BasementDollars recently divested themselves of all but one site devoted to Asian – Philippine (Pinay) specifically – niche content. When we initially reviewed the BasementDollars program there were several sites that were more fitting the amateur girlfriend niche than the Asian niche. Along the way, the program narrowed their focus to just the Asian niche, but have since removed even more to having just the one site, now. It was during that first transition that the links to access the banners and galleries – and thereby RSS feeds – got broken. As a result, affiliate will find a link to the remaining site provided, but that is extent of any provided promotional tools currently available. Just a note about that link: If you’re having trouble getting it to work as provided, remove the ‘s’ from the ‘http’ at the start of the CCBill link. [Review updated 09/12/2023]

Affiliates used to have a choice between promoting the program via CCBill or NATS. It appears that NATS is no longer an option. Regardless, we chose CCBill for two reasons: signup is immediate with no waiting for account approval, and CCBill provides the added incentive of allowing affiliates to group this program into the same account as other CCBill programs. This feature is especially attractive for those affiliates promoting multiple CCBill programs as it means that they need not be overly concerned about meeting each individual programs minimum payment threshold before getting paid so long as their total earnings for all of them exceeds CCBill’s minimum. Which is quite easy to do considering it is only $25.
As already mentioned, the BasementDollars program had a decent archive of hosted galleries. Unfortunately, those galleries were rather devoid of any unique text which might otherwise assist in their getting indexed as well as serve as a basis for affiliates to draft their own promotional copy. Additionally, affiliates could access those galleries via RSS feeds. Perhaps we’ll see the link to those tools fixed and they will again become available for affiliate promotion, but we wouldn’t advise holding your breath.
While this review may seem to suggest otherwise, we do like the BasementDollars program. Asian niche content is a perennial favorite among surfers. However, with only limited promotional tools provided for affiliates in addition to the apparent lack of updates, we cannot rank this otherwise good program too highly at this time.
