In the new design I’m making for my Portfolio I have added links to ThemeForest and GraphicRiver but they are of course links to my designs (when I do some uh oh) and NOT referral links.

Example: http://themeforest.net/user/RobbyDesigns

My question is : If someone hits that link, shys away from my work but goes on to buy something else, then why can’t Envato sort it out that I still get a referral bonus?

I’m sure I’m not the only one who links this way.

I’d be interested to hear your replies and views, thanks everyone.

because, you can just add ? ref = your username (remove the spaces) at the end of every URL to envato sites, and that’s what will happen exactly, you can even point it to someone else’s items if you’d like

:D

Cheers guys but that’s not what I was on about – what I want is a link that sends people to my designs on ThemeForest BUT also gets me some $ if the visitor joins Envato/Buys someone else’s design.

Actually, that is possible right now:

http://themeforest.net/user/RobbyDesigns/ ? ref = RobbyDesigns

@RobbyDesigns Just follow exactly BioXD said and you’ll get some referral commission if the user you refer drops money into their account. Keep in mind though that you only get commission on their first deposit of money into their account, not each time they buy something.
