We’re just sending you a courtesy e-mail to let you know that the funds you deposited into your Envato Marketplace account some time ago are about to expire.
You have $8.00 left to spend by August 19, 2011. Did you know you can spend your deposit on any of Envato’s marketplaces – (ActiveDen , AudioJungle , ThemeForest , VideoHive , GraphicRiver , 3DOcean , CodeCanyon , Tuts+ Marketplace , and PhotoDune )?“
Envato expires cash deposits automatically after one year as a small percentage of users leave money in their account for long periods of time and cannot be contacted. Unfortunately Envato cannot be responsible for holding cash for indefinite periods. That being said, we are very happy to extend your balance if you contact us.
If you wish to extend your cash balance for six months, please sign in and visit http://activeden.net/user/maxbeatty/extend_deposits
Alternatively, by making a new deposit of any amount to your Marketplace account, you will automatically extend the validity of all funds in your account by 12 months.
The Envato Team
Could you imagine PayPal or any other marketplace who holds funds for someone to automatically claim them after a certain period of time? At the time, they required I deposit certain chunks of cash into my account ($10, $20, $100, etc.) so I would purposely have a leftover balance. Now, since I haven’t found anything worth buying in a year, they are stealing my money. I extended my deadline six months, but that’s besides the point. There’s a prominent “deposit” button but no option to withdraw.
