It would be nice to have threads for everyone that can't get into model's only to get information on how to cam on Streamate more effectively.
So here we are!
Share any information about camming on Streamate.com or ask questions related to camming on SM here!

Important links of note:

https://www.camgirlwiki.com/wiki/Streamate <this wiki has tons of info from wonderful women on this forum, please read it thoroughly!
https://twitter.com/StreamateModels <this is Vanessa, the in house recruiter. You should, if at all possible, sign up under her if you can. She isn't a studio, and doesn't take any money from you.
http://streamaterecruiting.com/ <This is the site that Vanessa uses to recruit. Use the form there to sign up. It is NOT a studio and is the same as joining directly from streamate.com, except Vanessa can answer questions in a pinch if you've exhausted all other avenues and still need a question answered.

Models, please add anything of note and feel free to ask questions!

Correct me if I'm wrong, but I find this is almost the same thing with the Activity Feed feature they recently added. I have had video purchases once in a while but if they incorporated more flexibility and made it like an actual activity feed similar to the likings of Twitter or Instagram where customers can see what you're up to but also giving us the option to post content that can be viewed with gold purchase only, especially when it comes to photos since I believe it's just videos at the moment; would be great. I don't know how often SM has issues with performers attempting to redirect their customers to other platforms like I've read but that would probably help cut down on that I would think.

The Activity Feed and Fan Club could almost be made as one bundle where you can scroll through content and customers PPV, and/or offer to subscribe at a discounted recurring monthly fee.

I think if SM could work out the specs and customizability in these areas to be more user and customer friendly there is a lot of potential especially for those who may not necessarily want to spend per minute but still want to view/purchase your content on your feed like you mentioned... Now I just need to join their tech support/development team! 😂
They've recently added in the option for paid photos of $1-10 in the Activity Feed as well, so it's not just videos for purchase anymore, and explicit photos can be sold too! There's a limit of 20 paid photos a day, which I think is nice to keep it from looking too spam-y.

I agree that the paid Activity Feed content and the Fan Clubs could be integrated together somehow for a better user experience. I think that ManyVids has something similar implemented, but the way that they named stuff can be a bit confusing (They have a "Membership" for streaming videos for a certain amount of time, and "MV Crush Club" subscriptions for access to selected videos, photos, and messages.)
IMO I think that Streamate will move towards this kind of setup in the future, since users are becoming more familiar with subscription services on other platforms.

Good to know! I never really looked into the Activity Feed as much but I do see photo with price option range as you mentioned.. Will definitely give this a try, thanks!

I couldn't edit my last comment, but to add to that, I'm just wondering how photo purchases actually work - Have you tried this feature @KayleeGraves
I tried uploading an image through Activity Feed with description/price and it was approved however, I don't see it on my profile page and I asked customers to see if they noticed and they didn't see anything either.. Maybe doing something wrong?

It doesn't stay on your own profile page. Users have a separate section for the Activity Feeds of their favorite models.
In order to see your posts, they need to add you as a favorite first. Then there's a 'heart' tab at the top of each page, which will take them there to their feed when they click on it. It's a long vertical scrolling page that sorts all their favorite models' posts by most recent.

Why does Jerkmate promote that the members can meet us to have sex with us?

I've had someone waste my time saying that I have all his details so I should contact him if I want to have sex with him. I also had another guy today who was asking me if I'd have sex with him while in free chat. What is giving them this impression that we are escorts? Or not even escorts, like some kind of free sexual service?

Is there some marketing out there that is implying we are available for sex with them? because for some reason that seems to be what they think, and obviously us models aren't allowed to share details or meet with anyone so it's not us saying that.


Also it would be nice to know why we are allocated a percentage? and what this is referring to?

Sometimes just for fun and laughs, when they send me a ridiculous proposal like I had the other day a dude (who has never tipped me) on MV said “I’m gonna be in Turkey next week can u meet” so being that I am in USA I looked up flights to his country and screenshot the cost of a round trip flight, and then sent a cheeky message about sending me a tip to cover the cost of a flight.

He is not only wrong in presuming that I actually had the time to do such an event … he is wrong is presuming I would have an interest in meeting a stranger for sex.

@ElektraDivine I don't know about the other stuff (by the way, eeeew lol) but I think the percentage has to do with the "survey" you click thru on sign up. Like where it asks race/age/body etc and you choose the options. I think its a % how much the models match your "criteria"...
Ohhh ok, that makes a bit of sense tbf. Still a bit gross, and dehumanises us quite a bit but I suppose that is Jerkmates vibe haha.

As far as I can tell, Jerkmate has been all about dehumanization and they've been doing it since they started. Originally their campaigns boasted things like "These sluts will do anything you say" and it caused us all sooo much headache and heartache.

Not sure if this has been discussed but i'm curious to try offering the phone/cps feature on SM. Anyone have experience/feedback on this feature?

I'm a little confused and hesitant since SM states that they redirect the call to you so the user doesn't have your actual number and that there is no charges for performers or guests, however then it contradicts that statement saying that there are charges per minute?

If anyone can clarify this and whether it can only be local calls, etc. I am in Canada and obviously deal with international customers so if I did try out the feature I don't want to be surprised with a huge bill at the end of my cellphone billing cycle otherwise it kind of defeats the purpose of offering it.

Thanks!

it's a feature available for private. i haven't done phone in years on streamate since they fixed their c2c audio to not be garbage. streamate reroutes the call to your phone with an 886 number. it's 100% confidential. im not sure what type of number it would be for canada, or if they use a US number and you get hit with international charges.

I have used the service and everything Audri says right. I was not charged additional and when they call you don’t hear it right away it’s something like “would you accept this call … “ I forgot what it says but then there is a hold for a minute and THEN you chat with them. I think the customers who have bad sound love this feature but I have some that do this so I offer it if anyone on paid or exclusive asks.

Hey everyone, one of my toys is dying and I need to replace it. So far I have only used interactive toys from Lovense, but I'm wondering if I should try out kiiroo this time since there are a lot of connectivity issues with Lovense. Has anyone used both to compare? Or have an opinion in general about kiiroo with streamate? TIA

Some weird glitches that may or may not be limited to the Firefox browser:

1. Certain streams are upside down (orientation is correct in the thumbnail preview, but not in the actual room).
2. Text messages in exclusive chat (and presumably elsewhere) aren't seen by the model unless they are very short in length.

Anyone else notice these?

Yep.

1. When I am streaming from my phone, people often tell me this even though I have the phone orientation correctly. I'll change it, and then the others who said it was normal have the same issue.
2. A lot of messages in my regular chat aren't popping up from other members as well as in exclusive. I noticed this started yesterday for me though.

Hi all,

New to the forum, but have been camming on SM since about January.

Is there any way to know when SM contest weeks/bonus events will be in advance?
Would really like to plan some (non-work) bits and pieces over the next few months, but want to keep these events in mind.
Are they the same week every month or something? I haven't been keeping track...

Thanks! 🧡

The best way I can think of estimating when a contest is going to happen is mapping out their past contests in prior years. This isn’t always accurate though… and they only really give about 5-7 days notice.
But in general, they do a contest once every month.

@ClarissaCams Yes, this (above) is what I do too. Not always 100% accurate but fairly accurate. I attached a screenshot of where I go to see it. Once on the news tab, I just have to scroll back through different years. If there is a faster way of doing it than that, someone please let me know too though! :)

So I have mapped out for the rest of the year a guesstimate of when contests might happen. If anyone is interested, let me know, I’ll send it ya.

(Boredom at its finest for me 😂 🙃)
I'll take it. Thanks so much!

For some reason contests always happen when I get my period, even when its a week early or late, for a whole year like this. Not an exact science but I am willing to send anyone my moon cycle calendar! 🤣🤣!

Joking aside, I would love it if you could send it to me. Glad you found a way to stay occupied during yet another slow contest week, excellent work.

So my latest August calendar got rejected for copyrighted material. @Catalina SM if you could please help me understand what is wrong with this most current calendar, that'd be helpful. I don't see anything wrong with my calendar, it suffices all of the approval requirements and it doesn't violate any TOS either... The picture is mine too since I guess I can only upload photos that contain myself in it.

Sorry to harp on this, but my calendars were rarely rejected before, however, lately it has been constant. My regulars and new members find that my monthly calendar and schedule is helpful for them to schedule exclusives with me and when to expect me to be gone.
