FirstChoicePay was a way to receive payouts on SoulCams.com. The service is now shut down meaning that we cannot send payouts to your FirstChoicePay account any more. The company says, "FirstChoice Pay is not receiving or processing any further payments, effective immediately." As a result, we ask you to please change your payment method with us so that we can process your future payouts. We offer several alternatives (please see them above).
