Frequently Asked Questions
What Are The Requirements To Be A Webcam Model?
The main requirement to become an adult webcam model is that you be at least 18 years old or older. After that, you will need a modern computer, an external webcam (preferably an HD webcam such as the Logitech C920, C930e, or BCC950), and a fast internet connection. You will also need a private space where you can work and good lighting in your workspace.
How Much Money Can I Make As A Webcam Model?
The amount of money you earn will depend on how often you broadcast and how hard you work to build a following. Most camgirls will average anywhere from $100 to $300 per day working about 4 hours, or 24 hours per week. Many cam models work 40 or more hours per week and make thousands per day. Some models consistently earn more than $100,000 every month! The key is to have a consistent schedule and to hustle on social media to build your following. Be engaging & have fun!
What Are My Privacy Options?
All of the top cam sites will give you the ability to block specific states or countries from being able to see your webcam feed. Most sites let you block any US states, but some only allow entire countries to be blocked. It’s a good idea to block the regions where you’re from or have lived . This feature will greatly reduce the chances that someone who knows you will recognize you. Be sure to compare the privacy features at the various cam sites.
How Do I Get Paid and How Often?
You will have several different options to get paid as a webcam model. Most models in the US will be able to get paid via direct deposit. Some of the other popular payment methods include Paxum (non-US only), or a paper check. You will get paid weekly or biweekly, depending on which site you are on. We recommend that you compare the payment detail at all the various cam sites you’re considering joining.
What Are The Basic Rules To Follow As A Webcam Model?
The basic rules for webcam models can vary with each site but are pretty straightforward:
1) You should not be rude to clients or other models.
2) Do not do anything which is illegal in your area.
3) Do not drink excessive alcohol or use drugs on cam.
4) Do not give out your personal contact or payment information to clients.
5) Do not allow anyone else to appear in your shows without prior approval from the site you are working on.
6) No extreme sex acts such as fisting.
Do I Have To Get Naked On Cam?
No. You are not required to do nude shows or do anything you are not comfortable with. Many cam models make a very nice income with non-nude cam modeling. While you can earn more money with nude shows, if you choose to do non-nude camming, just specify this fact in your bio page on the cam site so your viewers will know what to expect. There is a market for flirty tease shows. Models can do anything in their shows from dancing, booty shaking, hulu-hooping, really anything you want to do that’s fun and interesting for your viewers. We recommend you visit different sites and browse their non-nude / hot flirt categories to learn more.
Can Other People Appear With Me On Cam?
Yes, with prior approval. Once their age is verified, you can have others on cam with you. In fact, there is a huge demand for couples to perform live sex shows. Couples have said that when they perform together, they can make way more money than if they had each performed alone. Not every site allows men or couples, so be sure to check with each site you’re interested in working on. We recommend Chaturbate if you’re new to doing couples shows.
Will My Income Be Reported To The IRS?
Yes. You will receive a 1099 form to file your taxes as an independent contractor. If you work several sites or if it gets too complicated, we recommend getting help from a tax professional. Keep your finances straight and you will be able to earn long-term income from your modeling career.
