How To Make Money On Chaturbate [Step by Step Guide]

How does chaturbate work

You don’t have to be a glamour model to earn great money on Chaturbate Chaturbate.

I am an average girl next door and I built my way up to earning great money on Chaturbate.

And In this guide I’m going to share everything I learned from being a Chaturbate broadcaster.

The most common reason for camgirls to quit, is because they don’t know how to work the room for tips.

It took me 12 months to figure this out and find the best methods to earn the most money, in the least amount of time.

Are you ready to start working smarter and not harder? 😇

How Much Does Chaturbate Pay?

Chaturbate pays $0.05 per token ($50 for every 1000 tokens you’re tipped). This is a 50% payout. Which is standard for most cam sites. 

You will be paid twice per month, what you make between 1st-15th of the month, will be paid 2-3 days later and the second pay period is 16th-30th/31st.

There is a minimum payout of $50 on Chaturbate before you are paid.

Chaturbate offers a wide range of payout methods including:

  • CosmoPayment
  • Paxum
  • ePay Service
  • Skrill
  • Bitcoin
  • Check by mail
  • Wise Transfer
  • Direct Deposit (For US models only)

Chaturbate is very reliable with paying models, which is great as not all cam sites are.

The fact that they offer so many ways to get paid is great for models who aren’t in the US.

Although if you are not in the US, the wire transfer option does encounter a $45 processing fee. If you don’t want to pay this fee, then Paxum would be the next best option.

How To Get More Viewers On Chaturbate

This is one of the most asked questions and the answer isn’t difficult, but having patience is.

I know it’s very uncomfortable and difficult when you first become a webcam model, sitting there live on cam with under 10 people in your room. 

Trust me…..I don’t forget the awkward silences 😬.

I’m also not a patient woman and I like quick results. Not everyone would agree with the advice I’m about to give you, but it does work and it does get quick results.

After sitting in a quiet room for hours on end and walking away with 100 tokens, I tried something different.

Try This!

Guys are on Chaturbate for a sexual experience. The models doing the most explicit things are usually the models with the most views.

So I started turning up on cam naked, and I would seductively seduce the camera, sit down for a bit and chat, then do it again until my numbers were up to 100ish.

I’d have a countdown for a cum show and encourage the viewers to tip towards that.

When I first started camming the Lovense Toys didn’t exist (yes, I’ve been doing it that long 😅).

But thankfully now they do. These tip reaction vibrators made me so much money, so I recommend you get one as soon as possible.

They bring entertainment and money to the room which takes the pressure off you.

When you have a room of 50+ guys, always promote your Twitter page and get guys to follow you.

Because the next time you arrive on cam you can tweet and let them know. Doing this over the course of 3 months, you’ll find you won’t need to arrive on cam naked because your regulars will already arrive when you log on.

How Much Are Chaturbate Tokens Worth?

“The biggest Chaturbate tip is 338,000 tokens, which is a $16,900 tip for the broadcaster”

For Models 
If you are a webcam model, here is a breakdown of how much tokens will be worth to you.

TokensHow much they are worth
100 Tokens$5
1000 Tokens$50
5000 Tokens$250
10,000 Tokens$500
20,000 Tokens$1000

I know these token amounts probably seem super high and unachievable, but believe me they aren’t.

100 token tips are extremely common on Chaturbate and even 1000 token tips are. Tips larger than this are a little far and few between but they certainly happen. 

The biggest Chaturbate tip is 338,000 tokens, which is $16,900 tip for the broadcaster.

How Much Do Chaturbate Tokens Cost?

If you are a viewer on Chaturbate, this is how much you will pay on Chaturbate for tokens.

TokensHow much they are worth
100 Tokens$10.99
200 Tokens$20.99
500 Tokens$44.99
1000 Tokens$79.99

As you can see, the more tokens you purchase, the more discount you get. If you are a regular viewer on Chaturbate, then it’s certainly worth stocking up on tokens to take advantage of the discount.

How To Get Verified On Chaturbate

Getting verified on Chaturbate is a very easy process compared to many other cam sites.

However, it can be confusing as you can broadcast on Chaturbate without being verified, but you cannot make any money unless you are verified. 

Once you’ve registered on Chaturbate, simply click Profile in the top right tab and then click token stats.

On this page you’ll see the Broadcaster verification form, click that link and you’ll be taken to the verification form. 

Verified on Chaturbate

You will need photos of your government-issued ID and a selfie photo of you holding this ID.

If you are the only person who will be camming on your stream then you only need to submit your documents.

If you ever cam with another person on your stream, then you’ll need to upload their documents too. 

Chaturbate is very quick at verifying models which is good. Once verified, you will then be able to accept tokens and start earning money. Don’t forget to update your payment information on your Chaturbate account.

Lovense On Chaturbate

As I’ve previously spoken about, the Lovense toy really helped me to earn so much more on cam. It’s a Bluetooth tip-reactive vibrator that will vibrate whenever someone tips you.

So clever, right? 🤯

Lovense Ferri
$119.00 ($119.00 / Count)

Remotely controlled clitoral vibrator that hits all the right places.

A great way to interact with your viewers - and they'll be happy to pay for the privilege.

They have a wide range of different sex toys that are all tip reactive, but my favourite is the Lovense Ferri, which sits in your panties without any insertion. For long cam shifts, I found this to be far more comfortable for me.

Lovense Lush 3
$129.00 ($129.00 / Count)

Remote-controlled vibrator designed for both insertion and clitoral stimulation.

Use it for interactive sessions - and charge your viewers more to get involved!

You can set different vibration strengths and the length of time it vibrates for and how much needs to be tipped for that to happen, for example. 

10 token tip sets the vibration on a mild level for 5 seconds.

100 token tip sets the vibration on a high level for 20 seconds. 

1000 token tip sets the vibration on a high level for 1 minute. 

You can set the token amounts and the vibration settings to suit your needs.

The vibrator can also react and vibrate to music too….so cool 🤩.

Guys on Chaturbate love these toys and will often get very carried away with continuous tips because they like to be the ones who are giving you sexual pleasure.

Types of cam shows

What I love about Chaturbate is that you’re in full control of the settings of your cam shows and what types you wish to accept or not.

There are many ways you can broadcast on Chaturbate. Let’s take a look at them.

1.Public Show 
This is just normal broadcasting, where anyone can view your room for free.

You can perform your shows here and take tip requests from your viewers or have a countdown where everyone contributes.

Many models will first have a countdown for topless or nude, where they set a certain amount if tokens e.g 2000 tokens until you’re nude. You can set this up on your tools so any tips will be auto-deducted from your goal. 

Models will then go on to do another countdown for an actual show of any kind.

Public shows are my favourite as I find 1-2-1 shows a little dull, plus, if you’ve spent hours building your room count to a good number, you’ll lose your viewers once you go private. 

2.Private Cam Shows 
Private 1-2-1 cam shows aren’t so popular on Chaturbate as it’s a very open and public type of cam site that is token-based.

Nevertheless, you can still accept private cam shows. There is also the option to allow your customer to record and download the show after (which I strongly recommend that you turn off).

You can charge from 6-240 tokens per minute and you can set a minimum number of minutes the person has to be in private for.

You can also set how many tokens a viewer needs in their account before they can request a private show.

I recommend that you set at least 5 minutes as a minimum, as this prevents guys from taking you private for 1 minute, clearing your room and then ending the show.

I also recommend setting a minimum amount of tokens a guy needs in his account before he can take you private.

Here is how much you would earn, based on how many tokens per minute you charge:

TokensHow much you will make per minute
20 Tokens$1 Per Minute
40 Tokens$2 Per Minute
60 Tokens$3 Per Minute
100 Tokens$5 Per Minute
200 Tokens$10 Per Minute

Chaturbate also has a spy option. This allows people to spy on a private cam show that you’re in with someone else.

They won’t be allowed to type in the chat, they will just be watching in the background.

You can disable this option, or set a price per minute to charge those who are spying. I recommend turning on this option and charging ¼ of the price of your normal private price. Multiple viewers can spy and the tokens really add up.

3.Ticket Shows / Hidden Shows 
Within the Chaturbate Apps, you can host your own ticket shows, you can set the price of the ticket for your show and you can even give free tickets to the highest tippers or those who join your membership. 

You can then set a password for a private broadcast and provide it for those who have purchased tickets to your show, so only those guys can watch it.

Who Can Broadcast On Chaturbate?

The great thing about Chaturbate is that they are so versatile with who can use their platform.

Where most webcam sites only allow females to become models, Chaturbate is different.

Women, men and trans people are all welcome to perform on the platform as models.

As long as you are over 18 and have a valid government-issued ID.

How To Make Money On Chaturbate

There are so many ways to make money on Chaturbate, which is important because keeping your room unique, fresh and entertaining should be your #1 priority.

Even though guys are mostly there for sexual pleasure, they’re also there to be entertained.

So let’s take a look through all the options to make money on Chaturbate.

1. Tip Menu

On Chaturbate, you can create a tip menu and add whatever you want to it.

Most models will add things like boob or butt flashes, spanks, showing their feet, blowing a kiss, friend add and much more. This keeps the room entertained and adds variety for the viewers. 

2.Lovense Tip Controlled Vibrator 

If you’ve read any of my other articles, you know I love the Lovense Tip Controlled Panty Vibrator.

It has been my bread and butter since the day I got it. There are so many guys on Chaturbate who love the idea of pleasuring their favourite model, from afar and seeing her reaction.

Plus, you earn money every time someone tips. 

You can set different vibration levels for different tip amounts and you can set different vibration lengths for different tip amounts. It’s the best sex toy I’ve ever had and it feels great too.

3.Private Cam Shows / Ticket Shows / Spying 

As I previously spoke about, you can earn money by accepting private shows, organizing ticket shows and allowing viewers to spy on your private shows.

Although this isn’t overly popular on Chaturbate, models do make great money by creating ticket shows. 

4.Fan Pages 

Not quite the fan pages that were used to, but Chaturbate does have its own fan page option.

You can choose how many tokens you charge per month and upload exclusive content for your fan page members to see.  

5.Room Games

On Chaturbate, they have a brilliant app with lots of tipping games and novelties that you can use within your room.

You can also host your own games, like tipping for a wheel spin. You can either have a digital wheel spinner via OBS or a physical one from Amazon.  

Types Of Viewers On Chaturbate

On Chaturbate, they have different colored usernames for different types of viewers. Here is a breakdown of the username colors and how much attention you should be paying to each type of viewer.

Orange – This is a broadcaster, aka another model.

Red – These are moderators of your room if you set any.

Green – Are members who have joined your fan club. This is a good sign of a regular customer and should have your full attention.

Dark purple – Is members who have tipped at least 1000 tokens (collectively) to any model on Chaturbate in the last 2 weeks. They should have a reasonable amount of your attention but only if they are tipping you.

Light purple – Is members who have tipped at least 250 tokens (collectively) to any model on Chaturbate in the last 2 weeks. They should have some of your attention but only if they are tipping you.

Dark blue – Is members who have tipped at least 50 tokens (collectively) to any model on Chaturbate in the last 2 weeks. They should have some of your attention but only if they are tipping you.

Light blue – These are members who have or have had tokens at some point. I wouldn’t pay a great deal of time or attention to these guys. 

Grey – These members have no tokens and never have had tokens. I pay zero attention to these guys, they are freeloaders.

Generally speaking, I think Chaturbate has far too many color options for different types of guys.

I just wish they had one color for tippers and one for non-tippers. It would make things more simple. Trying to remember all these different colors isn’t the easiest thing to do while streaming.

Chaturbate Alternatives

Even though Chaturbate is the 5th most popular adult cam site out there, it’s always worth checking out alternative sites to Chaturbate.

Chaturbate won’t necessarily work for every mode and some models like to split cam across several platforms. So let’s take a look at some alternatives.

SitePayout Percentage %Type of site
Xcams45%Private Based & PVT
Strip Chat5 cents per token Token Based + PVT
Bonga Cams5 cents per tokenToken Based & PVT
Cam Soda5-7 cents per tokenToken Based & PVT

Chaturbate Affiliate

Anyone can earn affiliate income on Chaturbate, including broadcasters.

Affiliate income is a great way to earn passive income. If you already have an established following on social media and you’re looking to join Chaturbate, it would be a wise move to use your affiliate link to promote your cam room. 

When you log into Chaturbate, scroll down to the bottom of the page and click the affiliate button as shown below.

Chaturbate affiliate

You will then be taken to your affiliate portal and you’ll see a menu of options.

If you click linking codes, you can pick which program you want to promote and what page you want to send your viewers to.

Anyone who signs up via your link will be tracked on your portal and you’ll earn money. Here is what you’ll earn:

Programme 1 – You will be paid $1 per person (Tier 1 countries only) to simply sign up (even if they don’t spend any money on Chaturbate. If a model signs up and earns $20, you will get $50.

Programme 2 – You will be paid a 20% rev share of everything this person spends on Chaturbate forever and $50 per model that signs up and makes $20.

Personally, I prefer the revshare option as it has been far more beneficial in promoting my guys to join Chaturbate.

The great thing about this is that you’ll earn money even if guys are spending money on other models too.

Webcam Model Tips

I’m always keen to share tips with new or current webcam models. It can sound like a super easy job to jiggle your tits on cam, but it really isn’t easy. Having a busy room, entertaining the room and earning a stable income from camming is incredibly hard and there are so many situations you need to watch out for, so here’s some advice to help you along the way. 

Never Share Personal Details

As I always say, never share your real name or personal information with any of your viewers, even regulars. Most guys are safe and fine, but some are not (even if they appear so). There are some very creepy and unsafe guys out there, so it’s better to be safe than sorry. 

Never give services until you’re paid first.

Some guys are total losers who will try to con models into giving them a flash or cam show before they’ve been paid. Unless you’re entering into a private cam show where you are being paid by the minute, then you should always request payment beforehand. If a guy says he will pay afterwards, believe me, they never will. 

Don’t beg for tips or use emotional manipulation

I’ve seen this situation more times than I care to think about, models who aren’t earning much who resort to emotional manipulation, like trying to make guys feel sorry for them to get tips. Or outright begging on cam for tips. It’s not professional or a good way to build a steady income. 

Don’t log on cam in a bad mood

You’re going to get those days where you’re in a bad mood and the idea of chatting to horny men is going to feel tedious. But logging on cam while in this mood probably won’t be a great idea. Your guys will notice it and it can create a bad vibe in the room. Instead, give yourself the day off and relish in some self-care. 

Don’t do things you aren’t comfortable doing

When you aren’t earning much, it can be very tempting to give in to requests that you aren’t comfortable with, just to earn a bit of cash. But trust me, it’s not worth it and it’ll live with you forever. Set your limits and stick by them no matter what. 

Manage your expectations

Many cam girls come into camming with unrealistic expectations. They’ve read some articles online and heard cam models earn $10,000 a month while working 2 hours per day. This is so unrealistic for 99% of models.

Can you earn $10k per month eventually? Absolutely, but that’s going to take a lot of time, patience and hard work. If you want to make 5 figures per month, you have to expect to be working at least 100 hours per month.

This is why so many models can give up very soon because their expectations were so high and they were left feeling very disappointed because they expected it to be easy money.


Chaturbate is great. It is reliable and it has so much traffic, which is great because you won’t need to promote your room to get viewers. You would have to be completely comfortable with being nude and doing sexual acts on cam to do well on Chaturbate. Camming in general is a great paying career and it’s good for those who need to work from home or need to work part-time.
