@ILoveThemeforest It seems you are new here! do you know how this marketplaces works?
An affiliate program that pays 30% for not doing anything is just perfect. You need to remember that authors that work hard on developing items “only” get paid 50-70%.
However I do agree that getting a lower percentage, but then a residual income from customer purchases would be much more interesting.

I wouldn’t go as far as calling it ‘not doing anything’. I know several users who turn quite a profit from referal earnings, and they definitely do not sit idly by. There’s more to advertising than just publishing ads
So far I’ve referred about 6’000 thousands people. Of these, 12 registered, and 3 bought something. Total earned: 14$.
Percentage is not the issue for us. Utter, complete and total lack of any referral statistics is. No! The numbers we have at the moment are not statistics. That’s just …. some numbers to look at. The only way anyone can track multiple campaigns is to have multiple Envato accounts because that’s the only way to separate campaigns and track individual ROIs. But even with that stats offered here are shamefully trivial.
I didn’t see any improvements for that on this year’s to-do list
IMO , thirty percent is fine. What Envato might think about doing is having a sort of “promotion” week every year (do they already do this? Have they done this?) where they raise the referral rate a bit higher to entice people to promote the site. maybe they lose out on a lot of money that week, but maybe the site gains a lot of new customers? Might be worth trying if they haven’t tried it already?
