Frequently Asked Questions

Everything You Need To Know About Webcam Modeling

What is webcam modeling?

Webcam modeling is a safe and fun way to make money online while expressing your creativity and personality. Webcam models earn from home, set their own schedules, and cam as much as they want. Imagine logging on and being greeted by fans who are eager to pay good money just to talk to you--that’s serious star power.

Who can apply?

Anyone and everyone (18 years or older, of course). Women, men, couples, and transgender models ages 18 and up have the potential to earn lots of money camming from home. Our community celebrates diversity, and we love helping models of all genders, ethnicities, and nationalities become online stars, as well as encouraging couples who want to model together.

Do you accept male models?

Of course! Some guys are intimidated by the webcam modeling industry because they think it’s all about the girls. While female webcam models are a large part of the industry, male webcam models are in hot demand. Not all webcam sites recruit male models, but we value our guys as much as our gals.

What about fetish models?

Alternative webcam models and fetish webcam models are definitely encouraged to apply. Online fetish modeling is a great way for mistresses, doms, and other fetish professionals to maximize their income. Many fetish models choose to cam from home in order to provide an additional way to connect with their existing clientele—while building their fan base.

What if my application is denied?

Serious applicants are almost always approved. When a model application is declined, it is usually because we do not feel the model is a good fit for our site. A lot of times, this is due to poor photos. When you upload photos, please make sure that they are clear, well lit, and look like the photo on your ID.

How much money can I make?

You can make lots of money modeling online, and how much you make depends on how often you broadcast. The more hours you put in, the greater your earning potential. Models can make anywhere from $50-$10,000 in a pay period. We know this is a very wide range. Keep in mind that our top earning models have been broadcasting for years, but many of our new models make $1,000-$5,000 per week within just a few months.

As a new performer, you’ll have a great opportunity to attract the attention of our large customer base. Our customers are always on the lookout for new models to spoil!

How do I get paid?

We offer three convenient payment methods for models: Wire transfer, Payoneer, or a mailed check. Payment is made every two weeks.

What about taxes?

Good news! We don’t take taxes out of your earnings. For models in the United States who earn over $1.00 in a given year, we send out MISC-1099 forms before your taxes are due, which is standard.

Can I cam with multiple webcam sites?

Technically, yes. We do not stop models from broadcasting with other sites, and don’t believe in inhibiting a models’ career by binding them to an exclusivity contract. That being said, top webcam models are performers who commit to camming with us alone and put in regular hours. Inconsistent broadcasting makes it hard for your fans to get in touch with you, and limits your ability to become a top earner. It’s also very hard to concentrate on multiple chat rooms at once, which makes it difficult to give fans your full attention. You will find the same is true on every webcam site.

Do you offer an affiliate or referral program?

Yes. Our Member Bonus Program offers models a great opportunity to earn even more money. When models bring new customers to the site, they are paid double the lifetime credits of what those customers spend on them. The program also offers a percentage based bonus for all guest users a model converts to regular customers. We also offer a traditional revenue sharing program for models who have their own websites!

I already have a website. Can I still cam with you?

Absolutely. Along with our revenue sharing program for established models, we offer a plugin solution for models who wish to broadcast members-only shows through their pay sites or websites. Camming is a great way to provide a more intimate experience for your members.

I’m interested in other forms of modeling. Can you help with that?

We love it when models are eager to turn their webcam presence into an adult modeling career. Webcam models often become some of the most successful glamour models and adult actors. We offer our models maximum online exposure through an unparalleled amount of traffic sources. Models are also able to star in their own online videos, get creative with photosets, and even start their own fan clubs!

Is modeling online safe?

Webcam modeling is one of the safest ways to make money from home. Since no in-person interaction is necessary with any of your fans, you don’t run the same risks associated with other kinds of modeling work and adult jobs. Our policy ensures that we will never give out a model’s personal information to any users.

How do I protect my privacy?

Privacy blocking enables a model to block any state or country they wish. This prevents viewers in blocked areas from accessing your live webcam performances and profile. State and country blocking is optional, although many webcam models find that it helps them feel more comfortable online so they can focus on having fun.

What if I live outside of the U.S.?

We have models from all across the globe who make money camming. If you have a good webcam and a reliable internet connection, we want you to join our global community of webcam stars!
