Top Webcam Forums for Cam Girls

Whether you’re new to the camming world or a veteran, it’s good to have a place where you can ask questions, get advice, vent, and hang out with other cam girls. Luckily there are several large forum sites where you can do just that! In the video, I briefly explain some of the general features you’ll find on each of the big forums. Here are some more details on each:

AmberCutie’s Forum

AmberCutie is one of the biggest and best forums for cam girls! It’s very active, and new posts are made daily. They have both a public section and a section reserved for “verified cam girls”. There are plenty of resource guides in the public section to help new cam girls get started. But if you’re an active cam model and active on the forum, you can apply to get “verified cam girl” status so you can access the Models Only forum. Male and transgender cam models are welcome on the public forum, and there is even a male model thread, but the Models Only section is reserved only for cam girls. They don’t exactly explain their full reasoning behind this, but they do say that it was originally started for Myfreecams¬†models (since the owner cammed on MFC), and since MFC only allows female models, the majority of the posts are focused around cam girls.

The two main public sections on the forum are General Cam Chat and Ask-a-Model. If you’re new to camming, the General Cam Chat section is your new best friend! There are pages and pages full of resource guides, tips and tricks, advice to succeed on specific cam sites, toy reviews, and so much more! Even if you’re a veteran to camming, you’ll find lots of interesting threads to read where you can discuss different aspects of being a cam girl with girls who do the same thing as you. If you’re uncomfortable talking about what you do with friends or family, this is a great place to go and chat with other models who can relate.

The Ask-a-Model section also has a lot of guides for new models. If you have a question about something related to camming, you can most likely find the answer in one of the threads. And if you can’t find an answer to your question, you can always start your own thread. Chances are it’ll be answered by a member of the community in no time. If you need help understanding how forums work and some basic etiquette for cam models, You can view our article titled: Webcam Forum Etiquette.

Wecamgirls

Wecamgirls is another great site. Not only do they have a forum, but they have lots of other features as well. The forum is very active, and you can find models making posts throughout the day, every day. They have threads about every major cam site and content selling site with lots of tips and advice. Even some of the newer and smaller sites are listed on there. There are very useful threads about different adult-friendly payment methods, the best hardware and software to use on different sites, camming equipment, and more. There are even threads to promote your website and sell/buy sex toys, clothes, and jewelry from other models.

Besides the forum, they have an extensive review section with thousands of reviews on cam sites, payment providers, content selling sites, and studios. They also have over 1,000 resource guides.

Stripper Web

StripperWeb was originally started as a resource forum for strippers, but they have added a Camming Connection section for “virtual strippers” aka cam models! There are over 400 pages in that section of the forum alone. There are guides for different cam sites and content selling sites, general camming guides for getting started, equipment info, and just general discussions. You can find a lot of information on the forum, so it’s a good place for new cam models to start if you’re looking for some guides and advice. And if you’re just looking for a place to vent, read other cam models personal stories, and get some tips from girls who are dealing with similar situations, you can check out the Life Support section.

Naked.com Review

Naked.com review

Naked.com Review

Naked.com is a live cam site that features mainly female models, but also has some boy/girl couple accounts. Below I rate them in several different categories, giving them a score in each category out of 10. Out of 60 possible points, I gave them 58/60, with an average score of 9.66. They excelled in every category, only losing a couple points for not offering payments by check and not having geo-blocking when they list contest results.

How Much Experience Do You Have With The Site?
I’ve never cammed on Naked, but I do have a model account on there that I used to test the site out and get a feel for everything.

Features 10/10:
Naked.com has so many great and easy to use features! The first is their built-in broadcast programs. They have both a standard (non-HD) broadcaster and a HD broadcaster (called the iModel Application). Both are easy to use, but it is highly recommended that you stream in HD. Your video and audio quality will be greatly improved if you do. The standard broadcaster is browser-based and the iModel Application is desktop based, meaning you have to download and install it on your computer.

You can offer several different kinds of shows to your fans on naked.com. If a fan wants to do a one-on-one show with you, they can take you private. The default rate for a Private Show is $4.99/minute, but you can adjust your price if you choose to. In a Private Show, other members of the site can join as a Spy Show. Your Spy Show rate is automatically calculated for you, and is $2 less than your private rate per minute. If someone is spying on your Private Show, they will pay per minute and only be able to watch the show. They will not be able to hear anything or chat with you in any way. You can also do a Tip Show. For a Tip Show, you set a goal you want to reach, how long until you want to reach it, and how much each fan has to tip into the show in order to watch it. If you meet your goal (or get close enough that you want to start) in the allotted time period, you will be taken into a private show. Only your fans who tipped into the show will be able to watch. Even after a Tip Show has started, fans who haven’t tipped in yet are able to tip and join.

Aside from live cam shows, you can also sell videos, tangible goods, and other services on your profile. If you upload videos to the site, they’ll be listed for sale on your profile. You choose all of your own prices. You can also sell panties, used toys, Snapchat access, pretty much anything you can think of! If you are selling other goods and services, you can only accept payment on Naked.com. Asking a customer to pay you through any other method is against the rules.

Another great feature that’s offered on naked.com is DMCA takedowns. If you notice your videos on clip sites or anywhere on the internet without your permission, you can contact the support staff at naked.com and they will help you get it removed. This is a feature that can really add up and take a lot of time if you’re doing it on your own. Naked.com helps make it easy for you.

Profits & Traffic 10/10:
On naked.com, models keep 50% of all the money they generate on the site. That means you keep 50% of all the money you earn in tips, private shows, spy shows, tip shows, and video sales. As with any cam site, what you put into your shows and how dedicated you are to your job, helps to determine how much you’ll make. Some of the top models on the site are earning hundreds of thousands of dollars a year, with the top girl earning over half a million dollars last year! Naked.com generates a lot of quality traffic, and their numbers keep growing! The site has grown exponentially since their launch, and they do a great job advertising the site to continue to increase traffic, thus increasing profits for the models! They have a Twitter account with over 39K followers. If you tag them in a tweet, they will retweet it for you. They also do shout-outs pretty frequently.

As I mentioned in the features section, there are other ways you can earn money on the site besides from doing live cam shows. You can sell your videos, sell tangible goods, and offer other services such as Snapchat access. You can even list your Amazon wishlist on your profile so fans can spoil you with items!

Naked.com also has a daily contest for models to win extra cash! Every day they award $1000 to the top 5 models who earn the most on the site. $500 for first place, $250 for second, $125 for third, $75 for fourth, and $50 for fifth place.

Ease Of Using & Navigating The Site 10/10:
I found naked.com to be incredibly easy to navigate through. The model dashboard and all of the links are very self-explanatory and easy to figure out. Without much effort, you’ll be able to navigate the site and figure out where everything is. Both the standard and the HD broadcasters are also easy to setup and configure.

Payments & Cashouts 9/10:
Naked.com offers several different payout options for you to choose from. The first way is a CMB paycard. This is the fastest payment method. You can cashout as often as you like, even every day if you choose to. This is for US models only and the minimum payout is $35. A fee of $4.95 is deducted every time you load your card. The next way to cashout is through a direct bank deposit with Dwolla. Weekly payments are sent directly to your bank account through Dwolla. Again this is for US customers only. The minimum payout is $2, and there is a $1 fee per transfer. The pay period for this method runs from Monday-Sunday and they deposit funds to you the following Friday. You can also cashout using Payoneer by either direct deposit through them or a Payoneer paycard. For direct bank deposit through Payoneer, there is a minimum payout of $20 and fees range from $2.99 to $9.99 per transaction. This option is offered for all models, even international. The pay period for this method runs from Monday-Sunday and they deposit funds to you the following Friday. You can also have your weekly payments put on a new or existing Payoneer paycard. This method is offered globally and there is a $20 minimum payout. The pay period for this method runs from Monday-Sunday and they deposit funds to you the following Friday. Naked.com does not offer their own direct deposit (but both Payoneer and Dwolla do) or mailed checks.

Privacy Protection & Geo-Blocking 9/10:
You can rest assured that your identity will be protected on Naked.com. Privacy protection is very important to them, and your personal information will never be given out to anyone. If you’re concerned about people you know seeing your live cam shows, naked.com offers regional blocking on the site. You can block individual US states from viewing your profile, as well as entire non-US countries. If you have a region blocked, no one from there will be able to view your profile, live cam shows, pictures, or videos you sell on the site. Contest results are the only thing that will display your username regardless of geo-blocking.

Customer Service & Support 10/10:
The customer service and support team at Naked.com is great! You can contact them at any time if you have a question or if you’re having an issue on the site. They have 24/7 phone and email support, and always get back to you quickly. Their support staff is very knowledgable and will help you with anything you’re having trouble with. They also have a very indepth Wiki page and a Model FAQ page. If you have a question about a feature on the site, you will most likely be able to find the answer on there.

Overview:
Overall naked.com is a very well put together live cam site with many great features to help you succeed. They have a very good website address that generates lots of organic traffic, aside from the traffic each model brings in from advertising. The site is set up in a way that makes it easy to use for both you and your fans. I’m excited to watch them grow!

DMCA Takedowns

How to Dmca Webcam Content

DMCA stands for The Digital Millennium Copyright Act. A DMCA takedown notice is a notification to a company (generally a website or search engine), that they are either hosting or linking to copyright-infringing material. It provides them notice to remove the copyrighted content. Once you become an established cam model and have more people viewing your content, you’ll inevitably come across your content on sites that you do not want it distributed on. This could include tube sites, clip sites, forums, etc. Contacting the webmaster yourself can sometimes work to get your content removed, but not always. Not only does it not always work, but it can be very time consuming. There are sites out there that will do all of the work for you. Many of these sites have different plan levels for you to choose from. With the cheaper plans, you have to find the pirated content yourself and then they will handle the takedown. With plans that cost a bit more money, they will handle absolutely everything for you, including finding the pirated content on search engines, tube sites, and even social media and then going through the steps to have it removed.

Having stolen content of yours distributed on various sites throughout the internet can possibly take away income from you. If it can be watched for free, some people might not pay for an official copy through you. Not only that, but it can also be a security risk. If you use regional blocking to block specific countries, states/provinces, zip codes, etc. from viewing your content, all of those regions will be able to access it from the pirated location. It’s also important to check with the current cam site you are working with. Webcam sites like Naked.com for instance, offer free dmca takedowns for all their models, this is a huge savings in my opinion.

One of the best and most popular sites for DMCA takedown in the adult industry is Cam Model Protection. They specifically focus on DMCA takedowns for cam models. They have different packages for you to choose from based off of the services you’d like to get from them. Below is a breakdown of their services and pricing:

howareyoubb-cam-model-protection-plans

Not only can their service help while you’re currently in the industry, but it’s great for retired cam models as well to prevent family members, coworkers, potential employers, and friends from finding out what you used to do. If you’re unsure about Cam Model Protection, they offer a free trial membership. You’ll have full access to all of their features so you can test them out and see if it’s right for you. You can even have your fans donate towards your monthly fee!

You can also use dmca.com for your takedowns. They only charge $10/month, but you pay per takedown. Each takedown costs $199. So depending on the amount of takedowns per month, Cam Model Protection will probably be the best option.

Sometimes you may find your content online, but a DMCA takedown isn’t always the best solution. A site like Live Cam Clips is a good example of this. If you want your content completely removed, they will do it for you. But whenever someone submits one of your live cam shows to their site, they always put a link back to your camming profile. If that isn’t enough for you, or if you feel like too many of your clips are being shared for free, they offer another solution. You can submit one or even a few cam shows that you choose and edit down yourself (they can be teasers that stop when things start to get intense, or even a full cam show). Whenever someone submits one of your cam shows to their site, instead of posting the video that was submitted, they will post the video(s) that you sent them. This is a great way to get extra exposure without all of your cam shows getting leaked.

Is Myfreecams A Good Site For New Cam Models?

If you’re new to the world of camming, Myfreecams might not be the best site for you to start out on. This isn’t saying that it won’t work for some new models, but overall it makes more sense to get the hang of camming on another site before moving to MFC.

Is Myfreecams a good webcam site for beginners?

You’re free to make your own decision of course, but here are some of the reasons why I think MFC is a good choice for beginners:

When you first start out on Myfreecams, you get a “new model” tag. This will increase your traffic when you first start. Unfortunately, the tag only lasts for the first 10 hours of streaming. If you don’t get your camscore up to a decent level in those first 10 hours, you’ll notice a drastic drop in your traffic the first time you log on without your new model tag. At that point, it could take months of camming to get your score up to a level where you’ll start noticing decent, consistent traffic in your room.

Your camscore on Myfreecams determines your placement on the site, and it is hard to maintain and keep at a high enough level to keep a good-sized group of members in your room. When determining your placement, MFC only takes into consideration your camscore, nothing else. Your camscore is based on the number of tokens you earn over a certain period of time. On many other camming sites, your ranking on the site is not based on how much money you earn.

Instead, it’s based on the quality of your equipment and stream, the amount of time you spend on cam, and the number of good ratings you get. When you first start off camming, especially on a site like MFC where most shows happen in public chat, it’s hard to build up a fan base… especially in your first 10 hours. For many new models, you’re still trying to figure out how everything works on the site for at least the first few hours.

On MFC, models make much more money when they have other things to sell besides just their live cam shows: videos, pictures, customs, Snapchat, phone numbers, panties… just to mention a few. When you first start out, you’re more than likely not going to have those things ready to sell. Again, especially not in the first 10 hours of camming, which is the crucial point to raise your camscore. As a new model, you also probably won’t have a large, dedicated social media following yet either. It is definitely an advantage to already have fans who you know will support you when you first start off on a site like MFC.

It makes much more sense to start off on a site like Streamate for at least the first few months of camming. Streamate does not rank you on the amount of money you earn. Instead, your rank is determined by the factors I mentioned before (quality of your equipment and stream, the amount of time you spend on cam, and the number of good ratings you get). It doesn’t matter if you hardly make any money your first few hours on cam, your rank will still increase the longer you spend streaming, if you have HD equipment, and if you have a fast internet connection. This means you can take as long as you need to learn the ropes, get comfortable camming, build a following, and work on other items to sell (videos, pictures, etc.).

Another thing about your camscore on Myfreecams, is that you have to remain consistent if you want to keep your camscore at a certain level or have it increase. Having just a couple of slow days, or even hours when you’re new can really lower your score and drastically drop your rank. To keep things interesting and fun for fans, most models on MFC play games. But when you’re a new model still trying to figure out how the site works, it can be very difficult to juggle everything at once. Between chatting, performing, entertaining, figuring out games, putting everything together correctly, and just being nervous, it’s almost an impossible task to handle everything when you’re just getting started.

There are no do-overs on Myfreecams. Once you create your account, that is the account you’re stuck with. So if you mess up in your first several hours of camming, you cannot delete it and create a new account to start fresh with the new model tag again. You may have to spend months of camming to increase your camscore to a level that earns you enough money to make this your full-time job.

I don’t want this to seem like I’m bashing MFC, because that is not the case at all! Myfreecams is one of the top cam sites out there. They have many great features and host some of the top-grossing cam models. They just might not be right for a new model to jump into until she learns the ropes elsewhere.

SextPanther Review

How SextPanther.com Works

SextPanther is a site/app where your fans can chat with you by phone calls or text messages. Below I rate them in several different categories, giving them a score in each category out of 10. Out of 60 possible points, I gave them 51/60, with an average score of 8.5. The only category that they didn’t excel in was geo-blocking because they don’t offer any form of regional blocking.

How Much Experience Do You Have With The Site?
I actually just started using SextPanther last week.

Features 10/10:
SextPanther can be used to chat with your fans via phone calls and/or text messages. You set all of your own prices and your fans are charged per minute for phone calls and per message for texts/picture messages. You can also choose to charge for the initial purchase of your phone number, or have that set to free. If it’s free, anyone can connect with you, but they will still have to pay to actually chat with you.

It’s a good marketing strategy to set your phone number to free for a couple of reasons. When you have a free number, a blue banner is placed across your profile picture to let potential customers know your number is free. This helps draw attention to your account. The other reason why it’s good to have your number free is because more customers will connect to you, and once connected you are able to not only initiate chat with them, but also see how many credits they have on the site.

As I just mentioned, if a customer connects with you, you’re able to contact them. You won’t get paid unless they respond, but it doesn’t hurt to take a few seconds out of your day to initiate something. It may lead to you chatting with someone who comes back over and over again. To make it simple for you to connect with everyone at once, SextPanther has a mass message function.

You can send either a mass text message or mass picture message to everyone on your contacts list, or choose only specific users to send the message to. What I do is send out a teasing picture to all of my new connections, and then a message afterwards saying something flirty like, “Wanna see more? ūüėČ Hope to hear from you soon!”. The potential customers have to unlock the picture in order to see it. If they do open it, you get paid. So far it’s worked well and has gotten me some new fans who love to chat!

When customers visit the site, they can choose to view either porn stars or amateurs. There are some big name porn stars signed up on the site, which is a good thing. It makes the site seem more legit to guys who are viewing it for the first time. Don’t let the fact that more recognizable names are on the site make you feel like they’ll get all of the attention. Many guys would rather connect with amateurs than porn stars.

Profits & Traffic 8/10:
I’m still very new to the site, so I haven’t noticed a lot of profit yet. With that said, there is definitely traffic on the site. If you’re responsive to your messages and have your prices set at a reasonable amount, customers will connect and chat with you. It of course helps to promote your SextPanther account on social media so your current fans can find you. SextPanther is also very involved with their social media accounts. They frequently retweet you if you tag them in a post. They also do a lot of shout-outs throughout the day.

Ease Of Using & Navigating The Site 10/10:
The site is beyond easy to use. Not only can you view and reply to your text messages on your computer, but you also get text messages and picture messages sent to your phone. When you’re on a computer, you can find everything you need from your dashboard. There’s a list of everyone who’s connected with you (this list can be sorted by most recent, new clients, alphabetically, or by the amount of credits they currently have), detailed descriptions of your earnings, a button to turn your phone call availability on or off, and an easy way to adjust your prices. From your dashboard you can also check all of your messages, reply via text message or picture message, and send out mass messages.

Payments & Cashouts 8/10:
On SextPanther, you keep different percentages for different things. Payouts are 55% for text/picture messages, 75% for phone calls, and 80% for tips. Currently you can only choose from a mailed check or direct deposit into your bank account. If you want to do direct deposit, you will have to send them a voided check to get it set up.

Pay periods are from the 1st of the month to the 15th and the 16th to the end of the month. Payments are sent out 3-5 business days after the end of each pay period as long as the minimum payout has been met. The minimum payout is $20 for both check and direct deposit.

When you sign up on the site, the default payment is set to a mailed check. If you want to do direct deposit, you will have to email support to get that set up. On the site itself, there is not really any details about how payments work. I had to contact support for all of this information.

Privacy Protection & Geo-Blocking 5/10:
As with most adult phone service sites, there is no regional blocking. This means that anyone who visits the site has the potential of finding you. For models who prefer to block their country, state, province, etc. from viewing their adult work, this will be a problem and the site is probably not for you.

As far as keeping your personal information private, I haven’t experienced any issues. I also haven’t read of anyone ever complaining that any personal information was leaked from the site. So there is no worry there.

Customer Service & Support 10/10:
Their customer service and support team is probably the best I’ve ever seen! When I first signed up with them, they contacted me and had my account approved within hours. Later that day I had a couple questions about the site and they wrote me back within an hour! Just yesterday I contacted them again with a question and I got a response in 4 minutes and they answered everything I had asked. They’re also on top of their Twitter account. I made a promo post on my Twitter the other day and tagged them in it. Within one minute they had already retweeted it!

Overview:
Overall I’m really liking SextPanther so far. I like the way the site is setup both on the models end and the customers end. Everything is easy to use and explained well. The site is set up in a way where prices are very upfront to potential customers, making it more trustworthy.

Extralunchmoney Review

Ready for some Extra Lunch Money?

Extralunchmoney, or ELM, is a website where you can sell many different adult services. You can sell premade content, custom content, tangible goods, cam shows, your Snapchat, your phone number, pretty much anything you can think of! Below I rate them in several different categories, giving them a score in each category out of 10. Out of 60 possible points, I gave them 51/60, with an average score of 8.5. They excelled in all categories except regional blocking.

How Much Experience Do You Have With The Site?
I’ve been on Extralunchmoney for a little over 3 years.

Features 9/10:
Extralunchmoney has a lot of great features, which is why it’s one of my favorite sites to work on! Scoping out the Requests page is on my daily “to do” list. Buyers list different custom content they’re looking for, and you can choose to accept the request if it’s something you’re interested in. Besides listing the details of the request, the buyer lists how much they’re willing to pay for it. Sometimes they’ll mention in the description whether or not the credits are negotiable. If they don’t mention anything like that, I will sometimes still say I can do the request. Then if they contact me and are interested in me doing it, I just say that I was hoping the credits could be negotiable and tell them my price along with why it’s worth it for them to pay extra for the quality I can offer.

On ELM, you’re able to list pretty much anything you want for sale: premade videos and pictures, custom content, panties and other tangible goods, Skype shows, Snapchat, etc! The possibilities are endless! You are able to set all of your own prices, up to 200 credits for products and jobs. Once approved, you can choose to have your product automatically tweeted out so your fans on social media know that you just listed a new product. When members of ELM are searching on the site, they will easily be able to find your items by using filters when they’re searching for what they want.

Once you have a product listed, you can put it on sale. You can offer only a certain number of that item for the sale price, or make it unlimited. This comes in handy for teaser videos and pictures. You can list them as 1 credit and then put them on sale for 1 credit off. Aside from that item being listed on the Photos page, it’s now also listed on the Sales page, which customers frequent more often looking for good deals. Something that I do that earns me extra money is listing my Snapchat to be purchased for every specific month. And then come the 15th of the month, I put a 50% off sale on it. I get a lot of extra sign-ups when it’s half off, and many of those customers buy it again for months to come.

When working with a buyer on a custom request, it’s best to use the escrow system that ELM offers. The buyer starts the escrow for the amount you two agreed on, you deliver the product(s) through the escrow message, the buyer reviews it, and then approves the escrow once both parties are satisfied. This protects both you and the buyer from getting ripped off. And if the buyer takes an abnormally long time to approve the escrow, you are able to go in and approve it yourself. This should be used as a last resort only if the buyer comes unresponsive.

Similar to other adult phone sites, Extralunchmoney offers an anonymous, pay-per-text service. You connect your phone number through ELM and they use an anonymous number for both you and your customer so no one’s real phone number is ever given out. You set your own prices per text message received. SMS or picture messages also work with their service.

ELM also promotes your live cam shows if you’re a model on Myfreecams. They plan on promoting more cam sites in the future, but for now only girls on MFC are listed.

Profits & Traffic 9/10:
Extralunchmoney uses a credit system. When you first start off on the site, you keep 60% of everything you earn. So one credit is equivalent to $0.60. Once you start selling more products and get enough positive feedback to achieve Seller Plus status, you start to keep 65%, making one credit equal to $0.65. ELM was actually a cam model resource site before becoming what they are today. Because of this, they come up often in Google searches and get a high amount of traffic.

There are of course some freeloaders and cheapskates on the site, but for the most part the buyers on the site are quality buyers. Not only are they willing to negotiate and pay higher amounts for quality products, but many of them are return customers. Out of all the sites out there to sell custom content on, I make the most amount of sales from ELM, with ManyVids coming in second. If you follow everything that they want to see in the video or pictures, and deliver quality content, those buyers will come to you again and again.

Ease Of Using & Navigating The Site 8/10:
When you first look at Extralunchmoney, it can be a bit overwhelming. The site has a lot of different tabs that will take you awhile to get used to. It can be a bit time consuming at first, but once you take the time to explore the different sections of the site, you’ll get used to where everything is. Make sure you check out every section under the Seller tab. It has a lot of useful information and helps you keep everything you’re offering on the site organized.

Payments & Cashouts 10/10:
Extralunchmoney pays out once a week on Wednesday as long as your minimum payout balance is reached. You are paid for the amount made in the previous week, not the current week. They offer several different payout options: check by mail, ACH/bank tranfer, wire transfer, or Paxum. Once issued, check generally take 5-10 days to get delivered to your mailbox. ACH/bank transfers usually take 2-5 days to post, wire transfers take 1-2 days, and Paxum is immediate. Checks and ACH/bank transfers cost 5 credits per cashout, wire transfers are 20 credits if you’re in the United States or 40 credits for international transfers. Paxum has no extra cost associated with it thought ELM.

Checks, ACH/bank transfers, and Paxum all have a minimum payout of 40 credits. Wire transfers minimum payout is 55 credits in the United States or 105 credits internationally.

Privacy Protection & Geo-Blocking 5/10:
This is the one category that Extralunchmoney lacks in. As far as keeping your real name, address, phone number, and that kind of information secure, they excell. But if you’re concerned about regional blocking, ELM might not be for you. They do not offer any form of regional blocking. This means that you aren’t able to block specific countries, states, zip codes, etc. from viewing your profile or content that you’re selling on the site. They do however allow you to block specific users, but that’s not nearly as effective as full regional blocking.

Customer Service & Support 10/10:
Extralunchmoney has great customer support. Whenever I’ve needed to contact them about something, they responded back in a timely manner and were very knowledgeable. They always helped me through any situation I was having trouble with.

Overview:
‚ÄčOverall Extralunchmoney is a great site for selling your adult services and products on! It is one of my personal favorites, and one of the most profitable sites I use. Their vast amount of features make it a good option for almost any amateur model.

Adult Friendly Payment Options

Webcam Payment Options

In the adult industry, there are several different payout options that you can choose from that are adult-friendly. The main ways to get paid in the adult industry are through Payoneer, Paxum, by check, wire transfer, or CMB¬†paycard. When cashing out on various cam sites, clip sites, etc. most give you multiple options for how you get paid. With that said, you still may encounter several sites that only offer one payout option that works for you. When first getting started, it isn’t a bad idea to sign-up on the different payment processor sites so you’ll be able to get paid quickly if you end up having to use one.

The first site is Payoneer. Payoneer is becoming increasingly more popular in the adult industry. Many of the big cam sites, such as Myfreecams¬†and Streamate allow you to choose Payoneer as your cashout option. Payoneer is a good option whether you live in the United States, or are an international model. Basically, they set you up with a prepaid card that you can load money on. It works just like a regular bank card, and can be used to make regular purchases at the store, or to withdraw money from an ATM. There aren’t many fees associated with Payoneer. But every funding source that you link in sets their own fees for loading payments. Some sites don’t charge anything, some may charge a small $2.00 fee for a standard 24-hour payment, or $5.00 for expedited 2-hour payment. When you choose to get paid on a site by Payoneer, that site will appear on your Funding Sources page. From there you’ll be able to view any fees associated with using them.

Paxum is another great, adult-friendly option. Again, it’s easy to get started with them and there aren’t many fees associated with cashing out. Paxum is very similar to PayPal, except you won’t get your account shut down for using them for adult like you would with PayPal. If you have your own website, you can make a storefront and put custom Buy Now buttons below your items. When clicked on, your fans will be taken to a page where they can pay for your item(s) via Paxum. You can also use Paxum to charge for Skype shows. Paxum is the perfect option for independent models looking for an adult-friendly payment processor.

Most cam and clip sites will also allow you to cashout via check or wire transfer. Getting paid by check generally has smaller fees, or no fees at all. Most sites send out checks to models in the United States for no fees, and with small minimum payouts. International check by mail is available on many sites to select countries. Again there is generally no fee, but the minimum payout is higher. If you want to connect your bank account so that payments can be deposited directly into your account, you can use a wire transfer. On many sites, wire transfers are available whether you’re in the United States or an international model. Generally the minimum payout is very high for a wire transfer. I’ve seen it range from $200 all the way to $1000 on some sites. The cashout fee is usually higher with a wire or bank transfer as well.

If you’re using a cam site such as Naked, you can choose to get paid via CMB Paycard. They make it really easy to sign-up and link your model account directly to your CMB account. The fees associated with CMB Paycard are very minimal. Like a Payoneer card, your CMB Paycard can be used at any ATM or bank location to withdraw your funds. You can also use it for electronic billpay.

Selling Tangible Goods

Selling tangible goods on webcam

‚ÄčSelling tangible goods is an easy way to earn extra money. ‚ÄčThere are so many of your personal items that guys are going to be willing to buy. Whether it be used panties, toys, stockings, autographed photos, heels, baked goods, etc., there is a market for pretty much anything you can think of!

There are several different ways to go about selling tangible goods. The first way is through your own website. Often times you’ll earn a higher percentage when selling items on your own website than you will if you sell it on other sites. It helps to post a few pictures of the item so your fans know exactly what they’re getting. If you’re selling an item that you wore or used in a video or photoset, you can reference that content. You can also use your blog or social media accounts to promote the items you’re selling.

It’s always a good idea to sell your items on as many sites as possible. This will gain you exposure and increase your odds of making sales. There are lots of different sites that offer the ability for you to sell your tangible goods on. ManyVids, CamModelStore, and¬†ExtraLunchMoney¬†are some of the big ones right now. On these sites, you can upload pictures of your items and add a description if you want. You keep 60% on ManyVids, 80% on CamModelStore, and 60%-65% on ExtraLunchMoney.

Some camming networks, such as Myfreecams and Chaturbate¬†let you sell your items on their site. You can list your products on your profile page, as well as mention during your live cam shows that you have items for sale. Some fans will pay for the panties or toys that you use that day on cam if you mention that they’re available for purchase.

When listing your items for sale, you’ll want to include as many details as possible. Several pictures from different angles or pictures of you personally using the item is a great way to show the condition the item is in and exactly what it looks like. You should also mention how the item comes. Basically if you clean the items before shipping or send them “used” (worn for a certain number of days, played in, stuffed, perfumed, etc.). Giving the customer the option of how they want to item to come is a good idea too. That way whoever purchases it can have it to their liking. Also be sure to include any sizing info, defects, and what countries you’re willing to ship to. You can also mention that you charge extra for international shipping.

There are so many different items that you can sell for profit. Be creative. Give different items a try and see what sells. It can’t hurt to try! Make sure you list your items on multiple sites in order to get the most exposure. And be sure to include pictures and descriptions of the items you’re selling. Good luck!

ChatStar Review

My review on Chatstar

ChatStar provides models a secure way for their fans to sext and call them. Below I rate them in several different categories, giving them a score in each category out of 10. Out of 60 possible points, I gave them 49/60, with an average score of 8.16. They excelled in their overall features, navigation, payouts, and customer service.

How Much Experience Do You Have With The Site?
I’ve been on ChatStar for about 9 months.

Features 9/10:
ChatStar allows models to communicate with their fans via phone calls, SMS (text messages) and MMS (sending/receiving pics/vids via text messages). Your actual phone number is never revealed to your fans. Instead they use a forwarding system so your real phone number is kept private.

You’re able to decide what services you want to offer and what you want your rate to be for each service. You can set up your own pricing for the initial purchase of your phone number, price per minute for phone calls, the price for a fan to text you per message, the price for when you text a fan back per message, when your fan sends you a MMS, and when you send them a MMS.

ChatStar has done some marketing research and found out that if you set your phone number rate to free (for the initial purchase of your phone number), you’re more likely to get fans in your network, which increases your chances of converting fans into paid fans! They still pay your normal per message or per minute rate, but they don’t have to pay for the initial purchase of your number. If you set your phone number to free, you also get a “Get My # For Free” badge on your profile picture. Fans are more likely to view your profile when they see that badge.

Profits & Traffic 6/10:
If you take the time to advertise on your social media accounts that you use ChatStar, the earning potential can be great! ChatStar’s own social media accounts have been inactive for a while now, so don’t expect a shout-out from them. Whatever traffic you get will either come from you doing the work yourself by blasting it on social media (the main way) or from organic site traffic, which isn’t the best in the sexting/adult phone call market.

To increase your profits, check out some of the prices that other models have set. If you set yours too high, customers are gonna move on to the next girl who has cheaper pricing, but offers the same kinds of things you do.

Ease Of Using & Navigating The Site 10/10:
The site is incredibly easy to use and navigate. They make everything very simple for you to find, and do a good job explaining everything. The few tabs that they have are very self-explanatory and to the point. On just six different pages, you can navigate through everything you need.

Payments & Cashouts 10/10:
You keep 60% on the site and payments are sent out weekly, every Thursday. Pay periods are from Monday to Sunday which are paid out on the following Thursday. They provide you with a transaction list so you can see the fan that’s paying you, what the payout amount is per interaction, and the time of the interaction. They also have an Earnings History page which breaks down your payments by week.

Privacy Protection & Geo-Blocking 4/10:
From everything I’ve seen on the site, they do not offer any form of regional blocking. This may be a problem for some models who want to block a certain state or country from being able to find out their profession.

From different comments I’ve seen on various forums, some models are skeptical about the sign-up process due to privacy issues. When you sign-up for ChatStar, you put in a very minimal amount of information. After signing-up, a representative from the site will email you asking for the rest of your information (ID, headshot, social media accounts, etc.). This isn’t the best practice, since it may seem sketchy to some. But I personally haven’t had any problems, and my account was set up without any personal info getting leaked. I’ve also never heard any models who are actually on the site complain.

As far as your actual phone number goes, that is protected by ChatStar. They use anonymous proxy numbers in order to relay communication between you and your fans. One VERY important thing you need to check if you are accepting phone calls is your voicemail message. Make sure your voicemail does NOT mention your phone number! If you miss a call from a ChatStar customer and they’re taken to your voicemail, you don’t want them to hear your actual phone number.

Customer Service & Support 10/10:
When you first sign-up, not only do they quickly contact you via email with general information about the site, but they also set you up with some promotional graphics. They’ll usually pull a couple pictures from your Instagram, and jazz them up a bit with the ChatStar logo and the link to your profile page.

Overview:
ChatStar is a decent site overall as long as you’re willing to work for it. Like I mentioned earlier, the organic traffic that they generate could be better, so the majority of your fans are going to come from you directing them there. The services they offer are great though if you’re looking to get into sexting and/or adult phone calls. They make it quick and easy for you to get started on the site.

Please do not copy my site!

Thanks,
