Becoming a cam model is a great option if you’re looking for ways to earn extra money. It can become your primary source of income quickly if you know where to look and work on your charisma. However, when you’re just starting, it can be a bit overwhelming to choose a cam site where you can perform with no problems.
There are thousands of websites you can choose from to start your webcam modeling career, and they all offer something different. Many websites offer different perks for beginners to boost their popularity when they’ve just started, while in others, you have to grow all by yourself. That doesn’t mean those websites are bad, though; it means you probably will have to spend more time trying to build yourself there. However, it’s never bad to perform in more than one cam site; it will make you earn more money in the long run.
We have gathered some of the best paying cam sites you can choose to start modeling whenever you want. The websites we’ll mention offer a lot of versatility when it comes to payment, as well as an excellent user experience. Now, let’s get to know the best websites you can use to start your cam performing journey!
StripChat is an excellent option for beginners. If you’re looking to squeeze as much juice as possible during your first weeks, this website makes it very much more accessible. Models get up to 60% rev share, which is a standard percentage in most cam websites. But that isn’t the best part; newbies are eligible for a site placement boost during their first two weeks, which will help you establish a fan base quickly and start earning money even during your first days as a model.
There are many show options you can choose to start performing, but the most prominent one is the “freemium” shows. If you aren’t familiar with those types of shows, they are the typical cam show where you perform and get paid via tips/tokens. Many people see this as a drawback, but you can also offer Private Shows (with Spy option) to set the price per minute. Cam2Cam shows are possible in StripChat as well!
Well-placed models can earn an estimated amount of $5,890 per month and can withdraw their earnings weekly.
BongaCams is one of the best websites you can choose to start modeling. Since it is currently the second-largest cam website around the web, it has a lot of monthly traffic. More than 310 million visitors make BongaCams an excellent option for you to start performing to a broad audience right from the start.
It’s very easy to earn with the standard tips/token show on BongaCams because there are tons of people coming to see the model’s shows. Also, most BongaCams performers are very comfortable with the website and will tell you how good it is to perform there.
Most of the features are public, which means that you’re left with limited options if you want to earn through private shows or have a hard time with large crowds. Anyway, you can still earn a lot of money here, especially because BongaCams has the highest revenue share percentage of all sites, which is between 60 and 90%. Well-established models earn about $6,420 per month on this website!
Chaturbate is probably the most popular webcam site anyone can think of. It has more than 300 million visitors per month, including models, which means that the competition is hard on this website, but it’s not impossible to establish yourself here. Just like in StripChat, the most common types of shows are those where you get paid per tokens or tips, but you can also choose to perform in other types of shows.
Models that are already established here can earn a lot of money, but that takes a lot of time. We know about models that are earning about $1 million per year, but they had to work very hard to get there. Anyway, it’s not impossible to get started in Chaturbate, but you need to make sure you can pay attention to tons of people at once. It is recommended to make a great effort to become a top model on this site, but all your sweat will be worth it at the end.
Models can earn between $2,000 and $20,000 per month and can withdraw their earnings weekly. Also, you get up to 60% of the rev share!
Xcams is the highest paying cam site. They only take between 25-50 percent of what you’ve earned in your shows. It is the most popular cam site in Europe, so most of the public is from there. However, we dare to say that most models on this website are from the USA, but you can start performing from anywhere. All you need is a good internet connection, and the proper equipment to go live.
You should know that before you can gain total control over your earnings and set up, you must perform for 100 hours. After that, everything will be more accessible, and you’ll be allowed to set up your prices and everything else. When you’ve just started, you won’t earn much, but after you’ve reached the 100 hours threshold, everything will become better quickly. Most of the shows here are private, so after you gain control of your earnings, you can set up the pay-per-minute private shows price. Averagely, a model can earn up to $9,580 per month and withdraw their money every two weeks.
Camsoda is another website with excellent traffic and good revenue share (55%) for performers. It is not as great as many of the options we mention, but you can still earn a lot here because performing is not the only option you have; you can also choose to sell photos and videos, similarly to other subscription websites. It’s hard to get established here, but after you’ve gone through that, you will have a good income source.
So, think about the cam shows as a way to “promote” your photos and videos. Most people who come to this website are looking for free shows, making it harder to earn money during your first weeks. Camsoda isn’t a bad option, but it isn’t the best either.
LiveJasmin is one of the well-reviewed cam websites around the internet, as well as one of the most visited, along with Chaturbate and BongaCams. These three websites are the holy trinity, but let’s see what makes LiveJasmin so well.
LiveJasmin is an excellent option if you’re looking forward to performing in private shows rather than tips/token shows, which means you set the price per minute and can earn a high income in the long-term. With that being said, models can get between 30 and 80%, which makes it one of the best paying websites for models even if it’s one of the most visited.
LiveJasmin has a “double-dip” feature, which means you’re able to perform in more than one website at once. For example, you can start a show in LiveJasmin while at the same time you’re performing on Chaturbate or BongaCams. Performing on two different websites means you’re going to earn more money, especially if you’re doing private/spy shows.
Averagely, models can earn about $4,340 per month after they’ve established themselves in LiveJasmin. However, be aware that you are only allowed to withdraw your earnings every two weeks.
MyFreeCams is another well-known cam site where you can quickly start. However, the action is limited to only nudity. The website does not allow explicit sex on the shows. So, if you’re comfortable with only showing your body and not engaging in other activities, this website can work pretty well.
Streamate is one of the best options and has developed a great community over the years. Every person that visits this website is willing to pay money to watch models perform anything, so private shows are the central premise of Streamate. It’s a fantastic site if you want to start earning money as soon as possible. Models get a 30% revenue share, which means that an average model can earn up to $3,350 per month.
Also, be aware that models are given the freedom to set up as much privacy as they want. If you don’t want to perform publicly, you don’t have to. You can also choose only to be seen by paid members, making it even easier to start making money while being a cam performer while keeping your identity safe. It’s an excellent website for those who want to have as much control of their privacy as possible.
This is one of the oldest cam sites and has been around for more than fifteen years. It’s an excellent cam site with good traffic, and most of the people that come here are as vanilla as you can think. It pays the models up to 70% of the total amount they make on their shows. It’s a great side-option; you can perform here and in another website with no problems to maximize your earnings. Shows are paid per minute, and models can earn an average of $2,660 per month.
