There is an affiliate link associated with the button, so Envato must get a commission if a user buys hosting. :(

what is stopping us putting an ad in the item description? Is that against the rules if we recommend a service for say hosting our product someone is looking to buy? If so I would love a stab at earning $97 per signup on hosting!

Why is this so bad? Envato is trying to make money – just like everyone else. :)
