Hi! I was just curios about one detail… as far as I understand, you get a percentage of the first deposit someone makes, after following your referral link to Envato Marketplaces. How does that work now that the “buy now” option has been introduced? do you still get a percentage or something?

I was thinking that it would be nice to get a 1% (or any other amount) off of the first 10 items the referred client buys something with the “buy now” option… because come to think of it, new referrals are a source of income for Envato, which it wouldn’t get without the “publicity”... even if it’s not 20$ at once, it’s still someone who through “my” link (just hypothetically speaking) decides to come again and again and spend some money here.

I hope nobody posted anything related to this, and if they did, you have my sincere apologies, I’m just a total noob at searching forums. The apologies apply for the following as well :

it’s a stupid discussion idea it’s something nobody cares about it’s the most STUPID thing I heard before Christmas this year!!!

Best regards, CB

yep, having a third of people using buy now has really killed whatever was left of referrals.

How did you guys refer people? I’ve posting links up all over the place and still no one has signed up through my links. I have almost 200 click through’s in the past week but no referred members!

Welcome to the club :)

I’ve got 520 this month and nada…

Thing is, if a user has visited any Envato marketplace BEFORE clicking your link (no matter where he came from: direct, Google, etc), you don’t get anything. It’s written in the referral rules.

I’ve posted everywhere I can think of. Unless I bombard Twitter with tweets I cant think of anything else. I might email around my friends see if they want to join.
