HOW YOU EARN MONEY ON SOULCAMS
When you broadcast with your cam
- SoulCams does not pay for online time, if you are online with your cam you earn money if members give you a tip, take you to private show or use the voyeur feature to peek in your room.
- To learn about the way you can go online with your cam, read the How to broadcast with your cam page.
Private shows (Standard and 1on1)
- You will know immediately if you are taken to private session. It has a special notification sound, check it out here: Furthermore a 'You are in private session' text will appear at the top-left part of the SoulCams model application.
- You can set the per-minute prices of the different show types in the Performer area at Settings / My profile / Performer charge options menu.
- There are two types of private sessions: Standard and 1on1, to understand the difference between them check out the Private show types page
Tips / gifts
- Members can send you tips for the price of 2, 5, 8, 10, 15, 20, 25, 30, 35, 40, 45, 50, 60, 70, 80 credits both when you are online with cam and you are offline.
- You get a % from the tips which is 50% basically or 70% in case you received it from a referred member (you can check it out under this section).
- When you broadcast with your cam and you receive tips you will hear this notification sound: . The gifts also have an animation, they will appear in your model application (check it out here how it will look like) and your portion from the gifts appears in your stats also immediately. So if you broadcast with your cam and a member says that he gave you a gift but it did not have an animation, nor you heard a notification sound and it does not appear in your stats then he tries to deceive you and you got a fake tip.
- Note: you can receive tips when you are in Free chat, Members only mode and during private sessions also and even when you are not online (members have the option to send you offline tip from your profile)
- When you are in Members only mode or Private session members can peek in your room with Voyeur function for a fix price: 0,99 credits / min. * They cannot type, only watch your live stream. Voyeur will have this special notification sound: . If you are having a ONE-ON-ONE show, other members will not be able to peek in your room with Voyeur feature.
- Voyeur function can be set to: ENABLE (0.99 credits / min --> fix price, not optional), or 15 SEC LIMITED
Earn extra cash by referring members and webcam models to us
You can refer members and models for extra cash. Both our member referral and model/chat hosts referral programs are for lifetime and also note that by the performer referral system you also can earn money while you are not online.
- Member referral program: +20% share from referred members’ spending lifetime. More info here

How do I know if a member has credits or not?
In your performer area there is a menu: My network/Members where you can check out the members' profile. Search for the desired member and on the first page, next to the 'Last login date' you will see if he has a positive credit and promotional credit balance. Read more about the Members menu here. More information about the promotion credits can be read on this page.
Real Admins and fake Admins
Sometimes you may meet fake admins in your room who try to deceive you. Example: AdmiinistratorO1: 'Click on this Username then Click on Invite. We are here to record a teaser video of you'. Please note that real admins will never visit you in free chat and ask you to do anything. Real admins usually go to private and will write in blue check out here what sound you will here if you are taken to private by an admin.
