’s face it, the best digital marketplace on the web.

    Thank you so much for these changes, they will mean a massive amount to a lot of people and it’s great to see that you guys don’t forget where your income stream comes from like so many companies do.

    Many thanks,

    @iamfriendly

  77. MSFX on the 25th August

    wow, very kind of you :)!

  78. Bluz on the 25th August

    This is SOOOOOOOOOOOO AWESOME!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  79. Liza on the 25th August

    Thanks, these are awesome news!

    As an author, I only made a few hundreds, but as an affiliate, I referred over 1500 clients I think, so I am very curious if the affiliate rate $$ will drop, at the cost of the author’s rate?

    • Collis Ta'eed on the 25th August

      Hey Liza, there won’t be any change to the affiliate rate! Thanks so much for referring all those users!!

  80. Cosmin Negoita on the 25th August

    This is more fair for all of us right now. Great news!

  81. Jeff on the 25th August

    Awesome!
    That’s just made my morning…day…month!

    Wahooooooooo…

  82. Mark Dijkstra on the 25th August

    Sweet, nice!!! Good job Envato staff ;) Next year new rates 60% ? :P

  83. Kushagra on the 25th August

    Wow, that’s a amazing news!!
    Thanks Envato and congrats!

  84. Kriesi on the 25th August

    Great news for all the authors out there ;)

    Could you also increase the max payment rate? maybe just 1 or 2% but it would be cool for those of us that already are at 70% to hunt for a new rate :)

    • Collis Ta'eed on the 25th August

      hehe I wish we could! ;-) We’re going to have to find other benefits for you!

    • Kriesi on the 25th August

      Sounds great! Since i hit the 70% mark the whole system lost a lot of its playfulness to me, curious what you come up with :)

    • Rune Ecklon (UI20) on the 25th August

      It is almost like leveling up in World of Warcraft. I hope I get a better sword with like +4in Jquery bonus and +3 in PHP.

    • Kriesi on the 25th August

      Exactly ;D I was WOW addicted a long time and I think part of the success of the marketplaces is that they add a playful touch to the wohle system. with badgets, and rates as accomplishments :)

      Would be cool to hunt for something again which somehow increases the income ;D

    • Rune Ecklon (UI20) on the 25th August

      The good thing is that being addicted to say Themeforest pays you top dollar while being addicted to WOW gives you a lot of fake gold and a ruined social life. Well OK Themeforest can also ruin your social life of course but then we just spent the gold on new friends and women.

    • Kriesi on the 25th August

      lol ;D

    • Christopher on the 25th August

      Of course! That’s the whole idea.. Earning badges is just insanely addictive. Not to mention the rates that obviously get addictive as you earn more cash!

    • matt on the 26th August

      Kriesi,

      You could mentor other authors. Or maybe write tutorials on our own site and make it pay with ads.

      Great work btw.

    • Brandon on the 26th August

      I’m with Kriesi! It’d be awesome to see some “uber benefits” for those of us who pioneered the way to the upper echelons of the old tiered system. Ideas:

      *Better exposure or the ability to gain/use points to briefly promote an item.
      *Ad Spots on the tuts+ network (or reduced rates).
      *A few extra percentage points.
      *Tiered flatrate bonus system for some of the mega milestones ($150k, $200k, $250k, etc.)
      *New badges are always fun.

      Either way, this is awesome news for the vast number of authors out there!

  85. ZAM on the 25th August

    That is truly, truly a double-exciting announcement.

    Keep Rocking Guys.

  86. Boltblue Media on the 25th August

    New author here – so thats great news!!

  87. zefs on the 25th August

    That’s great, thank you envato!

  88. marpies on the 25th August

    Thanks guys, looking forward to new marketplace!

  89. dan on the 25th August

    About time envato stopped being greedy. The old rates were ridiculous.

    • Pixelcloth on the 25th August

      don’t be silly.

    • Jason on the 1st September

      Its true, the old rates were a bit in Envatos favor and low.

  90. flyer templates on the 25th August

    This is indeed a motivating move. This is more fair for the authors. I think there will be more authors coming to the marketplaces, as the rates are good. And the 70 percent rate is easier to get to.

    Great news !

  91. speed730 on the 25th August

    thanks, this will give us a power to work more with you guys :)

  92. Cristian Giordano on the 25th August

    This is great news. I always thought it was highly unachievable to gross sales in excess of $300k.

    Congrats on the latest birthday, keep up the great work.

  93. Phillip on the 25th August

    Great news, thanks guys!

  94. Mocarg on the 25th August

    YEAH! 51% for me at the end of next month! :D

  95. sheena on the 25th August

    Legends as always! :)

  96. michaelhejja on the 25th August

    Wow, great job guys! I’ll instantly hop to 70% when it kicks in!!

  97. MaestroX on the 25th August

    Absolutely fantastic! A big thank you to Envato and the team from me!

  98. Jonathan Patterson on the 25th August

    Yesss! This is tweetable.

  99. inlifethrill on the 25th August

    Does this mean that my current rate will be re-calculated based on the total value of sales I’ve made on the Envato Marketplaces so far or these rates will appy to new users only!? Hats off if the current rate is re-calculated..

    Kind regards,
    inlife

    • Justin Scheetz on the 25th August

      That’s TOTALLY what it means. I’m jumping from 53% to 64% in September, woo!

      :)

    • Mark Dijkstra on the 25th August

      Same here. Pretty sweet and that without any sales ;) its like magic :P

  110. Boba on the 25th August

    Just in time :) I am working on my first HTML template and WordPress theme that’s going to be on ThemeForest. I do have a couple of themes and templates on themeforest that i developed for few authors, so i guess it’s time for me to earn more from my work :)

    I remember back then when i first found out about ThemeForest, looong time ago, the rates ware starting from 30%.

    Now it starts from 50% and all you need is 75K, haha awesome, can’t wait to finish up my items.

  111. scottrockers on the 25th August

    Great News, thanks Envato!

  112. Djordje Pivnicki on the 25th August

  113. EAMejia on the 25th August

  114. Alkis on the 25th August

    Woohooooo!Thanks! “I’m So Excited; And I Just Can’t Hide It!…”
    Risky decision I guess (massive financial consequences as you mentioned) but all the authors will majorly appreciate this move.
    Keep it up good hearted people of Envato!

  115. A reader on the 25th August

    Wait, did Envato just bought snipplr? Never knew this before…

    Can anyone clear it up?

  146. Yogi on the 27th August

    Any chance you guys will allow authors and affiliates to withdraw their earnings more than once a month? Twice a month will be great :)

  161. guncel blog on the 29th August

    thank you all

  162. Wordpress Themes on the 29th August

    Fantastic move Envato! Definitely will help push more themes,codes, plugins to the marketplace! I think it was too low before, as we make the product, and you sell it, so a 50/50 split is so much more fair!

  163. Djordje Pivnicki on the 29th August

    WOOOHOOOOO!

  164. Legues on the 30th August

    Just amazing!!!! Good news for all the exclusive authors!!! OH YEAHHHHHH!!! :)

  169. Youngstream on the 1st September

    Awesome, that’s some good news!
    I might try and submit a theme again…

  170. Mike on the 2nd September

    Awesome news, thanks everybody at Envato.

  171. Sandip Ganguli on the 2nd September

    This is so awesome and really feels great that staffs of Envato cares so much for all of their authors. :) Thank You A!!

    Till I joined Envato and started selling, I genuinely knew that this is the only ONE BEST marketplace anyone could ever have throughout the internet for selling their own digital contents.

    Thanks to all the Envato staff members, reviewers and all the authors as well (me too, hehe.) for making all this possible as on today, with their great management, great reviews and amazing digital contents.

    Kind Regards

  176. Hotcomputers on the 3rd September

    In my account i see the same 40 % rate.

    Your current rate: 40 %

    It is a bug or this baseline s applied only for some designers.

    Thanks

  181. ricosushi on the 13th September

    Great ill get an instant 8% extra :D

    Good news

  182. Chad Thompson on the 14th September

    OK so can you help me understand because this post is a little bit unclear: Does the $75,000 threshold reset itself each year, OR is is once you reach $70,000 in sales you are set at the 70% commission rate forever…

    • Drew on the 14th September

      Hi Chad,

      Commission rates do *not* reset, so once you’re there, you won’t go down! :)

  183. Satya on the 15th September

    Very good news

    I will work more for this marketplace

    Thanks a lot

  184. OhmLab on the 18th September

  192. sacas on the 26th September

    Great news. Now we talking…This is the best news i get this month:-p

  193. FlashSpec on the 26th September

    Is this only for new members?

    • Adrian Try on the 26th September

      Hi FlashSpec. The new rates are for all authors – new and old and in between.

  194. ram on the 29th September

    I am exciting to see new rates how my sales make me happy :)

  195. Jim on the 29th September

    Did the managers ever think to tie payouts to supporting authors only?

    By the look of the site, more than a few authors don’t support their work – that is they ignore questions, don’t follow up after a few months and generally don’t support their work. This is a big turnoff to buyers. Instead of rewarding these authors you should penalize them.

    Of course there are good authors who are very responsive, but there are a few in your list above who pass the grade.

    Just a suggestion.

  196. Chad Thompson on the 29th September

    Yes I had this problem when I purchased my second theme from Theme Forest. Tons of glitches and the author was AWOL. He made his money and then quite responding to his clients requests for help. Themeforest don’t require authors to provide support… theme forest what if you provided a gateway that would allow authors to CHARGE a small fee for support? That would give the deadbeat authors some incentive to stay around and answer questions after their theme comes out. Is this the right place to post suggestions?

  197. diegomonzon on the 30th September

    12 hours to go!!!!

  198. Chad Thompson on the 30th September
