What is KinkyDollars?

KinkyDollars is the affiliate program for promoting the websites of Kink.com & KinkMen.com, the world's leading producer of BDSM and fetish content. KinkyDollars is one of the oldest affiliate programs in the adult industry, dating back to the start of the company in 1997.

How does the program work?

We have simplified our affiliate structure in a way that makes our products smarter, so our affiliates can do less work. Links sent to kink.com via affiliate link codes will work for all of our products. Our subscriptions will continue to generate 50% rev-share up to 24 monthly subscriptions, and bonus to 60% for all subscription orders once 25 orders has been reached. Our Shoots and Partner Content are available to purchase individually, as well. Kink Original Content generates a 50% rev-share for the affiliate. All Partner Content generates a rev-share of 30%. As we add more products and ways to bundle purchases, we will update our affiliates, but they will not have to change their links to enable those programs.

What If I want to be Paid Per Subscription (PPS)?

Pay Per Subscription Options are available, and can be set and negotiated by the affiliate manager. Please contact affiliates@kinkydollars.com to request PPS as your default setting for subscription orders.
