Reason(s) for removal: CCBill payout details changed to 0.00% with zero rebills. Additional info: We have been told that the owners and administrators of the KickAssPays program are above reproach, so we reached out to them to find out what is going on with this program. We were told they recently integrated with NATS and they would look into it, but so far we have not heard back and the payout details with CCBill remain the same. So, perhaps not cheaters, but we would nevertheless steer clear until we can verify the commission and payment structures.
First impressions of the Kick Ass Pays adult affiliate program indicates this program really does kick ass! Kick Ass Pays is fairly large for a CCBill program, with 23 high quality sites in a variety of popular niches, many of which are relatively under-saturated. Although the program does continue to update, affiliates should be aware that only 7 of those sites appear to have new promotional content added fairly regularly. However, this is one of the better CCBill programs with more and better promotional tools than most, not least of which are the hosted galleries optimized for search engines including rather lengthy unique text scene descriptions.

Kick Ass Pays Summary
Although RSS feeds are indicated above, affiliates should know in advance that only one feed is provided, and that is for a hosted blog promoting their foot-fetish site. Likewise, where mobile content is indicated above, it should not be read to imply that links are provided for mobile versions of the site tours, nor that the sites are optimized for mobile traffic, which does not seem to be the case, but merely that there is a single site promoting content specifically for mobile devices.
Affiliates should also be aware that many of the Kick Ass Pays sites do employ canonical links. Since this program uses CCBill as a third party tracking and payment processor, that alone is not such a deal-breaker as the majority of CCBill programs drop the affiliates’ ID from the URLs anyway and rely entirely on cookies to track visitors. It’s just another reason for affiliates to give added consideration to primarily linking to the galleries as well as make use of nofollow rel tags should they decide to link directly to the sites. However, as already mentioned, the galleries are better than those of most other CCBill programs, optimized for search engines with unique titles, meta data, and lengthy unique text scene descriptions. Those scene descriptions are of particular importance as they not only give the search engines something to index but can also be used as a basis for affiliates to draft their own unique promotional copy.
With high quality content in a variety of specialty niches, Kick Ass Pays is a very good adult affiliate program. While it is fairly easy to say it is one of the best CCBill programs I have seen in awhile, I would hesitate to call it one of the best adult affiliate programs overall – though it does rank fairly high up on that list, too.
