1BDSMShare is a small affiliate program with just three adult sites, specializing in some significantly under-developed teen fetish niches. It is a good thing the content is exclusive and relatively unique, otherwise affiliates might favor skipping this program altogether. It’s not that it’s a bad program, but there are several issues worth mentioning – foremost being the rather clunky and garish layouts to both the affiliate webmasters area and the sites themselves. However, a good portion of the blame for the webmasters area appears to do less with the actual program than with their third-party billing and payment processor, DHD Media. Despite their shortcomings, 1BDSMShare will likely still appeal to affiliates promoting the rather under-saturated enema, messy, and teen BDSM fetish niches.

As already mentioned, the 1BDSMShare adult affiliate program uses DHD Media as a third-party billing and payment processor. They may not be as well known as similar programs, such as CCBill or Epoch, but are a division of the better known Commercegate/SegPay company and appear to be a favored processor for programs specializing in fetish niches – especially those that would have difficulty securing more traditional payment processing as a result of their content and/or nomenclature. Anecdotal evidence suggests that they are highly trusted in the adult community, seemingly placing a premium on transparency. So, affiliates can be relatively assured they will be credited with all referred sales and subsequent rebills.
Although galleries are indicated above as being absent, that is not entirely true. There is one. For all three sites that’s all there is, just one – though, they do promise that galleries will be forthcoming. While promotional photo content is currently available, the images are provided individually in an assortment of sizes, so affiliates will need to download each individually as opposed to downloading them all at once in a zip set where they can pick and choose at their leisure. Additionally, it does appear as if new content is being added, however as no dates are expressly given it is hard to say exactly how frequently, but apparently not very.
Obviously, 1BDSMShare is not a program that will appeal to all affiliates. Even those affiliates promoting the represented niches may be put-off to some extent by the pronounced lack of promotional tools and rather amateurish site designs. However, as the content is exclusive and fairly unique, some affiliates may view this program as a diamond in the rough; Requiring a bit more effort, but with the definite potential to make it all worthwhile.
