How can I earn money on Stripchat.com?

There are several ways to earn money:

1. Get tips for your shows
User tipping

Members are allowed to send tokens as tips during public shows. They tip the models as a sign of appreciation for them sharing their shows and for answering requests. Users are not required to give a model tips.

2. Earn from private shows
Invitation for Private

A private show costs 24 tokens ($1.2) per minute by default. However, this price can be changed at https://stripchat.com/settings (from 16 to 120 tokens per minute). A viewer can request a private show from any model, but it is up to the models to decide who they will go into a private room with. In the private room, the model does a special show for ONLY ONE viewer. The private show can be ended at any time, by any of the two parties, or automatically when the viewer runs out of tokens.

3. Earn from spying members

All models have the ability to earn from spying members in private shows. This function allows other members to spy on a private show by paying a default price of 8 tokens ($0.4) for a minute of spying. This price can be changed at https://stripchat.com/settings. spying members are not allowed to write comments or demand shows. They can watch as long as they have tokens available. Once they run out of tokens, they will not be able to watch until they buy more. Spying is less expensive for the members, but models who allow spying are listed on one of the pages in the top menu:https://stripchat.com/tag/spy. Each spying member pays less, but you can have more members spying at the same time.

4. Earn from Cam2Cam
Invitation for Cam2Cam

Cam2Cam is a one-on-one cam show, where a model and a member can see each other. It costs 32 tokens ($1.6) per minute by default. However, this price can be changed at https://stripchat.com/settings(from 32 up to 120 tokens per minute). Any viewer with tokens can request a Cam2Cam show from a model, but it is up to the models to decide who they will go into a private room with.

Technical Questions

How can I start chatting?

Before you start, make sure that you have:

• a fast internet connection, such as cable internet or DSL, with upload speed of at least 2 Mbps. Broadcasting will work with slower upload speeds, but the quality of your stream would be questionable.

• keep closed all unnecessary applications such as Skype, browsers, torrents, etc. These two segments are extremely important. You will earn less cash and your rating could be lowered due to a poor internet connection.

• browser with Adobe Flash Player, cookies and javascript enabled (We recommend the latest version of Chrome, Firefox or Safari)

• a webcam with a built-in microphone or a webcam + standalone microphone.

• In order to have a clear understanding of the rules to broadcast as a model please read our Terms of Services: https://stripchat.com/terms and Broadcasting Rules: https://stripchat.com/top/rules before you start.

What camera splitter is the most suitable to broadcast correctly?

There are a lot of splitters that can be used (but make sure you select the resolution what we use on our site), however, one stands out among all splitters: http://very-soft.com/product/webcamsplitter due to the high flexibility and options to broadcast.

How to clear the cache cookies of my browser?

It is very useful to avoid glitches, therefore it is strongly recommended to do it before starting each time to broadcast.

My webcam is not functioning properly, what can I do?

There can be a number of reasons:

1. Lagging:

Make sure you use cable and not WiFi, WiFi might not provide enough stability for streaming.

Your processor might be overloaded by running too many unnecessary programs or browser tabs. Close all programs and browser tabs that are not necessary for you to work.

Flash downloads and installs a lot of temporary files, which can slow down your browser. Every week, make sure you clear the cache cookies of your browser.

2. Slow/blurry image: this is due to incorrect camera settings, make sure you do not make drastic changes whenever you adjust the camera's settings.

3. Pixelated image, wrong aspect ratio: this is due to the different resolution selected in the splitter compared to what you stream on the site. Always use the same resolution as what you have selected on Stripchat.

4. Blank camera feed: If your visitors cannot see your camera image, then stop broadcasting, wait 2 minutes, refresh the page (by pressing F5 / FN + F5 on the keyboard) and start broadcasting again.

5. Black camera feed: No camera device is selected as a source in your splitter. Make sure that the splitter you use is exactly the same as the camera device you have selected before starting to broadcast.
