I’m sorry to ask this question, but I’ve tried to find out the answer from themeforest site and forum, but I still can’t find it. I want to know how exactly do we use our refferal link for the single item?

Generally I use my link themeforest.net ? ref=username for bringing people join this program. But I want to sell some wordpress themes in my website and use single refferal link per item url.

I saw some member of themeforest use link like this :

themeforest.net/item/wpshop/22102 ? ref=username

but in the forum I read some people say to use this link

themeforest.net/item/wpshop/22102 ? ref=_username

For note, I use space here in order to the link can be shown here. So, would you mind to tell me what’s exactly the refferal link for item sell page that works for earning? Thanks for the response

I used : themeforest.net/item/wpshop/22102/ ? ref=username – it gives me a lot of clickthrough’s

but I saw some authors used this : themeforest.net/item/wpshop/22102 ? ref=username

Maybe you can use both.

I’m pretty sure using after any URL from Theme Forest, Flash Den or any other Evato Market should do the trick. Obviously without spaces and all attached to the URL .

Add

? ref=USERNAME

to the end of any marketplace URL . (without the space)

it works with any link from any marketplace. I have some of those in different sites and they all count.

Does anyone know if you need to include the ending / slash to the main urls?

I know some urls’ end in /’s and some don’t.

like /

It would be nice if this was clear.

@nuvru: I don’t think you need the trailing slash because the links are powered by mod_rewrite (guessing here, but I don’t know of another way to do pretty links). The regular expression is probably something like:

/item/(\w+)/(\d+)/?

The /? makes the trailing slash optional.

Thanks.

I know why they are using this method of referral links… for the link juice or pagerank they receive. And yes, definitely mod-rewrite is involved for their nice static urls
