I am new to Envato Elements

Anyone help me to understand what is content bonus

Maximum How much we can earn?

Hey @WordPressRiver you can read all the details about content bonus here: https://help.author.envato.com/hc/en-us/articles/360029938391-Understanding-the-Envato-Elements-Content-Bonus-Program

But in short it’s a bonus paid out monthly, to authors that meet it’s criteria - for example to upload 3 new projects to elements within 90 days.

The bonus is proportional to your elements revenue, and it’s usually is 35-41% of your item downloads revenue. So if you earn $1000 you can expect to get $350-410 bonus.

But then there’s Australia’s withholding tax… which is like 30%… so all your bonus usually goes to this tax, unless your country has a better agreement with Austria in regards to royalties withholding %.

There’s someone making 15k on elements apparently from some old data, so that’s your vague how much you can earn :smiley:

  1. Bonus last months is more like 35%
  2. Max withholding Tax is 30%

For clearance future confusion with numbers :wink:

Then it’s not content bonus it’s Bonus for Australia

It depends on country where you live in. If your country has Tax Treaty with Australia then Tax can be 5-15%.
Here is a list: https://help.author.envato.com/hc/en-us/articles/360000424886-Why-are-withholding-taxes-different-between-Envato-Elements-and-Envato-Market-

According to your country badge tax will be 15% for you
