The Envato Marketplaces offer two options to purchase files; Buy Now for convenient one-off purchases, and Prepaid Credits for multiple purchases to save you money. All purchases are made in U.S. Dollars. All major credits cards are accepted via Paypal and Moneybookers.
Why choose Prepaid Credit?
By choosing the prepaid credit option you avoid the $2.00 surcharge that applies to Buy Now purchases. Prepaid credits can be used to purchase items on any of our Marketplaces, and are accepted through both Paypal and Moneybookers.
To prepay you can either click Make a Deposit in your user drop-down, or click to purchase an item you wish to buy and choose Buy with Prepaid Credit. You can then deposit a minimum of $20 to your account and use it to purchase any files across all the Marketplaces. For more help with the process of purchasing items, see The Complete Guide to Purchasing Items.
Note: Most deposit transactions will automatically appear in your marketplace account but bank transfers or e-checks sometimes take 3-5 days to process.
Why choose Buy Now?
If you do not wish to deposit prepaid credits into your account, we provide the option of making a single direct purchase of a file with Buy Now. If you want to purchase an item without depositing, all you need to do is select the item you wish to purchase, click Purchase, and select Buy Now. You will then be directed to PayPal to make your payment via either PayPal account or credit/debit card. Buy Now purchases incur a $2.00 surcharge.
