Dear Valued Affiliate,
We are pleased to share some very exciting news with you:
As an affiliate of PRIDE BUCKS we would like to inform you that PRIDE STUDIOS has been acquired by the award-winning BUDDY PROFITS affiliate program.
Buddy Profits works with the biggest studios in gay adult entertainment to bring a wide variety of sites featuring high quality and award-winning content. Pride Studios’ websites will soon be integrated under Buddy Profits including: MenOver30.com, ExtraBigDicks.com, CircleJerkBoys.com, BoyzParty.com and 1GayPass.com.
The sites will be relaunched with an all-new design in order to improve user experience, site functionality and affiliate conversions – all while maintaining the essence of the sites as they each exist today. If you are not currently sending traffic to any of our sites, this will be a great time to start!
On June 20, 2013, you will be issued a NEW affiliate username/account number and password to BuddyProfits.com via e-mail.
Your Pride Bucks account details have been securely imported into BuddyProfits.com. Once you receive your new username/account number and password we encourage you to log in to your account to ensure all your information is up-to-date and correct.
The default payment method on Buddy Profits is by check. Payments are in USD and sent twice per month: on the 1st and 16th of each month. The payment covers the previous 2 weeks. If you would like to receive your payment by any other means, you will need to update your preferred payment method (wire, Paxum or Payoneer).
All current Pride Bucks linking codes will automatically redirect and continue to record any affiliate traffic you send to the sites. Hosted galleries, embedded videos, and iframe tools will continue to be hosted through the end of the year.
Please be advised that, while your current Pride Bucks linking codes will continue to work after the move, we encourage you to update your links using the Buddy Profits linking codes tool as soon as possible.
We are excited to continue to grow our business together — you’ll soon understand why we’re “An Affiliate Program, Unlike Any Other”. If you have any questions regarding Buddy Profits, we can be reached via email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
