Streamate (Model application form) is a high (paying) traffic site popular amongst camgirls for that reason. As you will learn as a cam girl, not all traffic is paying traffic. To work on streamate a decent upload speed and powerful computer are vital for good placement, but provided you have the necessary equipment the site offers cam girls the best chance at a steady, good income. On Streamate you must do free chat (entertain guests in ‘free chat’ before you enter private shows), and while the site caps your rates at $4.99 per min for private and exclusive chat you can write in to site support and have your rate ceiling raised to whatever you like.
Streamate also offers a feature called ‘gold shows’, which involves the cam girl setting a gold show ‘goal’, which customers pledge towards by giving ‘gold’. Once the gold show target has been reached, every customer who pledged the goal amount enters the private ‘gold show’ with the cam girl. On Streamate 1 gold=1$ USD, of which the cam girl typically earns 35% (or 35 cents). The one exception to this is women who reside in certain Eastern European nations. Women residing in these nations only earn 30%. Gold is also a feature which allows customers to tip in free chat, although the site is much more geared towards private and exclusive shows and gold shows.
Streamate covers chargebacks and also offers a geo-blocking feature (the ability to disallow customers from selected nations/cities access to your cam room) but using this feature removes you from promotion by the site. In general cam girls tend to earn more money without the geo-blocking feature, but some cam girls use it for reasons of privacy. Streamate also allows men, transgendered and ‘couples’ camming.
On Streamate camgirls earn their income doing private shows, exclusive shows and gold shows. Tipping is offered on Streamate but the site does not have a ‘tipping culture’ as in the case of myfreecams. This means that, while tipping is an option for customers, tipping does not typically comprise a large percentage of a camgirl’s income on Streamate.
At the end of the first earning week the camgirl’s paycheck is held for three weeks, and after that point she is paid every week by check, wire, payoneer or FedEx. In order to apply to become a camgirl you must download your contract through the site signup link in order to fill it out and send it back in, and upload a scan of your government ID. You must also fill out your profile, including information on your appearance and what types of services you offer, and a profile photo.
