“Effective today, all accounts that have had no payout activity in the past 12 months will be closed. If you would like to create a new account moving forward, you can apply and go through the application process, which involves several steps. This is necessary for the continued success of all affiliates and our adult community.”
Since our initial review of the WhaleCash adult affiliate program, they have transitioned away from the once hugely popular ‘faux tube’ pages to more straight forward CPA banners, widgets, and landers. By ‘faux tube’ we mean those pages that give every outward appearance of being tube sites, but when users click a thumbnail to go to the expected free video, they are instead prompted to join in order to see said content. While there are many niches touched upon, the overwhelming majority of the WhaleCash offers are targeted toward adult game/sex simulator content and adult dating. Regardless, all of the offers provide free (trial) signups to the users, and pay affiliates up to $57 per signup, depending upon geo. [Review updated 12/12/2022]

We would recommend affiliates first select the niche they are interested in which will pull up the offers currently available. From there, many offers will have the creative links active so that affiliates can easily find a relevant ad to partner with the offer. However, affiliates are free to mix and match as they see fit. It is also worth noting that some of those banner images will likely seem familiar, as they appear regularly on the more popular tube sites and ad broker widgets.
While some webmasters are not fond of these types of ‘Free Lifetime’ sites and their prevalent use of cross-sales, we subscribe to the Caveat emptor – let the buyer beware – school of thought. If the user were billed for things without their permission, express or otherwise, that would be one thing, but when the terms are clearly laid out as to the length of the trial period and other ancillary subscriptions, then we feel the fault rests entirely with them for not taking the time to read the terms to fully understand what they were agreeing to before submitting their credit card information.
Another bit of Latin comes to mind: Caveat venditor – let the seller beware. Affiliates may want to exercise caution in precisely how they promote some of the WhaleCash toon content. A sizable portion of the content parodies that of a sizable and very litigious company. While there is some protection afforded as parody, we would just as soon avoid any confrontation of that sort whatsoever. Just because the law is on your side does not mean that the big D couldn’t make things rather difficult for you.
As mentioned, you’ve probably already seen the WhaleCash sites extensively advertised on tube sites and ad broker widgets. Why? It converts. As a content program, it falls rather short, but if you’re looking to monetize some ad spots you might want to check them out.
