This guide is designed to assist with questions regarding your statement and Envato documents.
Your statement will provide you with your total sales (the value of all sales you’ve made to buyers), your total expenses to Envato (the value of all author, SWIFT and/or Skrill fees), and details of any other transactions your account may have registered such as referral earnings and purchases.
Skrill is no longer available as a withdrawal method, but Skrill fees may appear on your statement for withdrawals requested prior to 31st August, 2017.
This article will help you to Download Statement Data as CSV.
Sales will appear on your statement as separate line items. Bundled Item Support and any purchased support extensions will appear as separate line items (if applicable).
Items that do not come with support will appear on your statement in two lines:
Items that come bundled with 6 months of support will appear as four lines:
- Item price
- Author fee for the item
- Price of included support component
- Author fee for included support component
If the customer purchases a support upgrade (or extension), you will see an additional two line items on your statement:
- Price of extended support
- Author fee for extended support
The author fee statement lines show the amount you have paid Envato as an author fee. There are separate lines for author fees relating to sales (Author Fee for sale) and item support (Author Fee for included/extended support).
You can access the invoice that was issued to the buyer for the purchase of an item by clicking the invoice number on your Statement.
