ZURICH — Switzerland-based Vivalead SA, the parent company of French gay studio French-Twinks.com, has launched a new affiliate program: SwissBucks.com. This, according to French-Twinks.com, is “in response to the announcement of EpochStats’ discontinuation of payments to affiliates.”
A spokesperson for French-Twinks.com said, “For the past three years, affiliates of French Twinks have been managed by the studios but have outsourced their payments to EpochStats, who announced to affiliates and paysite owners in July that they would be discontinuing payments. Vivalead SA has made the decision that direct payments of affiliates is the best move forward, and immediately on hearing the news, started development of its new affiliate network SwissBucks, based on the French Twinks affiliate console — but with a newly developed technology to manage and validate the technical side of the statistics collected by us.”
SwissBucks, according to French-Twinks.com, are offering affiliates different currency options for payments. Initially, the available currencies will include U.S. dollars, euros, British pounds and Swiss francs.
SwissBucks will feature two sites for affiliates to promote: French-Twinks.com and Herbaliplus.com, described as “an e-commerce shop specializing in herbal supplements to assist with sexual performance.”
According to FrenchTwinks.com, “current affiliates with these sites can access SwissBucks with their existing credentials for the program to access previous statistics and ensure previously obtained rebills are linked to them. Affiliates will not need to change French Twinks links; by using the codes from the previous console, all sales and traffic will be tracked. It is worth noting that old, depreciated Epoch links that were originally used will need to be changed.”
SwissBucks, according to French-Twinks.com, has reached out to other paysite webmasters who were also using the closing Epoch program and is “looking to soon take on at least one more paysite.”
SwissBucks Director Antoine Lebel said, “SwissBucks affiliate network is open for both affiliates and new paysites and online e-commerce shops that identify as high value/high profit who are looking for an affiliate program.”
