Not yet. they've been slowly introducing author driven pricing for other marketplaces over the past year (3DOcean, GraphicRiver, Themeforest etc) but not for Videohive yat. They'll probably implement it at some point this year though, although I could be wrong.

Hello friends.
Can not we still put our prices on videohive just like we do on Pond5?
I'd like to upload videos there, but I've seen video sales for $ 15.00.
Thanks for the info.

very interesting now.
Did I see that they get 55% of the sale.
We got 45%
Is this correct?
So I think of uploading videos there.
Thank you very much for your prompt reply.

The commission structure is quite complicated. There's a fixed buyers fee for video clips which is $3, which goes to Envato. There's then the normal author/agency split (they call the author fee), which is fixed if you're non-exclusive, and variable (based on how much you've sold) if you're exclusive.

The numbers you mentioned (55% author's fee) is for non-exclusive authors. So if you set the price of your video at $4... it's $3 for the buyers's fee, and $0.55 for the author fee, leaving you $0.45 or 11.25% of the total price. On the other hand, if you set your video to $100 then it's still $3 for the buyers's fee, and $53.35 for the author fee, leaving you $43.65 or 43.65% of the total price.

For exclusive authors, the author's fee goes as low as 12.5% if you've sold over $75K of content, so using the same example... a $4 video would give you $0.87 or 21.87% and a $100 video would give you $84.87 or 84.87%.

I can only assume the buyers fee/authors fee split is to put people off from pricing their items too low, and to reduce the exposure to Envato if everyone were to suddenly halve their prices overnight.

I just had a look to see if Videohive might be worthwhile uploading to.
They require you (for stock footage) to create your own: Preview file, watermark, thumbnails.

Are you F$%$% kidding me???

Does this mean that all the video preview, thumbnails BS will be a thing of the past?
