Billing and Payments
We handle the billing and credit card processing, so you don’t need a merchant account and you don’t need to worry about chargebacks and fraud. We can also pay your models directly, so you don’t have to deal with payroll, W-9 and 1099 forms or anything else. That way, you can focus on recruiting, training and managing your models and we’ll handle the rest. Here’s how it works:
- Each new customer can register on your website for free. Registering gives him unlimited viewing time in free chat.
- After registering, we offer the customer $6 worth of free credits for entering his credit card number. Each credit normally costs $1. We provide the free credits out of our share, so they cost you nothing. Once we have the customer’s credit card on file, he can buy more credits at the click of a button.
- We offer various incentives, and package deals to encourage customers to spend as much as possible, but we cover the cost of the incentives. We calculate your studio commissions based on the full retail price of the credits. For example, we might offer a customer a special deal of 100 credits for $75, but if he spends them on your model we’d calculate your studio share based on your percentage of the $100 retail price.
Chargebacks and Fraud
Chargebacks and fraud are a huge problem in the adult entertainment industry. That’s why it’s nearly impossible for a startup webcam company to get its own merchant account and it’s why companies like CC Bill exist. Unfortunately, CC Bill and other adult industry processors charge enormous transaction fees.
If you choose to work with us, we cover all the merchant account fees out of our percentage. Although we use advanced technology and various techniques to minimize the effect of fraud, it does still happen. In those instances, we deduct the commission from a fraudulent transaction out of your future commissions. The same is true for chargebacks, though unlike fraud, we can dispute chargebacks and we make every effort to avoid having to give back money and dock commissions.
- We issue payments twice each month, on the 10th and the 25th of the month, for the pay period ending ten days prior.
- We can pay your models directly, or we can pay the entire amount to your studio, in which case you’d have to pay your models. Most of our studios prefer that we pay their models directly, saving them the hassle of dealing with payroll and tax forms.
- We use Payoneer as our exclusive payment processor. With Payoneer, we can deposit money into virtually any bank account in the world for a fraction of the cost of wire transfers. If you don’t want to receive money in your bank account, Payoneer also offers a MasterCard debit card. If you choose that option, we’d pay you by loading your card. You could then withdraw money from any ATM or use the card anywhere MasterCard is accepted.
