What are exclusive and non-exclusive items?

When you sell an item via the Template Sell marketplace, the total purchase price is made up of what you get from the sales plus the Template Sell service fee. We’ve categorized all of the items primarily into two categories: Exclusive and Non-Exclusive items. It defines the amount/percentage of commission the author will receive from sales of their items.

1. Exclusive Items

An exclusive item is that specific item you sell ONLY on Template Sell market. It cannot be sold anywhere else. Our author sales commission for exclusive items is between 60%-80% of the item price. Commission for Exclusive items is based on the number of sales for each item. The more your products sold, the more commission you get, even 80% of the final price if an item is sold more than 5000 times.

2. Non-Exclusive Items

You can sell your Non-Exclusive items on multiple marketplaces besides Template Sell. Our author sales commission for non-exclusive items is 40% of the item price.

What does the customer expect from an author?

They have some expectations to the authors. An author should always keep it in mind and honor their clients. The customer expects some basic things from you, (the author).

Accurate Item Description

Be honest with the item description. Tell the audience actually what it is. What it can do and where they can use it. Customers read through an item details before making a purchase. If you don't provide the accurate information, they would be misguided.

Go In Details

Describe the item as much as seems to be reasonable. A potential buyer should get a clear idea about an item from its description. Remember, if you sell an item with obscure information, it may cause confusion and eventually lead to a refund request.

Mention Known Issues

Mention known shortcomings where applicable. Suppose, if your particular theme faces an issue with a specific plugin or a relevant technology, tell it in the item description. It will help users have a better experience.

How to write the changelog for theme updates?

Changelogs are very important to inform the visitors/potential customers about the latest improvements in your theme. While updating an item, you should write the theme changelogs in the ‘Changelog’ field.

So, under the hood, here we've used several classes to display changelog labels like 'New', 'Update' and 'Bug fix'. This will present your updated theme with more details on what's new about the item.
