Guys you’re all missing the #1 issue with this referral program:

If you have visited one of the Envato Marketplaces before and then click a referral link, it doesn’t count

This is such a broad term that it outcomes all other problematic terms there. I absolutely agree there must be a life time commission or sort of it. As far as I know, Envato doesn’t encourage new buyers to deposit large amounts of money, and on top of that we need to have that user not to be in this ‘Black list’ of people who already visited before(this has nothing to do with the 90 days period btw, it only works one way – Envato way. once 90 days passed no user will ever be able to get credited for a referral from this user)? and it’s not like we have any kind of indication on the percentage of referrals we missed because of this term… Some very needed improvements in the program’s terms will be much appreciated.. thanks.

jremick & kingdog thanks for replying. Will this revision clean one marketplace from certain items (for example you will remove all computer generated images from PhotoDune) or will you keep a status quo where whatever was uploaded so far will stay and from now on XYZ (xyz being the new terms) ?

it is not unique. If i click my own link 10 times it will show up as more 10 click throughs
Thanks butlerm, if that’s the case it makes measuring and optimizing things on our end much more complex.. any chance Envato will be able to share this info with us (how many clicks are actually unique)?

Just read your comment again and have another puzzle… the terms of the affiliate program say:

If you have visited one of the Envato Marketplaces before and then click a referral link, it doesn’t count

Beside not understanding why this clause is written in first person (I believe we all want others to get referred rather than ourselves), it makes it very hard to understand the figures shown in the earnings table… and here’s the explanation:

I’ll take it as a fact that the deposits column is showing real referrals that earned a commission (i don’t have any yet so others can testify if that’s true, and i guess it is).

Now the other two are tricky, we already know that clicks are not unique..but how do we know how many of our refers are really counting and don’t fall into the ‘list of users who ever visited a marketplace’?

And how is this list populated? is it an IP list? cookie? it’s very unclear and I hope someone from the team can clarify this..

Posted a question regarding this issue almost a week ago(http://photodune.net/forums/thread/differences-between-graphicriver-photodune/59643).. I hope someone from the team can reply, I think it’s important for us authors to know what is the policy as we see a significant growing number of comp. generated graphics on PD now.. As a customer, I would expect Flags for instance to be sold on GraphicRiver as a whole package rather than one by one on PD..

Anyone here knows if ‘Clickthroughs’ measure means unique users that Envato counts as referrals?

As far as I understand they keep track of all ip’s ever visited the site and won’t count them as referred users so this could be varying the conversion rates…
