Just bought my first ever template here and I noticed this:
Has this “Get Hosting” button always been here?
it doesn’t really sit well with me
This is new for what i know, and i tought that Envato hosts there stuff at Mediatemple
I dont see this in my download section…. I dont hope that this is a way to advertise here on TF(i dont like ads on a site like this)
There is an affiliate link associated with the button, so Envato must get a commission if a user buys hosting.
$97 commission per signup
Really? Well thats a bad move!! I dont hope to see this AD in my stuff!
It’s not only 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!
Imo, this is seriously uncool!
Just removed it via a greasemonkey script, but Envato come on, Don’t be greedy!!!
Why is this so bad? Envato is trying to make money – just like everyone else.
