How to Identify the Best Paying Cam Sites for Camgirl

Best paying cam sites

The best paying cam sites are the site that pay you the most. There are many cam sites to make money that you can sign up and work as a camgirl. There are too many to choose actually. Choosing the best paying cam site is difficult decision as each site is different. I am sure you have seen ads saying “the highest payout rate!” or “The best cam sites to make money!”. The best paying cam site is not necessarily the highest payout rate. But the site that you will have the highest probability that you get paid viewers within the time you work. Because the time you do not have viewers is the same as you are losing money because you could have made money if you have worked at other sites.

We developed an analysis model to identify which site is really the best paying cam site. The best paying cam sites this page defines is the site that has the highest probability that you have paid viewers in your room. Also there are other factors such as what time you work and recording issue that this page covers.

What you need to consider

The best paying cam site does not necessarily mean that the payout rate is the highest. Other things such as traffic, target audience, charging system, where traffic comes from, number of models working at the site need to be considered.

  • Payout rate

How much the site takes out of what viewers pay. The more site takes, the less money you get. But payout rate itself does not give you an idea of how much you can actually earn as how much viewers are charged needs to be considered.

  • Traffic

No need to explain. But more traffic the sites has, the better chance that you have more viewers.

  • Target audience

For example, if you are a BBW model, you would have a better chance at the site where viewers who like BBW are there.

  • Charging system

If the site uses tipping base system, the risk that someone you know find out increases as it is free to watch the show. Furthermore, you may not like the idea of giving your show for free.

Pay per minutes system is better for models who like to have more privacy. Also pay per minutes system gives you small smaller group of viewers. If you do not like to talk to 1,000 people at the same time, pay per minutes system is the better choice for you.

  • Where traffic comes from 

Depending on how you look like and what language you speak, may be you have the better chance at the site where majority of viewers are from other country.

The best paying cam sites may not mean the best site for you if you put more priority on your privacy. If you want to reduce the risk that someone you know finds out, it is better to work at the site where nobody from your country visits. The information was obtained from similarweb,com.

  • Number of models who work at the site

Less model means less competition. Thus, you have more viewers. The numbers are actual number of online models counted at the time that we went to the site.

We collected those information on each sites to identify the best paying cam sites to make money for you.

Best paying cam sites analysis

First, let’s see which sites are the best paying cam sites in terms of traffic.

Name of the siteTraffic per month
1. Live Jasmin 237.7M
2. Chaturbate211.4M
3. Bonga Cams 135.90M
4. MyFreeCams65.20M
5. Flirt4Free 63.70M
6. Cam444.40M
7. Camster11.60M
8. XLoveCam7.30M
9. Cam Soda6.80M
10. StripChat6.50M

 Best paying cam sites traffic

Among all the camming sites, Live Jasmin has the highest traffic. But Live Jasmin traffic is misleading as Live jasmin uses pop up marketing method. Bongacams also uses pop up marketing as well.Whenever you see live web camming pop up, it is from Live Jasmin. Thus, actual traffic for Live Jasmin is much less than what it looks like.

Considering such factor, Chaturbate should have the highest traffic.

All of high traffic sites except Live jasmin, Imlive and Xlovecam offer free live camming show. That is the reasons that those sites have the high traffic.

The questions is if high traffic means the best? The answer is “no” High traffic does not mean they have the paid viewers.

Number of expected viewers

Traffic itself does not give you accurate information on which site gives you the best opportunity. You need to consider how fierce competition is. The level of competition can be measured by checking how many models are working at the site you are thinking to work.

With the information on how many model working online, you can estimate how many potential customers you can expect.

Here is the estimated number of viewer you can expects.

Name of the siteExpected number of viewers per hour
Bonga Cams399.0486
Flirt4Free382.9966
Chaturbate266.9192
Live Jasmin191.0526

FC2 live57.88804
Freewebcams39.68254

DX live36.52263

*The number is calculated “monthly traffic/30 days/24hours/number of models online”

Best paying cam sites expected number of viewer

Bonga Cams seems to have highest number of viewers you can expect.

How many number of viewers you can expect is not enough indicator to use in order to decide the best paying cam sites.

The reason is that the some sites utilize free show marketing. Since models at tipping based sites such as Bongacams, chaturbate and Flirt 4 free provides free show due to tipping is the primary income stream, the sites have full of freeloaders. Also Bongacams and LiveJasmin use popup marketing heavily. 

Thus, we need to factor out those who are not paid viewers. 

Freeloaders

Based on our investigation(counting at tipping based site), we identified that the rate of viewers who actually give models tips seems to be around 3%. From our internal data at DX live, we used 16% as the rate of viewers who actually go to paid room for pay per minutes sites.

In order to factor out popup marketing portion, we assumed 60% of traffics are coming from popups.

With these adjustments, the numbers look like below.

Name of the siteExpected number of paid viewers per hour
Live Jasmin12.22737
FC2 live9.262087
Chaturbate8.007576
Bonga Cams7.182875
DX live5.843621

Camster3.295833
MyFreeCams2.423431
ImLive1.400966
Freewebcams1.190476

Potential paying power based on GNI(PPP)

We know how many potential customers you can expect to have per hour.

What about the amount of money you can expect from them?

How much viewers can pay depend on how much money that viewers have.

The viewers are coming from several countries. Income level among each countries are greatly different.

Thus we need to include such factor into the model to identify the best paying cam sites. We used Purchasing Power Parity adjusted GNI per capita(Gross National Income).

We skip an explanation about PPP and GNI but GNI per capita expresses how much income each individual received in each country.

After adjusting the number here is the result of the analysis that suggest the best paying cam site.

Name of the siteGNI adjusted score
1. Live Jasmin9.584867
2. FC2 live6.664472

The best paying cam sites

Based on our analysis, Live Jasmin is the best paying cam site. But we are doubtful Live Jasmin is the best paying cam sites because even with the adjustment we included, it is very likely the traffic information at Live Jasmin is not accurate due to pop up marketings. FC2 live is number 2 which is one of the biggest sites in Japanese market. But without localization, no foreign models can make money much.

Flirt4free, Bonga cams and Chaturbate are hybrid site which utilize both tipping and pay per minutes. Try one of those site first to see if you do well. Since it is hybrid, you can expect to have tipping and pay per minutes viewers. Once you get bench mark on how much you can make from one of these sites, try out FC2 live and DX live. Both of these Japanese sites are based on pay per minutes. Sometime tipping based site requires long login time to achieve the goal as the standard deviation for free site is much higher meaning difference between bad day and good day is bigger. Thus, if you have limited time, pay per minutes would fit better for you. By trying those sites, you would be able to find the best paying cam sites.

Time factor

There is a huge gap between high traffic time and low traffic time. Sometimes low traffic time is 5 times less than high traffic time. Thus, having several site in hand is suggested to the most of webcam models. If you work at wrong time, the best paying cam site is not really the best. Work at right time is very importa thing to remember. The question is when is the best time? It is usually night time for viewers. You need to do little work to identify where the traffic coming from first. But we have a page explaining when is the good time to work for top sites identified above at Best cam sites to make money.

Other thing why you need to have several sites is that working long hour everyday reduces average income per hour as viewers like to try something new. So, to maximize your income, rotating the site would be a good strategy.

Free sites vs pay per minutes

Analysed above, best paying cam sites are Livejasmin, FC2 live and Chaturbate. Livejasmin and FC2 live is based on pay per minutes while Chaturbate is tipping base. Free sites allows infinite number viewers to go into models room for free. Thus, popular room gets 100 times more viewers than less popular rooms. Considering such nature of tipping based site, the income distribution of models should be tighter than pay per minutes site. In another word, few popular models gets a lot more than popular models at pay per minutes site but those who lose the competition get significantly lower amount than less popular models at pay per minutes site.

It is up to you to decide which way you go; tipping base high return high risk of failure free site  or medium return medium risk pay per minutes site. The more detail on pros and cons about two different type of cam sites is explained at Best webcam sites to work for:Token vs Private

Another thing to consider: risk that someone you know find out

It is one of the biggest concerns that what if someone you know find out you work as a cam girl. It is going to be disaster. There are site that have a blocking function. But that function is far from perfect. If a viewer is using smartphone, There is a high probability that the function will fail. In addition, if a viewer is using VPN or proxy, the regional blocking does not do its job at all. The safest way to protect yourself from such risk is to work at the site where nobody from your country visits. We put information together for you to see where the traffic comes from, what system that sites adopt and so on.

Recordings

Be careful! If you work at cam sites including Live Jasmin, Bogacams, Chaturbate, My free Cam and Flirt4free, you will be recorded and uploaded 100%. There is a recording bot crawling free shows and uploading to other sites to make money out of your show. Infamous site for uploading recording is Webcamrecordings. If you visit this site, you will notice that there are many videos uploaded. All of those videos were recorded without models agreement.

If you truly care about your privacy, Japanese sites are the only one that are safe as of today. Almost all viewers are Japanese. Thus, you would not need to worry about your identity and recording risks.
