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 spy 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: Loudspeaker icon.png 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 both when you are online with cam and you are offline.
  • You can either receive normal tips or virtual gifts. We have a lot of virtual gifts that members can give to you. More categories: constant categories, seasonal categories. Check out our gift collection here: Virtual gifts on SoulCams
  • When you broadcast with your cam and you receive virtual gifts you will hear this notification sound: Loudspeaker icon.png. The virtual gifts also have an animation, they will appear in your model application 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, Hidden cam 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)

Recommended pages to read:


  • When you are in Hidden cam mode or Private session members can peek in your room with Spy function for a fix price: 10 tokens / min. * They cannot type, only watch your live stream. Spy will have this special notification sound: Loudspeaker icon.png. If you are having a ONE-ON-ONE show, other members will not be able to peek in your room with Spy feature.
  • Spy feature can be set to: ENABLE (10 tokens / min --> fix price, not optional), or 15 SEC LIMITED or DISABLED.

Visitors types and how they appear and write in the SoulCams Model application

There are four levels of user statuses on SoulCams, these are: Guests, Basic members, Active members, VIP members and Fan Club members. To understand the difference among them and to see the way they appear in the model application please check out the this page: Visitor types and how they appear and write in the SoulCams Model application

How do I know if a member has tokens 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 token balance. Read more about the Members menu here.

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 will PM you, and will write in light green color.check out here what sound you will here if you are taken to private chat by an admin.


Each site has troll users, SoulCams does too. Please read the following article that helps you to recognize trolls and the page also gives advice on how to handle them: Troll users and how to handle them
