    I dunno if it's possible but it could be nice to see what are the most used keywords in A.S., to know what people is looking for.

    well, i fix this problem using another web browser ... And what a shame !!!! i was told by email about 10 days ago i had about 3 sales of my skeleton knight. And here i don't see any revenue for this !!!! my asset has been erased from the database about 10 days ago when i wanted to raise its price ( just a description update !!! ) Here you've got my money !!! well 3 x 25 dollars, maybe there were others who bought it before the problem ... ( before i wanted to raise the price ). I consider myself being stolen by the asset store !!! where are my revenue !!! did it disappear the same as my asset ???!!!!! There are about 3 persons in the place who bought this feature, you've got 100% of this revenue !!!! and the purchaser 's got his asset !!! WHERE IS MY MONEY !!!! ???? A SHAME !!!!!!!!!!

    @ Rosor lolo calm down man, I'm not an unity teamate but just calm yourself, there is maybe just a bug or something like. I saw you can choose month you want see on the publisher administrator, but for me it's locked at Mars, maybe your sale were in febuary that can explain why you see 0. Anyway I don't think insulting Unity team is a good thing, just e-mail them and explain your problem with calm, after all this tool just came, it can have some bugs.

    @draad : i already see the mounth you can choose and i'm not locked to march, others mentionned they had sales appearing in february. I know it's just for some money ... But if there are others like me ( and that have much more sales , well hope for them ) what happen to them too ???? I already sent an email to the asset store, i hope there are some informations about that that have not been wiped / erased during a bug or i don't know .... But here, i calmed down .... Lol hope it'll help others who may have encountered the same problem.... ( well, i know nothing help when you're a bit angry ....)

    Hi Rosor, looks like it was just a database problem-- we'll get you set up! We're in the middle of the very busy San Francisco Game Developer's Conference, which is taking up a lot of our time, so we're a bit slower than usual to reply. But don't worry, you'll be paid and we'll update the database with your skeleton knight.

    Looks like i might be having the same issue as rosor, but I'm not 100% on whether I've made a single sale or not in the past week.
    Buy Rainscape! More features are coming next week!

    the same for me. That's why i installed chrome only in purpose to check my account. I first thought it was because of a window 7 protection ... but after tweaking interenet explorer options i decided to test with another browser.

    I just noticed a new "Payout" option:

    "Paypal (FREE transactions, No minimum transfer, Monthly transfers)"

    (Bold is not mine either!)

    Awesome!!


    Has anyone used Paypal to receive payouts yet? I am in the process of opening a personal account and I am hoping I can receive these transfers for free.


    EDIT: Ummm... I think this is new, so when they announce it, act REALLY surprised...'k? :D

    Great news about the monthly paypal payment option!

    I have a couple feature requests for the asset store publisher backend:
    - ability to notify users of new updates (maybe something similar to App Store?)
    - an option for users to be contacted by email if they wish to
    - allow top selling packages to have their own sub-section on the official unity forums. This would be extremely handy for support and announcements, and convenient for users too.
    - allow people to see package reviews from the website version of the asset store
    - a graph or log of sells on a day-to-day basis

    It would be nice to be able to see where an asset is in the queue to be reviewed. Perhaps it can be added to the pending tab?

    Regards,

    Hi~ Caitlyn.

    I'm in China. I try to connect to 'http://assetstore.unity3d.com'. But, I cannot open that page.

    I already try to do this many another place...

    Can you tell me why I cannot open that page in China??? Is it blocked in China? or exists any other reasons???

    Thanks...

    I wonder if it would be possible for Unity's Asset Store team to add some sort of monthly graph of purchases/downloads for assets? It would be nice to see how the growth of sales is between months and so forth.

    Hi there Yannic,

    It is indeed our policy to explain when packages are declined. Sorry, this must have fallen through the cracks. Would you email me directly, caitlyn@unity3d.com, with the name of the package?

    Caitlyn - really great work on the asset store, many thanks for leading this! :) I enjoy watching the sales come in on my Ski Game Starter Kit - more addictive than coffee! :) Just a quick question... how often do you update sales? I see my report only goes to Feb 24th. Thanks.

    Same here. I've been getting one sale per day for almost a year now, but now 23th - 28th was all zero. I got one sale today (29th). I think the store was down quite a bit on that time period, which could explain it.

    Howdy guys,

    Hmm... I'm not aware of any significant downtime of the store at that time, I think it might have just been a slow week for a few of you, although we did perform some updates to the back-end which ~might~ have had some impact. One of our head engineers will be having a look to see (and should be able to provide you with more precise info on the sales log update frequency).

    Cheers

    Thanks for the reply Caitlin. The strange thing is that the report shows February ends on the 24th, vs the 29th - so given 3 of us had the same issue (or noticed it)... I'm guessing it's a backend issue... just sayin. :)

    The "last" column refers to the date you last had a sale, not the end of the month.

    I just got a bit worried since you guys seemed to have some issues/updates, there were some downtime and at suddenly I got no sales. Slow week is still the most likely explanation.

    Sales in the Asset Store have in overall been pretty consistent for the last couple of weeks. The updates Caitlyn refers to have only impacted publishing packages to the Asset Store. It has not impacted the ability to buy packages.

    You might just have had a couple of slow days. Keep in mind that the novelty of new packages often wears off, and sales will probably be higher for packages featured on the front page or in the hit lists. With a single (or double) digit number of sales the predictability of future sales is almost impossible.
