CumBucks is an adult affiliate program dedicated almost exclusively to high quality solo masturbation and female orgasm content, primarily featuring British babes. While this program has some features that affiliates will find of tremendous interest and benefit, the program is not without it’s shortcomings as well. To begin, CumBucks is a CCBill program which offers two join options for affiliates depending on whether they wish their commissions to be revshare or PPS. Personally, we have always been partial to revshare over PPS for residual earnings, but there is no good reason affiliates cannot join both and see what works best for them.

Affiliates interested in CumBuck’s revshare model should note that it starts at the customary 50%, with five bonus tiers in 5% increments. The program advertises an additional increase of up to 10% for affiliates who provide a link to one of the programs stores. To get that bump, affiliates are advised to contact the program informing them of where that link can be found. It should also be noted that the program specifies that the degree of increase is directly proportional to the prominence of the link. However, we are uncertain if that bump is still applicable as the provided DVD store link – and other links associated with joining a secondary program for promoting the DVD store directly – all redirect visitors to a store located as a sub-domain on the The Female Orgasm site. A store, we might add, that does not use CCBill as a payment processor so it is highly unlikely affiliates will receive commissions for any sales that result, unless there is another means of joining that aforementioned secondary program.
Unfortunately, the CumBucks program is very thin in terms of promotional content. For two of the sites there are no promotional tools provided whatsoever, including banners. For the rest, there are various gallery offerings, but the amount varies greatly with each site. Fortunately, as a CCBill program, affiliates can easily create their own deep links, effectively using the on-site pages as a substitute for galleries – a simple technique that is facilitated on a couple of the sites by their having appreciable site-depth with text rich update pages.
All that said, our chief complaint about the CumBucks program, and one that affiliates should give ample consideration, is that most of the sites have at least one traffic leak pointing to The Female Orgasm store (which in turn links out to other third party sites) and in some cases additional third party sites for which affiliates are rather unlikely to receive compensation.
While we like that the CumBucks program is a CCBill program offering affiliates the choice of revshare or PPS based commission models, as well as high-reaching bonus tiers, there are just too many traffic leaks to be ignored.
