Overview and Tips
Cams is an excellent camming platform for maximizing your revenue share. It offers a good percentage of the revenue and gives models lot of chat types, which gives them a good amount of freedom when it comes to the nature of your cam show and how you run it. The site (or, more accurately, StreamRay) works on a tiered system. The more tokens you get members to spend on you, the bigger your share of the revenue is.
Here’s a breakdown of the different tiers and percentages that performers can earn:
- 32% – Up to 50,000 tokens ($5,000)
- 50% – 50,001 and 60,000 tokens ($5,001 and $6,000)
- 60% – 60,001 and 100,000 tokens ($6,001 and $10,000)
- 70% – over 100,000 tokens ($10,000)
Amounts are calculated per payment period. Contests, income from the bounty program (more on that later) and any other bonus programs do not count towards the calculation in regards to the tiered income.
Now for a breakdown of the different programs, bonuses and benefits offered by StreamRay, which is henceforth referred to as Cams for the sake of clarity:
- Chargeback protection: During the 90 days after the first broadcast, you will be responsible for any chargebacks of tokens spent on you. After 90 days, Cams will bear all the chargebacks other than for tips, virtual gifts and fan club memberships.
- Make money from selling clips of past shows: Cams records selected clips from your best shows and posts them on your public account for members to access. You get paid a percentage when a member accesses these videos. This means that you can basically make money without having to lift a finger.
- Fan Clubs: At an additional monthly fee, any Cams member can get a discount when they access your premium shows, and get free access to your pre-recorded shows and photos. They will also have the ability email you at your Cams address.
