Your Earnings

Q:   What do I get paid for?
 
A:
  As a Webcam performer, you'll get paid every time a customer enters your full show. The more you interact with your customers and the longer you get them to stay, the more money you make!

-------------------------------------------------------------------

Q:   How do I determine my price per minute?
 
A:   The price you set is up to you. The minimum amount you can charge is $.99/minute and the maximum is $4.99/minute. You should take several factors into consideration when choosing your price per minute. Typically new performers will charge a lesser amout to start, to increase their popularity and customer base. If you are performing as a couple or group you would typically charge a greater amout. You can choose to alter your price per minute at any point in time.

-------------------------------------------------------------------

Q:   What payment options are available?
 
A:   We have the following payment options available:
1. Checks by regular mail (Sent every Wednesday - $20 minimum)
2. Checks by FedEx® (Sent every Wednesday - $200 minimum, US address only and $25 fee)
3. Wire payment (Sent every Friday - $200 minimum, $40 fee)
4. Payoneer (Sent every Friday - $100 minimum)

You can make the selection of how you wish to be paid in your profile details. Whichever selection you make, please be sure to complete all necessary information for payments to be processed.

 

Q:   When will I get my payment and what happens if it does not arrive?
 
A:  

Payments are sent weekly. You get paid for your income earned the previous week. Checks are mailed out every Thursday.

Checks are sent out every week, checks under $20 are held over to the next week. If you selected wire as your payment form - wires are sent every Friday assuming your minimum has been met. Wires have a $40 fee. Your personal information will be kept confidential, and will be used solely for the purpose of transferring your funds to you. This could and should be the most lucrative job you will ever have. Your time and commitment will really pay off.

If you do not receive your check and believe it is lost, you have two options. You can either have the check reissued the following week for a fee of $25; or you can choose to wait 45 days from the time of mailing the payment and the check will be reissued without fees.

We are  not responsible for funds after they have been submitted to Payoneer. Payoneer is not required to follow federally funded bank guidelines; they do not provide confirmation numbers and are not guaranteed like bank wires. We will provide whatever confirmation we have that funds have been sent, but Streamate is not responsible for performer/studio access to those funds in Payoneer. All disputes of funds not received should be directed at Payoneer customer service.

 

Q:   Are my services being taxed?
 
A:   As a erformer, you are considered to be an independent contractor, and all taxes are your responsibility. Streamate Limited is a NON-US company, based in Cyprus - they do NOT send 1099s each year to performers. Please consult the tax requirements in your area for any special requirements.


Getting Started

 

Q:   How do I set up my computer?
 
A:   We recommend that you are running Windows 98 or higher with at least 64 megabites of ram. A faster computer will provide a cleaner stream. We suggest upgrading to a gigabite processor with 256 megabites of ram, but it is not necessary to run the Streamate Limited software.

 

Q:   What kind of internet connection do I need?
 
A:   You can run our software on anything from a 56k modem to a T3. We suggest using a faster internet connection solely for the purpose of increasing the quality of your video stream. Although, remember we are providing the bandwidth, so you can perform for as many customers at one time as you want, even with the slowest internet connection.

 

Q:   What kind of web cam do I need?
 
A:   The best video will be produced by a common camcorder and a capture card (preferably one that is internal). However, a basic web camera will work fine also.

 

Q:   How do I get customers?
 
A:   We provide all of the advertising and marketing for you. Just make sure your photo and description are set up the way you want them, and customers will come to you! Remember to fill out all the details in your profile so that you will show up in searches made by our users.
