This is just awful and is compounded by the usual Udemy obfuscation, using an undefined term such as "blended share". For me, it means a a reduction in income of 26% (as I will now get 37% rather than 50% of sales, as don't do any independent promotion). If I wanted to spend my time on independent promotion, rather than course creation, I'd put the course on my own shop on Thinkific, rather than a "department store" such as Udemy. I opted out of promotions long ago because I don't want my high value courses selling for around $10, which is what happens when one signs up to to promotions. To be frank, it just looks ridiculous to see a course with $150 dollar price-tag selling at $10. It says, "the real price is $10 but I'm pretending it's $150, so you think you have a good deal"...transparent nonsense. So that's not for me. This is a real kick in the teeth for high value providers who now have to seriously consider their options.
