Platinum Bucks Unveils Expanded Version, Two New Programs

Jeff Berg
CYBERSPACE — Version 4.0 of adult affiliate company Platinum Bucks launched over the weekend, consolidating its original three programs under one website and adding two additional programs and a bevy of new features to the mix.

Affiliate members are now able to log into their Discount Pass Bucks, Free Pass Bucks and Platinum Bucks accounts using a single user ID and password, as well as take advantage of the token-based video-on-demand program Adult Rental and the Sex Find search engine.

Adult Rental offers webmasters $25 for every user sent to the site that purchases credits in order to watch its DivX-formatted movies. Credits cost $14.87 for 60, $29.87 for 140, and $49.87 for 300.

The Sex Find program allows members to either purchase keywords that directly link to their sites and have all of the clicks garnered from those keywords reported to the Platinum Bucks stat page, or to earn money by adding Sex Find search boxes to their webpages. Webmasters who place search boxes on their sites earn 70 percent of all revenue generated by users clicking on Sex Find advertisements.

In addition to the new programs, the most recent Platinum Bucks version offers webmasters referring URLs, a variety of new statistics tracking services, including mobile phone stats and first- and second-page hits, support for multiple trial prices and a custom gallery builder.

Platinum Bucks is nominated for a 2004 XBiz Award in the Affiliate Program of the Year category.
