There is a sale... I see many sellers increasing prices by 50% or 100% ...
.. or even more...
This being allowed is not good. I get that the site gets more money if prices get higher but having sellers cheating on customers is nothing good at all.
A sale should be a sale and sellers should not be allowed to increase prices during a sale. They could be allowed to further lower them if they want to please potential customers more but not the other way around.
so, what you are saying - its not a seller who should have control on his/hers prices. cg trader should decide how much models cost?
The real problem here is that too many merchants are UNDERpricing their own products, to begin with. So then when CGTrader launches a sitewide sale, they panic because the models they're normally selling for $2 (grossly underpriced) are suddenly worth $1, which after CGT's cut leaves them with about 60 cents for each model. I don't understand how anyone thinks they can make money in this business if they're making only $2 per sale anyway. You'd have to have 25 sales every single day to have any sustainable income from that. No one is making 25 sales every day unless you have thousands of models in your portfolio.
And the real problem behind that real problem is the lack of control over all of the thieves in the past, which infested the market and made those $2-$3 prices a common thing...
Things are obviously starting to change now... and judging by some forum posts, it seems that for some thieves the change is a bit hard to swallow...
I don't know how long it will take for the market to heal though :/
Good thing is, that when sale is over, you should see many prices drop by half. That's when smart people are shopping :]

The price of a product on the market is the sum of the cost and profit. The cost of the 3D model is not zero. When the Seller creates a price for his model, he calculates the time for its creation, etc. It is not entirely correct to discard the abstract 30 or 50% of the cost. Perhaps it is more correct to form the price as a sum of a constant denoting cost and profit. And discount the percentage of the profit?
