    To be fair the “Popular & Premium” WordPress themes & Plugins, are in fact, neither popular, nor premium.

    Kids, you’re not missing much. I’m staying locked in at the $19/mo rate.

      TOTALLY AGREE! I saw some of the plugins and they look lame. If the support or lack therefore is anything on these themes like the PS actions that are recycled from several years ago, you will be stuck with broken and useless product after a couple of updates from WordPress. They don’t support anything and the developers get paid to push product not keep it up. When u pay annually they get ur money for a year up front. Just like other subscription apps do amd then they don’t update but they don’t care cause they already paid a year in advance. Lousy service.

      Hey,

      It would be nice if you wrote a blog article about it with some more details, I would be eager to read it.

        Hi,

        Maybe, one day will post a deep analysis on that. But for now, we’re leaving Envato. It has become a place for freelancers and asian developers for whom $1,000 per month is a big deal.

        WordPress on Envato Elements is the only way for Envato to stabilize the trend towards declining incomes for some time.

    I’m having trouble understanding the pricing problem. .com’s pricing is annual for buffet-style themes, as well. It does not make sense to allow a $19 monthly subscription and then have a customer download every single theme and plugin and cancel. Envato or not, yearly subs for all-you-can-eat downloads seems fair.

    Thanks for keeping us with the update. It not good to hold monthly subscribers.

    Interesting debate, it would make sense to give monthly users access as they would keeping paying for updates(if that happens).
