Hi guys. Is it allowed to use affiliate links on item description page. For example, my item works with MailChimp, AWeber, Mad Mimi, etc. Of course item description page contains list of supported e-mail marketing providers. Can I hyperlink items of this list with affiliate links?

No you can’t use affiliate links on your item pages. We don’t want a marketplace inside the Marketplaces :) Thanks!

I have seen descriptions with affiliate links to other services like Voicebunny, is this allowed?

No this wouldn’t be allowed either. If it is brought to the attention of Support they will need to be removed. Thanks!

Even if you added your affiliate link in the item description it will not be counted as a refer because once a user visit the page envato record the refer cookie to -1 and will not count any refer

it will only count it if the visitor visited the page for the first time from your ref

is about referral to different marketplaces than envato

is actually a good thing to add referrals with the envato referral program to your items in the item description. Sometime the item description is copy paste in the wild. those referrals links will go along and will become live and then you can make some money

yes is a shot in the dark bit I think it works :)

We are not allowed to provide affiliate links to plugins either? For example, you have a WordPress theme with WPML integration, you put a an affiliate link to WPML on your description page.
