This thread is to further the wellbeing of EVE Online by discussing a legal incentivation for affiliates scheme, which has been vetted and approved by CCP (according to SOMER Blink).
Do not post rumors, only facts. Do not troll.
Do not discuss, link or advertize RMT. If you believe that Somer Blink is RMT'ing, report it via the petition system.
Do not make any more threads about this issue, as they will just annoy the ISD's.

The facts:

By purchasing PLEX through SOMER Blink's affiliate link you will earn a PLEX Credit.
This affiliate makes SOMER Blink at least 0.875 Dollars. (1 GTC = 1.75$)

A PLEX Credit can be redeemed in order to sell a PLEX ingame to SOMER Blink for more than it is actually worth.
The current Buy Price of this special PLEX is 830m ISK. A normal PLEX in Jita costs on average 785m ISK.

The difference of 45m ISK is what SOMER Blink rewards you with, because you made them earn 0.875 Dollars.
This translates to SOMER earning 19.4Dollars for every 1b ISK they needlessly pay you for expensive PLEX.

This program has been vetted and approved by CCP. Quote

Good grief!

First the rehashed rage for banning NPC corps and now this old stuff again?

Makes me wish for the good old days of 20 AFK cloak threads on page one.

It even said don't make multiple threads about it? Well that's handy.

17. Redundant and re-posted threads will be locked.
