Envato “Repeat Buyers” Affiliate Competition #3 is Launching Early with $20,000 Prize Money.

Affiliate Competition

What would help with this is to fix the issue I highlighted MONTHS ago that was confirmed to be a bug, but hasn’t been fixed: No twitter cards on Envato Market?

Ooooo returning buyers, that’s a good one.


Just some clarification, do we have to direct buyers that we have previous referred ourselves? Or just any previously referred buyer?

And does the buyer have to be a previously “referred” buyer, or can they just be second time buyers with no previous referral?

i.e. we just have to refer as many non-first time buyers as possible?

Any non first time buyer counts, regardless where their first referral came from (you/other affiliate, ppc, self refferral). So cast as large of a net as you can because everything counts! :slightly_smiling:

Excellent! I have an idea.

Do we actually get commissions from returning buyers now?

No commissions, this is just a competition to get return buyers back.

This is just a competition but I hope to gain some insight to possibly change that payout structure in the future. So compete hard and good luck to everyone!!


Me again. Is this based on “number of sales” or “monetary value of sales”?

Like would 1 wordpress theme referral beat 4 photodune referrals?


i hope not :smiley: would be pretty unfair if higher referral deposits count more than lower ones. so i guess 1 tf referral = 1 gr or pd referral!
it actually seems like photodune authors could rock this :smiley:

Number of return buyers, dollar amount is not taken into account in this competition!

Actually, authors are not eligible to receive prizes in this competition. This one is mainly focused towards the traditional affiliates.

ah my bad, i meant pd affiliates, but happy now to understood all requirements :slight_smile:

How does an affiliate know if he referred a returning buyer if there is no referral income and only first-time deposits are shown in the dashboard?

Everyone playing blind?

Oh that sucks. I thought it was like the previous competitions where authors were in the top winners.

eh, you can remove me from the signup form then. I’ll work on something else.
