What you are selling to the Buyers is not the item itself, but the “License to use” that item on the terms of the license. The license is between you, Author, and the Buyer.
Support is relevant for some types of items like WebThemes. You may choose if you will support some of your items or not. If you choose to support your item, it will be shown on your item page alongside with support period and terms. Buyers can choose to purchase support extensions on these terms. (Please see Item Support Policy to understand what is included in support)
You, as the Author of the item, determine the Item price for your items.
You must make your pricing decisions independently, and discussing pricing decisions with other authors is not allowed.
