Also, if the theme was on sale when a user bought it, and the price was €100, you’ll make €25. We make monthly payouts via PayPal in EUR. The minimum payout amount required to receive payment is €50; there is no maximum payout amount. Additional services like ("Install kit") are not included in the affiliate program.

When potential customers click on your referral link, cookies are stored in their browsers for the next 30 days. If users make purchases within that period, your referral commission will be approved.
