With high quality content and a decent selection of promotional tools, Swank Dollars is a very good adult affiliate program. The Swank Dollars program is by the folks behind the adult magazine of the same name – in fact, they publish several of the more explicit magazine titles with which you are undoubtedly familiar. As such, they have decades of experience for putting out multiple monthly releases of fresh, high quality content. Just because they started as a magazine publisher do not be misled into thinking this program only offers photo content – there are multiple options for affiliates who primarily promote video content, including FLVs.

Swank Dollars Summary
The Swank Dollars adult affiliate program offers affiliates the opportunity of using NATS or CCBill for tracking visitors and sales. Since both programs have their pros and cons, arguments can be made either way, so it is really a matter for each affiliate to decide. That said, affiliates who may wish to promote some of the sites with a PPS payment option, as opposed to revshare across the board, should consider joining via the NATS option.
As mentioned above, in addition to video galleries the Swank Dollars adult affiliate program also offers their affiliates promotional flash videos (FLVs) – both hosted and embedded. Multiple options are available for affiliates to search the videos, such as by niche, site, duration, or any combination thereof. Additionally, multiple export options are also available, from downloading as a CSV file, to several of the more popular tube scripts – even as RSS feeds! Affiliates who prefer to build their own promotional tools with provided downloadable content will unfortunately find that it has been a few years since anything new was added – though there is an impressive collection ready for affiliates who do not mind promoting older content. Although most of the RSS feeds update weekly and contain multiple images with several lines of text, they link directly to the sites and not to individual gallery updates. Sadly, though the galleries contain unique scene description text as well, they are not updated as frequently as affiliates might like.
Those considering joining the Swank Dollars adult affiliate program should be further heartened to learn that this program does not use any of the shady indexing tricks as do some other programs. Specifically, affiliates will not find noindex meta tags, canonical links, or robots txt files being used to prevent the affiliates links from getting indexed. Less than frequent updates aside, affiliates should find the Swank Dollars adult affiliate program to be one of the better programs for a selection of name-brand general hardcore and niche sites offering high quality content.
