  1. really upset about moving to author driven pricing, in the long run they can actually make less because of people not paying the high prices vs many sales with the lower pricing, before themes usally maxed out at 59 dollars, now you have 225$ themes.

    • Hi Chris,

      what is it that makes you upset?

      It is up to the theme authors to look for their ‘sweet spot’ when it comes down to pricing. If their pricing is too high, then the sales will go down automatically. I think there will always be more than enough themes in the ‘cheaper’ price range.
