How does the Elements Affiliate Program work?

Once you’re approved to join the Elements Affiliate Program, you will be eligible to earn commission on any new customers who purchase a subscription to Envato Elements. 

We track your referrals by using unique links that you embed in your advertising and marketing content. You can send traffic through any content you create, including articles, videos, banners, or ads.

In order to qualify as a new customer, the person you refer must not have had an Elements subscription before. Provided that they are eligible, you will earn a referral commission on their subscription within 90 days of clicking on your link.

How are Elements Affiliates compensated? 

The amount of money you’re paid will depend on which kind of subscriber you’ve successfully referred. 

Monthly subscribers 

If you refer a monthly subscriber, you can earn up to $60 USD. This is paid in $20 increments each month for 3 months. 

For example, on the first month, you will receive $20, followed by $20 in the second month and another $20 in the third month. 

The customer must continue to pay their subscription for you to earn your commission. 

Annual subscribers 

If you refer someone who creates an annual subscription, you will receive $120 USD. 

—> If you refer 1 annual subscription per day, you’ll earn $3,600 per month!

Who is eligible to become an Elements Affiliate?

The program is primarily designed for anyone who has an existing audience. This could be from your website, a blog, social media—anything!
