How Webcam Girls Make Money

Now that the internet has made it possible for anyone to make and sell porn from their homes, webcam modeling or “camming” has become a very profitable profession. So, how do webcam girls make money?


Tipping Systems for Webcam Girls

The large network of camming websites allows amateur pornographers to upload explicit videos or perform live for a chatroom audience. These kinds of websites use a “tipping” system that lets viewers pay to see certain sex shows. In the chatroom, there is a tipper leaderboard displayed and top tipper is getting a show.

Virtual Tokens

Cam websites have a reward system for regulars. They list big spenders as the webcam girls’ “favorites”. This system applies a soft competitive pressure on everyone to keep spending. Viewers pay using virtual tokens which the website converts into dollars.

Webcam Girls’ Gift Wishlists

There is a great possibility to earn a lot of money working as a Camgirl. Webcam girls can make in an hour what most people earn in a week. Many models also have Amazon-like wishlists where fans can go and buy them things.

Risks from Working as a Webcam Girl

Camming work mostly includes independence and working in a safe place. However, webcam girls are performing for a large online audience. Sometimes, they receive blackmail or threats for performing acts they are not comfortable with. Another threat comes from the internet “trolls” who try to identify camgirls and ruin their lives just for the fun of it. Eventually, you’ll learn your way around them.

Privacy Concerns

The conclusion is that working as a webcam girl can bring you a lot of fun and a great income but you will have to be very careful when it comes to your privacy. And like any other job, it has a good and a bad sides. So if you find yourself in this business, we wish you to be the best!

    Soft competitive pressure? Please! I saw a cam girl once perform a show in which a guy was spending literally hundreds of dollars to make her lush toy vibrate and making her orgasm. That time I was able to count more than $3000 in tips just from 1 guy.
    Back to your article I see that there is actually no actual reference as how a girl makes her money. You say that one girl can make in 1 hour what many people earn in a week. But here you are talking about the la creme de la creme of webcam girls. Most girls struggle to get a customer sometimes.
    If I take stramate again for example, I see that if a girl is chargin 1.99 /min she takes about $6 from a 10- minute show. In this case the website takes home the bigger profits.
    So in this case, depending on the rate of the cam girl, she could work 1 or 2 hours and make what someone earning a decent living does in 1 day of work.
