Had a notification via Paypal for a payout from Envato.

No idea what it's for but it was a reasonable amount round $100

Anyone else get one of these?

And no I did not request a payout of earnings as I'm no where near the $50 limit

I did once get a "sale" for about $50 I couldn't find which pic. I didn't ask as I was scared it was some kind of error  :o.

Where did you find that? For the life of me I can't find that page Elements just shows some photos and nothing else for me.

The reason for the bonus was in the email link. It said that the money from unused downloads was distributed evenly among the contributors. Nice to see them looking out for the remaining contributors.

The email from James arrived much later after the cash went thru Paypal

Ironically, I got the email, but haven't received the cash yet.

For some reason, the page on that link will not open for me. It's just loading endlessly. I use google chrome.

If I login here https://elements-contributors.envato.com/ and then go Earnings report on the top right corner nothjing happens. And all other links are dead too, for example payout method...

And if I put the link https://elements-contributors.envato.com/account/earnings/2017-05 directly into my browser, I'm getting thrown to contributor agreement. This site is completely broken.

Ok, I've solved it. I had to accept agreement and now everything is working great. I also had contributor bonus, ~99$

Also, don't forget to double check that you have all the proper tax forms in place so you don't have any unnecessary withholdings.


My tax form in Photodune is up to date, but in Elements i can't find tax section. Do i have to fill second tax form for Elements? I have incorrect tax withheld of 30% instead of 5% in Elements...

It's not incorrect, envato is australian based, so 30% is probably right amount. I checked yesterday. I'm also paying 30% at Canva, which is also *.au based.

As far as payments go, they are US based. It's the IRS that insists on withholding taxes. If you have a 5% treaty, you should only get 5% withheld.

Treaty with US or AU? Also, as the other user said, there is no tax section on their page.

According to this help page, Elements is Australia based for payments.

https://help.contributors.elements.envato.com/hc/en-us/articles/229335967-Why-has-tax-been-withheld-from-my-earnings-

The payment comes through as Envato USA Inc, which is the same as PhotoDune.

I'm in the USA
I have 0% withheld on PhotoDune
I have 5% withheld on Elements
I have 10% withheld on Canva

I'm confused.

A quick search on Google did turn up this page though:

Yes, with the bonuses showing up, Photodune/Envato has suddenly become my #3 earning site. Didn't see that coming.

That alone is helping them exceed DT, CanStockPhoto, BigStock, and Alamy. :'(
