You all know about giveaways, either tweet or follow or comment to win. So i’m wondering if we’re allowed to make or give our items for giveaways?

The thread is a year old but I think emailing support directly might be better than just assuming no.

What if you just purchased a copy (through a secondary account) and then gave that file away for free? It’s still a file purchased from Themeforest, so from Envato’s point of view that would seem equivalent.

The ability to give away/transfer “credits” from your balance to another user’s account would be a cool feature. Then you could basically refer the winner to Themeforest and give them credits toward a purchase as a prize.

Edit: I guess Mark’s answer posted by OrganicBeeMedia covers both of those :)
