Overview and Tips

Chaturbate is a fantastic freemium cam site, but it's tip-based nature requires some adjusting. Don't bank on getting invited to private chats very often. Instead, try to be as sensual and enticing as you can in the open chat. Build up your persona and fan base, keep the free chat engaging and you'll make a name for yourself in no time.

Also, remember that Chaturbate doesn't have c2c, and setting up a cam2cam show on Chaturbate requires a bit of work. Familiarize yourself with the process so you can offer it to those interested in it. You can charge them extra on top of it being a private chat, so it's a good way to make money and create returning customers and start making some serious money.

On that note, know that you get 5 US cents per token received in tips, meaning that you make around 62% commission. Be aware that there is a minimum amount required to get a payout. The minimum amount you need to earn to receive payment depends on the payment method you choose.

  • Check by mail has a minimum payment of $50.00
  • Paxum has a minimum payment of $100.00
  • Check by Fedex has a minimum payment of $200.00

That is the amount that you need to earn to see any money at all, because, otherwise, you don't get paid. Don't worry, though; You won't be working for free.  If you do not earn the minimum amount required within a pay period, your balance will roll over into the next pay period until the minimum is achieved. Payments are sent twice each month. You will receive them within 7 days of the 15th and the last day of the month.

Once you become a successful performer and start making some real money, you may choose a higher minimum payment in order to receive larger payouts (meaning you make more commission). Minimum payments can be changed at any time by contacting Chaturbate's support.

Finally, pay close attention to the sixth step listed above. Apps and bots can increase member engagement by increasing interactivity (such as with tip-controlled sex toys, if you have one) or create fun games for your audience to play (paid for with tips). Updating your bio can help your fans get to know you better and promotes attachment. Settings and privacy can help you stay anonymous in your home country by banning people who live there, and help you better regulate who sees you and which demographic will be most aware of you when you're online. Use these tools carefully, and you might just make this into a lucrative career.
