We can understand there might be some technical limitiations in connecting markets via the same links. Ok, no problem, we can promote them separately in that case! But there is absolutely no excuse for keeping banners and stealing sales from audiojungle authors and affiliate traffic. Really highly unethical. Some people pay for expensive google ads to drive traffic to audiojungle portfolio, which ends up in Elements. It takes a few clicks and a minute to disable banners and make it a fair game for authors and affiliates. This is really frustrating and I’ve never seen such behavior, and I’m an affiliate for 6 stock markets, including biggest competitors of Envato. I really cannot believe this.
At this point I just want banners simply completely removed, because I want a simple, fast and fair solution both for authors and affiliates. If affiliates get paid, authors will still suffer because of the ads on their items. I can promote Elements separately. It would be selfish of me to get paid nice referral cuts via elements banners, while non-elements and non-affiliate authors still suffer. We are all a community and we should stick together and do what’s best for everyone.
