Usually when someone new buy item through referal link it’s easyly tracked what item assosiated with such puchase since it has exactly the same date and time in the statement.

For example this is how it was previously:
As you can see everything is correct, somebody purchased item from me for $5+2 = $7 and I got 30% refferal cut from it

And here is how it looks from recent refferal cut:


Looks as a wrong calculation, since if someone deposits, it’s $20 minimum otherwise customer can’t buy item for $6 without additional $2 so I shall get $8 sale and 2.4 as refferal cut.

Clearly looks like a bug in the system!

Of course there is a tiny chance that someone registered to Videohive through my reflink then bought item from someone else for $4 and exactly the same second other customer with the existing deposit purchased item from me. But taking into consideration everage purchases from me as 1 per 3 hour this chance is lower then 1/10800. :-)

P.S
Staff reply requested.

Heya :) Your best option is to open a Support ticket so that they can forward it to the proper affiliate people. I’m no good at math anyway :D

Support request submitted 19639.

Meanwhile I recommend to unhide my thread, it’s moved from http://videohive.net/forums/topic/all-marketplaces/47 to some hiden tab, it say it’s in “Home > Forums > Site Feedback” but when I click into Site Feedback it’s not here. :-(

My thread currently at http://videohive.net/forums/topic/site-feedback/30
While publicly accesible Site Feedback is here http://videohive.net/forums/topic/site-feedback/36

If it’s serious issue then you’d like to have other authors to check and be aware rather then hide it from public. Hiding bug or something is always wrong strategy.

Maybe refered user purchase not so expensive item ( yours or from another author).

It can’t be other item from me since it’s not in my statement. As I wrote above there is a tiny chance of other item from other author purchase but statistically probability is too low – more chances of bug in earnings/referral counting software. :-) .

Hi Andrey, the difference you’ve identified relates to the A/B test Scott announced a couple of weeks ago here: http://themeforest.net/forums/thread/ongoing-purchase-page-ab-tests/136103. Hope you understand why we can’t go into further detail! Thanks :)

Hi Natalia,

No problem. I’m glad it’s A/B test not the bug. :-) Thank you!
