    Home Page:
    Create a "Author Account" at Themeforest.

    Once your account verified you can sell your themes.

    "Themeforest" is the right place to get more sales.

    I am familiar with Themeforest but i heard they have very strict policy for publishing themes. Another thing is that author gets only 50% if he does not have many sales.

    Consider that it it's better to have 50% of something than 100% of well, not much. It's not like it's gonna cost you more time to sell more items, actually it's the opposite (you will do less marketing and have more sales, minus support, but I don't think you are obligated to support the item). Just give it a try. To get 50% you have to sell it exclusively there. You don't have to sell it there forever, you can drop it once you earn some money and recognition and start selling on your own. Just my 2 cents.
    Good luck.
