There are so many site that are offering untold riches if you are daring enough to bare all on cam.

A site where users can sign up and start broadcasting in about 2 minutes (We kid you not!)

Make money onlineWe are not broadcasting at this time, nor have we made any money yet as a broadcaster, but there are plenty of options to configure as much or as little as you like. With a basic account you can sign up and get online very fast as a broadcaster, and even faster as consumer of adult entertainment. We looked at one of the top cammers on the site when we visited and at the time we saw them online they had over 10000 viewers! Pretty impressive for a very basic profile page. It was just two girls showering and they managed to pull in a boatload of tokens in the time they were online. One guy tipped 3000 tokens. We worked that out to be around 150 USD. This is in addition to all the other tokens they got from other users. Which brings us to…


How do you make money?

Tokens. Its the currency online for any webcam site. Chaturbate is no different. They sell the tokens to users for about 11 USD for 100 tokens. Performers make around 50% of that spend. Users “Tip” for general online behaviors. They can also pay for private shows and these costs and services offered are set by the performers. payment is on a tokens per minute basis.

There are also ways to encourage your viewers to pay by having games and “tip limits” for example, you can offer to do things like getting naked at 500 tokens, sex toys at 1000 or whatever you think your users will like and pay you for. There seem to be no shortage of tippers.

Any earnings you get are paid to you in the form of cheque or bank deposit or online services like Paxum. There is a minimum payment limit of 50 USD for payout but even an average performer is going to make that in no time.

Is it worth it? 

Will it make you rich overnight? Of course not, and like anything it will take effort to get started up and make money. But we think that if you find your niche then you could make some real money. Its a simple business model that anyone can set up and start in a short time with a minimum outlay. All you need is a PC, a webcam and an internet connection and you are ready to make money in less time than it took to read this article.  What are you waiting for, go make money!
