This past month I’ve been publishing many how-to guides showing you how to make money with adult content, but today I want to take a closer look at Chaturbate and answer a question I know many have, which is…

How much money can you make on Chaturbate?

How Much Do Chaturbate Models Make?

A lot! But of course, just with any other type of (online) business in the world; you only get out what you’ve put in.

How much you can make as a Chaturbate model will vary, but it will all come down to you and how much effort you put into it.

I can’t really tell you “on average” how much ALL cam girls make, but the top ones definitely do make a lot of money doing what they do (in this case; broadcasting live to the world).

The top 5 highest paid cam girls on Chaturbate earn about 1200 tokens an hour (according to this website). I’ll explain the Chaturbate token value in more depth below but on average; 2000 tokens will earn you about $100.

How Much Can You Earn Per Day?

With that estimation, the top cam girls are making around $60 per hour and doing that for 3-4 hours can net you around $240 a day, $7200 a month or $86,400 per year.

That + the other ways I will explain down below on how you can increase your income as a cam girl, you are looking at around $10,000 a month in earnings “working” half the time you would working a normal job (and hopefully having a lot more doing it).

So yeah; cam girls earn a lot and if you are looking to make some quick money, this is definitely an option you can look into.

Many girls use this income to pay for their school loans, buy a new house, get a new car, etc… There are even reports of cam girls (not necessarily on Chaturbate) who have turned this “side-hustle” into million-dollar-plus ventures.

Not bad considering you are very much safe at home having fun and talking to people for a few hours a day.

How Much Money Can You Make on Chaturbate (As A Girl)?

Right below I will tell you how much money you can make as a guy but of course; being a girl will definitely earn you a lot more money than guys (it’s just how it is).

To quote this website again – which is run by a couple who do camming, the girl can make around 50 tokens a day and he makes around 0-5 tokens per day so yeah; being a girl is definitely much more profitable in the camming business.

How Much Money Can You Make on Chaturbate (As A Guy)?

As I said; being a guy doesn’t earn you much (although you can still make a full-time income with this).

One thing you should know if you are a guy who is looking to get into camming by yourself (not with a cam-girl partner) is that most of the viewers who will tune in to watch you would most likely be homosexual men, and not women.

If that’s ok with you, then I am sure you will do alright and yes; you can easily get an extra $300 to $1000 a month on Chaturbate.

How Many Hours Do You Need To Work On Chaturbate?

how to make money as a cam girl

One of the best things about the cam business is that you can work as little or as much as you want.

However; from what I have gathered reading about the experiences of cam girls who make a living from this (not just earn a few extra bucks), you are going to at least need to dedicate 3 hours a day to this business, in which case you can easily make around $100+ a day.

I’ve even seen girls say they even do 8-hour shows but truth be told; nobody recommends this as even though you are not doing much, having thousands of people looking at you, chatting with you and requesting you to do things for a whole 8-hour shift can be quite the strenuous job.

If I were to give you an estimate, I would say you need to dedicate at least 3-5 hours to camming every day if you want to make good money with Chaturbate (by good I mean way better than working some BS job as a barista).

How The Chaturbate Tokens Work

Now that we’ve covered (approximately) how much money you can make on Chaturbate, let’s take a look at how the token system works and what you need to know before you jump into this business.

The token-numbers I shared above of the top earners are what you can earn as a broadcaster on Chaturbate, but of course; since you are using Chaturbate and their readily-available audience of millions of people; they would already have taken their cut, which is 50%.

The more you earn, the more Chaturbate earns as well.

To breakdown the Chaturbate token value, you can use the following as a very close approximation:

20 tokens = $1;
100 tokens = $5;
500 tokens = $25;
1000 tokens = $50;
10000 tokens = $500;

This means that a Chaturbate token (for the model, after fees) is about 5 cents.

How Does Chaturbate Pay Its Models?

There are 4 ways Chaturbate will be able to pay you (and you will be paid twice a month for your earnings). These are:

  • Direct Deposit,
  • Firstchoice Pay,
  • Paxum,
  • Check or Wire payments

How Old Do You Have To Be To Do Camming On Chaturbate?

Just in case this has to be said; the camming business is only for adults, so you MUST be 18 years of age (or more).

If you are reading this and not yet of age, this is not something you should be looking at just yet and yes; in case you are wondering;

Chaturbate will request you verify your age by uploading documents to prove to them that you are an adult who understands the pros and cons of getting in the cam business.

Let’s now look at some of the pros while we’re at it…

4 Reasons Why Chaturbate Camming Is A Great Side-Hustle

the benefits of becoming a cam girl

✔️ Work From Home (Or Anywhere Else)

The best thing about making money online is that you can make money from home.

This is what first attracted me to the idea of making money online and I am sure it’s what has attracted you to the camming business (apart from the huge earning potential of course)

✔️ Be Your Own Boss

Another thing is that you are your own boss, which is quite a thing to say especially since many of these cam girls are very young.

I say that both as a pro and as a con though as working from home and being your own boss certainly does come with responsibilities that you need to be ready for.

✔️ Get Paid Twice A Month

As I mentioned above, as a Chaturbate cam girl you will be getting paid twice a month, which is way better than having to wait till the end of the month to get paid for your work.

✔️ Protect Yourself

One thing that you may also be happy to hear is that Chaturbate offers you the option to block viewers from the same country/state/town you are from.

This means that nobody has to know about what you do and you do run the risk of being watched by somebody you know (a family member for example).

I’m sure Chaturbate is not the only cam site that offers this feature, but it’s great to see that they’ve thought this thing through as surely; you would not want to know your weird Uncle Tom is your top token spender.

4 Things You Can Do To Increase Your Income On Chaturbate

how to earn chaturbate tokens

Let’s now tap into my side of expertise here and look at some ways you can exponentially increase your income online as a cam girl model.

I have been a “student” of the make-money-online business for many years so I am sure I can share with you a few tips that would easily make you a lot more money with Chaturbate.

Use social media to your advantage

Many camgirls use platforms such as Instagram, Twitter, and Snapchat to connect with fans and build a third-party platform away from Chaturbate where you can then “own‘ outright.

This is great and you really should consider building your very own audience/platform and slowly getting off Chaturbate (once you have built a huge following). This will allow you to earn 100% of the income earned from your efforts.

Creating an email newsletter is also great to let people know of upcoming shows you are doing, thus making sure your fans show up and send you money.

Sell packages

Chaturbate also allows you to host privately recorded videos that members can then buy.

This is another great way to earn more money with Chaturbate as you do not have to be camming live to be able to make money.

The best thing about this is that you can set the price (in tokens) for these items and you get to keep more of it (percentage-wise) than just camming live.

Request gifts from your viewers

Many camgirls also create Amazon Wishlists which they then publish to their audience with the hopes of somebody buying them the products they want.

As weird as it may sound to some, there are actually people who would not mind spoiling some girl (who they likely will never meet) with some expensive thank-you gifts.

Consider doing two-way private shows

If you really want to make the big bucks, then you may look into doing two-way private shows at some point.

What You Need To Start Camming On Chaturbate

Last but not least, I also want to share with you what you need to be able to start making money with Chaturbate.

The 3 main basic things you are going to need are:

  • A proper laptop/desktop computer that is powerful enough to stream without interruptions.
  • A great high-definition camera, and maybe a great microphone as well.
  • Some sexy lingerie (of course you can also go butt-naked from the get-go)

Although those are the basics, you may also want to invest in the cam-girl standard sex toy; the Lovense Lush.

This incredible sex toy will allow viewers to control the vibrations you experience by how much tokens they send!

This allows for a more “intimate” experience for the viewers and of course; a lot more tokens for you.

“As much as you want”.

As you can see from this guide, there really is no limit to how much you can earn and you are actually free to go get started right now with a Chaturbate account and start camming (and making money).

I hope this post was informative and I wish you luck with your cam adventures.
