Your conversion rate is really going to depend on how well targeted your referral links are. If you place your links in places where they are highly relevant (and link to quality products), you’ll get a lot of conversions
My conversion rate tends to hover around 10%

butlerm saidThanks 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)?
it is not unique. If i click my own link 10 times it will show up as more 10 click throughs
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..
