Reason(s) for removal: The ButterflyBucks program along with their sister program have been combined into the all new GhostCash. Additional info: Follow the link provided for our review of the newly combined program.
ButterflyBucks is a CCBill adult affiliate program with Asian, specifically Thai, content. Although there are only 6 sites at the moment, they are all of exceptional high quality and cover a range of Asian related sub-niches including teen, amateur, and big tits. Best of all, unlike many other CCBill programs, ButterflyBucks also delivers on the promotional tools with RSS feeds, hosted blogs, POTDs, and a plethora of various ad tools. While the photo content is top-notch, the only complaint that I can foresee is from affiliates who primarily promote video content as the hosted movie galleries are rather limited in comparison.

As mentioned, affiliates who predominately promote video content may be rather disappointed by the paucity of video content offered by ButterflyBucks. At present there are no FLV clips, hosted or otherwise, though that may prove a boon to affiliates as it means that surfers have not already seen the content countless times already on tubes – at least not legally. However, most of the sites also have a disproportionate lack of hosted movie galleries compared to the available hosted photo galleries. Furthermore, while lots of photo content is available for affiliates to build their own galleries, there is also considerably less video content available for that same purpose, though there is still a good deal for so-inclined industrious affiliates.
Again, ButterflyBucks is a CCBill adult affiliate program. In addition to having the tools that many other CCBill programs lack, ButterflyBucks is one of the few CCBill programs to not rely entirely on cookies to track visitors but uses hard-links as well. What this means to the affiliate is that when a surfer follows a tour link from a gallery to the site, the affiliates ID is still there in the URL. If that same visitor now bookmarks the page to come back later, and hopefully join, the page they return to, even a year later, will still contain the affiliates ID and thus the affiliate will be credited for the sale if they choose to join. For most other CCBill programs which rely exclusively on cookies, the affiliate would not be credited as the cookie would likely have been dumped or expired. Affiliates should be aware, however, that the hosted blogs still rely on cookies and the affiliates ID will not be hard-linked to the target pages.
To summarize: ButterflyBucks is a very good program for Asian, specifically Thai, content. The photo content is very attractive, which is certainly a plus considering there is much more of it than the accompanying video content. And, to top it all off, ButterflyBucks is a CCBill program with all of the benefits of using the third party program to track visitors and sales, but without many of the drawbacks. Affiliates looking for excellent quality Asian content should definitely consider giving the ButterflyBucks adult affiliate program some serious consideration.
