As suggested by their name, the Leather Pays adult affiliate program would best be described as being primarily devoted to leather fetish wear content. We say primarily because although leather is the focus of three of their four quality sites, the fourth site seems more of a catch-all for various fetish content with the leather articles of clothing being rather ancillary. It is worth noting that while Leather Pays’ photo content is high resolution, affiliates primarily accustomed to promoting video content may be disappointed to learn that their corresponding videos are not HD quality.

As mentioned, Leather Pays offers four quality sites with photo and video content devoted to ladies in leather. One site is devoted to ladies in leather gloves, another leather boots, the third an assortment of leather coats and outfits, and the fourth is a random mix with the leather articles being less of the focus than the other fetishes represented. It should also be noted that most of the content is rather softcore stuff with solo girls stripping and posing – pretty much modeling the articles of focus. However there is some harder content mixed in, with more explicit solo scenes, girl girl scenes, and some light BDSM and Fem-Dom with guys as well.
Some affiliates will be pleased to know that Leather Pays is a CCBill program, meaning that tracking, sales, and affiliate payments are all handled by the third party company. Many affiliates feel that programs that willingly relinquish any direct influence over stats and monies garners them some additional trust. The use of CCBill also carries the added benefit of allowing affiliates to group this program along with their other CCBill programs into a single account with exceptionally low-minimum weekly payouts. Unfortunately, the use of CCBill also means that tracking is accomplished exclusively through cookies, and the affiliates ID is dropped from the URL when surfers arrive on site. For this reason, we typically recommend affiliates consider linking predominantly to the programs galleries – which retain the affiliates ID in the URL, as well as using nofollow relationship attributes when linking to the sites directly.
With ongoing updates and several of the more popular promotional tools, Leather Pays is a good program, though probably not for all affiliates. Obviously, affiliates pushing ladies in leather content will certainly want to have a look at the Leather Pays program, the content could also be easily promoted by those pushing solo and softcore posing content as well.
