I know that the staff sets the price for all items, I took the author quiz :) But when an author disagrees with the price set for an item, is there a way to debate it and possibly get it changed with some seriously good debating skills and a little positive attitude?

I’ve had a few prices for my items changed after giving a few valid points through a support ticket. I think if you feel the price should increase then just stae why through a support ticket. More thatn often they will accept your reason for change.

Yes, you can either contact support or edit the item with a message to the reviewer.

You can do that but bear in mind that if all authors should be debating over prices it will be very controversial and lots of problems might arise which is against authors’ agreement with Envato.

Yes, sometimes some items may be under-priced but in order to maintain that initial marketplace quiz, one has to accept any price given to his/her item.

Good luck.

Yes I completely agree with you, and accept the price they give me. But also feel some things can be debated, I have 37 items and have never had to debate, I think that qualifies for once in a awhile.

Thanks!

Not unless you have a strong point. If you feel strongly about your items price increase then go for it. I usually compare my own item pricing to other items that are selling on the market which have a higher price tag than mine and their quality. If you feel that your item deserves an increase then go for it! It’s not going against the rules of anyting otherwise they wouldn’t have changed mine.

On one of my files the price went up automatically after 2 sales…I think reviewers do give resonable prices :D

Also don’t forget there are min/max prices for item categories and Envato are constantly monitoring and researching the best possible price range for your items.

Based on my own opinion, prices are not really important because you will eventually make a lot of money and cover up through sales of that item as long as ‘the quality is high and also very affordable and highly needed by freelancers’. ‘The higher the price the lower the sales’ but ‘the cheaper the price the higher the sales’. This is a simple business strategy. There are other marketplaces online (I won’t mention the names) that are still striving for potential buyers but here, whether you advertise or not, you will still be having sales.

I don’t usually involve myself with any forum argument but I am adding this as a piece of advice as my fellow author.
