Hi, we're Envato. We've met before over at
Envato Market Terms. It's good to meet you
again and we're really glad you're keen on referring our websites to
Imagine earning a passive income simply by referring new users to any of
our Envato Market sites. When a new user clicks your referral link, signs
up for an account and purchases an item (or buys Envato credits) via any of
the Envato Market sites, you will receive a percentage of that person's first
purchase of Envato Credits or first purchase of an item. If that sounds like
something you want to do, read on to find out how it all works.
The fact that you're even here reading this means you've accepted
our Envato Market Terms. These additional
terms cover our Affiliate Program and are an extra part of the
Envato Market Terms that apply specifically to Envato members who
refer new users to any of our Envato Market sites.
When we say 'you' in these Affiliate Program Terms
we are referring to you, the affiliate. All other words defined or
explained in the Envato Market Terms have
the same meaning here. If there's any inconsistency between what we
say in these Affiliate Program terms and what is in the Envato Market
Terms, what we say in these Affiliate Program terms prevail.
Read on for details about your responsibilities, how it all works and
the process of earning a referral income with us.
Becoming an Affiliate
All members can act as affiliates by following the steps outlined in these
terms. Just remember that if you want to actively participate in the Affiliate
Program there are few things you'll need to keep in mind which are explained
How it works
Refer new users to any of the Envato Market sites and you'll receive a percentage
of their first purchase of Envato Credits or first purchase of an item!
Referral code: Every member automatically has a referral
code which is generated using your username. This referral code is available
on the referral page.
Simply paste a link or image button on your site using that code. If a new user
clicks your referrer link and proceeds to sign up an account and purchase an item
or Envato Credits via any of the Envato Market sites, you will receive a percentage
of that person's first purchase of Envato Credits or first purchase of an item.
Referral program percentage: The earnings you will get for
successfully participating in the Affiliate Program is set out on the
More details: Here are a few important points about how it works:
need to be using cookies for us to track them.
If a person doesn't allow cookies or clears their cookies then we can't
track them so can't pay earnings on that person's activity.
If a person clicks on your referral link and then later they click on
someone else's, yours is the one that counts.
A user referred via your referral link must not be related to you or
your business or company.
If a person clicks a link, they have three months before the cookie
expires. If they sign-up and make a purchase within that time, we will
pay your Affiliate Program earnings. After 3 months, no Affiliate Program
Earnings appear in your members' statement (find out about withdrawing
earnings in the next section).
If a user has visited one of the Envato Market sites before or has an existing
account with us and then clicks a referral link, it doesn't count.
Linking to Envato Market from within any of the Envato Market sites or from any
domain controlled by Envato in order to gain referrals is not allowed.
This includes bouncing links off other domains in order to add a
Above all, use of the Affiliate Program is subject to a fair use policy
which gives Envato the right to review each and every referral.

How do payments of referral income work
These sections explain how earning an income through our Affiliate Program
works and important information about payments to your account, and
withdrawals and deductions from your account. Take a close look!
We will pay your Affiliate Program earnings from the Affiliate
Program in line with the payment rates into your members' statement. In
order for us to do this, you authorise us to collect payments for your new
user referrals, to credit your members' statement with your earnings, and to
distribute your earnings to you.
To avoid any confusion, only your earnings from referrals will be payable to
you. Envato credits that were converted from monies you deposit as a buyer
are not able to be withdrawn or refunded.
Thresholds: We'll make payments of your earnings
based on certain minimum threshold amounts. The details of how much you need
to have in your Envato Market account before we can pay you is set out in our
Author Guide page.
Earnings payment timing and methods:
You ask us to hold the balance of your earnings until you request a
payment. Unless we decide to pay you your earnings, we will continue to
hold your earnings until we receive a request for withdrawal.
When we get a request for payment, we will pay you your earnings at the
next payment of earnings pay cycle.
You must provide us with the correct details and payment method when you
want to receive your earnings.
You must bear all expenses incurred by us in paying monies to you.
Payment errors: We will continue to hold your earnings if we're not
able to pay your earnings to you for whatever reason, including if:
we do not have the correct payment details;
we can't contact you using the contact details that you have supplied;
you have not made a request for payment; or
you are asking for payment to be made to a person, or to an
institution that we're prohibited from making payments to at law or
where there are limitations in the banking systems;
Currency conversions: Whenever we make a payment to
you as an affiliate, you are responsible for all costs of converting the
amount of the payment from US dollars into your preferred currency. Your
financial institution does the currency conversion and may charge you
additional fees (we don't control either the conversion rates or your
financial institution's fees).
Taxes. You are responsible for paying all fees and taxes
associated withyour referrals and referral payments we make to you wherever
levied. Despite this, if required by law, we may deduct or withhold taxes
(including withholding tax) in connection with your being an affiliate.
If so, we will give you relevant documentation that's required by law
about the deduction or withholding (like documentation allowing you to
access rebates or credits, or to manage your tax affairs).
Refunds and chargebacks: If a transaction on one of the Envato Market sites
directly relating to your Affiliate Program earnings is subject
to a refund or chargeback, we can at our discretion, withhold that portion
of your Affiliate Program earnings.
Things you should avoid
You may not refer users by:
confusing them (or potentially confusing them) about whether your
site is operated or endorsed by us (for example, by copying design
elements from our site);
linking from any of the Envato Market sites or from any domain
controlled by Envato in order to gain referrals. This includes bouncing
links off other domains in order to add a referral;
any use of Envato brands, trademarks and intellectual property,
other than banner and logos Envato makes available for affiliates (see
the referral page;
purchasing a domain name, search engine keyword or pay-per-click
advertisement that use any Envato trademarks or variations and
copying item descriptions (unless you raise a
support ticket and get consent from us);
sending unsolicited email or other messaging that in any way may
doing anything that would amount to a breach of any laws including,
but not limited to, privacy, intellectual property and spam;
doing anything that might be confusing, misleading or deceptive to
users (eg referring from a site that might be confusing to users about
whether it is an Envato site);
doing anything that is directly or indirectly in contravention of
these Affiliate Program terms, the Envato Market Terms, or any direction
given to you by us; or
engaging in any conduct that does not meet our standards of ‘fair
play' at our discretion including things like fraud, confusing the new user,
or providing a link designed to mislead the customer.
We reserve the right to decide whether or not your use of the Affiliate
Program complies with any applicable laws and/or these Affiliate Program
terms or the Envato Market Terms. If we decide that your participation in
the Affiliate Program does not comply, we can based on our reasonable
discretion withhold your earnings and may disable your account.
We will make the final decision about whether or not your use of the
Affiliate Program is in breach of any applicable laws or these Affiliate
Program Terms (acting reasonably, of course).
