Hi, I have a problem.

I have

284 Clickthroughs 4 Registered Members 8 Deposits $30.00

If the minimum deposit is $20, 8 X 20 X 50 % should be $80. Am I right? Or the total deposits are including second deposit?

Hey kailoon,

I thought this same exact thing, lol. It’s because of the $25,000 giveaway they did. The $10 deposits they made didn’t count but still shows as a deposit.

Definitely looks like the math is off, if all their initial deposits totaled $20 a piece you should be looking at $40 but lets say 4 of them signed up and only 3 of them made the minimum deposit of $20 and the fourth person got the free $10 then the $30 you received would be correct

1 – $20
2 – $20
3 – $20
4 – $10 (free, doesnt count)

Total: $60 less the free $10 deposit
50% commission: $30

sounds like a problem off an old algebra test back in the day lol

I would think too that you only get paid commission off the initial deposit

@Kailoon

Check your statement under the “statement” tab in your account panel. See what it says for these 8 deposits. If it says that you got 0 for some of them than it is likely because of the $25,000 giveaway that Envato just did. Then you wouldn’t get any referral earnings at all because that would be considered their first deposit and you don’t make 50% of “free money.” Envato “gave” away $25,000 to the community but they are guaranteed roughly 60-65% of it back because most authors on TF aren’t making more than 35-38%. So essentially they only gave away about $10,000. Sorry I’m getting off topic but I hope the rest of it makes sense?
