We have some important news regarding the Tuts+ Marketplace. In one month’s time we’ll be closing its doors to focus more on our sister product, Tuts+ Premium. I’d like to personally thank the authors for their contribution and apologize that we will no longer be offering a marketplace for tutorials and ebooks.
The mission statement of Envato, the parent company of the Tuts+ Marketplace, is to help people earn and learn online. We are very committed to these two goals, and while the marketplace was in the right area for both, we believe that Tuts+ Premium, along with the free Tuts+ Network, give us a more effective way for us to achieve our learning goals. As such we plan to concentrate more of our marketing and investment on those two parts of the company.
If your content is not already a part of the Tuts+ Network, we’d love to invite you to submit your existing tutorials or write new ones. We pay authors up front for their content, regardless of whether the article is free or premium. If you’re interested, please take a look at the submission instructions (e.g. for Psdtuts+). We look forward to hearing from you.
Q. How do I submit content to the Tuts+ Network?
A. Go to the appropriate Tuts+ site (e.g. Psdtuts+) and click “Write for us.” That page will give you all the info you need to know to submit a tutorial. Please note that the standards for the Tuts+ Network are different from the Tuts+ Marketplace, so there is no guarantee that your tutorial will be accepted.
Q. Can I still get my earnings out after the closure?
A. Yes. As long as you have more than $50 in your account, just go to any of the other Envato Marketplaces (e.g. ThemeForest), sign in, and request your earnings as you normally would. If you have less than $50, we’ll get in contact with you to make sure you get your money.
Q: Will I still have access to my purchased files after the closure?
A: We strongly advise you to download your files immediately after you purchase them. That said, if for whatever reason you forget to download them before the Tuts+ Marketplace closes, you can contact support and they will provide you with your file.
Sorry again for the inconvenience and thanks so much for your understanding. Despite the closure of this marketplace, we hope you have success earning and learning on the Envato network for years to come.
