Major IAPs: CCBill, EpochStats, Verotel

CCBill – is the biggest and the most established and powerful Integrated Affiliate Platform. It’s sending affiliate and program owners checks like clock work for years. CCBill billing is also the biggest adult processing company. Because it’s easy to have a program set there and it’s the popular for affiliates most of adult new comers start with it. If you’d like to have CCBill account set for affiliate program click here for US/CanadaEUOutside of US and EU.
To start promoting CCBill programs you should create initial (master) account with any program you like e.g. http://www.latinteencash.com/v3/signup.php by clicking “Create Account” button. Once created, you’ll have to use ‘Existing CCBill Webmaster’ form to join any other CCBill program, using your master PA and login data.
Because CCBill is the biggest affiliate platform I wrote CCBill manual with detailed explanation on how everything works there. For the last few years SignbucksDaily was the only site providing complete list of all CCBill programs.
There has been released CCBill WMS platform at the end of 2009 to replace CCBill legacy (the one we are talking about), but even now it’s still not working smoothly. The legacy version is still perfect and I strongly recommend program owners and affiliates to use one before WMS will be finally fixed.
You can grab linking codes for programs you have joined by logging into http://admin.ccbill.com/ and going to ‘Tools’ section. Click ‘Get banners’ to get the code.
CCBill code looks like this
http://refer.ccbill.com/cgi-bin/clicks.cgi?CA=920029-0000&PA=1782509
CA = Client Account, program’s ID into CCBill database, which can have sub-account other than default -0000. It’s important to know such option as account grouping. It could be enabled or disabled by the program owner. You can ask CCBill support for its status. Program owners use specific sub-accounts for their pay sites join forms to track sales from different sites within the program. If the option is enabled you can promote any site with default -0000 sub-account (actually it doesn’t matter and can be dropped into link, so the link will look like http://refer.ccbill.com/cgi-bin/clicks.cgi?CA=920029&PA=1782509). If it’s disabled then you should join each sub-account separately and use sub-account link correspondent to its join form sub-account.
PA = Personal Account, absolutely unique affiliate ID within the system for a specific program. You have your master account PA – the first account you have obtained with CCBill. Then you get unique PA for each program you’d like to promote. You should always use PA into custom built link codes corresponding to that program.
&HTML= redirect code allows you to send your traffic to any page of the site: http://refer.ccbill.com/cgi-bin/clicks.cgi?CA=920029-0000&PA=1782509&HTML=http://www.ftvcash.com
It works with most CCBill programs, but not all. There’s another option called ‘multiple redirects’. It should be enabled to have redirect work, otherwise your traffic will be sent to default landing page specified by program owner.
You can always ask the program owner to enable any of those options. They are disabled by default in CCBill program settings and not all owners know these specific options.
Very great thing CCBill provides is that you can check whether your traffic is being credited or not. Simply click your link or any other promo tool provided by a program. Go to pay site join form and search its html source for your unique PA. With account grouping off you still see your PA, but your sales won’t be credited. If you can’t find your PA or are in doubt regarding account grouping – contact CCBill support for assistance.
CCBill pay sites can also use Epoch and SegPay billings even as primary.  They should be properly set into billing cascade, so you’ll see Epoch and SegPay join form links through CCBill domain. Otherwise they aren’t set correct and your sales won’t be credited. If there are any other third party billers like Verotel, TicketsClub, Zombaio or others – you won’t be credited (that’s is called join leaks). You’ll have to contact program owner to fix it. Please report those sites at mrdeizSIGNBUCKScom
CCBill offers payments in checks and wires on weekly basis. CCBill’s pay periods run from Sunday through Saturday. You can get your payments information into admin: Reports>Check amounts. The payout for each period is issued nine days after the last day of the billing period (on Monday). If Monday is a national holiday, checks will be mailed out the following business day, Tuesday. You’ll see the amount “To pay” in Thursday for previous week payment. Payout limit is as low as $25, so you better increase it to avoid low amount checks.
CCBill provides sales statistics into admin: Reports>Transactions (Affiliate).You can view your sales referrers by checking ‘Breakdown by URL's:’ option at the bottom of the page.
Epoch is the second largest adult billing company, but their affiliate platform is behind CCBill. EpochStats uses earlier version of MPA3 script for its affiliate platform.
You also should obtain master account with any of those programs, the other programs you join will be merged with it. To get EpochStats codes you should login into http://www.epochstats.com/webmasters/index.php go to Marketing > Linking codes. Most ES programs have their promo tools (if there’s such) into that admin.
This is EpochStats paysite link: http://hits.epochstats.com/hits.php?clc=8ee9321da868a4aea27a42db1f7cf83f&id=10666758
You can have it redirected to any page of a site through &URL= parameter at the end 
http://hits.epochstats.com/hits.php?clc=8ee9321da868a4aea27a42db1f7cf83f&id=10666758&URL=tour/home_affiliate.php (remove domain from the URL, just page path)
You can also find in use previous version of their code http://hits.epochstats.com/hit.php?s=457&p=2&w=10666758&c=0
To check whether tracking is right – click your code and go to join page. Join page should use this kind of links for join forms: https://sales.epochstats.com/signup/pre-join.php. Click it and watch closely how address link changes, so you should be seeing a link like this with your reseller id:
https://wnu.com/secure/services/?api=join&pi_code=ceeroo1p74091&reseller=10666758&x_username=2418120371308919140&response_post=Y&x_processor=epoch&retry_count=4&pi_returnurl=https%3A%2F%2Fsales.epochstats.com%2Fsignup%2Fprocess_signup.php&site=2418&co_code=46i&x_password=1308919140&user1=10666758|2|0|2418120371308919140&x_keyword=916984760
–°heck each Epoch program you are going to promote for correct join form links. It’s the most common issue for many newbie Epoch programs having set their join page incorrect. That’s an example of incorrect link: https://wnu.com/secure/fpost.cgi?pi_code=cauwaweu10981p47782&reseller=a&bgcolor=0C0401&textcolor=FDF8E1. Program owners should get Epoch join forms links from Epoch admin: "Program Reports" > Setup > Linking codes.
If you find sites with incorrect join page setup or other billing than Epoch - please report them at mrdeizSIGNBUCKScom.
EpochStats statistics provide all important data including sales referring URLs. If you don’t see any URL for a sale it means that it’s a bookmark sale or system couldn’t track where it came from (e.g. browser doesn’t send referrer).
Epoch pays in checks and wires every Friday for transaction 2 weeks in arrear.
Verotel is the thierd largest platform and it has some good niched programs in there. It’s based on their billings Verotel and TicketsClub (for smaller amounts). It provides very simple affiliate back-end with just a few options. Join any of those programs you like first, then use your master account to join others.
Linking codes are into “My Setup > My banners” part of the admin. You should choose specific program you've joined then click “View banner html” and copy your code, which looks like http://links.verotel.com/cgi-bin/showsite.verotel?vercode=31383:9804000000935733, where 31383 is Verotel paysite ID, 9804000000935733 is your ID. You can link to any page you want by using &URL= redirect parameter at the end of the code, like 
http://links.verotel.com/cgi-bin/showsite.verotel?vercode=31383:9804000000935733&URL=http://www.amateurbarefeetmodels.com/updates.html
For checking if the affiliate program is set correct – click through your link to the join form and you will see your affiliate ID into browser address bar.
Verotel statistics show just general traffic info and sales with only site and date info.
Verotel also supports only its own billing Verotel and TicketsClub. You won’t be credited for any other billings. Verotel does not support webmaster referral option which gives a credit for referring other webmasters to promote a program. If you can’t find a link to join specific Verotel program – use this URL with website ID you’ll find into join form address: http://links.verotel.com/cgi-bin/addreseller.verotel?verotel_website=58785
Payments are issued by check or wire each Monday with 20-25 days hold.

Affiliate-Cash.de (Inet-Cash) is also a smaller platform with German roots. You can create your master account with any of those programs.
Affiliate-Cash programs you have joined linking codes can be taken from “Own sites” menu into admin. Click “Display links and banners” in order to get links. That’s Affiliate-Cash paysite link: http://www.affiliate-cash.de/kunden.php?nummer=371626029&progid=28336
nummer=371626029 is your affiliate ID and progid=28336 – specific site ID. You can link to any paysite page you like by using &html= redirect at the end of the link, like 
http://www.affiliate-cash.de/kunden.php?nummer=371626029&progid=28336&html=http://www.studentsbound.com/updates.html?goin=true
Go to “Service>Manage Sales IDs” to create any ID which can be used instead of your nummer=371626029 for tracking purposes (you can use words too).
You can see your ID into any Affilaite-Cash paysite join page. Statistics don’t provide sales referring URLs.
Zombaio is the newest affiliate platform started at the end of 2007 with the lowest 4.9% rate billing and no Visa fee program account owners. It works pretty smooth so far.
Payments are issued in checks and wires on a daily basis (per request).

Does anyone have any thoughts on my micro-niche of absolutely unedited, raw footage of adult agency castings? they are actual castings, so lots of talking, pausing for direction, face pulling, dumb questions etc. Is this something people would like? Or should I rather just make it into a regular casting niche site?

Hey Lydia. What pictures are you talking about? And why are you posting it here?

A niche' is MATURE The sub-niche' covers Mom vs. Boy 2 Moms vs. Boy, 3 and so on... Party of moms, one boy. Then...just Milf vs. stud Granny vs. boy (or stud) Mature lesbian vs teen Mature lesbian group Old man vs teen 2 Teens vs older man etc..etc. then vintage stuff..

wrong. Yes, Mature is a niche. So is Feet, Ebony, Latina, Creampie, Teen, BBW, ATM, Shemale and the list goes on... It's when you start getting specific the niche turns into sub and micro niches...the more specific, the smaller the niche. I.E. General niche: Mature sub-niche: Mature lesbian micro-niche: Mature lesbian vs teen

Actually dirty feet, strapon lesbian sex, socks porn, black shemales, famous toons, etc. are all SUB-niches. Toe-ringed dirty feet, black shemales with big tits, toe-socks porn, strapon ebony lesbian sex are micro-niches. The extra niche makes it a micro-niche.

I believe Alterpay is actually called "AlertPay". That might confuse a people if left like that.
