REGISTRATION

How can I go to private session, what do I need to do step by step?

  • First you need to create a member account, you can sign up by clicking on the FREE SIGNUP! text at the top-right corner of the site or click here. Choose a username (this is the name performers will see when you enter their room), choose a password you will easily remember later and add a valid, working email address where you are available.
  • If done then you will be redirected to the BUY CREDIT page. Please mind that as it is an online transaction you need to add your valid details in all cases for your own and our safety as well, transaction attempts with inappropriate details will be rejected!
  • choose a credit package then provide the owner of the credit card you wish to use, the credit card number, the CVV2 number and the expiry date of it. If done then click on FINISH and wait for the answer from the Billing Service Provider. The transaction may be approved or declined:
  • If your transaction was approved (check your balance at the top of the page) then you can go to private session with the models (Standard and One-On-One), use the VOYEUR function (peek in their room). If you open the model's live chat room then you can see the Start Show button above her live camera picture. If you click on it, a pop-up window will come up and you can decide if you wish to go to private with Standard mode or One-on-One way

I'm concerned about giving out my e-mail address.

SoulCams never shares or sells your registration information, including your email address (You can read more about our Privacy Policy here), your email address is not displayed on our site, and our performers do not know your personal information. Of course, if you contact any of SoulCams' models and exchange your contact information, we can't prevent the chathost from sending you email, but that is your decision. In case you suspect that a model is sending you unsolicited emails (spam), please report it to us immediately. We have an internal messaging system which is free for all paid members, we suggest you use it instead of giving out your private e-mail address. We may also periodically use email to send you newsletters or special offers about the site. You can quit receiving newsletters from us any time. Also note that we send transaction confirmation emails to your registered email address, so it is really important to have a valid, working email address where you are available.

Is it safe to buy credits?

Buying credits is 100% secure, your transactions will be handled by the industry leading billing processor: SecurionPay. Confidential information (your name, card details, ..) are transmitted via encrypted channels (look for the "closed padlock" icon in your browser). Any personal information collected from you is kept strictly confidential and is for the limited purpose of identity verification to protect SoulCams from abusive behavior. Any payment information collected will never be used to charge you for anything, unless you specifically authorize us to.

The email address I gave at registration is wrong or not available any more. How can I add a new one?

Please log in to your member account and go to the SETTINGS menu. You can add your new email address where we send a confirmation link.

Where can I add the model's name who invited me to SoulCams.com?

Models can send you their individual referral link to signup on SoulCams. Just use the link to sign up and our system will detect the referral model (the referral links look like this: http://www.soulcams.com/membersignup/?ref=XXXXX where XXXXX is the Model's username). You can also add manually the referrer model's performer username during the member account signup at the relevant field.

MEMBER ACCOUNT MANAGEMENT

I forgot my username or password

Click on the Forgot Password link and we will send you a new password (you can change it later)

Where can I change my password?

Log into your member account and click on SETTINGS menu to change your password. We recommend that you choose a strong password with the combination of letters and numbers.

How can I check my account balance?

Once you are logged in, check your balance at the top of the page. This is where you can see your normal balance and promotional credits balance.

Here is a short summary of the balances you might have, what they mean and where you can find them:

  • Normal credit balance: this shows your available balance after buying credits or getting extra credits from our usual member promotions (e.g. Buy 3, get 4). Find this balance at the top-right part of the page.
  • Promotional credit balance: we often reward our members with free credits. Learn more about promotional credits here. Find your promotional credit balance at the top-right part of the page, right exactly next to the normal credit balance.
  • Gift credit balance: getting gift credits from performers is a special feature at SoulCams. We created a special menu for you in your member account where you can check out who gave you gift credits, indicating the amount and you also can see if the model is online or not. Log into your account and click on 'Gift credits' menu. To understand how the gift credit system works check out this page
  • Free minutes balance: performers can reward SoulCams members with extra private show minutes. This is completely free for you and you can enjoy extra time with your favorites. Log into your account and click on free minutes menu to see who you got free minutes from. Learn more about the 'free minutes' feature here

Am I allowed to give my member account password to any other person or to my favourite model?

We record each login attempts of member accounts for security reasons. If any unusual IP appears in your login history we may put your account on hold and ask you to contact our Support Team for verification. It is your responsibility to keep your passwords safe, if you give out your login information to anybody we cannot assure that your information will be protected. We also do not advise member to give out their password to models, if the model uses the member account for bad purposes (e.g bothering other models) then both the model and the member account will automatically be suspended (blocked). Models who log into a member's account are not allowed to spend any credits from the member account balance, it is also prohibited for a model to vote, write messages, wishes with the member account. If it happens then we block both the model and the member account (in such cases contact us at [email protected], we will reactivate your member account and you will be asked to change your password to a new one.) Even if you have a serious relationship with a model we still do not recommend giving your password to models.

How long can I use my account?

Once you create a Member account it will be available for life even if no purchase happens on it.

Can I create and use multiple member accounts?

Yes, you may create as many member accounts as you wish.

Can I change my member username?

Unfortunately no, if you wish to have another member username, you can create a new one any time.

I got some gift credits from a Performer. How can I use them?

Occasionally we reward our models with gift credits that they can distribute among active members who made at least one transaction in the last 30 days (active member = member who made at least one transaction on the site). If you get gift credits then you can use them exclusively on the model you received the gift credits from (you cannot spend the gift credits on other models). Once you get gift credits from a performer you will get a message about it to your inbuilt message system. A separate sub-menu will list the models who you got gift credits from ('My page' main menu / 'Gift credits' sub-menu) including the gift credit amount under their profile image. Once you access a model's room you got gift credits from, a green text will appear at the top-right corner of the page ('Gift credits from this performer: X'). If you have gift credits and you have positive credit balance also then your gift credit balance will be used first if you take the model to private. If that becomes zero then your credit balance will be used automatically and without any interruption for the rest of the private session. Please note that the gift credits can be used for taking the model you got the gift credits from to private session (both standards and 1on1 private), use the voyeur feature to peek in her room, or give her tips. Gift credits cannot be used for voting on models' images during special photo vote contests. Also note that you need to use the received gift credits in 30 days otherwise they will revert to the model.

I got some free private show minutes from a Performer. How can I use them?

Performers may give you free minutes that you can use exclusively in their room for private show. Once you get free minutes from a performer you will get a message both to your inbuilt message system and registered email address. You need to spend at least 8 uninterrupted minutes in private show in order to use the free minutes you got. You need to have at least one, successful transaction in the last 60 days in order to receive free minutes from models. Note: you have 16 days to use the received free minutes. If you miss it then it will revert to the model. A separate sub-menu will list the models who you got free minutes from under the 'My page' main menu / 'Free minutes' sub-menu. Once you access a model's room you got free minutes from, a green text will appear at the top-right corner of the page.

I would like to get some extra credits, how can I receive some?

Pay attention to our news as we usually provide opportunities for members to gain extra credits. Become a VIP member and get bonus credits for every package you buy above 26! Read more about it at the If I am a VIP member how many extra credits can I get for credit packages? section. On the top of that you can receive bonus credits my inviting models or your friends to us. Read more about it at the Referral systems page

I have several usernames (accounts), can models realize that these all belong to me?

No, models will not know about it, we never share any information (including your personal information) provided by you during the member account registration. The only way they can get more information about you if you share it with them. We recommend you never to share information like your real name, address, company you work with, e-mail address etc. with anyone on the internet.

I follow some models but I do not want to get notification emails if they come online, what can I do?

Log in to your member account and click on 'Following'. Uncheck the 'Notification' box under the model's profile picture to get rid of the notification emails.

How do I remove a Favorite Model?

Log into your member account, click on 'Following'. There are all the models you marked as favourite (follow). If you want to remove a performer then hit the Remove text under the performer's picture.

I'm banned from free chat. Why?

Please understand, that our models work hard to satisfy all customers, be kind with them and never ask for things they are not allowed to do and avoid being rude with them. It is the model's decision, they can ban guests from the free chat area if they feel like. If you think that a Model banned you without reason please contact us and we will investigate it.

What am I allowed to do and what not while I am online?

As a viewer you have to respect the online models so please be nice to them and do not make fun of them. Usage of dirty words, bothering them, begging for free show continuously will not lead to anything and the models will ignore you or ban you from their chat room. If you have a problem with a model (the model was rude to you without reason / the model’s behavior was unacceptable) or maybe with an other member or guest then contact us and we will investigate it and do the necessary steps. Bothering or annoying, trolling them make no sense, in such cases look for other models

While you are online you are NOT allowed to:

  • be rude with models / members (or guests) without any reason
  • offer them to send money outside SoulCams.com
  • encourage them to give you a show outside SoulCams.com
  • asking for personal details (name, address), telephone number, email address / instant messaging contact ways like Yahoo, Skype ...
  • record the model’s live camera feed / save pictures from their gallery and publish it anywhere
  • advertise any other webcam sites
  • flood the chat room or disrupt other users in any way

How do I cancel my membership at SoulCams.com?

Please send us an email from your registered e-mail address including your username. However, it is unnecessary to cancel your membership, since there are no recurring fees. Your credit card will not be charged unless you initiate a transaction.

I want to unsubscribe from SoulCams newsletter, what do I have to do?

The easiest way is to disable Newsletter function is to click on menu 'SETTINGS' and uncheck the newsletter option. Alternatively you can send us an email from your registered email address as well with 'unsubscribe from newsletter' request.

COMMUNICATION WITH MODELS

How can I send messages to the models?

If you are a paying member then models can send you messages and you can send them too at menu Messages. You can also enclose images, links and send them to models. Sending messages is totally free of charge on SoulCams!

Can I get a notification when a performer is online?

You can mark your favourite performers by clicking on the 'Add to favorites' button in the chat panel. You will find your favourite performers under menu 'Following' in your member account. Any time your favorite model is online you will get an e-mail message. You can set the frequency of these notifications, by default you'll get one message per model every 24 hours. There is also an MSN-style pop-up that appears on the top-right corner of your browser.

PRIVATE SHOWS, SHOW TYPES, PRICES

How much do I have to pay for a private show?

First of all you need to buy credits to be able to go to private session. The private show prices are not fix prices, models can set the price-per-minute for their shows. Any time you plan to take a girl to private session, a pop-up window will notify you about the model's per-minute prices (standard and 1on1 privates).
Let's say you bought 30 credits and you choose a model whose Standard Private per-minute price is: 1.99 credits / min. It means that if you go to private show with your 30 credits you will be able to stay in private session for more than 15 minutes with the model (30 / 1,99 = 15,07). If the model's per-minute price is 2,49 credits / min for example then a 30 credits member account balance would last for more than 12 minutes (30 / 2,49 = 12,04).
There are two ways you can take a model to private session: STANDARD and ONE-ON-ONE. Each option has different per minute prices, STANDARD mode can range from 0,99 to 9,49 credits per minute while ONE-ON-ONE private varies between 1,99 to 9,49 credits per minute depending on the performers' setting. You can always check the prices before entering a private show, click on Start show button and a pop up window will notify you about the models' prices and will also allow you to select between the two show types. Your credits are deducted on per-second basis. You can peek behind closed chatrooms using our Voyeur feature which has a fixed price of 0.99 credits per minute.

What is the difference between Standard and One-on-One private shows?

STANDARD private show has a lower price and 4 members can join in at the same time. Members can not see each others' chat or communicate with each other, so each member can only chat with the model.

ONE-ON-ONE private show has a higher price, but we guarantee that you can enjoy full intimacy with your favorite model. During a ONE-ON-ONE show no other members can join the show or peek in

What does VOYEUR function mean?

While a model is hiding her cam (for example: she is having a private show with a member) you can peek in the show at a lower cost than the Standard and One-on-One private session. VOYEUR has a fix price at all models: 0,99 credits / minute and available at those who enabled this function and are not in One-On-One private session. With voyeur function you can watch and hear the live private show as if you were in a private session, the main difference is that you CANNOT have access to the private chat between the model and the member and you cannot type to the model. The button saying VOYEUR is next to the Start show in the chatroom. The models can disable this function though, so some of them might have this button inactive.

Why can't I use voyeur function at some Performers?

You can use the voyeur function if the model is NOT in free chat (if she is in a private session) and it must be enabled by the model. Models have the right to decide to allow members to peek in their room or not, keep on searching and you surely will find models allowing voyeur function!

I forgot to vote on the model after the private show, can I do it later?

To vote for a model you need to spend at least 5 minutes with them in private continuously (without interruption). Once you enter private, a VOTE button will appear on the top of the chat panel. A green bar will indicate if the 5 minutes have passed and the button will become active and you can vote for the model. You don't need to wait until the private show ends, however you can vote for the model after you quit the show in the Vote for a show menu in the menubar until midnight (Note: all times are GMT+2).

A model invited me to private conversation, do I have to pay for that?

No, that is absolutely free, although the available time for standard members and guests is limited. Free private conversation means that the Model would like to separate you from the main free chat so others will not see your conversation. This is a great way for models to get customers know better. This feature is not the same as a private chat or private session! Tip: become a VIP member to enjoy the (free) private conversation feature with much more available time!

What happens if I get disconnected during private show?

You will only be charged for the time spent in private. If you experience disconnections frequently please read the I have problem viewing the live feeds section or contact us for help.

Can models in non-nude categories get naked?

According to our rules, models in the Flirt/Talk only category can get naked during a private show, however they are not obliged to do that. It is their choice but please always make sure you talk it over in the free chat area first to avoid conflicts.

The model won't do what I asked for in private

Our models are free to decide what they will and will not do in private. Performers are not obligated to do anything you ask, but most are willing and happy to put on a show for you. The free chat is the perfect place to find out from the performer what she will and won't do. These are real people broadcasting from their homes live, and they will have different likes and dislikes. Please mind always to check first what main category the Model is in. Models in GIRLS category has to perform a naked show in private session if you ask for it. Tell your detailed wishes to the models in free chat first and ask them if they are willing to do it or not in private show. If the model will not do in private session as promised, report it to us through an email and we will investigate it. Models in FRIENDSHIP main category are here for chatting, flirting, they do not have to perform a nude show, although if the model tends to do it for you in private session then we will not punish her for it, it just depends on the model's decision. Please check the model's bio page too you are interested in and read what they are willing to do in paid private chat. You can also use the 'WISHLIST' feature to find a model for your special request.

VIP MEMBERSHIP BENEFITS

What do i get as a VIP member?

The biggest benefit you get being a VIP member is the opportunity to buy credits on our site without any daily limits and to get bonuses for every credit purchases. Consider that a VIP member is highlighted with yellow text in the chat rooms, therefore models will recognize you instantly. Models can invite users to private conversations in free chat, for standard members the duration of invites is limited per day while VIP members can be invited for significantly longer time.

How much does it cost to become a VIP member? How does the subscribing process work?

There are two VIP membership periods in a month, these are:

  • from 1th till 15th of each month
  • from 16th till the end of the month

The VIP status costs 14.95 credits for a period. You can subscribe to the VIP program any time you wish and the fee of the VIP membership will change based on the day you join it and will be deducted from your member account credit balance (if you have sufficient funds on your member account). It means that the fee is determined on a daily basis, it will not cost 14.95 credits for you to become a VIP member if you join on the 3rd of a month for example (the fee will be calculated from the subscribing day till the end of the VIP membership period, check the length of the periods above).

  • When you subscribe to our VIP program then system will automatically renew your VIP membership at the beginning of the next VIP period (if you will not have enough credits on your member account balance then of course your VIP status will not be renewed). If for example you subscribed to VIP on the 6th of October then you are a VIP member till the 15th of October. On the 16th the system will renew your VIP membership (till the last day of the month) and deduct the fee of the new VIP period as well. If you do not want the system to automatically renew your VIP membership then you can easily disable his function by clicking on the *Disable automatic subscription renew text on the 'MY VIP MEMBERSHIP' page.
  • You can extend your VIP membership with one more period any time by clicking on the Extend membership text on 'MY VIP MEMBERSHIP' page.

PROMOTIONAL CREDITS

This type of credit will be distributed among active members from time to time and will allow you to start a private or voyeur session with any model of your choice.

As these credits will be calculated with a lower percentage, models can choose, if they allow or decline such privates. When entering a chat room of a model, the status will be displayed on top of the page together with the promotional credits balance.

Your promotional credit balance also will be displayed at the top-right corner of the page, right exactly next to your normal credit balance.

In case you would have multiple type of credit balance on your account (standard, gift credit and promotional credits), the system will always use the Promotional Credits first. During a private session, if one of the balances run low, the system will seamlessly switch to other remaining type of credits, so the private show will continue without interruption.

My webcam / microphone did not work during the show, why?

First of all please check out the following site where you can see how to set up your camera in the Flash Player settings with illustrations and you also can test your camera there if it works properly or not: Flash Player Help / Troubleshoot webcam issues

Problems with cam2cam / voice2voice may happen because of different reasons, these are:

  • your webcam / microphone is not set up properly in the flash player settings. You can check your flash settings in the following way: right-click on a performer's live cam picture and hit Settings (1.). Click on the webcam icon and check if your webcam or other video source is present (2.). To set up your microphone click on the microphone icon and check if the right microphone type is selected or not (3.). In the Privacy panel (second icon from left) make sure you select the ALLOW option and the REMEMBER option too (4.)!
  • you have a slow or unstable internet connection. Cam to cam requires more bandwidth on your part, especially more upload speed that may result in disconnection or a clogged up stream if the internet speed is not sufficient.
  • you do not have the Flash Player installed or you are not using the latest version. Please mind that each internet browser requires different flash players installed and they are required to be updated too. You can check if you have the latest one here (Note: Recent versions of the Google Chrome browser contains the latest flash player, there is no need to download or update the flash player.)
  • other instant messenger programs are running at the background. Please always close yahoo messenger/Skype.... and other programs as well which may use your internet connection or may use your webcam/microphone.
  • the Driver or Software of your webcam / webcam is not installed properly. Please check in other ways too if your webcam works or not, if not then uninstall and reinstall the driver of the webcam and try again.
