I keep meaning to post about this, and there is method in the madness.

codecanyon and graphic river for example, have many items sub $10.00 and ok paypal will fire a transaction fee for a deposit made and items bought…

But surely, it makes sense and would increase sales if the min. deposit fee was set at $10.00 instead of $20.00

Perhaps you guys could trial it, I don’t know.. but either way, surely it would be worth trying.

Good point, I wonder why they chose $20 as the minimum.

I would presume this is a strategic accounting vs cost concept. But i personally think , $10 trial would prove greater deposits and purchases.

I see the odd complaint that one has to deposit $20 to buy something for $1 but they’re few and far between and if it aint broke…

-1. It would most likely decrease sales and affiliates would make less money (=fewer referrals).

Not sure on your logic there.

You posted from themeforest , if you read my initial post I specifically mention Graphic River and Codecanyon

I like $6 ref cuts from $20 deposits, so I will say no :P

I hate getting ref cuts from $6 flyers, it’s far too small for a one-time cut. Allowing for $10 deposits would simply make this worse, at least as an affiliate.
