Step 1: Sign In or Sign Up
In order to make a purchase, you need an Envato Market Account and to be logged in. If you have previously signed up, simply click Sign in with Envato Account at the top of the page. Otherwise go to the Envato Account Center and complete the form. Signing up only takes a minute and you'll be sent a verification email.
Creating an Envato Account automatically gives you member access to all Envato Market sites. You can contact authors, comments on items, and participate in the forums too.
Step 2: Find an Item You Wish to Purchase
There are lots of ways to find items — the most frequently used are the search field at the top of every page, and browsing from the categories button on the top left. Other ways to find items include the popular files page, featured files, and collections.
Once you've found an item that suits your needs, view the right-hand column and author's description for information about the item including what files are included, the price, and compatibility. You may also wish to read the comments left by other users in the area below the item details.
Step 3: Purchase an Item or Add to Cart
If you are only purchasing one item from Envato Market Select a license and click Buy Now. There are two payment options: Prepaid Credits or PayPal. Select the option that suits you, and complete the purchase. Purchases are available through credit/debit card (Select PayPal), PayPal, or Moneybookers.

If you need to purchase multiple items from the marketplaces click Add to Cart. After adding an item to your cart you’ll be given the option to Keep Browsing or Go to Checkout.
Add item to cart, then Go to Checkout
Once you’re ready to purchase your items click Go to Checkout or the Shopping Cart button at the top of the page. Review the items in your Shopping Cart and click Checkout to complete the purchase.

Step 4: Download Your Item(s)

Just hover over your username at the top of any Envato Market site, then click Downloads. There you should see a list of all the items you've bought. Click the Download button next to the item to download it.
