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.
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.
Overall 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.
